If you enjoy outdoor living, building an outdoor kitchen can be one of the best home improvements you can tackle.
Having your food preparation dining spaces outdoors where you are entertaining or hanging out with your family is much more convenient than preparing food indoors and transporting it outdoors. With a full-featured outdoor kitchen, the chef can enjoy the company of others while preparing food, and dishes can be served immediately off the grill while they are still warm and delicious. And that’s not to mention the delicious smells that outdoor cooking brings to the landscape.
We believe your outdoor space should be a natural and relaxed extension of your home and should reflect the quality and design of your indoor areas. Our timber outdoor kitchen furniture is handcrafted to exact specifications. All our furniture is made from sustainable, natural materials which are exceptionally durable and built to last.
Expand your outdoor entertaining area with our affordable self-assembly range or call us for a bespoke design to suit your requirements. Our self-assembly kitchens are modular, with each unit measuring 700mm or 1 metre in width and 700mm depth so most areas layouts can be accommodated. We also have a 700mm x 700mm x 100mm high raised worktop option to accommodate a pizza oven.
While we do not have a fixed range of outdoor appliances, we can recommend or supply appliances if you need us to include them. Items to consider are: hob burners, warming draws, sinks, fridges and pizza ovens.
Budget, the layout of your garden, and your preferred style of outdoor activity will dictate what kind of outdoor kitchen you install. Frequent entertaining and large budgets may translate to full-scale outdoor kitchens, with an outdoor sink, countertops, stove and oven, refrigerator, a shelter for the area, and a built-in barbecue grill. If you throw just the occasional party or barbecue, it is more economical to retain some key items—cabinets, counter, and a cooking area—while putting the pricey, elaborate items on pause, at least for now.
Where do you intend to build the outdoor kitchen? Logistically, it makes sense to locate the kitchen relatively close to the house, especially if you are running electrical, water, and gas lines. The area should be dry, level, and stable.
Unlike indoor kitchens, which follow strict layout guidelines, outdoor kitchens afford you more freedom for planning. But there are some common-sense rules. Situate critical services such as the sink, stove, oven, and barbecue grill on the side closest to the house. In most cases, you will be running gas, water, and electrical lines off of the side or rear of the house. And be aware that outdoor kitchens are still subject to building codes and other regulations.
