Good afternoon guys.
I’m looking to build an outside Kaboodle kitchen.
I’m at a loss on how to design the BBQ drop in section.
It would seem I’m missing something? Or are people altering an aspect?
I just want draws into one side 900
then maybe some cupboards under the bbq and then I’m having a fridge under the other side. Very simple.. well so I thought. All Kaboodle bases are 720 high, so how do you get the bbq drop in section? Raise the sides? Get cupboards n cut down? Please enlighten me, as I am in fear I’m over complicating the situation.
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @RayaJane. It's great to have you join us and many thanks for your question.
Unfortunately, I have confirmed with Kaboodle that their cabinetry and benchtops are not designed to have BBQ's built into them. As the cabinets are constructed from timber this would pose a fire risk and they could be damaged from excessive heat. Kaboodle recommends a free-standing BBQ with air gaps between it and any cabinets. I've posted an image below of a suitable setup for an alfresco Kaboodle kitchen.
Please let me know if you need further assistance or had any questions.
this is a Bunnings display. I would be installing a stone/concrete bench between bbq n the cupboards.
Many thanks for the image and the additional information that you'll be using a natural stone/concrete benchtop.
The supplier used in this display is Essential stone and their suitable colours are caviar and liquorice. These two colours are both fire-rated and suitable for exterior use. As you have mentioned a concrete benchtop would also be appropriate.
The drop-in section is created with three 600mm slimline cabinets positioned on their sides.
Please let me know if you need further information or had questions.
