Thinking about an outdoor kitchen? Find out more about beautiful materials suited to outdoor applications.

With summer’s imminent arrival, there’s no better time to think about creating a beautiful, functional outdoor space for grilling, relaxing, and cooking outdoors. Naturally, not all materials are going to hold up as well when exposed to the elements as they would indoors. While marble and granite are prone to etching when exposed to acidic rain, and  Luckily, there are several surfacing materials that will hold up extremely well for exterior countertops.
1.  Soapstone- Natural, beautiful, durable
Soapstone’s non-porous, non-reactive surface makes it highly resistant to staining or etching and since soapstone does not need to be sealed, there is no need to worry about the chemical sealer breaking down over time. Soapstone will not harbor bacteria, nor will it react with acidic substances. It is both heat- and cold- resistant, and can be subjected to great fluctuation in temperatures without any risk of cracking or scorching. The stone will develop a rich, dark patina over time, though you can always oil or wax your stone to enhance the colour and bring out the veins.
2. Vetrazzo- Eco-friendly, made of 100% Recycled Glass
Vetrazzo is another material been primed for exterior applications such as patios, pool surrounds, and outdoor kitchens. It is highly stain-, scratch- and scorch-resistant. The colours of the glass shards will not fade or change with exposure to UV, which means that Vetrazzo will retain its beauty year after year. Like granite and most other natural stone, it will require periodic re-sealing to reduce the risk of etching.
3. JadeStone- a new and exciting porcelain-like countertop
JadeStone, a new and exciting product on the surfacing market, makes an outstanding outdoor countertop that is nearly impossible to scratch, stain proof, heat proof up to 2,000 degrees and is unaffected by UV rays. It is completely non-porous and requires no sealer, won’t stain and is completely moisture and bacteria resistant.
