When it comes to your outdoor countertops or BBQ island design, stone is an ideal material. It’s durable, holds up well to the elements, and is very easy to clean and maintain. And of course, it provides an elegant and luxurious touch to any outdoor space. We typically recommend the following types of stone for outdoor kitchens because the sun’s UV rays won’t cause them to fade:
- Granite: Granite is a natural stone that’s a very popular choice for outdoor living areas because it comes in a wide range of colors and patterns. Although it’s heat resistant, we recommend using a heat pad or trivet to protect the surface. It’s an excellent material to use near BBQ grill islands. It requires periodic sealing, but once sealed, it’s resistant to bacteria, mold, and mildew growth.
- Marble: Marble is also a natural stone that comes in a variety of colors. It’s very durable and heat-resistant, but since it’s more porous than other types of stone, it can be prone to staining, scratching, chipping, and etching. For this reason, we don’t recommend it for high-traffic areas. It’s important to seal your countertops every six months to a year, depending on the color.
- Quartzite: Not to be confused with quartz, quartzite is a durable natural stone that holds up very well to the elements. With its color variations and patterning, it looks very similar to marble. It’s denser and less porous than granite, so it’s very resistant to heat, staining, scratching, and chipping, especially when it’s properly sealed. It’s also highly resistant to UV rays.
Our team would be happy to go over the differences between these materials in more detail to help you choose the ideal one for your outdoor living space!
Get Started on Your Outdoor Kitchen Countertops or BBQ Island Design Today
Once you’ve selected your materials, we’ll create a base or work with your existing one. We’ll create a template for the countertops, and then start work on fabrication. Fabrication generally takes between 7 to 10 business days after the template has been designed and approved. Once the countertop is complete, we’ll return to install it. BBQs take longer on average than most of our projects, due to factors like irregular shape cut-outs and non-standard widths. Stop by our showroom today to see our amazing selection!
