The daily activities carried out inside the home can find continuity outside with an outdoor kitchen. Outdoors, the kitchen area is transformed into an en plein air space where conviviality and exclusive experience come together, guaranteeing a welcoming and liveable atmosphere typical of indoor environments, but outdoors.
Why choose to design a luxury outdoor kitchen?
Because experiencing the outdoors with an outdoor kitchen is the new outdoor lifestyle trend.
Outdoor kitchens become the spatial and emotional extension of open spaces and living areas inside the home, but without giving up the same comforts and functional aspects of an internal cooking space.
To design a luxury outdoor kitchen correctly it is necessary to follow specific steps and take care of every aspect in detail, with the aim of creating a highly functional area of great aesthetic value.
In this regard, here are 4 useful design tips for an outdoor kitchen.
4 tips for designing a luxury outdoor kitchen
Developing a well-designed outdoor kitchen design project means satisfying the client's technical and stylistic needs and guaranteeing a unique and enjoyable experience in the kitchen.
But what are the fundamental steps to carry out to achieve a successful project?
To answer this question, we advise you to follow our design tips for luxury outdoor kitchens:
1. Tackle the kitchen layout
Inside living areas and private homes, kitchens are placed between walls that define them.
In outdoor kitchens, on the contrary, there are no defined limits.
Therefore, plan the layout and dimensions of the kitchen according to the technical and spatial requirements of the external environment, respecting the rule of the "work triangle". It is a system of functional preparation of the main work areas in the kitchen, namely a hob, fridge and sink.
The correct arrangement of these "task" areas will have a positive effect on the food preparation process and consequently on the entire experience of your client's luxury outdoor kitchen.
2. Choose a glamorous but timeless style
The kitchen is the soul of the home. It is a place of conviviality where family and friends come together to spend time together. For this reason, it is necessary to make this external home environment livable to 360 degrees.
How? Designing an outdoor kitchen with a glamorous but timeless stylistic concept, with the aim of satisfying the client's taste and making the outdoor area customised in detail, one-of-a-kind.
3. Select quality materials
In a luxury outdoor kitchen, in addition to the aesthetic character, the technical and structural aspects also play a fundamental role in terms of efficiency and excellent performance.
Durability and efficiency are measured above all according to the materials used for the kitchen. That's why you should choose only high-quality, high-performance materials for your outdoor kitchen, as they will ensure not only a refined and elegant design composition but above all high practicality, thus facilitating its use and cleaning.
4. Take care of the details: customise the outdoor kitchen
Just like the internal kitchen, the outdoor kitchen also needs customised modifications and choices aimed at creating a sophisticated and favourable atmosphere for the daily performance of your clients' routine.
Evaluate the best solutions for the clients and set a personal goal to satisfy their requests. A successful outdoor kitchen design project is recognised by the attention and technical-stylistic care placed in each design phase, aimed at creating a customised and high-performance area.

Curved Kitchen "Multi-Element"
Curved Kitchen “Multi-Element” adapts to every kind of use. This is the most complex version that allows you, through different separate modules, to organise a complete kitchen space. Each element can be fitted with a BBQ, sink and gas hob to your liking. Each work area is organised at the client's discretion to ensure total comfort and a smooth progression of the preparation phases.
An outdoor kitchen model that follows a curvilinear design covered with high-performance materials.
In fact, the entire structure is made of iron and painted for outdoor use. It has an aluminum base covered in synthetic resin, with metal feet characterised by special finishes. The module doors are covered in ultra-thin porcelain stoneware with a characteristic metallic finish.
Curved Outdoor Kitchen "Corner Composition"
This model, belonging to the Curved Kitchen line, escapes from the traditional spatial schemes, in fact, it has a very particular angle. Thanks to its characteristic shapes, the worktop becomes wider and more functional; a real operating console organised to have everything on hand.
An innovative design different from the usual patterns that does not sacrifice functionality and comfort. From a single central position, it is possible to manage the cooking, preparation and washing functions.
We are talking about a luxury outdoor kitchen developed in an angular sense, in which technique and aesthetics meet, giving the client comfort and style necessary to make their own outdoor cooking area a livable and functional space.
Here too we find an aluminum base, covered in hand-woven synthetic rattan, which rests on bronze-finish metal feet. The doors, as per the peculiarity of the curved line, are covered in low thickness porcelain stoneware with a metallic finish, which ensures strength and resistance to the entire structure. This model is equipped with a modern BBQ, sink and hob.
Linear Kitchen with Automatic Cover
With the Linear Kitchen with Automatic Cover, technology offers the possibility of covering the work surface and the appliances with a cover that opens upwards and can be activated using a special remote control.
The model proposed here is equipped with an induction hob, a sink with a retractable mixer to allow the closure of the cover, a gas BBQ, wine cellar and porcelain stoneware top, suitable for contact with food and resistant to oxidation and high or harsh temperatures.
In addition to deciding the disposition of all the appliances, it is possible to choose a metal band for the base that creates a plinth (polaris base) or a bridge structure covered in woven synthetic resin.
Island Kitchen with Sliding Table
The Island Kitchen with Sliding Table allows you to experience the outdoor environment around an elegant sliding porcelain stoneware table with a marble finish, which when open serves as a comfortable surface, while when closed covers and protects the worktop and kitchen appliances.
Specifically, this model is made with powder-coated iron modules and, just like the Linear Kitchen with Automatic cover, has a top made of porcelain stoneware, the same finish as the table, highly resistant to wear and weather. It is also possible in this case to customise the entire configuration of the kitchen, selecting between two bases of different styles.
Linear Selection with Manual Cover
Linear Section with Manual Cover is another model belonging to the Linear Kitchen collection, which has a structure with almost identical technical characteristics to the Linear Kitchen with Automatic Cover, but in this case it has manual cover. The cover is also ideal to protect the entire work surface when the kitchen is not in use and at the same time finishes it when closed.
Sectional U Shaped Kitchen
It is equipped with two induction hobs, teppanyaki, gas BBQ and wine cellar. The modules are characterised by extra durable powder coating, a finish that gives resistance to the entire structure and counteracts the oxidation process.
Linear Kitchen with Sliding Cover Bar Version
The Linear Kitchen with Sliding Cover shares the same stylistic and functional aspects of the other models in the Linear Kitchen collection, with a distinctive trait: a sliding cover towards the back of the kitchen that becomes a bar counter. This is an additional element that emphasises the multifunctional nature of the proposal. This composition is complete with a sink with a retractable mixer to allow the sliding cover to pass through, and an ice-bath.
Linear Kitchen Barbecue Version
It is the smallest of the proposals suitable for small environments where you want to have a design object that contains and hides a latest generation BBQ. To complete the Linear Kitchen Barbecue Version, you can choose between an aluminum base covered in hand-woven synthetic rattan or a straight metal band. The iron structure is entirely powder coated and therefore boasts an extra durable finish
This model has a sliding cover that opens to the sides to hide the appliances. At the same time these two elements in porcelain stoneware become a comfortable work surface.
