Enjoy Preparing Gourmet Meals With These Ideas for Outdoor Kitchens in Lebanon, PA

There’s something truly special about cooking and dining under the open skies. Whether you’re cooking for two or two dozen, an ideal outdoor kitchen tends to be one where the cook feels comfortable and that features the amenities and appliances that are most convenient. If you’re planning an outdoor kitchen renovation or addition in Lebanon, PA, you could enjoy preparing gourmet meals with the following ideas for outdoor kitchens.
A Warm and Friendly Outdoor Kitchen
Outdoor cooking is often centered around gatherings of family and friends. This busy space needs to be made with materials that can stand up to spills and heavy foot traffic—and still look stylish.
This is why you may want to focus on pavers sealed with EasyClean. This sealant is integral to the paver (meaning it will not wear off the surface), which creates an exceptionally hard-wearing surface that makes cleanup a breeze.
If you admire the look of flagstone or bluestone, you could choose Westport pavers from Unilock. These textured pavers feature a small size that would give your outdoor cooking space an easygoing, friendly atmosphere.
You could pair these rustic pavers with outdoor kitchen walls made using the Brussels Dimensional System. These wall blocks feature a distressed finish that gives them the timeless appearance of weathered quarry stone—a look that could say, “Relax” around your outdoor kitchen.
The Brussels Dimensional System wall units can also be used to build custom fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, and water features. Consider adding a wood-fired pizza oven to your outdoor kitchen for a fun cooking experience as well as some warmth on chilly days.
Westport pavers in Fossil could be a great pairing with the Brussels Dimensional System in Almond Grove. Or, if you prefer cooler tones, you could pair Westport pavers in Steel Mountain with the Brussels Dimensional System in Limestone.
A Chic and Sophisticated Outdoor Kitchen
Many modern designs feature smooth, linear pavers and wall blocks. However, this is not written in stone, so to speak. You could still use textures in a modern space—and create a timeless look that will outlast any trends.
The secret is to keep things simple by mixing textures but keeping within the same color theme. For example, you could pair smooth Umbriano pavers from Unilock in French Grey with a textured wall unit such as the Brussels Dimensional System in Limestone.
You could also pair the long and lean Artline pavers from Unilock with Brussels Dimensional System vertical elements and enjoy the contrast between the smooth pavers and rougher wall units. Possible color combinations include Artline in the Smooth finish in Fossil paired with a Brussels Dimensional System kitchen wall in Almond Grove; or Artline in the Smooth finish in Steel Mountain paired with Brussels Dimensional System walls in Limestone.
A Fun and Vibrant Outdoor Kitchen
There is no rule that says pavers have to be square or rectangular. You could bring a fun yet classic touch to your outdoor kitchen with the honeycomb-shaped Hex Paver from Unilock. This paver (also sealed with EasyClean) could offer a refreshing change from everyday outdoor kitchens. Hex pavers come in a variety of finishes and colors, which you could use individually or mix and match for a fresh look.
Even borders and accents can be in the same color family to minimize visual distractions and keep the focus on what really matters—friends, family, and good food. Mattoni pavers from Unilock, with their distressed finish and slender shape, could be ideal either as a border or accent, or on the floor of a cozy or sophisticated outdoor kitchen. Mattoni pavers are also sealed with EasyClean for your convenience.
