A zitkuil is a reduced seating area
A zitkuil can be found in the living room, but is also available in the garden. In the years 70, the living room Zitkuil was a popular phenomenon, nowadays it is not so often more to be found indoors. The outside Zitkuil is still there, often it is that you sit on the edge of the pit, and your legs hang in the Zitkuil. The idea behind the Zitkuil is to make the whole a bit more sociable and more cozy. To make this effect even bigger there is also often a fireplace in the pit present. Current Zitkuilen in the garden are mainly meant to suffer less from the wind, not so much to make the more cozy.
