An outdoor kitchen is a great way to enjoy cooking outdoors in all weather conditions. But before you buy, there are a few things to think about.

The size of the area where it will be installed.

If you plan to install your outdoor kitchen in a large space, make sure you choose a worktop with enough room to accommodate your needs. You should also check out how easy it is to clean the surface.

The type of material used.

There are two main materials used for outdoor kitchens – stainless steel and concrete. Stainless steel is more durable than concrete, so it will last longer. However, concrete is easier to maintain and won’t require as much maintenance.

The durability of the material.

Concrete is often considered the better option because it lasts longer than stainless steel. It also requires less maintenance than stainless steel. However, stainless steel is more expensive than concrete.

The ease with which the material can be cleaned.

Stainless steel is easy to clean, but concrete is easier to keep clean. If you plan to use your outdoor kitchen as a barbecue area, then concrete will likely be the better choice.

The cost of the material.

Concrete is more expensive than stainless steel, so if you’re looking at a budget of £1,000 or less, stainless steel might be a better option. However, if you’re planning on spending more than £2,500, then concrete would be a better choice.

An excellent experience from start to finish. David is very experienced in terms of site position, planning, seeing potential problems and finding good cost effective solutions. Dale and Dean were a pleasure to have working on site. As a family, we love our outdoor kitchen and cannot recommend it enough. The blinds and pivoting roof makes it a useable space for all seasons. I wouldn’thesitate to recommend David and his team to anyone.

I think sometimes, projects like this can be so overwhelming. Although, with David’s advice and wealth of knowledge, he was able to advise and help to design our outdoor kitchen which catered for all our needs and requests and all within our budget too. Thank you!

All about outdoor living came to see me and produced some amazing ideas, after getting the quotation and drawings I was pleasantly surprised it was in my budget. The workmen who carried out the job were clean and hard working, I can highly recommend this company for doing what they say they will do. Thank you David for overseeing the project and making the whole process comfortable for me.
