Outdoor kitchens

mrspeteDecember 18, 2012

What materials are appropriate for a small outdoor kitchen that'll be tucked under a covered porch?

- I've seen marble countertops/bars. Are those the same as indoor granites? They hold up okay?
- Can tile work outside, or does it become faded? I'm thinking it'd work fine since it can be used in swimming pools.

I've had both tile and granite on my "Outside Kitchen", (actually a bbq with a 2 burner DCS cooktop).

The tile only lasted a few years, well it was really the grout that gave out and not the tile.

I replaced it with granite about 7 years ago and the granite
still looks brand new, and sure is a lot easier to clean than tile and grout.
