Example of an indoor-outdoor space in Summer

Whether you’re planning a family BBQ, garden party or evening soiree the kitchen remains the heart of the home even when the guests are outside (we hope!).  Indoor-outdoor spaces work well at any time of the year, but here are our top tips for making the most of your kitchen during the warmer months. 

  1. Add architectural interest with Crittal doors

Crittal doors are having a real moment turning functional doors into a real design feature. When closed they really frame garden views, and when thrown open they’ll invite guests to explore outside. 

  1. Continue design features outside

Continuity between your kitchen and garden is a fantastic way to create a relaxed flow between the spaces.  Choosing the same flooring is a clever way to do this, being both practical and grounding between the two spaces. 

  1. Add a pop of colour to your island 

If you fancy a quick summer update, consider painting your island in a bold summery colour to add some warmth and create a striking focal point when guests look back to the house.  

  1. Turn your kitchen into a home bar

Using your kitchen as an indoor-outdoor bar, whether mingling over appetizers or collecting a drink before heading outside, use your island to transition from indoors to out.
