Black outdoor kitchens

Black kitchens are having a big design moment indoors — and out! From black panelling (just love the texture panelling adds to a space) to painted black timber and that stunning black concrete kitchen, here are 4 takes on how to pull off a black outdoor kitchen that stopped us in our tracks.

White alfresco areas

More into light and airy than dark and moody? Perhaps an all-white outdoor kitchen is your style then. White doesn’t have to mean bland when you play with texture and materials. Plus you can easily style the space with plants, lanterns and other decor!

Natural timber accents

It’s hard to beat the warmth natural timber brings to a space. And when you discover the cost of many outdoor cabinetry products, it becomes even more appealing to consider a timber finish instead (just be prepared for regular timber maintenance). How fab is this space with lush vertical wall planting?!

Unexpected pop of colour

Who says you can’t have a bit of fun while still creating a luxe space? The ladies at Three Birds Renovations love adding pops of colour to their projects. And in this outdoor kitchen they’ve used a fab encaustic tile in orange and peach tones to wrap the kitchen island. It adds major interest to an otherwise all-white kitchen and the best bit, you can just retile over the top should you feel like a change down the track.

Concrete accents

Oh how our love of concrete will never tire. There’s something so timeless about the organic texture and muted colour of concrete. Naturally hard wearing, it’s also an ideal material to use in your outdoor kitchen. These outdoor kitchens with concrete accents are definitely ticking all the right boxes. And that white concrete outdoor kitchen at the end is especially divine!

A mixed palette

This outdoor kitchen offers the trifecta of natural timber (and that ceiling!), black accents and concrete render — OMG looooove! Seriously, this space offers it all and we’re totally crushing on that fireplace too.
