New Construction Trends: Outdoor Kitchens & Outdoor Dining

Outdoor kitchens and dining areas make outdoor entertaining easy and convenient. The ideal space for gathering with friends and family, the alfresco setting also provides ample space for guests to lounge comfortably while the host cooks up something delicious in the outdoor kitchen. Let’s take a closer look at what makes outdoor dining and kitchens such a fantastic addition to new construction homes in Florida.

A Must-Have for Hosting

Spend your time with guests outside enjoying the gorgeous Florida sunshine! An outdoor kitchen and dining room spaces are ideal for keeping up the conversation with your friends and family while getting the meal ready.

Enhancing the indoor-outdoor connection, adding a large, extended lanai off the great room is also a great way to showcase all your home has to offer.

Fostering A Sense of Community

The pre-World War II neighborhoods in Southwest Florida boasted large, open porches running the length of the front facade and sometimes wrapping around one or both sides of the house. These homes were inviting for neighbors, beckoning everyone to come and spend the afternoon sipping iced tea or lemonade on the porch and building a strong sense of community.

At Babcock Ranch, we want to ensure you enjoy a similar sense of community with your own private outdoor space. That’s why we offer homes that feature modern, welcoming backyards to encourage social interaction and connectivity with your loved ones.
