FAQ’s About Outdoor Kitchens
Updated: Jan 4
With so many questions about our range of outdoor kitchens, our team has compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you decide if an outdoor grill is right for you.
Can you have an outdoor kitchen in the UK?
Yes! There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to outdoor kitchens – not only are barbecues available everywhere you look, so are pizza ovens, cabinets, worktops, and sinks.
How far should a built in grill be from the house?
Before you purchase an outdoor kitchen, it’s important to ensure you have the space for it. While each grill manufacturer has their own guidelines, the general consensus is that your grill should be at least 3 feet away from any house walls. Additionally, your grill should also be placed at least 10 feet away from any objects that are easily flammable or could catch fire from an ignition.
Where is the best place to put an outdoor BBQ kitchen?
Always place grills on a flat, clean surface away from any potentially flammable debris such as rubbish bins or mulch. The same goes for low-lying trees and hedges. Make sure there are no low-hanging branches in the vicinity of your BBQ.
Can outdoor kitchens be uncovered?
An outdoor kitchen should be covered and protected against the elements, particularly if it's an open-air kitchen. Although the materials used to build outdoor kitchens are somewhat weatherproof, they will degrade over time if left to face adverse weather conditions, cold, or moisture.
To ensure the longevity of your outdoor kitchen, we recommend covering it with a canopy or roof. This will enable you to cook in all kinds of weather and ensure you’re always king of the grill. You can also build walls to protect against high winds or install umbrellas to shade the sun. Installing these coverings will largely depend on your climate.
Are outdoor kitchens worth the money?
Absolutely. Outdoor Kitchens continue to grow in popularity, and experts in the space believe that an outdoor kitchen significantly increases the value of a home. A study from Absolute Outdoor Kitchens found homes with an outdoor kitchen see an ROI of between 100% and 200% than homes without.
