The sustainable outdoor kitchen
A sustainable outdoor kitchen for the perfect holiday feeling at home
The outdoor kitchen has been on the rise for years. Indeed in some circles, it is almost common to have one. Though why would an outdoor kitchen suit you?
The first reason is a simple one. Cooking indoors in the summer isn’t always pleasant when we have high temperatures. The second reason; it is much more fun to eat outside than inside. In the United Kingdom, this isn’t always possible due to our changing weather throughout the year but when you get the chance, you usually want to make the most of it.
Practical and easy
Nowadays, there is a choice of outdoor kitchens, so you can choose between a modern or classic style. Most outdoor kitchens consist of a grill, sink, preparation counter, sometimes a pizza oven and for those who want even more luxury, a bar and refrigerator. If you are interested in DIY, you can make it yourself, otherwise, there are enough specialists in this field to make an outdoor kitchen that is tailor-made for you.
The materials of your outdoor kitchen must be able to survive well in all weather conditions. Scaffolding wood is a commonly used option but unfortunately not very durable due to its vulnerability to moisture. A more suitable material is Accoya wood or Medite Tricoya Extreme MDF board. This wood has been preserved through an environmentally friendly acetylation process so that it hardly shrinks or swells and has an outdoor warranty of 50 years against rot. This means that not only can you enjoy an environmentally friendly choice but your outdoor kitchen can be enjoyed by future generations. If you choose a countertop, then limestone is recommended for this. Granite is also a popular option (but more expensive). If you want to create a Mediterranean atmosphere, you can also opt for Portuguese concrete tiles.
A healthier choice
You might almost forget but cooking outside is healthier for us. If you cook indoors, the house can fill with food odours and warm fumes. Of course you won’t be bothered by that outside. In good weather, you don’t have to go indoors to cook a meal, while everybody else enjoys the outdoors. You can prepare and cook a meal on your outdoor kitchen alongside good company. It is also the belief of many that cooking and eating in the garden is just a bit more fun than indoors. With an outdoor kitchen, you also cook healthier because the ingredients are grilled directly above the heat source, without adding extra fat or oil.
So, get the holiday feeling in your garden with an outdoor kitchen and surprise friends and family with the best dishes!
