Outdoor kitchens: how to organise the perfect garden dining room.

The arrival of the good weather brings with it the desire to live outdoors and spend unforgettable moments in the company of friends and family. An outdoor kitchen is the ideal place to prepare delicious meals and make the most of your outdoor space.

But how do you arrange the perfect outdoor dining room? In this article, we will explore some suggestions on how to create a cosy and exciting outdoor dining area, taking advantage of the proposals of great outdoor furniture brands such as Roda, Fantin, Dedon and Talenti.

Choose the right spot.

There is nothing nicer than spending time outdoors, surrounded by nature and tranquillity, enjoying a meal with friends and family. That's why it's important to create a cosy and functional environment in which to enjoy convivial moments outdoors.

To organise the perfect outdoor dining room, the first thing to do is to choose the best location for it. Ideally, it should be a sheltered area that can provide some shade during the hottest hours of the day and is easily accessible from the house. In addition, it is important to consider the layout of the space and the possible presence of trees or plants that may interfere with the installation of the outdoor kitchen.

To obtain shade and privacy, it is possible to use partitions or shading devices, such as those proposed by Talenti: the brand's parasols are available in different fabrics and colours, perfect for any outdoor style. They are easy to close and are easy to install.

How to furnish an outdoor kitchen

Once the ideal location has been chosen, it is time to think about the outdoor kitchen. Today, there are many innovative and design solutions to meet everyone's needs, from the simplest to the most sophisticated. The important thing is to get the measurements of your garden right and choose a style that everyone likes, elegant and fashionable.

Roda is a leading brand in the design and distribution of outdoor kitchens. Roda's outdoor furniture solutions are Made in Italy and are inspired by a love of cooking. A Roda designer garden kitchen combines elegant shapes and high performance in a complete solution, characterised by the perfect composition and modularity of its various elements.

With the outdoor kitchens, RODA's long experience in the search for durable, high-performance outdoor finishes and materials has reached a new and exciting milestone. Norma is Roda's new flagship outdoor kitchen designed by Rodolfo Dordoni.
Norma is modular and multifunctional in nature: its independent structure allows it to be adapted to outdoor spaces with different dimensions and types of furniture. The outdoor kitchen consists of a module with sink and another with cooker, available with fixed feet or on castors. To these two modules, a peninsula can be added, which hangs above the sink module, to extend the working or dining area, where one can sit like in a bar.

In general, an outdoor kitchen should be equipped with a gas hob, sink and refrigerator, but other features such as an oven, barbecue or induction hob can also be added. All of these are solutions that Roda can help you incorporate into your outdoor dining area.

Complete your kitchen with shelves or modular furniture, such as those proposed by Fantin, which are colourful, resistant, aesthetic and offer even more space for cooking and storing utensils comfortably.

Furniture complements.

Choose a large, comfortable table, perhaps made of wood or wrought iron, combined with comfortable, sturdy chairs. You will need them not only to receive your guests, but also to make the most of the table surface while you are cooking. You can also add colourful cushions and accessories such as candles, lanterns and rugs to create a warm and cosy atmosphere.

Be sure to choose weather-resistant and durable materials such as iron, metal, wood, hard plastic and water-repellent fabrics that are easy to clean and dry.

Your outdoor kitchen should also have comfortable, attractive and functional furniture elements:

  • Special waste collection bins to keep the area clean and tidy.
  • Cooking utensils are essential for preparing meals. It is advisable to have at least one set of pots and pans, kitchen knives, bowls and cutlery at hand.
  • It is important to protect the outdoor kitchen from the weather and the sun. It is advisable to have suitable covers to protect the cooker and cooking utensils.
  • Finally, you can add some accessories such as sturdy plastic plates and glasses, chair cushions, rugs and curtains to create a cosy and personalised atmosphere.

Take care of the little details

To complete the perfect outdoor dining area, you can add decorative elements such as plants, flowers or even a water fountain. In this way, the dining area will become a place where you can spend pleasant moments of relaxation and conviviality.

To achieve these brilliant results in your garden or terrace, take a look at the proposals of two great outdoor furniture brands. Dedon, for example, is a German brand that offers a wide range of outdoor furniture elements, such as elegant lamps capable of giving a magical atmosphere, armchairs and lounge furniture, upholstered and functional, comfortable and perfect for the needs of any guest.

In conclusion, creating an outdoor kitchen can be a great addition to your outdoor living space. Before you begin, it is important to consider your budget, your culinary needs and the size of your outdoor space. Choosing the right materials, such as stainless steel and natural stone, can ensure that your outdoor kitchen will last a long time and be easy to clean.

Finally, don't forget to add some personal touches to your outdoor kitchen, such as lighting, plants and grill accessories. Choose furniture elements from the best brands and enjoy the result in your new garden dining room or terrace!
