Outdoor Kitchens


It’s no secret that at Et Lorem we believe the kitchen really is the identity of the home. But your home is much more than the sum of its interiors. Nowadays, your outdoor space is just as important. This means that outdoor kitchens merit just as much thought, time and planning as their indoor counterparts.

In partnership with FÒGHER, we specialise in creating bespoke outdoor kitchens that are tailor-made to suit your lifestyle, vision and personal taste. We understand that our clientele is seeking a sophisticated outdoor living experience that far surpasses the typical British barbecue. In fact, FÒGHER luxury outdoor kitchens combine superior Italian design with professional standard performance. They are also an ideal way to maximise your outdoor space and enhance your entertaining options.

Outdoor kitchens have become one of the UK’s most popular home improvement projects, as more and more people embrace al fresco dining and entertaining.

Function and form

An indoor kitchen is designed to fit into a precise interior space. However, outdoor kitchens incorporate scope for a more open, versatile layout. Importantly, with FÒGHER, there is no compromise between function and form. In fact, their made-to-measure modular system features a comprehensive range of appliances and high-quality materials, for an unrivalled al fresco experience.

Outdoor kitchens have very specific requirements. They need to be more durable than indoor kitchens, and feature specialist weather-resistant materials that can withstand rain, wind, salinity, and both high and low temperatures. So, granite/quartz countertops and wooden cabinetry – all popular options for indoor kitchens – are less suitable for exterior settings.

It’s vital to choose durable hard-wearing materials for your outdoor kitchen

Durable, hard-wearing materials that can withstand impact, extreme temperatures and corrosion, such as stainless steel and stone, are the best options for outdoor kitchens. After all, your choices should be easy to clean and maintain. Thankfully, FÒGHER luxury kitchens feature materials that offer longevity in all weather conditions. For example, surfaces are made from stainless steel or porcelain stoneware, and FÒGHER only uses powder-coated paint that has been specially developed for exterior applications. FÒGHER outdoor kitchens also include made-to-measure covers, to provide additional protection from the elements.

Planning & preparation for outdoor kitchens

Outdoor kitchens require careful planning. The process starts with assessing the outdoor space available. Our project management team will consider the existing layout, and how a specific kitchen space will fit within your overall outdoor living area or patio. Our expert design team can also help clients who are having the garden landscaped as part of their outdoor kitchen project. We also know how to maximise compact outdoor spaces – you don’t need a huge garden to enjoy an outdoor kitchen.

However big or small, it’s important to include enough space for preparation, cooking and dining. Don’t overlook storage either. In fact, it’s vital to plan where your outdoor kitchen cooking utensils, ingredients and cleaning supplies will go. We can help you create a range of storage solutions, combining both cabinets and shelving options.

Appliance selection

You use your indoor kitchen for year-round cooking, and usually require the capacity to offer a wide variety of cooking techniques. With outdoor kitchens, the focus is on barbecues, grills, smokers, outdoor refrigerators and pizza ovens. So, our experienced design team can help you select the exact number and type of appliances your outdoor space requires.

FÒGHER’s portfolio incorporates two key types of cooking systems: gas cooking and natural cooking. We can also assess access needs to utilities such as gas, electricity and water. And we can plan for the appropriate plumbing and utility connections for all appliances, including outdoor sinks and fridge options.

The modular advantage with outdoor kitchens

One of the main advantages of FÒGHER outdoor kitchens is their modular system. This allows complete freedom of configuration, to accommodate the space and set-up needs of every individual customer. Each element, from appliances to furniture and accessories, can be combined to create a bespoke outdoor living solution that takes into account available space, design tastes and functionality requirements.
