Tiki Huts and Outdoor Kitchens
Outdoor Kitchens and Tiki Huts
Bring your backyard together with a functional outdoor kitchen or a stunning tiki hut. Whether you need a place to wait out light rain or want to cook outdoors for friends and families, these amenities will make your pool parties and backyard barbeques the talk of the neighborhood.
What Is an Outdoor Kitchen?
An outdoor kitchen gives you a place to prepare, serve and enjoy meals while spending time outdoors. With an outdoor kitchen, you can expand your backyard living and entertaining area.
The features you install in an outdoor kitchen depend on your goals and entertaining style. Outdoor kitchens are most commonly paired with our luxury pergolas or backyard tiki huts to take your property to the next level and provide much-needed shade from the hot South Florida sun. If you are looking to turn your backyard into a relaxing tropical oasis we recommend incorporating your outdoor kitchen into a tiki hut to vacation in your own backyard!
Benefits of an Outdoor Kitchen or Luxury Backyard Tiki Hut
Kitchens or tiki huts for the backyard have multiple benefits. An outdoor kitchen:
- Creates an outdoor living space: Double or triple your home’s living space by incorporating an outdoor kitchen into your patio’s design. The kitchen makes a second area for cooking and meal prep, which can be perfect when you have picky eaters or when everyone wants something different for dinner.
- Is ideal for entertaining: Your outdoor kitchen or patio bar can be perfect for entertaining. You can host barbecues, pizza nights or cocktail hours at home. Since the food and drink prep is outdoors, your home stays clean and pristine.
- Lets you enjoy Florida’s beautiful weather: Who wants to stay inside when the sun is shining and the temperature’s warm? An outdoor kitchen enables you to get outdoors to appreciate the beautiful weather.
- Keeps your home cool: With an outdoor oven, you can cook pizzas, burgers and other meals on the hottest summer days without sending your air conditioning into overdrive.
- Cuts down on takeout: If you don’t feel inspired to cook most days of the week, you may turn to takeout more often than you’d like. With your new outdoor kitchen, you may find yourself excited to cook, meaning you don’t have to get takeout.
Luxury Outdoor Kitchen Designs
What should you include in your outdoor kitchen or tiki hut? Some practical features to have are:
- Oven: You can install a standard outdoor oven or a pizza oven to cook outside in the summer heat.
- Grill: Incorporate a grill into your outdoor kitchen to make it the perfect spot for barbecues
- Dishwasher and sink: Cut down on your workload and avoid your dirty dishes and pans to your main kitchen to clean up. Include a dishwasher in your design to cut down on your workload.
- Refrigerator: Keep perishable food cool and safe by adding a small fridge to your outdoor kitchen.
- Wine fridge: A wine fridge keeps all your favorite blends at the perfect temperature.
- Seating: Design seating, such as a bar area or table, that fits your family’s needs and the friends you want to entertain a bar area or table.
- Dish and glass storage: Make preparation easier by keeping your outdoor dishes and drinkware right in your tiki hut or outdoor kitchen.
