Brushed stone moderately rough brushed surface with a certain ruggedness to it. The natural stone countertop will have a wispy texture that will not become slippery when wet. A brushed stone countertop balances the formal honed finish and the natural flamed finish. The brushed finish has a natural texture but presents this texture in a consistent formal way. Use low voltage lighting on the backsplash and under the countertop of your outdoor kitchen. Dont assume that you will only use your outdoor kitchen and grill during the day.
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.
If convenience is a high priority for you then dont forget about the refrigerator. Fridges come in many sizes including small enough to fit under your countertops. These refrigerators can hold your steaks dogs and burgers until youre ready to cook. They also work great for storing condiments and drinks while youre cooking. All of these elements may not be entirely necessary for every situation but if you have the room and the budget youll really want to go all out. Remember to check prices online and comparison shop for your viking appliances and dont be afraid to ask the dealer to price match.
In addition to rangetops like these you may occasionally want to use your outdoor kitchen for some more traditional oven cooking. Thankfully there are agency certified builtin outdoor gas ovens for just this purpose. Vikings ovens also have natural airflow baking functions which allow you to make sidedishes and desserts to go perfectly with your grilled entrees.
