If you’ve been considering new outdoor kitchen countertops or revamping your old ones, Artistic Stone can help you every step of the way. We make your BBQ island and countertop design and installation hassle-free. You’re only limited by your imagination! Our team can advise you on the best materials to use, and help you determine how much counter space you need. We’ll work with you to find the perfect selections for your budget and lifestyle.Outdoor kitchen countertops are subjected to the elements, so it’s important to select a material that won’t deteriorate. Your first priority with outdoor settings should always be durability. This makes natural stone a great option! Not only is natural stone durable, but it’s beautiful. Some types of natural stone may not be a good option for BBQs or fireplaces, however. Quartz has pigments that aren’t designed to stand up to outdoor use. Over time, UV rays may cause a quartz countertop’s color to change or fade. Granite is an excellent option for outdoor kitchen countertops. It doesn’t absorb odors or stains easily, and it shouldn’t experience any fading.
Quartzite is also an excellent option for your BBQ island design and installation. It has similar properties to granite and is very durable. Both options are also very easy to clean without any fuss. Like our kitchen and bathroom vanities, we offer many different styles colors and edges. You have the option of stone only or stone with tile. We carry a wide selection of tile in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and finishes.
Once you’ve selected your materials, we will create a base, work with your existing one, or work with your contractor. 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.
With the largest selection of prefabricated countertops in the Bay Area, you’re sure to find something you love at Artistic Stone. We’re proud of our workmanship and back it up with a free two-year conditional warranty. This warranties your countertops against all workmanship and manufacturer defects and flaws not visible at the time of installation.
