There’s no denying it: 2021 is proving to be a golden year for outdoor furniture, outdoor kitchens and garden or terrace accessories. This is because – thanks to the lockdown of 2020 and the first months of this year, habits of conceiving the living spaces have changed, shifting, for those who can, towards openings to the outside. There’s no denying it: 2021 is proving to be a golden year for outdoor furniture, outdoor kitchens and garden or terrace accessories. This is because – thanks to the lockdown of 2020 and the first months of this year, habits of conceiving the living spaces have changed, shifting, for those who can, towards openings to the outside.
Let’s see what trends are and will continue to be in vogue for this year.
Outdoor kitchens trends: more focus on eco-friendly materials
The first trend that can be noticed among buyers of outdoor furniture and kitchens is to opt for eco-friendly materials. Indeed, in contrast to previous years, more space is given to the question of how much a material can pollute rather than another. There has been a decrease in the use of plastic and plexiglass to the advantage of steel and new alloys capable of high performance, hygienic and, at the same time, aesthetically pleasing and non-polluting. This also applies to garden furniture: in fact, preference is given to objects made of natural or organic fibres, such as bamboo, rattan and hemp. Attention to the environment is also reflected in the choice of lighting for outdoor kitchens: solar lights that are recharged by sunlight for perfect illumination in the evening.
Outdoor kitchens: the real stars of this year
And it is precisely the outdoor kitchens that are the real stars of the trends of this year. The trends of purchase were actually already quite clear towards the end of last year, but in 2021 the house has become a real living space tout court. This has led to have more care and attention for garden and terrace furniture or to finally spend more time by the pool. Outdoor kitchens are therefore enjoying the boom in general approval, which is also confirmed by the start of their production in more affordable versions, just like our brand OF outdoorkitchens. This gives importance to the durability and reliability of the components and materials, while allowing a saving through the modularity of the components. Barbecues, outdoor sinks, grills and outdoor burners have become a must for many people, perhaps following the discovery of the gourmet food in the lockdown period.
Custom design kitchens: a hit among celebrities
The absolute favourite outdoor kitchens are still the high quality and designer ones, especially when it comes to custom steel kitchens. Indeed, they combine basic comfort with perfect customization of the furniture, which suits the needs of the customer. Lastly, the barbecue is a great success in all its forms: small, large, grill or charcoal, with a steel base and steel or cast iron grills. In short, the space is reinterpreted to be lived completely, in complete relaxation and immersed in the tranquility of your own home.
