How do I plan my layout? Post date 28/04/2020 When planning your Al fresco kitchen, you really need to think about how you and your family will use it? Is it big enough to cater for the quantity of people you would normally have around? Will food preparation be carried out outside or in the house? If the answer is outside, have you got enough worktop space for preparing and serving? Is there enough storage space for cooking utensils, pots and pans, cleaning products? Do not forget a covered space for table, chairs and cushions when not in use. ← Can I use my existing patio, or do I need a new base? → What about the weather?
