When it comes to home improvement, natural granite stone is often associated with indoor countertops. However, this versatile material has a lot more to offer beyond the kitchen. In fact, granite is an excellent choice for a variety of outdoor projects such as fireplaces, outdoor kitchens, islands and work stations.
Granite for Fireplaces
One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a material for a fireplace is its ability to withstand high temperatures. Granite is an ideal choice for fireplace hearths, mantels, and surrounds due to its heat resistance and durability. Additionally, granite can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any living or entertaining space.
Granite for Outdoor Kitchens
Outdoor kitchens have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. If you plan on staying in your current home and are thinking of updating, adding an outdoor kitchen is a great way to make your home feel new. They provide a great way to entertain guests while enjoying the outdoors. When it comes to choosing materials for an outdoor kitchen, granite is the top choice. Its durability and resistance to weathering make it an excellent choice for countertops, backsplashes, and more!
A remnant is a piece remaining from a full slab of natural stone that was fabricated from a previous project. These can be used in many places around the home such as cutting boards, laundry rooms, small bathrooms or make up stations. Outdoor kitchens are also a great use of remnant pieces of granite because the space typically requires less materials, which also can be more cost effective as well. We have a wide selection of remnant pieces ranging in uniqueness, color, and size that are available every day and open to the public as well as contractors, home builders, and cabinet makers.
In addition to granite, architectural limestone is another natural stone that is perfect for outdoor projects. It can be used for a variety of applications such as wall caps, keystones, address stones, and to compliment brick or masonry structures. Limestone is also a great choice for hearths and mantels due to its natural beauty and ability to withstand high temperatures.
Why Choose Granite?
While there are many materials that are recommended for outdoor areas, you want to choose a material that can be used in fireplace areas due to its ability to withstand high temperatures. Additionally, a low-maintenance material that is resistant to scratches, stains, and weathering is ideal. With our extensive variety of colors and styles, it is easy to find a design that complements your home and your style.
