Outdoor Kitchen / July 27, 2018 / Yseult LeBatelier
You should select sturdy and durable materials that can stand up to climate changes. Many building experts agree that Polymer is the perfect material for the construction of outdoor kitchens. It can withstand outside elements and unlike wood concrete or stucco it does not absorb moisture. Polymer is a solid material not a laminate or layered material and it will not warp crack or split. Countertops can be made from ceramic tile granite marble slate and other natural stones.
Before you decide to start your outdoor kitchen design there is one main thing you should consider: Will you use it enough? If youre the type of person that only pulls the grill out a few times a year versus the person who pretty much doesnt use the kitchen once grilling season hits an outdoor kitchen might not be worth the extra money. But if you and your family grill often enjoy outdoor dining and entertaining than an outdoor kitchen is a great addition to your home.
In summary pick a countertop. Choose a finish as long as its not polished. Use low voltage lighting and electrical outlets to make the outdoor kitchen as functional as the one inside. Stay cool with an umbrella sleeve. Stay warn with a toekick heater. Use 2inch thinstone veneer and a slabongrade foundation to cut costs. Include a glass tile backsplash for a stylish easytoclean surface. Finally always include a vent in the back of your grill so it doesnt blow up. Otherwise you may need these tips all over again.
