Move Your Cylinder Outdoors

If you have the space (a kitchen garden or sit out near the kitchen) it may be possible for you to move the gas cylinder outdoors placed in a purpose made wood chest with a removable front and opening lid, and then put in concealed piping to connect it to your stove. It is always a good idea to consult your interior contractor and designer as well as another expert form the gas agency on the safety and feasibility of gas piping through your home.

Crafty And Talented?

If you are talented with a brush and love to decorate everything, you can use your brush to create fresh art for every cylinder that enters your home! We recommend you paint on paper or canvas and paste it on the cylinder and do not paint directly on the cylinder as it will be returned in due course to be refilled.

You can even place the cylinder in a concealed slide out or tilt out in your kitchen island so that the space around the stove can be used for everyday use pots and pans storage within easy reach.
