Alfresco dining is a great way to enjoy fresh air and sunshine while eating outdoors. It’s also a popular trend in many parts of the world, especially in Australia and New Zealand. But there are several things to consider when planning an outdoor area for alfresco dining.

An outdoor kitchen and dining area that are combined may not only provide ambiance but also have the chef present for the occasion. The sizzle of the grill, the delicious scents on the breeze, and the anticipation it builds will all excite the appetites and encourage eager anticipation for the culinary delights to come.

We’ve created the finest handmade oak kitchens and furniture for over a quarter of a century, integrating the finest of traditional woodworking with mortise and tenon joinery, the finest quality quarter-sawn oak, and decades of expertise. You can be sure that your kitchen is built to the highest standards. There are two distinct cabinetry designs: horizontal and vertical. For contemporary terraces or outdoor kitchens, horizontal style generates stunning lines. For country terraces and poolsides, the vertical style combines the finest of traditional craftsmanship with tactile lines, high-performance materials, and modular, easily installed units.

There are three main types of outdoor spaces: open-plan, enclosed, and semi-enclosed. Open-plan spaces allow people to move freely throughout the area. Enclosed spaces provide privacy and protection from weather elements. Semi-enclosed spaces combine both features.

This system allows us to make adjustments to suit the base and create a fantastic frame structure for the kitchen. We can incorporate sinks, Fridges, Gas BBQs, Charcoal BBQs, wood-fired BBQs, Electric BBQs, Argentinian BBQs, and South African-inspired Braai BBQs.

Pizza ovens, Kamado, Green eggs, side burners, Smokers, the list is endless.

What Utilities Are Needed For An Outdoor Kitchen?

Alfresco cooking can be taken to the next level by creating an outdoor kitchen with additions. Having a sink unit in your outdoor kitchen is a big quality-of-life upgrade. With a sink unit, you can wash your vegetables before cooking, wash your hands after handling raw meat, and wash your pots, pans, and plates after meals, all while staying outdoors longer. You can also spend less time indoors and gain easier access to water. In addition to coal grills, gas grills are becoming more popular for outdoor cooking. They are often quicker to heat up, easier to clean, and more available. The right gas access should be taken into account at the earliest stage of planning and development in order to ensure the most efficient layout.

Professional Outdoor Kitchen Installation Service

Our expert and experienced installers will finish the installation in your outdoor area once the finishing touches have been added to your outdoor kitchen. Our team works alongside the contractors from the design stage to the installation to ensure that everything comes together for the perfect finish. All the utilities come through the base of the kitchen, so there are no unsightly pipes or wires. It is crucial to note that any gas or electric work will require a skilled technician. We can supply utilities diagrams and templates for contractors to install the utilities.
