Style and function both need to be considered when choosing outdoor kitchen countertops, so opt for something that boasts resilient properties but also creates a wonderful focal point in the scheme.

‘Stone kitchen countertops are an ideal choice due to their durability and performance in dealing with both the elements and outdoor cooking. They boast long-term durability and are ideal for embracing the outdoor living lifestyle,’ explains Tansu Ulu, design and brand manager at Marble Systems.

‘Granite stands out as one of the least absorbent and highly resistant to stains and scratches among natural stone options,’ Tansu adds. Low absorbency is an important factor to consider, as they will need to withstand rainy weather, making granite a wonderful option.

If a rustic design is more suited to your style, there are several alternatives to the more polished stone options that prove popular. Of course, the materials you pair with the countertop are key to creating an authentic scheme, but the right material will make all the difference.

‘Limestone countertops resist stains, moisture, and bacteria yet create a rustic charm in appearance,’ says Tansu. In this outdoor kitchen, an island has been created using natural stones, while a limestone counter finishes the scheme off beautifully, and offers rustic charm that blends into the surroundings.

Outdoor kitchen countertop materials have come a long way. As well as choosing something durable and resilient, there is now a wide range of options that are as aesthetic as they are practical. Whether you opt for stone, concrete, or porcelain, there’s something to suit every style and budget.
