Three Important Factors to Consider for Your Outdoor Kitchen Flooring
Before you pick your outdoor kitchen appliances, look down first. A successful outdoor cooking space starts with an appropriate floor. So, when selecting the material for your outdoor kitchen underfoot, you should consider:
Safety will always be the number one concern in any project. Glazed or porous tiles and stone must be avoided, as they can be slippery when wet. Look out for concrete, brick, and sealed stone. Ceramic tile is also adequate regarding slippery criteria; plus, this material is available in a variety of colors and finishes.
When you have already used brick or stone in other outdoor rooms or landscaping, it is also wise to choose an outdoor kitchen floor that either accents or is consistent with the styles of those spaces. You can choose from Contemporary, Tuscan, English/Traditional Tropical, and Old World styles.
Last but not least, consider your design needs and budget. Concrete is the number one choice for outdoor kitchen flooring because of its affordable price and durability. Coloring, stamping, or a rock-salt finish are amazing ways of giving concrete a whole new appearance to meet any of homeowners particular tastes.
Stamped or “impressed” concrete is a budget-friendly flooring option. Plus, it can mimic very good real stone.
If you have a little more budget, you can opt for authentic flagstone or Old World tumbled pavers which can be found in a variety of colors and textures are great options.
