The birds are chirping happily, the flowers pollen is beginning to be felt and the days are getting longer, indicating that spring is coming. Do you know what this means? That it’s time to dust off your patio furniture and prepare your garden for relaxation and entertainment. Are you thinking of turning your outdoor space into something more than a typical outdoor room? Then read our article today.
In that case you might be a little confused at first, having to decide whether or not you need a complete outdoor kitchen or get by with a simple grill station. We might be a little biased, but if you are planning to invest in your patio, garden or terrace space, an outdoor kitchen might be the right choice for you. It is in fact an environment that combines all the elements of an indoor kitchen, allowing you to store all the cooking and grilling utensils outside. This will allow you the freedom to socialize and join the fun while cooking, instead of always having to go back and forth with the indoor kitchen. Moreover, the extra space on the worktop offers an option for a bar area, making it even easier to chat while preparing a banquet.
We can help you create an outdoor kitchen that not only matches the existing architecture and external landscape in your living space, but also emphasises your personal tastes. And if you are the kind of homeowner who likes to be involved in the choice of design elements up to the handles of the wardrobe doors, then you are in luck. OF outdoor kitchens are available in different styles of doors and finishes that will leave your guests speechless. Not to mention the many accessories and furniture, which will give the finishing touches of style. In the meantime, here are five tips to make the most of your outdoor kitchen in the spring months.
1) Use a discreet insect repellent
Prevent your guests’ discomfort by blocking insects. Decorative burners that repel pests can be discreet but effective; some even double the light for outdoor lighting. Not bad, right?
2) Never be short of shading systems
This time of the year brings the beauty of the sun, flowery scents and mild temperatures. Whether you choose a pergola, a gazebo, a retractable awning or a large parasol, a functional shading system will help you keep the party going, regardless of weather conditions.
3) Aim for beautiful crockery
Outdoor crockery gives clues to others about your attention to detail. The choice of a table positioning that integrates the seat cushions and shading system will make your entertainment space an all-round design success.
4) Choose comfortable and weatherproof seating
Nothing can make your patio or garden cozier than a beautiful armchair to sit in. Cushions in bright colours or with patterns for relaxing outdoors can make the space your new favourite “living” place.
5) An always convenient outdoor kitchen
Outdoor rooms are an extension of the house, so keep everything you might need outside. Outdoor kitchens by OF outdoorkitchens, for example, are designed in such a way as to keep your drinks cool, your food warm, plus your guests will be continually impressed by the aesthetics of your elegant outdoor cooking area.
