Outdoor Kitchen / August 5, 2018 / Amaury Dubeau
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.
Another great costsaver for natural stone outdoor kitchens and grills is the use of 2inch ThinStone Veneer. ThinStone veneer covers the outer perimeters of a structure with a thin layer of natural stone giving the outdoor kitchen or grill the appearance of being made entirely of natural stone. For those looking to save money thinstone veneer creates the perfect appearance of a full 4 natural stone veneer but cost half as much because it requires significantly less labor. You your friends and your family will not know the difference between full depth stone and thinstone veneer.
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.
