The pavers you choose for your outdoor kitchen need to be durable, easy to maintain, and of course give a sense of upscale luxury.
Achieve a high-tech industrial look with Arcana pavers from Unilock. These pavers look exceptionally beautiful in kitchens, where their speckled finish complements granite countertops. Choose from Vivanto, Corvara, Lugano, and Modena—four neutral yet stunning colors that give your outdoor kitchen flooring unprecedented panache.
Umbriano pavers from Unilock dress up your outdoor kitchen with the elegance of granite (the perfect complement to your granite countertops). Real granite particles dispersed randomly throughout the pavers, creating an ultra-realistic granite look. You’ll love the easy-maintenance EasyClean Stain Resistance finish and the range of colors: French Grey, Midnight Sky, Summer Wheat, and Winter Marvel.
Natural stone from Unilock could be considered the ultimate in timeless sophistication. Limestone premium natural stone from Unilock is available in cool grays (Hearthstone, Winter Mist) and a dramatic Black River. It’s perhaps the perfect choice for modern kitchens with an understated color palette and luxurious materials.
Sandstone premium natural stone from Unilock creates a warm, welcoming kitchen in two earth tones (Autumn Harvest and Indian Coast) and one soft light gray (Stone Cliff Grey). This option looks stunning next to large timbers such as a mountain-rustic pavilion.
For chic modern outdoor kitchen walls, you could take two approaches: sleek and rustic. Either will add character to your kitchen. It just depends whether you want more highly textured surfaces or not. But why settle for one or the other, when you can have both?
For smooth, the Lineo Dimensional System from Unilock is simple in design and makes for a long, linear look that pairs exceptionally well with large format pavers. Available in Sierra, Midnight Charcoal, Limestone, and Almond Grove.
For textured, Rivercrest Wall from Unilock gives your kitchen the timeless look of stacked flagstone. Choose from two neutral colors, Buff or Coastal Slate—and accent with any number of pavers or wall units (such as Courtstone cobblestone-style pavers from Unilock for a custom look).
For both effects, the U-Cara Multi-Face Wall System from Unilock gives you unprecedented choices in colors, textures, shapes, sizes, and finishes so you can create a completely custom luxury look.
Finish the look with Ledgestone or Universal Coping from Unilock. Ledgestone features pitched edges for a hand-hewn look. Its neutral colors (Buff and Coastal Slate) go with everything and give your kitchen a craftsman-like quality. Ledgestone is the natural choice for textured wall units, but it can add an unexpected touch of character to smooth-faced walls. Universal Coping features clean edges for a more modern look, and four colors that make it easy to pair with any wall unit: Natural, Light Grey, Tan, and Midnight Charcoal. It’s the ideal choice if you want to add sophistication to a rustic textured wall.
