Outdoor Kitchen / July 18, 2018 / Parnella Lejeune
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.)
It used to be that outdoor entertaining conjured up the familiar image of the picnic lunch at the park. You only needed a picnic basket thermos paper plates and plastic utensils. Or if you wanted to be able to host an outdoor luncheon or dinner you would toss some items on a barbecue pit out in the backyard and flip burgers and hotdogs. Cooking on a grill is a great way to entertain outdoors. However it is a nuisance to have to go back and forth from the kitchen to the patio. That is way outdoor kitchens have become more and more popular.
Sooner or later summer comes to an end. I dont know about you but I love to grill in the winter too. Try a toe kick heater. A toe kick heater is built into the bottom of the grill structure to keep your feet warm in the winter. Just as an umbrella sleeve will keep you comfortable in the summer a toe kick heater will let you cook outside all winter long. The subtle innovative design will allow you to stand by the grill until the food is well done. (Remember heat rises. Toe kick heaters will not only keep your feet warm but also make sure you dont freeze anything else off either.)
