Outdoor kitchens are beginning to gain popularity in Australia and around the world. We are providing a lot of custom built doors for alfresco living; many of these are for outdoor kitchens.
For any alfresco living area, whether it is a game area, an entertainment area, a dining area, a patio, a deck or an outdoor kitchen, we usually recommend either sliding doors or bifold doors.
We love these varieties of doors because they allow a lot of light in and help make the alfresco area more like part of the inside of the home. Bifold doors in particular help integrate the inside of your home with the outdoor portion.
Bifold doors have at least two and usually three panels that fold together and are easily stored at the side of the opening. This allows you to open the door the entire width of the opening. Because these doors are built with solid, exterior grade timber frames and sturdy, weatherproof glass, they let in a lot of natural light while giving your home a more natural aesthetic, thanks to the grain of the timber.
Sliding doors let in the same amount of light but only let you walk through half of the width of the opening because the two sections of the door slide on parallel tracks and rest next to each other. If you don’t like bifold doors, sliding doors are a great way to get the same amount of natural light into your home. They still provide a lot of ventilation, too, although the bifold doors provide twice as much.
Outdoor kitchens and dining areas are great because all of the heat from cooking goes outdoors. It helps keep your home cool in the summer and saves on air conditioning. We have seen some pretty elaborate outdoor kitchens, complete with ranges, stone pizza ovens and world class charcoal grills.
