Design a kitchen with alfresco appeal

How do you create an alfresco kitchen?

A kitchen with alfresco appeal will connect seamlessly with your outdoor living space. It’s the perfect kitchen for anyone who loves dining, socialising, and entertaining outside.

Plan the layout of your kitchen

If you intend to do a lot of dining outside, it helps to have all the appliances you need close to the external door. This means ovens, grills, hobs, and refrigerators should be easy to access, so it becomes a simple matter to move food from kitchen to garden.

It’s always handy to have a sink and dishwasher close to the door, so you can quickly dump all the used plates and glasses in one place.

A simple way to achieve a better connection between indoors and outside is to fit new doors. These could be sliding patio doors or bifold doors. Larger doors will not only let more natural light into your kitchen, you can push them back to create a connected indoor/outdoor space when you entertain.

Cook inside and outdoors

If you have enough outdoor space, enjoy the best of both worlds and cook indoors and out.

While your kitchen offers all the usual cooking appliances, such as oven, hob, and grill, you can combine these with outdoor appliances. To really entertain alfresco-style, get creative with an outdoor barbeque, built-in gas grill or pizza oven. You could also install an outdoor storage cabinet to hold appropriate cooking utensils.

A strategically placed kitchen island is useful if you need a hub. It acts as the central place to serve food that’s been prepared inside and outdoors.

Create an indoor/outdoor dining area

Along with the option to cook indoors or out – you can do the same with your dining space.

Try replicating your kitchen dining area outside to provide multiple eating places. This can be done with weather-resistant furniture.

The beauty of this is that it creates a theme that links your kitchen and garden. Accessories such as outdoor rugs, cushions, and tableware that match your kitchen design can make your outdoor space feel like an extension of your home.

Another advantage of having matching dining areas is that it becomes a simple matter to move everything from one location to another. When the sun shines, take everything outside – but when the rain comes, you can easily move everything into the kitchen.

A pergola or awning could be installed to cover the area outside your kitchen. This will protect your outside appliances and let you carry on cooking and eating outside.

Extend your kitchen entertainment

Most of us have some form of entertainment in our kitchens, and it’s a simple matter to extend that to your outdoor space.

If you have a music system in your kitchen, portable Bluetooth speakers will enable you to extend its range to your garden. The same goes for an entertainment screen. If it can be positioned so that it can be seen from outdoors, speakers will allow you to bring the sound to wherever you are.

With a few simple adjustments, you can expand your kitchen entertainment to encompass your entire garden.
