Give your outdoor kitchen the ultimate blend of high-tech materials and warm, inviting colors. The dramatic light-to-dark shading and the easy cleanup of EasyClean Stain Resistance are featured in one durable paver that will stand up to the most demanding conditions. These pavers are smooth, but they retain a non-slip finish for safety in your kitchen and patio. Enjoy the classic look of Cremo (a light buff), Castano (chestnut), or the drama of Nuvola (gray/black).
Enjoy the warm, rustic look of natural flagstone. Available in Bavarian Blend, New York Blend, Charcoal, Steel Mountain in random bundles as well as a trendy 5”x10” rectangle, Westport pavers pair well with any architectural style and are favored for patios, as well as walkways or driveways. This paver could give your outdoor kitchen a unique look.
For a high-end, sleek modern outdoor kitchen, it’s hard to beat the look of Umbriano pavers. Consider the timeless look of granite (Umbriano pavers feature real granite particles dispersed randomly throughout), a durable and low-maintenance EasyClean finish, slip resistance, and five contemporary colors: Autumn Sunset, French Grey, Midnight Sky, Summer Wheat, and Winter Marvel. Tie your entire hardscape together using Umbriano pavers on your patio, walkways, pool deck, and even your driveway.
If you love the idea of customizing your pavers—and you prefer a large-format, modern style—Skyline pavers are worth a look. These 24” square slabs can be ideal for outdoor kitchens, since there’s less jointing compound to clean. You can make these stylish pavers even more kitchen-friendly with an optional Umbriano finish to ensure lasting color, and EasyClean Stain Resistance for easier cleanup. These neutral colors—Medium Grey and Desert—are like the “little black dress” of pavers: they go with any style, in any setting.
If you love the look and the texture of bluestone (a remarkable blue/gray variety of flagstone), Richcliff pavers deliver. Enjoy an ultra-realistic look thanks to Reala Technology, which uses casts from a variety of natural stones. This eliminates the obvious “faux stone” look with repetitive patterns. But don’t let the rich textures fool you! EasyClean Stain Resistance makes cleanup a breeze. To achieve the right tone of bluestone, you can use Pebble Taupe on its own or Smoke Shale on its own. Or you could have two colors blended for a completely one-of-a-kind look: Dawn Mist and Pebble Taupe blended on site could achieve a warmer and lighter look, and Dawn Mist and Smoke Shale could achieve a sophisticated look perfect for modern outdoor kitchens. Like Umbriano, you can use these pavers for any hardscape: patios, walkways, pool decks, and driveways.
