Small as it is our garden, it is possible to find endless solutions to make yourself a kitchenette and extend the beautiful season to infinity!
For all sizes
Even for those who have only a few square meters available, in fact, there are extremely practical, functional, highly technological solutions, which adapt to our outdoor spaces and our pockets, without forcing us to do those hateful shuttles between inside and outside, kitchen and diners , often risking stumbling, falling, and above all preventing us from fully enjoying the company of our guests. But thanks to the models on the market it is now possible to avoid all this and enrich our small garden by remaining an excellent host!
Not just barbecue
When you think of 'eating outdoors', the thought goes right there: sausages, hot dogs, chicken legs, vegetables: all washed down with delicious sauces, often accompanied by an enviable selection of beers and sugary drinks. It's the classic barbecue, imported from the American tradition and perfectly integrated with our gastronomic habits! But even the old 'fornacella' has undergone a significant evolution: on the market there are in fact light structures such as barbecues, easy to transport throughout the garden, with a winking design and an eco-friendly heart, able to cook much more than just a row of sausages! These are real outdoor kitchens, launched on the market by the major companies of household appliances, practical, functional, able even to blend into our green corner, thanks to the presence of rooms that host plants and garden accessories. There are small, super compact, suitable for the needs of an average family, or with three four burners, for those who are in the habit of organizing large outdoor lunches with many guests. Often they are complemented by a tub for washing dishes, and compartments for storing dishes, pots and napkins. Partially demountable, they can easily be stored in a small room. The costs are not very low, a high level kitchen can exceed 2,000 euros, but the quality is guaranteed, the materials are first class guaranteeing an investment that lasts for years.
Mon amour masonry
If our garden has a small conservatory area, usually the solution to be preferred is always that of the built-in kitchen. Partially protected by a roof, but in perfect connection with the external space, the built-in kitchen, if built with care and elegance, can change the appearance of our garden, enriching it and transforming it into a real extension of our house, allowing us to extend the first, warm, spring afternoons to infinity. If you are a do-it-yourself expert, you can build it yourself, but it is always better to rely on a small, trustworthy company that supports you not only in the construction of walls, but above all in safely transporting electric cables and pipes for the water discharge. In fact, these are structures that will be permanently placed outside our house, often in contact with aggressive weather conditions it is therefore necessary for the work to be carried out in complete safety for the guests of the house! The undisputed advantage of this type of kitchen lies in the fact that it can be completely customized: colors, taps, coatings, steels, decorations. Rustic or more modern, colorful or camouflaged in greenery, our kitchen will respond exactly to our needs for space as well as aesthetics. If we choose to build an angular kitchen, we will need a smaller space, a bathtub with drainer, a zone with fires, a small refrigerator, and usually a worktop large enough to prepare tasty dishes will suffice. For those with a passion for pizza - and they are many - the oven is also essential. Whether cooked in an electric oven or in a wood-fired oven, the pizza is a moment of celebration and joy and is always a quick and practical solution to bring together many guests without having to lick over their brains about what to cook again to please young and old. Because it is weatherproof, it is necessary that the built-in kitchen is made with the highest quality materials: rolled steels, gres, rainproof and UV rays coatings; the costs can vary from 1,500 to 2,500 euros, but as we said, to the advantage of an absolute personalization.
Easier with prefabricated
If tiles and wall coverings are not our passion, in outdoor furniture stores it is possible to find prefabricated kitchens that are also very attractive and at affordable prices: usually no more than 1,000 euros. They are prefabricated and pre-fitted structures, they have all the practicality of the 'turnkey'. They are usually made on the basis of a project provided by the client and agreed with the seller, and are delivered ready to be laid on the ground with a few quick operations that require little labor. Only partially customizable, they offer everything you need in a traditional kitchen: burners, sink, waste containers, space needed to safely store all the accessories. Often equipped with wooden or metal canopies, they go well with any type of outdoor furniture and are often equipped with a pizza oven (wood or electric), a woodshed, a barbecue, a rotisserie and everything that can make our stay more enjoyable. outdoors. They can also be found online at advantageous prices, but a higher amount must be considered for transport and above all be sure that you have entrusted yourself to a serious retailer who sends us a product that complies with our order.
