Outdoor Kitchen / August 2, 2018 / Rosamonde Laliberte
The answers to these questions will help provide you with a brief introduction to outdoor kitchen options customized to your desires and requirements. Have fun and remember there are no right or wrong answers. To complete the questionnaire read the following five questions and choose the one option which most closely describes your outdoor living space and its overall function and purpose.
Next you will need to determine whether you will want your grill to be freestanding or built into an outdoor grilling island. Custom grilling islands can help provide your outdoor kitchen with a more upscale look. Just like an indoor kitchen island the outdoor grilling island includes masonry with cabinets. Many experts agree that custom masonry grilling islands can add tremendous value to your home. You can also go with a prefab grilling island. These prefab islands come in a variety of configurations and exterior finishes. They cost less than more custom islands.
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.)
