Outdoor Kitchen / July 29, 2018 / Amaury Dubeau
An outdoor kitchen design can include different components and styles and there are many factors in deciding on the right outdoor kitchen design. One of the factors is just how much space you have to work with. Will it just include a small grill island or will your outdoor kitchen be as big as your indoor kitchen? Will it be the place where you and your family will spend a considerable amount of time? It is important that for an outdoor kitchen to work you must be able to provide adequate seating and dining areas. If you want to be able to enjoy your outdoor kitchen when the weather turns cooler it is a good idea to also have an outdoor fireplace to keep everyone warm and toasty.
Bluestone countertops are certainly durable enough to handle the outdoors especially considering a bluestone countertop may match your dining patio. In style bluestone countertops bring a formality to the look of the outdoor kitchen. Other countertop options include concrete slate tile marble and soapstone. In the end local stone such as bluestone seem to hold the best balance between cost durability and beauty. (Also 2inch bluestone should be used instead of typical 1and a quarterinch. This will provide the countertop with necessary strength and durability for transportation.)
Why not use this material and save money for essential costs of an outdoor living space? Or given the low cost thinstone veneer can be used on your outdoor kitchen and grill as well as your cabana or home for a uniformed style. Not everything can be included within the outdoor kitchen itself. Just like an indoor kitchen you will definitely need your typical household appliances. Electrical outlets conveniently located on the kitchen backsplash allow hotplates blenders and rotisserie cookers to be plugged in right at your outdoor cooking station.
