Outdoor Kitchen Design, Sutton Coldfield
Outdoor kitchens are not just for summer, but with clever planning and the right equipment you can enjoy outdoor eating and entertaining at any time of year, no matter how big or small your garden space. And one of the great aspects of outdoor kitchens is that because they are not fixed, permanent structures, you don’t need planning permission to install them! When it comes to designing outdoor kitchens, at Urban Garden Space our aim is to deliver kitchens that will give you a great cooking experience in the cooking style you like best, along with the ambience you want for year-round use and enjoyment.
Design-Led Outdoor Kitchen Spaces
All we need in the first instance is a measurement of your intended space, and ideally some photos; from here we can begin to navigate your options to achieve the best possible design for you. With 20+ years’ experience in kitchen design we know what works, and we know what doesn’t. We also know how the right questions to ask to help you make the best decision for you and your space. For example, we would ask how your garden’s arranged and how you want to move around it? Do you have children, and do you want to involve them in the cooking experience? Or, in helping you choose the right type of grill we would ask what types of food you would like to cook and whether you require fast-cooked food. Through getting to know you we can design your perfect outdoor kitchen space as a true extension of your home.
Top Tips for Planning Your Perfect Outdoor Garden Space
At Urban Garden Space we will create a perfectly tailored outdoor kitchen space for you, but to help get started we have put together some of our top design tips to consider:
Remember the cooking
Don’t just try to replicate what you can do indoors. Part of the joy of eating outside is that you can create different tastes with outdoor cooking. Bear this in mind when considering the appliances, you want e.g., searing meat over incredibly high heat, smoking ribs, or cooking pizzas in a blazing-hot oven.
Durability and maintenance
Think about the surface the kitchen will stand on, as well as the kitchen itself. Ceramic and porcelain tiles or concrete are all practical and easy options for keeping clean!
Look for furniture that is made from materials designed specifically for the living environment, such as stainless steel or vitreous enamel. You need to consider that they will be subject to high cooking temperatures, as much as the natural elements.
Outdoor Kitchen Storage
Don’t overlook storage. You will want to incorporate sufficient outdoor storage space to make your life as easy as possible. You can select furniture that includes cupboard space and drawers for storing outdoor dinner service and utensils. It is also useful to have accessible storage for outdoor cushions, table linen and other outdoor accessories.
