Outdoor Kitchens in Jupiter, FL
With the average winter temperature in Jupiter, FL, at 74 degrees, snow is just about impossible. The last time snow fell in South Florida was in 1977! It is no wonder then that residents of Jupiter enjoy Palm Beach County’s 50-mile shoreline, 81 parks offering over 8,000 acres of land for exploration by bicycle, boat, foot, or horseback, and 160 golf courses and 1,000 tennis courts. Another way to take full advantage of this balmy climate is with an outdoor kitchen.
Where to start
Let’s face it, an outdoor living space is a glorious luxury. That needn’t, however, mean that it is out of reach of your budget. A good way to start the process of creating your outdoor kitchen is to draw up a list of items you would like to have – from a pizza oven to a bar area. Next, read through your list, and mark the items as either necessities or nice-to-haves. This prioritized list will be a foundation from which you can start planning your design and tweaking your budget. This design checklist will guide you further.
What to look for
Many popular inclusions in an outdoor living space include a grill or gas cooktop, a pizza oven, compact refrigerators and stainless steel cabinets, a sink, an island and custom countertops, a bar, and dining space.
Pay careful attention to your walls and ceiling (or lack thereof). Plumbing, electrical and gas lines need to be carefully planned for maximum functionality and minimum expense. Planning for later additions from your nice-to-have list should be done at the outset of the project.
