With summer fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about outdoor living spaces. There are many ways to create the perfect outdoor kitchen space, depending on the homeowners preferences and size of the garden. From different prices, sizes, quality and looks, Joanne Bull, Marketing Manager of the Königstone brand behind the debut outdoor kitchen, discusses the key points of what makes KönigOutdoor stand out from the rest and why retailers should be specifying the new brand.
All KönigOutdoor kitchens are made-to-order in the UK. This allows the buyer to select most of the design options possible with an indoor kitchen; manufactured to the very highest specification and able to withstand the elements. A design can be configurated perfect for the customer’s outdoor space as cabinets can be made to whatever size is required (up to a maximum width of 1200mm), as well as having the option for internal drawers made for any cabinet (up to a maximum width 900mm). Being made-to-order also ensures that the worktops will have the minimum number of joints (if any) and that the pattern will flow across the doors and panels if a veined décor is chosen. There are eight Neolith colour options with the ability to create cabinetry out of most other sintered stone options. Other materials have been incorporated into KönigOutdoor kitchens including brick, granite and cedar wood.
Carcasses used in KönigOutdoor kitchens are made with the best quality weatherproof material which boasts a 25-year guarantee against damp ingress. Case histories for other applications for this material include pond linings, rills and raised flower beds.
The doors and worktops are made from Neolith sintered stone, which has been used for exterior cladding for over 25 years. Along with giving a higher level of finish and allowing customers to have the marble or concrete look outdoor, there are no issues with sintered stone losing colour from constant exposure to UV light. It is highly scratch resistant, easily resists extreme temperatures without degradation and there is no danger of warping or twisting. It is also very easy to maintain; simply wipe with a damp cloth and mild detergent or anti-bacterial spray to create a clean and hygienic surface for food preparation and food service.
The appliances and accessories that we stock including grills, sinks, taps and handles are made with high grade stainless steel, making them incredibly durable and heavy-duty ensuring good looks for many years. Outdoor lounge spaces have increased in popularity over the years, becoming a staple on many homeowners lists when looking to buy or build a new home. The growing trend for outdoor kitchens works in conjunction with lounge areas, giving homeowners everything they need to cook, eat and relax without the constant need to travel between the garden and home.
KönigOutdoor offers far more than just a simple BBQ, with minimally designed systems to rival that of indoor kitchen designs. The outdoor kitchens come with a range of optional integrations to suit various needs, including built-in appliances, working sinks and weatherproof storage cupboards and drawers for use all year round. The modern systems are not only practical but very stylish, adding a touch of luxury to any exterior design.
