Your Outdoor Kitchen

Should You Use Granite or Quartz for an Outdoor Kitchen

Weather resistant countertops made of granite or quartzite are the best if you’re planning on building or renovating your outdoor kitchen.

In terms of durability, they are both resistant to scratching, and are known for their durability and longevity.

Both of these materials have a variety of naturally occurring colors and patterns, from vivid pinks and greens to more neutral white, beige and gray. 


Strong, durable and resistant to common forms of damage such as heat, staining, etching, and chipping, Polished granite offers a high shine associated with the luxury appeal of natural stone.

When properly maintained, it is not easily stained by moisture or sunlight, and should maintain its original color and strength for many years. 


More resistant to long term sun exposure and UV rays than granite. Quartzite is composed of tiny quartz crystals which sparkle and shine causing a glimmering effect.

This makes it a popular choice among designers. Quartzite requires little to no maintenance, and is a cost-effective, durable option for your outdoor kitchen.
