Outdoor Kitchens

Summers in South Australia were made for outdoor cooking and entertaining. Innovative Kitchens is excited to help you develop an outdoor kitchen with the components needed to make spending time outdoors entertaining friends and family a pleasurable experience.

Outdoor kitchens can be simple, using a few appliances, or include high-end stainless-steel appliances, UV-resistant countertops, and even dishwashers. We proudly offer high-performance, ultra-compact outdoor surfaces. These high-quality materials are durable and weather-resistant, they withstand UV irradiance and long water exposure, and they just look good.

We are proud craftspeople from the South Coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula and are excited to help our friends and neighbours enjoy the outdoor lifestyle of their dreams. Request a quote or check out our kitchen showroom at Victor Harbor.

What Our Customers Say

Bespoke Outdoor Kitchens

With over three decades of experience building outdoor kitchens in Australia, we know something about using the right materials for the right location and job. We want you to be happy with your outdoor cooking and entertaining experience. That is why we carefully select the materials used to fabricate your kitchen.


Dekton is a high-performance, ultra-compact surface that offers endless possibilities for creating outdoor spaces. It is scratch- and stain-resistant and requires no special maintenance. It is a nonporous, heat-resistant material that maintains its original colour over its lifetime. Since it is five times stronger than granite, it is an outstanding choice for large outdoor island areas.

Compact Laminate

Compact laminate is suited for exterior use. It is highly resistant to moisture, wear, and weather. We find it an excellent choice for doors, tabletops, and decorative panelling.

2pac on Evaboard

Evaboard is an innovative, weather-resistant material perfect for doors, tables, and decorative panelling. Evaboard kitchen carcasses are designed to last. The doors and drawers won’t sag over time. Thanks to stainless steel Hettich hinges, your outdoor cabinetry will have top-quality, functional, and corrosion-proof hinges that are perfected in form and function.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have more questions about creating your very own outdoor kitchen? Below are some of the most frequently asked questions that our customers have.

If you want more information, you can always contact us and we will be happy to help.

A quality outdoor kitchen adds value by increasing your living and entertaining space allowing you to enjoy more time with family and friends outdoors. Outdoor kitchens also increase the value of the home, nationwide they typically return 100% – 200% of the improvement cost.

Outdoor kitchens require space, they’re a permanent structure so they can limit the space available for other things. Outdoor kitchens also require regular cleaning and maintenance, as is true of any kitchen but especially true for a space where the natural elements are involved.

Outdoor kitchens need to be resistant to water and UV. Our favourite products for outdoor kitchens are Dekton or stainless steel benchtops, Compact Alfresco laminate for doors, Tricoya waterproof board for carcasses and stainless steel soft closing hinges from Hettich.

In terms of joinery, if the correct materials are chosen for the cabinets and benchtops then technically no, a roof is not necessary. However the more protection the area has from the elements the better, and depending on the appliances you select, a shelter may be necessary to maintain a valid warranty.

Not all BBQ’s can be converted to a built-in kitchen, if you’re wanting to check if your existing BBQ can be built in it’s best to check with the manufacturer.


Size and type of materials are the main factors that impact cost.

Essentials for any outdoor kitchen include a BBQ or similar cooking area, a sink for access to water and for convenient cleaning up and storage for utensils and outdoor serving items. If you have room to include a bar fridge there are a number of great outdoor options to keep a cold one handy!

Keep it simple and reduce the size if possible. For an outdoor kitchen to last it must be made from high quality materials, but it doesn’t have to be big or complicated to be amazing.
