Amazing outdoor kitchens I so want to be in right now

Outdoor kitchen

What’s been your summer highlight? Mine has definitely been the weather. Now that’s not something you often hear of a British summer, is it? While it is safe to say that this summer has been filled with uncertainty, the sunshine and bout of heatwaves have undoubtedly brought a slice of sunny joy to otherwise testing times. If you have a spacious garden where you can unwind, enjoy a delicious barbecue and catch a tan, then you are one of the lucky ones. But, a smaller space like my balcony has provided plenty of R&R, too. It’s all about how you design it – seating, lighting, decoration and a grill.

As we approach the final stretch of summer, I would teleport myself to one of these amazing outdoor kitchens to make the most of what’s left of balmy weather. Add a patio heater and a few thick throws and I’ll stay out for autumn too… what do you think? We can all dream right? Or at least get planning for next summer.
