  • Where is the best position for your Outdoor Kitchen? Carefully consider your available space, intended usage and other factors such as scenic views.
  • Will you use the Outdoor Kitchen predominately for small or large gatherings?
  • What modules and operational features should you include? Think about available space, desired functionality and budget.
  • What decor theme will fit best into your outdoor surroundings?
  • Will you have permanent water and electrical connections? Direct connections are not only convenient but provide a limitless supply of water and power.
  • Do you prefer Natural Gas or LP gas? Natural Gas, if available can be connected directly to your system and is both economical and convenient.
  • Do you want a stand alone kitchen? Includes cooking / BBQ appliance, sink and refrigeration – no running back and forth to the inside Kitchen which means more convenience and time spent with guests.

Installation Considerations

If you’re planning to have a party and would like an Outdoor Kitchen to help you succeed, please be aware of the installation considerations below:

  • Ensure adequate access on the installation date, as your Alfresco Kitchen is partially assembled off site for convenience.
  • For safety’s sake your Alfresco Kitchen must be installed by qualified technicians. Installation by unqualified individuals may void product warranty.
  • Plan well ahead of the BIG EVENT! Allow 6 to 8 weeks for manufacture and installation.
