Outdoor Kitchen / July 15, 2018 / Agathe Marier
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.)
Including low voltage lighting in an outdoor kitchen will safely create a usable cooking space after the sun goes down and highlight the bold features of the structure therefore increasing the overall value of your outdoor kitchen and grill. After all not even the greatest chefs can cook in the dark. For added style to the welllit backsplash glass tile can be used for color and design. Glass tile also meets the backsplash criteria of being nonporous and heatresistant both necessary qualities for a backsplash that will have to withstand extreme heat and splashing in the kitchen.
