Outdoor Living

Being outdoors so often throughout the year is a luxury we tend to take for granted here in South Florida. Outdoor living is a huge way of life for many people and is a great entertaining advantage. There are a wide variety of options and today I want to share some of the outdoor kitchens I have found.


One great option is to add a pizza oven. This is a great addition to any outdoor space. It can be added to an existing kitchen or just a standalone feature. I personally like the more rustic looking oven, but there are many options to choose from when it comes to these wood burning ovens, like choosing natural stone, granite, reclaimed stone and brick, etc…

If you really like to entertain and plan on spending more to invest in your outdoor space you may want to consider having all the extras. Besides the basics you could also get a range/oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge (small and possibly hidden). Using natural stone, marble and granite are great outdoor choices and have loads of color options when building this extra living space.


Seating is an additional consideration when planning your outdoor remodel or addition. I like unusual things which can add conversation pieces to the area. Using up cycled items you can make a variety of seating like the bench below or a tee pee hammock!
