Five ways to style your Trex® Outdoor Kitchen

Outdoor kitchen

Spring has finally sprung, which means it’s time to make the most of the great outdoors again.

There are countless ways Trex composite decking can transform an outside space, and we’re delighted to introduce Trex® Outdoor Kitchens™: the perfect way to take your deck to the next level. Promising the ideal combination of form and function, Trex Outdoor Kitchens not only look great, but offer a low maintenance yet durable solution.

If you’re interested in elevating your deck but unsure how to style an outdoor kitchen space, we’re here to help. Read on for our top five ways to style your Trex Outdoor Kitchen.


Juniper Trex Kitchen

Complement your surroundings

Using the existing space as inspiration is a great place to start when it comes to styling your outdoor kitchen, and this could help you choose the best cabinet colour for your deck. Trex Outdoor Kitchens are available in four striking colours – Ash Grey, Anthracite, Pearl Night Blue, and Juniper – meaning whatever your garden’s surroundings are, you can find the perfect match.

For example, if you live by the coast, Pearl Night Blue cabinets accessorised with white accents could make the ideal choice, or our green Juniper cabinets could perfectly complement a garden surrounded by plenty of trees and greenery.


Create a herb garden

Speaking of green, why not dedicate an area of your outdoor kitchen to growing herbs and vegetables?

Not only is growing your own produce eco-friendly – just like your Trex deck – and great for wellbeing, a herb garden is an interesting way to add a little extra something to your outdoor kitchen. And what makes it even better is that those herbs and vegetables are handily located for outdoor cooking!



Feature walls

A key design trend this year is the use of feature walls, and this can be incorporated into the design of your outdoor kitchen space. Tiles are a popular way to create a feature wall outside, and there are so many options available that you’re guaranteed to find a design that complements your chosen Trex Outdoor Kitchen cabinets.


Day to night

Lighting can help your outdoor kitchen become the ideal outdoor entertaining space from day to night. Whether it’s the addition of a fairy light canopy, outdoor lamps or built-in decking lights, this can not only improve safety but also allow you to continue to enjoy the area well into the evening.

If you’re interested in decking lights, Trex® Outdoor Lighting™ offers the perfect solution. Combining ambient lighting with energy-efficient technology, these lights can be installed with the deck or be retrofitted – so it’s never too late to add this striking yet practical feature to your Trex Outdoor Kitchen.

Rain or shine

Although Trex Outdoor Kitchen cabinets are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, positioning them under a covering such as a canopy means that you can enjoy the space even when the weather is less than ideal – this is particularly useful in the UK, thanks to our famously unpredictable weather. Speak to your chosen Trex installer to discover ways to incorporate covered areas onto your deck.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to designing and styling your Trex Outdoor Kitchen space. For more inspiration, keep an eye out for the launch of our new Outdoor Living Collection brochure – coming soon.
