Embrace the Elements: Top Trends in Outdoor Kitchen Cabinetry Hardware
5 July 2023
The Australian lifestyle embraces outdoor activities, from barbeques and parties to dining under the stars. It’s no surprise that outdoor kitchens have become a popular trend in residential design, serving as a natural extension of the home. A thoughtfully designed outdoor living area not only expands the usable space but also enhances the property’s aesthetic appeal and value.
Outdoor kitchens have evolved significantly, moving beyond simple barbeques and dining tables. Modern outdoor kitchen spaces now aim to elevate the art of entertaining with top-notch quality, style, functionality, and versatility. These outdoor kitchens rival indoor ones, allowing homeowners to prepare and cook various cuisines while hosting friends and family amidst nature’s beauty.
The possibilities for outdoor kitchen features are limitless, ranging from sinks and fridges to innovative storage solutions. When planning an alfresco kitchen or dining area, careful consideration of factors like location, utilities, storage, lighting, appliances, and aesthetics is crucial. These elements influence the budget and time required to create a space that caters to the needs of all intended users.
For outdoor kitchens to withstand the harsh Australian climate, durable and sophisticated fittings are essential. Hettich’s Alfresco Kitchen Collection offers the perfect solution with its InnoTech Atira drawer system. Featuring Anthracite color and a range of side element heights, this system provides individual creativity and functionality. The full extension Quadro runners with soft-closing functionality ensure smooth and reliable operation.
Quadro runner systems, based on the ball bearing idea, prove their worth in outdoor kitchens where they face challenging conditions. The self-cleaning mechanism of Quadro runners ensures dirt particles are efficiently cleared as they traverse along the track, ensuring long-lasting performance.
Another exceptional addition to the collection is the Veosys fast assembly concealed hinge. Made of robust stainless steel, this rugged hinge guarantees excellent soft-closing performance, even in extreme outdoor temperatures. It exhibits remarkable corrosion resistance and remains unaffected by temperature fluctuations, moisture, or salt exposure.
The Alfresco Kitchen Collection offers a variety of solutions to cater to different needs. The Bin.It Duo II pull-out waste bin system with full extension runners ensures waste management convenience. The New Modern Collection from ProDecor Handles presents sleek furniture handles to elevate the kitchen’s overall look.
