Modular outdoor kitchens: advantages and aspects to consider

A modular outdoor kitchen is one of the best solutions to furnish an outdoor space and turn it into an area where you can spend pleasant moments, thanks to its great versatility and savings in terms of money and space.

Until recently, most kitchens, both indoor and outdoor, were traditionally manufactured. But nowadays, thanks to the use of new technologies – such as 3D modelling – and the high-quality materials available, the demand for modular kitchens, both indoor and outdoor, has increased.

If you are thinking about including a modular outdoor kitchen in your project, don’t hesitate to contact us and we will advise you throughout the process.

Our modular kitchens integrate perfectly into any space and are manufactured with high-quality materials, durability, and performance.

Why a modular outdoor kitchen? When is it a good choice?

Modular construction can be used for your kitchen, bathroom, or even your living room. This type of construction is manufactured in a factory and then delivered to the destination, where it is quickly and easily installed.

This means you don’t have to hire several professionals to build your kitchen, keeping costs down.

Therefore, a modular outdoor kitchen can be a great idea if you have a limited budget and want to have control over your investment without losing quality in its construction.

In addition, at Hydrodiseño we offer to design a modular outdoor kitchen to suit your style and size.

A modular outdoor kitchen is a good choice when the following conditions are present:

  • There are space limitations: A modular kitchen is ideal if you have an outdoor area that’s not particularly large. You can even choose to use it as a separate kitchen or connect it to an existing indoor kitchen.
  • You have a tight budget: If you have a specific style and design in mind for your outdoor kitchen, but don’t want to spend a lot of money on it, a modular outdoor kitchen may also be the best option. These types of kitchens can be tailored to your specific needs and are often less expensive than traditionally built outdoor kitchens.

Advantages of prefabricated modular kitchens over traditional kitchens

There are several advantages of prefabricated kitchens or modular kitchens over traditional ones, such as the following:

  • Faster and more efficient construction
  • Reduced waste generation
  • Savings in terms of time and money
  • Fast delivery and installation

Since a modular kitchen is prefabricated and delivered to your home, you don’t have to hire other professionals to install it. Our experts take care of everything, leaving it fully functional.

In addition, traditional outdoor kitchens often take up too much space, sometimes even occupying areas necessary for other outdoor activities. With modular kitchens, you can choose the ideal size for your kitchen.

At Hydrodiseño we offer prefabricated module solutions, thanks to the 3D modelling done by our engineers. A product that adapts perfectly to your space requirements, is 100% functional, and with the highest quality materials.

Our experts are trained to advise you every step of the way, from design and project planning to the siting/location, and installation of your kitchen.

Different types of modular outdoor kitchen designs

Another major advantage of a modular outdoor kitchen is the wide variety of styles, sizes, and materials to choose from.

Besides, they are easy to install and include diverse features, such as grills, ovens, sinks, refrigerators, countertops, etc.

Although all modular outdoor kitchens have a similar configuration, the specific design and materials used can vary greatly.

There are different types of modular outdoor kitchen designs to choose from, including traditional, modern, and rustic designs. Depending on the design you choose, you can create an outdoor space that fits any aesthetic, perfectly matching the style of your home.

A modular outdoor kitchen can also be designed to match an existing kitchen if you want consistency between the two spaces.

Materials for an outdoor modular kitchen

Different materials can be used in modular construction, but the most commonly used are concrete, steel, and wood. However, other materials such as aluminium, bamboo, etc. are usually used as well.

Concrete modular outdoor kitchen

A concrete modular outdoor kitchen is perfect for coastal areas where the climate is humid and there is a lot of rainfall. In addition, they don’t become mouldy, are easy to clean, and are extremely durable.

Tip: If you want to keep your concrete modular outdoor kitchen in impeccable condition, you should seal it regularly with high-quality sealers. You can also use a polish to add a nice, sleek finish.

Wooden modular outdoor kitchen

Although this is one of the most popular materials for outdoor kitchens because of its pleasant appearance, it’s worth mentioning that wood furniture is not always suitable for outdoor use. This material should be kept away from or protected from direct sunlight, as this can damage the wood and cause discoloration.

Tip: If you are installing the kitchen where there’s direct sunlight, you can do so under an umbrella or other type of cover to protect the wood from UV rays and other damaging elements. Also, it’s a good idea to seal the wood regularly with high-quality outdoor sealers.

Steel modular outdoor kitchen

Steel modular kitchens are a popular choice for outdoor modular kitchens because they are water resistant and therefore ideal in high rainfall areas. They are also durable and rustproof.

Tip: If you want to keep your modular steel outdoor kitchen looking clean and new, you must use stainless steel cleaners. And you can use a polish to add a nice, shiny finish.

Modular outdoor kitchen: An alternative that adapts to everything

A modular outdoor kitchen is a great addition to your home, especially if you usually host parties or spend plenty of time in the garden.

These types of kitchens are also an ideal solution for larger projects such as residences or hotels, where having an outdoor kitchen adds value considering the different activities that can be conducted.

They are easy to install, and you can choose the design that best suits the outdoor space available. They are also ideal for infrastructures that need to be renovated or refurbished.

Whether you want to create a rustic or modern outdoor space, a modular outdoor kitchen is a great solution.
