Outdoor Garden Kitchen Designs

An outdoor kitchen is an extension of your home. It's a way of extending your inside living, outside onto your patio or into your garden area and giving you a whole new living space to use. A space outside of the home where you can entertain, cook and prepare meals while enjoying the open-air.

Cooking outside and simply being outdoors in general is so good for the soul. It's good for your mind, your body, your mental wellbeing and it's such a great way to cook. Predominantly, all you need for an outdoor kitchen is an area to cook on and work surfaces. It's a brilliant way of bringing your family and your
friends together, becoming a social space for people to socialise.

There is a huge range of appliances that you could choose from to have in your kitchens. The options are endless, a built in barbeque, a fridge, a pizza oven. The types of food you can cook outside now goes on and on. Recipes way past what there used to be. The traditional old barbecue trolley that Dad used to cook and cremate all the sausages and burgers - those days are gone. They are a thing of the past.
In terms of the layout, you can have a simple run, L shapes, U shapes. Islands and bars are becoming particularly popular amongst customers at the moment. You can have your main cooking area and then an island which will have an overhang perhaps with stools underneath, so your friends can sit making it a very social space. Some islands can even include wheels on allowing you to wheel it around.

Ultimately, the limit is endless. The choice is yours. We can help that design become a reality.
