So Many Options
5 Outdoor Kitchen Ideas
Not only are landscape stones offered in a variety of colors, but they are also offered in an array of textures, allowing you to really get creative with your outdoor kitchen countertops.
Match your countertop to your patio slabs, or select a unique stone that will stand on its own. Furthermore, landscape stones also benefit from long-term durability. When selecting an outdoor countertop, the key is choosing a material that can withstand the outdoor elements year-round. That is what landscape stones offer you: long-term durability and color-resistance.
The sleek, uniform look attracts many contemporary design lovers, and it’s not difficult to see why. Although it is a stylish option, concrete outdoor kitchen countertops are not as maintenance-free as one may think.
In fact, concrete must be sealed on installation and resealed regularly, and can experience fading over time if exposed directly to sunlight.
Porcelain, like most types of stone, may very well be a win-win type of material. Not only does porcelain look nice, but it is also highly-durable, low-maintenance and won’t fade in the sun.
What more can you ask for? Furthermore, porcelain outdoor kitchen countertops won’t etch or stain and don’t need sealing.
Marble is a popular choice among homeowners for indoor kitchen countertops. While it is suitable for outdoor spaces, it does come with some maintenance requirements.
In fact, while it is a hard countertop material to the touch, it is actually a soft stone compared to other countertop options. For that reason, the weather will wear it over time. That is something to keep in mind if you’re looking for a one-time investment that will keep its shape for years to come.
Last but not least, granite! This material is the toughest, most durable type of stone on the market. Granite will not stain, comes in different varieties (honed, or polished) and holds up well to outdoor elements, such as cold and hot weather.
It also does not scratch or etch as easily as other natural stone options.If you’re looking for a natural stone option for your outdoor kitchen countertop, granite might be your best bet!
