Building Outdoor Kitchens In Queensland

Living in Queensland offers many benefits, including our weather – and building outdoor kitchens is easier than you might think when you use a professional like Kibo Constructions a Brisbane based kitchen company.

If you had the chance to choose where you would  spend your evenings in the summertime, would it be cooped up inside – or perhaps having a BBQ in the great outdoors with your nearest and dearest? If it’s the latter, it might be time to invest in an open air living space, with outdoor kitchens being one of the most popular go-to’s for seamless indoor outdoor living.

Tips On Building Outdoor Kitchens 

As outdoor kitchens continue to grow in popularity, experts believe that adding one to your home can also significantly increase its value – plus, who really doesn’t fancy alfresco style dining, especially in the summer months? With some careful planning, adding an outdoor kitchen to your property is actually quite straightforward providing you follow the basics. 

Location, Location, Location – Before you begin planning, consider where you are going to put your outdoor cooking space. Will it be in close proximity to your existing kitchen, how big is it going to be, and will it have full or partial sun exposure? The devil is in the detail, especially in relation to what facilities you’ll need to include and the relevant running costs (additional power connections, gas etc). 

Consider Your Needs – When it comes to outdoor kitchens, are you going to be channeling Masterchef vibes, or are you happy with a BBQ and a beer fridge? You’ll need to carefully consider the purpose of your outdoor kitchen, and what facilities, appliances and equipment you’ll need – it won’t be an easy tweak if you change your mind halfway through construction. Consider all the seasons too, and think about how you can best utilise the space. 

Look, Feel And Functionality – Let’s not forget that this is still an outdoor space. You’ll need to consider what lighting you prefer, heating measures if your climate requires it, which materials for the bench tops and surfaces, shelter and shade, plus how you’re going to avoid attracting bugs. Storage is also an often forgotten feature, so ensure you factor in cupboard space for your utensils and appliances if they are going to live outside full time. 

Safety First – You have certain measures in place in your home to prevent little hands getting into the wrong things, so ensure that you take the same precautions for your outside space. Consider access to the space, non-slip floors (marble and tiles are more prone to this), keeping sharp objects and chemicals out of arm’s reach, and fire safety equipment like an extinguisher on hand.
