What are the main uses of an outdoor kitchen?

When summer arrives, what could be better than cooking, dining and entertaining outdoors? For many people, eating and drinking with family and friends in the garden on a hot day is one of life’s greatest pleasures. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that outdoor kitchens have risen in popularity over the years. Read on to discover the main uses of an outdoor kitchen.

Expand your living space

An outdoor kitchen allows you to expand your home, merging your indoor and outdoor areas brilliantly. The trend for extending our homes into our gardens began happening long before Covid-19, however, the pandemic certainly gave it added impetus. Many of us developed a new appreciation for our gardens over lockdown, spending more time in them than ever before. Outdoor kitchens allow people to continue their love affair with their gardens, cooking, dining and entertaining alfresco whenever they choose.

Family dinners

On those warm summer days, no-one wants to be stuck inside slaving away in the kitchen. Fortunately, an outdoor kitchen means you can move family mealtimes outside, letting you eat together in the fresh air at any time of the day. With an induction or gas hob, you can cook a range of meals that everyone will enjoy. There’s a fridge and sink integrated into Elfin outdoor kitchens. The only question is, who will be doing the washing up?!

Entertaining friends

An outdoor kitchen is tailor-made for entertaining friends. Serving as the focal point of the garden, people can socialise around it, with the option to sit down and relax once the food is ready. Elfin’s outdoor kitchens come with not just cooking facilities but a refrigerator too, allowing you to keep drinks cool for guests.

Keep mess and smells outside

When you cook meals outdoors, you can help to keep your home free from mess and smells. Spills from food and drink aren’t so much of a concern outside as they are inside and may not need immediate attention. You don’t need to worry about cooking smells taking over your living space and finding their way into furniture either. An outdoor kitchen can keep odours from food outdoors.
