Let’s examine the unique features the collection has to offer.

Choosing the Right Configuration

The Classics Collection offers a variety of configurations to cater to diverse entertainment needs. Whether you host large barbecue parties or enjoy cozy dinners, you can choose from configurations that include setups with grills and functional storage, as well as combinations featuring grills, sinks, refrigeration, and storage. These configurations are not just functional but are also aesthetically pleasing, guaranteeing a memorable outdoor dining experience.

One of the highlights of the Classics Collection is the island layout, specifically designed for social gatherings. It incorporates versatile storage, ample counter space, and overhanging countertops that invite seating and facilitate al fresco dining experiences. This layout is ideal for those who love to entertain guests, as it provides a comfortable and stylish space where everyone can gather around, enjoy delicious food, and share memorable conversations.

Selecting Finishes and Countertops

The choice of finishes and countertops plays a significant role in creating your ideal outdoor kitchen. The Classics Collection offers premium 2-cm dekton countertops, designed for safe shipping alongside the kitchen units. These countertops not only enhance the beauty of your kitchen but also ensure durability and longevity. For those who prefer custom countertops, materials such as granite or stone can be used, but they require sealing to protect against stains.

In terms of finishes, Urban Bonfire provides a variety of options for outdoor kitchen exteriors. These powder-coated finishes come in different colors, complemented by matching pre-cut self-leveling toe kicks and robust stainless steel leveling legs. Whether you prefer a modern minimalist look or a rustic country style, you can customize your kitchen to reflect your personal taste. The collection of finishes not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen but also offers an extra layer of protection against wear and tear.

Aesthetic Enhancement Options

Urban Bonfire’s finished back panels are a game-changer for aesthetic enhancement in outdoor kitchens. Crafted from thick marine-grade aluminum, these back panels provide a durable and attractive solution that complements your outdoor kitchen. The back panels are available in different sizes, ensuring compatibility with a range of kitchen configurations. Whether your kitchen is up against a wall or standing alone on an island, these back panels ensure that it looks visually appealing from all angles.

The beauty of these back panels lies in their customization options. You can choose from a variety of powder coatings to match the style and color palette of your outdoor kitchen. One such option is the exclusive NACRAĒ™ finish, inspired by the lustrous effects of mother-of-pearl. This micro-textured surface maintains its aesthetic quality in all climate conditions, making it a popular choice among Urban Bonfire customers.

Choosing suitable, aesthetically pleasing back panels enhances the overall style of your outdoor kitchen, lending a polished look to islands or exposed areas.

Durability and Maintenance of Urban Bonfire Classics

Urban Bonfire places a great emphasis on durability and ease of maintenance in the design of their outdoor kitchens. The use of marine-grade aluminum for their outdoor kitchen cabinetry provides double the strength and durability compared to typical stainless steel models. This material is particularly advantageous for coastal installations, offering enhanced resilience to harsh seaside conditions.

The cabinets are coated with a custom ‘Super Durable’ finish, which adheres to AAMA 2604 standards, for additional durability against environmental wear and tear. A limited 10-year warranty accompanies Urban Bonfire products, giving customers confidence in the longevity and quality of their outdoor kitchen investment.

Opting for the Classics Collection means investing in a product that pairs style and functionality with durability and reliability.

Material Excellence for Longevity

The material excellence of Urban Bonfire products is evident in their use of marine-grade aluminum, an environmentally sustainable material, for the cabinets and the NACRAĒ™ finish. The cabinets offer superior durability and scratch resistance, and are lightweight compared to stainless steel. They are engineered with drainage and breathability features to prevent common issues like mold and mildew. All hardware components, including door slides, pulls, hinges, and handles, are made from 304 stainless steel for longevity and ease of maintenance.

The NACRAĒ™ finish, approved by the FDA, ensures environmental sustainability and safety for users. This finish includes antimicrobial properties that reduce the risk of microbial growth on outdoor kitchen surfaces. Crafted with a micro-textured NACRAĒ™ Finish, Urban Bonfire cabinets maintain color stability and resist damage from outdoor climate conditions.

Easy Care for Busy Lifestyles

Maintaining your Urban Bonfire outdoor kitchen is simple and straightforward. Regular cleaning with soapy water and complete drying is generally adequate for keeping your kitchen in pristine condition. For your outdoor kitchen to last, regular upkeep like inspecting and cleaning burners, valves, and grill hoses is necessary.

To protect the stainless steel surfaces, avoid using abrasive materials like steel wool that can leave behind particles causing rust. Outdoor kitchen furniture should be covered with vinyl covers that do not contact the ground to allow for moisture escape, thereby protecting the furniture from the elements. With these simple cleaning and care tips, you can ensure your Urban Bonfire kitchen remains in top condition, even if you have a busy lifestyle.

Planning and Installation Simplified

Urban Bonfire simplifies the process of planning and installing your outdoor kitchen. A dedicated guide assists customers from design to installation, ensuring a seamless and enjoyable experience.
