Outdoor Kitchen / August 5, 2018 / Amaury Dubeau
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.
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.)
One last word about outdoor kitchens you may find that some people are much nicer to you than they were before when you have your outdoor kitchen ready some of them may even call and ask if they can come over for a nice sunny Sunday lunch and enjoy your new outdoor kitchen you dont have to invite all of these new friends and if they complain about you never answering the phone or not getting the door you can simply tell them you were outside preparing a nice lunch in your new outdoor kitchen.
