4 Must-Have Outdoor Kitchen Design Features

Are you considering adding a kitchen to your outdoor living space? If so, you likely want to create an area that is both functional and beautiful. You also want a space that will last a long time and be easy to maintain. This is why epoxy is such a great idea to use to create some must-have kitchen design features!

Here are four top outdoor kitchen design features:

1. Flooring

 If you have a concrete slab poured and ready to build your outdoor kitchen on, you can make it beautiful and help it last longer by coating it with epoxy. There are many decorative epoxy flooring options that span from various colors to creating a faux stone floor. You can even do 3D epoxy to create a one-of-a-kind outdoor kitchen look!

 

2. Countertops

Any good outdoor kitchen needs countertops. You need space to prepare and serve food. You can embed objects in your countertop, just use an epoxy clear coat over top of your countertops to protect them, or give them a unique look with paint-on colored epoxy. You can even create a marble or granite look with epoxy if you want to. No matter what you choose, epoxy will help you get the long-lasting and sturdy countertops you need for your outdoor kitchen.

 

3. Barbeque Surround

 Most people put a barbeque in their outdoor kitchen area. To make the barbeque area more attractive, a surround can be built. Many people use stones to create a fire-resistant and attractive surround. Epoxy mortar can be used to attach the stones to your surround, as it is waterproof and stain-resistant. You can also put a clear coat of epoxy over the stones, so they are well protected from the elements.

 

4. UV and Scratch Resistant Coating

Over time, UV rays can cause the epoxy to yellow. After creating your dream outdoor kitchen, you will want to be sure to take the additional step of coating anything you put epoxy on with UV and scratch-resistant coating. Also known as polyaspartic. This will elongate the lifespan of your outdoor kitchen, and keep it looking amazing for years to come.
