If you are looking to build and outdoor kitchen then look no further because granite countertops are the best in my opinion. Not only that they will make you want to go outside and cook more in your outdoor kitchen. Plus they are weather resistant and very durable. Granite countertops come in such a variety and typically when you build a kitchen outside chances are you are already using some kind of rock to construct it especially in Austin Texas. Seem like a great fit just using a different type of stone.
As a natural stone here are a few benefits about the countertops.
A lot of people just love a very organic look especially in an outdoor kitchen, it just gives it that natural beauty. As I said before they come in a wide variety of color blends and shades. They have something called “drama” levels, which all that means you can have a slab that is subtle or you can have one that is very bold in contrast. You even have the ability to hand pick the slabs yourself before they cut them to your size at your local store in Austin
Since these are natural stone they have flexibility to them so when you have extreme Austin heat or harsh winters its very unlikely that you would see any kind of damage. That also is a very important because it is up to you to maintain them with proper care so they do not get affected. Now a side note to that is that you cant subject them to extreme heat if the countertop is cold by putting a hot pot on the countertop.
Organic granite is made from the crystal formations interlocking different types of rock. Due to the nature of their durability they have been used for centuries to create a luxury type of setting inside structures. If you were to accidentally drop a pot or something they you wouldn’t have any damage. If its hot outside and you forget and stick in straight on the granite you shouldn’t have any problems there either.
With all of that being said you would have to agree that it’s a great material to use on your outdoor kitchen.
