The days of throwing some snags on the barbie have changed dramatically with the growing popularity of outdoors kitchens. The trend towards including outdoors-rooms and elaborate al fresco spaces in home-renovations has seen the orders for outdoors kitchens increase by 20% this year, according to MyAlfresco Outdoor Kitchens, a division of Arisit. Many home-renovators are looking at the luxury-end of the scale, spending up to $20,000 for large installations with top-of-the-range finishes including state-of-the-art appliances. But for those on a more modest budget pre-designed module-packages are available from MyAlfresco. Their all-weather cabinetry, built to withstand the Australian climate, is made from Alucomp, a low-weight sheet material comprising aluminium layers that maintains colour and resists corrosion; while the Staron solid surface benchtops are from Samsung.
