Choosing Countertops For Your Outdoor Kitchen

In a previous post, we reviewed some of the most common countertop materials – stone, concrete, and tile. Here are other options you can choose from for your outdoor kitchen surface.

Metal Countertops

Laminate CountertopsMetal countertops are among the most expensive countertop options in the list. When used outside, they age and deteriorate faster than they would in an indoor kitchen.

You can achieve a sleek, utilitarian look with stainless steel countertops. This material is a classy, durable, anti-bacterial option that does not require sealing and is very low maintenance. On the downside, when exposed to the sun, it gets extremely hot.

For high-end luster lovers, copper is the way to go. This fantastic material non-porous material is bacteria-resistant and easy-to-clean. However, like any other material, it will get very hot if exposed to direct sun for an extended period.

Laminate Countertops

Even though this is a very economical material, constant exposure to heat, humidity, and moisture all cause laminate counters to rot or warp. They require ongoing maintenance.

Wood or Butcher Block Countertops

If you favor looks and aesthetics over durability, wooden countertops are for you. However, wood is not as durable as other materials when used outdoors. It is always high-maintenance, as it requires more protection from the elements than other materials.
