The wonderful Perth weather lends itself to outdoor entertaining, because of this there truly is no better place to incorporate an indoor/outdoor kitchen into your home. With this in mind, it can double the size of your entertaining zone, allowing you to entertain year-round!
The Simple Solution
Sometimes it’s simply a case of adding in a gas strut window into your indoor kitchen, creating a seamless connection to the outdoors. This is a great solution if you have a smaller sized alfresco.
An indoor/outdoor kitchen is super-practical, especially when you’re entertaining. You can easily serve food and drinks to guests, and plates and glasses can be cleared away quickly. Equally, the chef of the day won’t ever be far away, which means they’ll never feel left out of the party.
This stylish design feature can make everyday mealtimes feel a bit special, for instance, in a home that has a holiday or resort-inspired feel to it.
Indoor/outdoor living is a key focus in all Plunkett home designs. With this in mind, we’ve illustrated several ideas for blurring the lines between the kitchen and the great outdoors.
Bi-fold Servery Windows
In our Cambridge display we included a set of bi-folding servery windows between the kitchen and the alfresco. One of the benefits to top-hanging the bi-folding windows is there is no track to interrupt the flow if you wanted to extend the kitchen benchtop outside. This can create an alfresco breakfast bar, for example. Our partners over at Jason Windows have great examples of this on their website – Here.
Open up the bi-folding doors in our North Hampton display and suddenly the kitchen and dining room of this Hamptons-style display becomes an integral part of the alfresco.
Looking for a cheaper way to bring the kitchen outdoors? Simply structure the position of your internal kitchen adjacent to a set of doors out to the alfresco, this can often be enough to make the indoor and the outdoor space feel beautifully connected, as illustrated in the Riviera Ex-Display. The bank of sliding doors opens up to take you from the kitchen, straight outside.
All of our floor plans can be customised. There’s always scope to add in your own ideas for indoor/outdoor living.
