Outdoor Kitchens (a rising trend)

The latest American Institute of Architects survey shows outdoor kitchens are topping the list of project trends for the second year in a row. Summer always brings out the grills and the joy of dining al fresco and people are choosing to step up their game and designing spaces that can be used for entertaining and relaxing all year round.

Having the right materials for your outdoor space is just as important as what you put into your indoor one. We gathered up some stunning outdoor kitchens to make your backyards come alive this summer.

Let’s look Our products here at Imagine Surfaces - granite, marble, Vetrazzo, and soapstone - are ideal for your dream outdoor kitchen.

Vetrazzo makes an incredible choice for outdoor spaces. Durable, sustainable and unique, one can find a color palate that compliments a variety of surroundings from oceanside to mountain cabin. Talk to your designer about the eco-friendly choices that Vetrazzo offers.

Granite countertops are a perfect choice for an outdoor space with a touch of elegance. Darker colors can absorb the heat of the sun so unless your space is covered, like this incredible kitchen, it is better to go with a a lighter stone choice.

Granite tops the list for choice for outdoor countertops. It can withstand whatever you might put it through and deal with any weather condition mother nature might choose to throw at it. With the proper care and maintenance these built-to-last counters will keep their luxurious appearance and provide you with a beautiful space to gather for years to come.

Not to be left out, we could not feature outdoor spaces without mentioning soapstone. It has a non-porous surface that naturally protects it from moisture and other natural elements. Its unique coloring helps it blend right into the surrounding natural habitat. Like the other surfaces mentioned it is part of the sustainable design that we value here at Imagine Surfaces.

Regardless of the surface you may choose for your dream outdoor space, we’d love to chat with you about your countertop needs, and are looking forward to invitations to your gatherings this summer!
