As we joyously celebrate Australia Day 2014 – we will all fire up our BBQ’s right! So maybe it’s time to consider extending that outdoor living space with a kitchen.
Australian house design – is about the merging of inside and outside living and entertaining, through the inclusion of alfresco dining areas, and open wall design. So it is inevitability that we wish to cook outside now, no longer being excluded from the activity occurring outside.
BBQ’s have emerged as mini-kitchens in their own right – able to prepare gourmet meals right there on the patio. We are opting to make the most of this outdoor lifestyle through design, so what is an outdoor kitchen?
Simply, an outdoor kitchen is just that – a kitchen built in an outdoor space. Outdoor kitchens might include anything from permanent bench spaces, BBQs, pizza ovens, grill plates, sinks and bar fridges, all the way down to ovens, stove tops, and dishwashers. Oh, and if a male has anything to do with the design of course – there would be a bar with beer on tap. So no matter what the appliance, if you want to eat, drink and be merry in your outdoor living space – then there is probably a use for that item in your outdoor kitchen.
