Denver Natural Stone Outdoor Kitchen Materials


June 10, 2020

Outdoor cooking is a staple of the summer months across America. As the temperatures rise and weather cooperates, individuals elect to get out of the kitchen and grill, griddle, smoke, barbecue and cook their meats and vegetables in the open air. Whether you’re smoking a rack of baby back ribs, grilling a steak, or simply cooking up a few pancakes on an outdoor griddle, it just seems food prepared in the open air tastes better. While many homes are outfitted with either a gas or charcoal grill, many individuals have been taking their outdoor cooking spaces to the next level. Receiving an abundance of use and doubling as an entertainment space, outdoor kitchens are rising in popularity.

The benefits of an outdoor kitchen are many. Not only can it help to reduce dirtying up the inside of your home but it can also increase your property value and serve as an extension of your residence. Already the heart of a home, adding another kitchen presents a new place for family and friends to gather while sharing in the community of a meal from preparation to consumption. From extravagant to thrifty or reasonable, there are a wide variety of options for any homeowner to examine the possibilities of adding a serviceable kitchen around their outdoor cooking space.

Flooring

Covered or not, exposure to the elements makes natural stone flooring a wise decision. From pavers to ceramic or porcelain tiles and limestone, there are a variety of different options available to homeowners. Each has their own set of characteristics and varies in price so there’s a wide range of materials to fit any size budget.

Countertops

Granite is as solid an option outdoors as it is within the indoor kitchen. A dense and durable stone, this material is great for countertops. In addition, there are other construction materials - various types of tiles and quartz, provided it’s covered - which may also suit a property owner’s needs.

Ledgers

Outdoor kitchens can be built from the ground up or installed via kits which often include some type of cabinetry. Ledgers are a great way to give your kitchen the all-natural feel in the open air. These stacks of natural stones can provide an aesthetic appeal which cannot be achieved with any other type of material. Depending on the design of your outdoor space, ledgers can also be used to cover columns or posts used to uphold a shelter over the new addition.
