The Best Countertops For Outdoor Kitchens
When selecting countertops for your outdoor kitchen, it’s best to consider what materials will hold up best against mother nature. Our favorite outdoor kitchen countertop materials include:
Granite is the best type of countertop material to use for your outdoor kitchen as it will hold up best in all types of weather. Other than a sealing once every few years, granite requires little maintenance and it won’t fade in the sun. Lanai Kitchens partners with highly skilled local granite fabricators to ensure that the job is done well, that there are no delays in getting the countertops done, and to get our customers the best possible price on their granite
Quartz & Corian:
These countertop materials are man-made and can be used outside, but they are likely to fade if exposed to a lot of sunlight. These two types of countertops, however aren’t usually any less expensive than level one or two granite.
Concrete countertops are also acceptable outside, but there are a lot of issues that have to be considered when choosing concrete. First, concrete requires a highly skilled craftsman for a good quality countertop and that usually means a lot more money than granite. The time it takes for concrete is usually a lot longer due to the processes involved (templating, molding, curing, staining, and epoxying) and certain finishes can’t go in direct sunlight.
