What to consider when installing an outdoor Kaboodle kitchen

A kitchen is a great way to spruce up your outdoor living and entertaining areas. The team at Kaboodle share a few hints and tips on what to consider when designing your very own outdoor kitchen using their products.

The Kaboodle kitchen range

One way to create your new outdoor alfresco area is to use cabinets, timber benchtops and frosted glass doors from the Kaboodle kitchen range.

Opt for undercover

Kaboodle kitchen products are moisture resistant so they can be used outdoors. It's important to install them in an undercover area to protect them from outside elements.

Avoid excessive moisture

Excessive moisture refers to water leaks and spills. It’s important to clean up any liquid spills as quickly as you can.


Kaboodle also recommends gluing and screwing all of your cabinets for better structural integrity, plus the glue acts as an extra barrier for moisture resistance.


There’s no doubt that certain areas of Australia are prone to sudden weather changes, so it’s also beneficial to apply a coat of glue to any exposed top and bottom edges.

Installing a BBQ

Remember, any barbecue and gas bottle installation must be in accordance with the barbecue manufacturer’s installation requirements and comply with Australian standards.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
