When planning an outdoor kitchen, one of the things you need to consider is what kind of patio you want to have installed to support your kitchen. There are a lot of options, all of which will have their own pros and cons to think about. In our opinion, the best choice is a natural stone patio.
One of the selling points for a natural stone patio is the fact that it stays cool, even during the hottest days of summer. Natural stone is not a heat trap, so the sun isn’t able to make it feel like hot coals on your feet when you’re enjoying your outdoor kitchen.
This is also a considerable benefit for anyone with children or pets. A hot surface can burn sensitive feet and paws, but you can rest assured they won’t be burned while running around on your natural stone patio.
Safer When Wet
On those hotter-than-hot days, you can spray your natural stone patio down with water for a little extra cooling and comfortable feet. Natural stone isn’t slippery when it gets wet, so you can still walk on it even after it rains or it has been sprayed by a hose or sprinkler. You can cook a meal in the sunshine while you cool off with the awesome properties of natural stone. It’s a win-win!
Natural stone doesn’t wear down the way other processed patio materials do. This is tough stuff that won’t budge no matter what crazy weather you end up experiencing. Severe thunderstorms, hail, extreme winds, excessive snow, you name it! When all is said and done, your natural stone patio will still be in place and look as amazing as ever.
When you head outside to spend time in your outdoor kitchen, you probably don’t want to preface cooking with extensive cleaning. Thankfully, a natural stone patio is blissfully low maintenance. Once you head outside, you can give it a quick sweep and spray it down to make it look good as new.
If you’re someone that is trying to help lessen the human impact on the environment, a natural stone patio is the way to go. These are easily reusable and renewable and don’t require a lot of extra manufacturing and processing like other common patio materials.
