The outdoor kitchen and alfresco entertaining space is becoming increasingly popular in Australia due to our beautiful climate and our casual style of entertaining friends and family.

And there is no question that outdoor kitchens add value to your property, in fact they are fast becoming a must have on many property purchasers shopping lists!

A well designed outdoor kitchen makes it easier for you to enjoy hosting stress free parties and functions, from an intimate dinner to a major celebration, whilst enjoying the convenience of being at home.

Outdoor kitchens can have everything you would find in an indoor kitchen. You have the option of including a fridge, dishwasher, ice machine, pizza oven, sink and of course a BBQ!

It’s really important to consider how you like to entertain, how many people you might need to accommodate, what kind of food you like to cook etc. as these factors can impact on whether you include a pizza oven, rotisserie, wok burner, teppanyaki plate, wine fridge and so on.

To ensure that you get the perfect outdoor kitchen you must have a plan. This plan has to include all the features and appliances you would like, as well as consider power, lighting, seating, weather protection, colour and finishes etc.

The next consideration is the type of look or theme you would like for your outdoor kitchen. Some popular outdoor kitchen themes include cool white Mediterranean tavernas, Balinese tropical retreats or rustic Australian bush kitchens.

Alternatively your outdoor kitchen can be an extension of your indoor kitchen as many kitchen materials can be adopted for external use and everyday new weather resistant materials are becoming available that are not only durable but look fantastic too.
