Kitchen Servery Style

Published June 14, 2016

Are you looking for a solution to liven up your existing home entertainment area without having to completely renovate or redo your whole space? The ideal entertaining spaces are brought to life by bringing the outdoors side, helping you to relax, unwind and make the most of the Australian climate. We love to entertain in a beautiful outdoor setting however, having  access to our indoor kitchen can be an issue.

A great way to combine both functionality and aestheticly pleasing elements we require can be easily achieved by installing a kitchen servery bi-fold window. By installing a bi-fold window you are ticking off the essentials of bringing the outdoors in and creating the ease of passing food and beverages through the window without the hassle of working through and around other obstacles that may stand in your way.

We have a few tips on how to make the perfect servery:

 Space – Make sure that the window width is wide enough. If you would like to incorporate a bar into your servery window you will need to ensure you will have enough space for the number of stools you are planning to use. Keep in mind you should allow approximately 800mm of space per person.

Design – Think about the bench top that you have in your kitchen and try to incorporate a similar style to your bar top. For example, if you have an earthy palette in the interior of your home you could opt for a timber benchtop to add an extra textural element to the design. Another thing to consider is the type of window frame you desire – aluminium or timber.

Windows – Think about what type of window suits your space and what the main purpose of the servery will be. Bi-fold windows tend to be the most common because they open up fully for an unobstructed view.

Functionality – Be sure to choose finishes and materials that can withstand the weather if necessary. Many stone and solid surface manufacturers have tested their products for outdoor use due to the current trend of outdoor entertaining. If you are beachside then ensure that any stainless steel products are marine graded to ensure that they remain in perfect condition.

All of these points are an essential part for the planning process when considering whether or not a servery window is the ideal solution for your home.
