Frequently asked questions
HOW DO I PLAN OUR NEW KITCHEN?
The planning of a CUBIC outdoor kitchen will prove to be easier than you may expect. Customisation is our passion; every kitchen is planned individually according to your needs. If you have already drawn up some ideas, sketches or plans, let us know and we will realise your vision.
Thanks to our modular design structure the planning process is super simple. Completing our Planning Form will help us to gather all the important information needed.
You are welcome to send us your own planning guidelines, we always look forward to hearing your ideas. First of all of course, you should consider the following questions:
What is the perfect position for your kitchen in the garden?
What about the garden surface? Patio or deck? Maybe a roof terrace?
Which shape will fit your needs? Island, corner or straight?
Will your kitchen be built against a wall or is it accessible from all sides?
A floor plan will help us to understand your ideas. You might want to add some other helpful information such as the current garden surface, or perhaps just the overall space that you have available.
WHAT APPLIANCES CAN I SPECIFY?
You're probably already passionate about outdoor cooking.
There is a wide range of different built-in units to integrate with your kitchen. If cooking is your passion, we offer the widest range of methods. For cooking, you might want to have one of our extraordinary contemporary barbecues - a Green Egg/Kamodo - and for sure a woodburning pizza oven - or maybe you'll cook the French way by using a plancha or even a Japanese teppanyaki or Chinese wok. WE offer all of these options.
Induction hobs can be another option when you dine with family and friends. During cooking, you may also need some chilled drinks, so here you should compliment the kitchen with our built-in fridge. A real fridge, not a beer cooler. Ours will make ice and store food and salad properly.
To round up your outdoor cooking experience and for hygiene, the sink could be another essential item if you have a water supply and drainage at the location with maybe a hot water boiler or even a Quooker boiling/cold water tap. A dishwasher will perfect your kitchen and eliminate the difference between the indoor and outdoor cooking experience. If you want to go all in, a beer pump will make sure that your guests do not go home early!
WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU USE FOR THE CABINETS?
The carcass of your CUBIC kitchen will be made from our robust, 365-day, weather-proven and sustainable specialist materials – it's all a well-kept secret, but you can trust our vast experience in producing outdoor furniture for over 30 years.
There are three different options in the appearance of the materials we use for cupboards and drawers:
Special textured lacquer
A sleek surface, a special grain or our very special textured lacquer. The special grain is comparable to a wood grain. The textured lacquer will give your kitchen a more metallic, industrial look. Do you like the idea of soft-open/close wide drawers?
WHAT ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY?
Please see our commitment to sustainability. And we offer a 10 year warranty.
WHICH COLOURS CAN I GET?
Concerning colour, you can choose between ten standard colours or ask us for your unique hue. On top of these multiple options you can also choose to encase parts of the kitchen with our Lamella wooden slatted frames. A real design feature. Again, it will be your choice which kind of wood will compliment in your exterior. We can use the warm-appearance of Lignum-T or a brighter Sipo timber - sustainably-sourced hard woods of course.
HOW DO I CHOOSE A COUNTER TOP?
After deciding on colour, texture and look of your kitchen, another important step will be to choose the perfect work surface. You will have the choice between ceramic or natural stone such as granite. Ceramic is a super lightweight material, delivery is not so complicated and it is very suitable for rooftops as well gardens or terraces. We will ensure that cutouts for sinks and BBQs are always in the right place.
By contrast, shades of natural stone can be perfectly adapted to an existing patio surface – providing a natural, robust look - or could even match your indoor kitchen.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Each kitchen is built to your own unique specification. Typically, this can take from 6-8 weeks, plus shipping time. But we will work to meet your deadlines
WHAT ABOUT WARRANTY?
We stand for luxury, uniqueness and invincible high quality - with garden furniture, it is like good friendship - the best is long-lasting, decent and always there when needed. therefore we offer a 10-year warranty.
