Choosing Stone Veneer for an Outdoor BBQ or Island

Choosing Stone Veneer for an Outdoor BBQ or Island

Today’s homeowners’ value outdoor entertaining and living spaces now more than ever before—and this is reflected in the increasing popularity of outdoor kitchen projects. If you’ve recently been contacted by a residential or commercial client looking for help in designing or building an outdoor kitchen, being able to provide quality and long-lasting materials is a must.

At Connecticut Stone, we offer a variety of exterior stone products to suit your client’s needs, including natural stone veneer for outdoor barbecues and islands.

Why Choose a Natural Stone Veneer for an Outdoor Kitchen Project?

When speaking with your client about an outdoor kitchen project (such as an outdoor grilling station), be sure to discuss the possibility of using an exterior stone veneer, such as ThinStone™. There are many benefits to using ThinStone as opposed to other types of traditional stone veneer for an outdoor barbecue, island, or other outdoor kitchen space.

For starters, ThinStone is significantly lighter than traditional stone veneer while still retaining the desired appearance. In fact, ThinStone doesn’t just give you the look and feel of real stone, it is real stone! And of course, natural stone veneer like ThinStone comes in a wide range of styles that are popular in today’s outdoor kitchen designs. From stacked stone to limestone and just about everything in between, you can use natural stone veneer products to help your clients achieve their look at an affordable price.

Natural stone veneer is also a practical option for an outdoor kitchen because it’s durable and will stand up to the test of time, and it won’t fade from UV lights the way some cultured stone will. And since some weigh significantly less than real stone, they’re easier to install and can be used on all kinds of structures. For an outdoor kitchen project, this can include a barbecue or island to create a high-end look.

When it comes to an outdoor kitchen project, ThinStone can be used in many different applications.
