Many of our customers choose to create their own alfresco kitchen. This may be due to budget constraints or because they’re handy and want to create something themselves. We offer a variety of products for DIYers as well as top advice.
Alfresco Kitchen Design Service
We are able to come to your home and give design advice before you begin your project. This includes creating a 3D diagram of your proposed kitchen and giving advice regarding the location of your essential services, such as gas, water and electrical this may incur a fee. We can also determine if your alfresco is classified as “enclosed” and help you to ensure your area complies with the relevant laws.
This service can save you both time and money as we are able to provide expert information to help you avoid making mistakes and tips on how to complete the job efficiently and effectively.
Getting Started on your DIY project:
Step 1: Determine if your alfresco area is classed as “enclosed” – CLICK BELOW ON PICTURE for more information
Step 2: Decide which type of cabinets you would like. Make sure that if you choose a combustible material you have heatshields between your BBQ and cabinets. Many DIY projects use brick cabinets, but we also offer fibre cement, polymer, and stainless steel DIY units. The Infresco range of insertable doors and drawers are also available for purchase. See below for more information.
Step 3: Determine where the water pipes, gas pipes and electrical points will be. Get qualified professionals to install these for you. Consider if you need gas points for BBQ, pizza oven, heaters (bayonet points are not sufficient- most of these appliances need to be connected straight to the gas pipe, and require larger pipes than the normal gas pipes). When considering electrical points, will you need a fridge, oven, kettle, power to your pizza oven or rotisserie, power to heaters? Will you need a sink? Outdoor shower? Dishwasher? See our Getting Started Guide for more information.
Step 4: Select your BBQ (if your alfresco area is classed as “enclosed” then your BBQ must be natural gas, must have flame failure devices fitted to all burners, and must be approved for indoor use. Infresco’s Gourmet BBQs are built to comply with these laws)
Step 5: Select your exhaust hood size. Will it be suspended from the roof or the wall? An exhaust hood is required above your BBQ if your alfresco area is classed as enclosed, and the hood must extract a minimum of 2000M3 of air per hour). Infresco exhaust hoods are built to comply with these laws, and are available as ceiling-mounted or back-wall mounted.
We also supply Installation Kits (additional cost), which includes the hardware that you will need to perform the installation. Once installed you will need to pretty it up with a flue cover to cover the pipes. Included in the exhaust hood price is a standard 300mm stainless steel flue cover, or you can call us with your measurements after installation and we will cut the flue cover to fit.
Step 6: Determine if you want a pizza oven. If the area is enclosed and the pizza oven is gas-powered, it will also need to be under an exhaust hood or flued. If you choose a wood-fired oven, make sure your floor base can support the weight of the pizza oven as they can weight close to half a tonne. Infresco sell both gas and wood fired pizza ovens.
Step 7: Decide on the type of benchtop you would like: If you provide Infresco with a template, we can make the benchtop for you (Note: We will follow the template. We take no responsibility if the measurements supplied to us are incorrect). See the Benchtops page for more information on benchtop types.
