When you hear the word “kitchen,” you probably automatically think of the room inside your home that functions as a space for cooking, eating, and spending time indoors.
But in recent years, we have increasingly sought to shift our lives from inside our homes to our outdoor spaces. With the pandemic, we’ve all spent so much time indoors that many of us have been looking for ways to enjoy the great outdoors, even if it’s just in our backyards.
So the furniture that we usually associate with indoor living, such as sofas and rugs, has also started to be used outdoors. As a result, we have sought to recreate some of our favorite spaces – such as our living rooms, kitchens and offices, in our outdoor spaces.
One trend that has emerged from this is the idea of outdoor kitchens. Whether you’re just looking to create a seamless transition between your kitchen and outdoor space – or looking to go all the way and add cooking and dining functionality to your garden – many of us have enjoyed spending time eating, drinking and socializing outdoors.
As the weather warms up and we look to spend more time in the garden again, you may be thinking about how you can turn your outdoor space into a kitchen. Maybe you want to cook in the garden or entertain guests for canapes and cocktails?
