Building an outdoor kitchen is an exciting but challenging task. You have to be able to work with the space that is available to you and stay within your budget while achieving the overall look and practical elements that you desire. To give you a hand, we’ve put together a few examples of how you can equip your outdoor kitchen.
One of the most desirable outdoor kitchen looks is the rustic countryside feel. You might be living in the middle of bustling city, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create a mini retreat in your very own garden!
Start off with the basics – a simple wooden decking or courtyard area is the ideal space for creating a relaxing outdoor environment. The seating area might include some comfy chairs with bohemian style blankets and cushions, or some warm overhead lighting to create an intimate atmosphere after sundown.
Decorate your seating area with a variety of plant pots that you can arrange around the garden – lots of greenery with a hint of red or purple is the perfect way to create an attractive setting.
To complete the rustic charm look, a wood fired outdoor pizza oven is the essential final touch. Choose from the Alfresco Factory Traditional or Wildfire range depending on which size and style you’d prefer. There’s nothing more rustic than a freshly baked wood fired pizza accompanied with a glass of European red wine – perfect for those balmy summer nights spent dining outdoors in your outdoor kitchen and seating area!

Modern Outdoor Kitchen
If you’re the type of person who prefers a more refined and contemporary look, then this option is for you. Pick an elegant white sofa with plush cushions for your guests to relax on while sitting outdoors. A minimalist look is desirable, so pick a light coloured wooden coffee table for comfort and style.
Being able to entertain your guests with an outdoor kitchen and bar area is an absolute must when seeking to achieve a modern look. Set up a cool and sophisticated bar area with your favourite spirits and liqueurs next to a mini-freezer for ice and a small cabinet for storing glassware. Warm, low-hanging light are desirable for an intimate yet modern feel.
The perfect way to impress your guests is with a barbeque from the state-of-the-art Beefeater range. The highly sought after outdoor Beefeater Discovery Series is a large, all-equipped option that is deemed an outdoor kitchen in its own right – complete with kitchen sink and cabinets. You can add up to four extra cabinets with this Beefeater, which means you’ll have plenty of storage space for entertaining your guests and you can double up with that much-need bar space!
Whatever option you choose, building an outdoor kitchen area is the perfect way to embrace alfresco dining and entertain your guests all year round.
