Outdoor Kitchen / August 3, 2018 / Yseult LeBatelier
It creates a second kitchen Since most outdoor kitchens include a grill sink and mini refrigerator it will come in handy in the event that your main kitchen is out of commission. Outdoor kitchens can help you get through a plumbing emergency power outages (if you have an electric stove in the main kitchen) and a kitchen remodel. If the main kitchen is a mess of epic proportions and you just cant face cleaning it before dinner break out the paper plates and napkins and head outside.
When it comes to creating your outdoor kitchen the possibilities are endless. It can be large or small...from a simple portable or modular unit i.e. a grill with countertop space on either side to a grand customdesigned fully functional outdoor kitchen/living space complete with grill(s) refrigerators freezers sinks counters and lots and lots of storage space. They can be designed near pools on patios within gardens or almost anywhere that you desire to have an enjoyable outdoor living space.
Next you must choose the type of finish for your stone countertop. First of all never use polished stone for an outdoor kitchen countertop. The surface will blind you with reflected sunlight and always look dirty. Allow the natural stone to look natural and it will enhance the style of the outdoor kitchen. Some possible finishes for a natural stone countertop include honed flamed and brushed. A honed natural stone finish features a smooth surface without the horrible reflection of a polished finish.
