About the project

We do not only supply products for indoors. Of course, we do not forget the outdoor area. After all, that is just as important. Outdoor kitchens are becoming increasingly popular. Together with Houtdoor, we make the pleasure of cooking and living outdoors a reality. Today, being outside means so much more than just a barbecue. Outdoor kitchens are complete copies of their indoor counterparts. They allow you to enjoy every season in the open air.

The most commonly chosen material for outdoor kitchens is wood. Houtdoor is one of the few companies that uses wood from the western red cedar. This type of wood is of extremely high quality and stands for durability. It is often used in Scandinavian saunas because of its great properties. Oak wood is not to be forgotten. In Europe, this type of wood always carries a certificate, which stands for quality.

Building an outdoor kitchen may look simple, but it is certainly not. The wood behaves differently in every season. It expands during the cold winter months and shrinks under the warm sun in summer. Houtdoor’s special constructions ensure that this does not happen.

The kitchen in the pictures is made of the wood of the western red cedar. The whole is decorated with a worktop of quartzite Portoro from Brazil. A hard and strong stone that is ideally suited for outdoor use. The kitchen was made for Kees Smit Tuinmeubelen XXL in Almelo, the Netherlands.
