If you enjoy cooking and feel like it is your moment of creativity and relaxation, a great idea is to turn a part of your garden or terrace into an outdoor eating area.

To have an outdoor kitchen, one must consider weather conditions. This dilemma can be solved by using materials which ensure durability. Having a sheltered area also helps with protecting the furniture from the weather, whilst having a tree outside for shade does wonders. In this outdoor kitchen, the indoors and the outdoors communicate without distraction where there is a sliding window from which you can get everything you need from the inside, saving you making those endless trips back and forth.
You wouldn't know there is a ceiling above this outdoor kitchen until you look closely at the ceiling fan which hangs above the dining table. A high roof protects the space from rain, dew and intense sun, but still lets the light in. If you are installing ceiling fans or light sources it is important to measure the distance between the diners and the fan to ensure that either light or air can easily reach the diners.
An external kitchen needs a good amount of ventilation, and in this one a hood is installed above the barbecue area to remove fumes and odors.

A kitchen that is partially covered usually accumulates dust, leaves, trash and pests, which is not suitable for an area where you will eat. To solve this problem, you should choose resistant materials such as stone, brick and wooden furniture. Also choose neutral colors that do not let dirt and soot stick to the surface—or another option is choose easy to clean surfaces.
