Outdoor Kitchen / August 5, 2018 / Amaury Dubeau
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.
You can remodel without having to spend a ton of money If you want to update your home but dont have thousands of dollars to do so an outdoor kitchen could be the solution. It allows you to add on a new room to your house enhance your living space and pick out new kitchen cabinets furniture appliances and accessories just on a smaller scale than if you were to remodel your main kitchen. You can get your kitchen design fix without having to actually live through a kitchen remodel.
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.)
