Christmas is Close

Spring is here and household renovations of all types are lining up to be completed by Christmas. Renovations ordered after the end of September cannot be guaranteed a pre-Christmas completion. In this newsletter we will look at one the largest growing areas of our business, The Outdoor Kitchen. 

Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor Kitchens are no longer a stand alone BBQ with a table and a few chairs. The Outdoor Kitchen of today includes bench space, sinks, hot and cold water, refrigerators and appliances such as dishwashers and microwaves. Outdoor kitchens require special features including water resistance, ultraviolet radiation resistance and hard wearing product to ensure the Outdoor Kitchen remains functional with an "as new" appearance. 
Outdoor Kitchens are no longer an isolated space. Your indoor space and outdoor space need a seamless transition. This can be achieved through large openings from your home to your outdoor kitchen through bi-fold doors and/or design matching from inside to outside.


Even if your Outdoor Kitchen is undercover, it will still be exposed to the elements. For this reason, the products and materials selected to build the kitchen will greatly impact on the longevity of the kitchen. For cupboard doors and drawers, stainless steel is a popular choice. However, there are other options available, including framed glass and/or StyleLite® MPB panels. StyleLite Multi-Purpose Boards are a high quality water resistant product, suitable for covered patios and alfresco areas, wet areas, flood prone locations, and marine cabinetry. The range of colours can be seen on their web site.


Traditionally, Outdoor Kitchens have been built with stainless steel frames, doors and benchtops. As Outdoor Kitchens are becoming increasingly popular, customers are demanding alternatives to stainless steel. Granite, Corian® and Dekton® benchtops have the qualities needed to withstand the environmental elements whilst remaining their beauty and durability.


At this time it is important to note that many of the manufactured stone benchtops (Caesarstone® / Essastone® / SileStone® / SmartStone® and Quantum Quartz®) are not covered by the manufacturers warranty if they are included in an Outdoor Kitchen.
Outdoor Kitchen Accessories must be designed to withstand weather conditions, be protected from dirt and dust while maintaining convenience and appearance. The Husky ALFC1840 (118L) outdoor refrigerator (pictured) is a great example of an accessory that looks appealing and is built for the outdoors. There are a multitude of smart Outdoor Kitchen accessories that should be considered when you design your Outdoor Kitchen. Feel free to contact us for design ideas and an obligation free quote.

As a special feature, Pizza Ovens are regularly making appearances in Outdoor Kitchens across South East Queensland. There are a wide range of options available including wood fired, electric or gas. The size of the oven and the construction material of the oven can vary according to your design requirements. 
Built In BBQ
An integrated BBQ is the essential ingredient in a professionally designed Outdoor Kitchen.  Buying a quality BBQ is money well spent.  The pictured Beefeater BBQ is designed to compliment your Outdoor Kitchen and will be the jewel in the crown of any outdoor living space.
