Outdoor Kitchen / August 5, 2018 / Amaury Dubeau
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 deciding what kind of elements you are going to use in your outdoor kitchen first decide how large you want it to be. If you have the time and money to spend a large and elaborate kitchen full of outdoorsafe cookware countertops sinks and appliances can really make your outdoor space shine. If on the other hand you prefer a smaller and more intimate cooking experience you need only choose the smaller versions of these appliances and some omissions wont necessarily take away from the functionality too much. Luckily Vikings appliances come in many price ranges and sizes one of which is sure to fit your outdoor kitchen needs.
Including low voltage lighting in an outdoor kitchen will safely create a usable cooking space after the sun goes down and highlight the bold features of the structure therefore increasing the overall value of your outdoor kitchen and grill. After all not even the greatest chefs can cook in the dark. For added style to the welllit backsplash glass tile can be used for color and design. Glass tile also meets the backsplash criteria of being nonporous and heatresistant both necessary qualities for a backsplash that will have to withstand extreme heat and splashing in the kitchen.
