ROOM IN FOCUS: Outdoor Kitchen

Room in Focus:  Outdoor Kitchen

Contemporary Inspirations


Australians are experts in outdoor entertaining, we love a good barbeque!  And with the warmer weather finally upon us, it’s time to head outside!

The outdoor kitchen is a space that is demanding attention right across the country. From the simple built-in barbeque and bench top to the full contemporary alfresco kitchen/dining room – anything is possible.


Kate Walker from Kate Walker Design has worked closely with many home owners and developers to design and source materials specifically for outdoor kitchens. Material selection is one of the most important considerations at the planning stage. Outdoors, even under an alfresco roof is a very different environment to inside your house. The materials need to withstand long term exposure outside. They will generally cost more, but when cheaper alternatives are used, you can quickly become disappointed.

Tiles and paving, bench tops, feature walls, joinery, landscape design and plant supply are all part of Kate’s design process. Kate can also advise on appliances, lighting and furniture.
