The need to have in the garden all the comforts available in your home has led to the creation of kitchens that can be installed without any problem on the outside. The garden kitchen allows you to prepare both a quick snack and a lunch, as it is equipped with all the necessary accessories. We can classify garden kitchens according to the model chosen: there are more complete models and basic models on the market. Often, the garden kitchen is flanked by the barbecue. It is a structure where there are one or two stoves with a grill next to it for roasting meat. It is a very compact and practical model for those who do not have very large spaces, but do not want to give up the pleasure of being able to cook in the garden. It is a garden kitchen which, however, is not equipped with a sink or a refrigerator. To take advantage of these other conveniences, you need to install a garden sink and use a small portable fridge. Then there are other models, equipped with all the typical accessories of a real kitchen, and may or may not include a barbecue.
Materials and forms
The material mainly used to make garden kitchens is steel. It is a very solid material, impact resistant, easy to clean and above all suitable for the external environment. The garden kitchen can have a round or rectangular shape. The design, in this case, has helped to create models that could be not only highly functional, but also aesthetically pleasing to be placed in the garden. A round-shaped kitchen, which takes up less space than a rectangular-shaped kitchen, can be placed anywhere and has a sink, a cooking area, a small countertop, a refrigerator and comfortable drawers where you can store the crockery. The sink, to occupy less space can also be retractable, so that the garden kitchen, once closed, becomes very compact. Unlike what you can believe, both appliances and faucets are carefully chosen to offer the same performance as a traditional kitchen. The fires are powered by gas, either through a small cylinder or by connecting the kitchen directly to the network you have at home
Garden kitchens are defined as they can easily be left outside even during the winter period, they are not damaged and need to be covered with cloths, also because they have a considerable weight so it would not be possible to move them easily. Some models, in addition to steel, also use wood, a natural material that is treated with substances that make it impermeable to water without covering its natural veins. The combination of steel and wood is a combination that can be like not to like, it is only a question of aesthetics.
Outdoor kitchen comfort
Having available in the garden what is necessary to be able to cook makes the outdoor space certainly more exploitable and this means that the garden itself becomes a place to be able to live fully from the spring. The kitchen is an element that allows you to complete the outdoor furniture together with the barbecue. If you don't have a kitchen in the garden, you should only limit yourself to excellent grills. The garden kitchen is an element of great practicality and comfort, since it allows you to make any dish, as well as having drinks and food always fresh thanks to the fridge. When choosing a garden kitchen, keep in mind that it is essential to also have a space where you can work. If it is placed next to the barbecue corner, it is better not to install it too close to the dining area, to avoid unpleasant smoke emissions. These kitchens, as well as in the garden, can also be installed on large terraces and this means that even those without a green space can enjoy the functionality of an outdoor kitchen. Before turning the kitchen back on after the winter season, it is good to check that everything is in place.
