Part 2 - The best performing bench top for your Outdoor Kitchen!

Posted by Natalee Chiodo on 10/31/18 5:11 PM

 

Continuing our series on the best Outdoor Kitchen Benchtops, we’d like to introduce the Dekton range. With its sophistication, modern look and high performance features, it’s definitely one to consider when designing your Outdoor Kitchen.

So firstly, what exactly is Dekton we hear you ask? Well in non-technical terms it is a new and very advanced surface that is created by replicating a process that occurs naturally in nature. In nature, this process takes thousands of years and is the gradual compacting of natural stone under high temperatures and pressure. Dekton have perfected this process, calling it ‘Sintering’ and it takes merely hours to do, resulting in a very high performing, strong & resistant surface that looks amazing. But don’t take our word for it…keep scrolling...

Married At First Sight...Outdoor Kitchen Style!

Posted by Natalee Chiodo on 3/16/18 8:35 PM

The hottest show on television right now, Married At First Sight, has taken over the conversation here in the office! To celebrate the end of the Season we’ve matched the last 5 couples up with an outdoor kitchen that we feel best suits their unique personalities.

Whether you’re a Sarah & Telv fan, a Tracey & Dean disapprover or a Troy & Ash admirer, you’ve no doubt grown to love the show like we have. Here’s our take on the outdoor kitchen that would suit the final 5 couples.

 

Charlene & Patrick

It’s fairly obvious that Charlene & Patrick are heavily in the friends zone. While Patrick is keen for more, Charlene just isn’t going there with the lovable gentle giant. We love Pat though for his strong morals, emotional intelligence and ‘good guy’ vibe that he portrays. We think the perfect outdoor kitchen for these 2 is one of our latest installs pictured here. With plenty of room to spread out this is the perfect choice for family focused Pat & Charlene. Everyone can get together and have a great time without being right in each other’s space. The handy bi-fold windows to inside also means that Charlene won’t miss any of her mother-in-laws scathing comments no matter where she is! It’s win-win for everyone.
