Why you should cover your outdoor kitchen for ultimate protection
September 13, 2022
Outdoor kitchens are a great way to bring the joy of entertaining into your very own backyard. We have to say that the convenience of socialising outdoors while you wait for your food to be cooked creates the perfect atmosphere, especially as the weather starts to warm.
Installing an outdoor kitchen adds value to your home, which is why it is essential to keep your kitchen in pristine condition. Here’s why you need to cover your AlfrescoPlus kitchen so that you and your guests can enjoy it for years to come.
Protection from the elements
Maintain your AlfrescoPlus kitchen by installing it undercover. And we’re not just talking about a BBQ cover. It’s important to install your BBQ beneath a covered patio or roof. Before you install, there are a few important things to consider.
There are compliance regulations that need to be followed when installing an outdoor barbecue and it is mandatory to follow natural ventilation requirements.
Your space must meet the minimum requirements and must be open to natural ventilation to be considered suitable. If your outdoor space does not meet the minimum ventilation requirements, it will be considered an enclosed alfresco area you will need to satisfy additional requirements before you can install your kitchen.
Refer to page 3 of our pre-installation guide for more info.
Enjoy your AlfrescoPlus kitchen all year round
Ensuring your outdoor kitchen is installed in an undercover area means that you can enjoy the space all year round. This makes entertaining friends and family a joyous time, rain, hail or shine! If you want to really up your outdoor kitchen game, consider adding an outdoor heater for the cooler months, like this one from our mates over at Gasmate.
