Timeless Design Ideas for Fully Functional Outdoor Kitchens in Fredericksburg, VA

The perfect outdoor kitchen has the amenities that make cooking fun and convenient. The kitchen itself needs materials—including pavers—that can stand up to the demands of cooking as well as the weather. Here are some design ideas for fully functional outdoor kitchens in Fredericksburg, VA, to inspire your project.

 

A Traditional Outdoor Kitchen

The hallmark of a traditional outdoor kitchen is the use of timeless materials such as brick and flagstone. But in a cooking area, one of the main concerns is ease of maintenance—and clay brick and natural flagstone surfaces just don’t stand up well to spilled food and condiments. We recommend pavers sealed with EasyClean for a hard-wearing surface that resists stains. Instead of a surface sealant, EasyClean is integral to the paver for unparalleled long-lasting protection.

Westport pavers would give your outdoor kitchen the warm, relaxed look of flagstone. The rugged texture and irregular sides give an easygoing charm to virtually any architectural style while EasyClean stain protection keeps the pavers looking great. This paver could be paired with Lineo Dimensional Stone walls: The combination of the textured flagstone and smooth, linear Lineo wall units could create a practical and beautiful outdoor kitchen where countless memories will be made.

Mattoni pavers, with their distressed finish and slender shape, could be ideal for traditional homes where the classic brick shape is desired, but not “brick red.” This paver, too, is sealed with EasyClean for convenience. You could pair Mattoni pavers with Estate Wall for a more textured look, or with the dramatic U-Cara Multi-Face Wall System, which gives you plenty of style options to match the look of your home.

 

A Modern Outdoor Kitchen

Sleek, fuss-free, and simple are three ways to define the modern style. With little ornamentation to distract you, modern designs bring your attention to the characteristics of the materials. Underfoot, you could go with Umbriano pavers, which feature a unique sheen and mottled color. Inspired by granite, these smooth, elegant pavers could be ideal for the demands of your busy outdoor kitchen. Sealed with EasyClean, Umbriano pavers let you focus on what’s important. Pair Umbriano with Lineo Dimensional Stone or the U-Cara Multi-Face Wall System.

Linear pavers are trending, and Artline pavers from Unilock are on point. These modern pavers may draw their inspiration from traditional brick, but different lengths and widths—along with two finishes—let you create a visually dynamic outdoor kitchen if you mix and match finishes, or a sleek and sophisticated outdoor kitchen if you stick to just one finish throughout. Artline pavers pair beautifully with Lineo Dimensional Stone and the U-Cara Multi-Face Wall System. You can also add a more contemporary feel to a patio that features more rustic wall units such as the Brussels Dimensional System with its tumbled quarry stone appearance.

You don’t have to limit yourself to square or rectangular pavers, either. The classic honeycomb shape of the Hex Paver from Unilock is a refreshing change from the ordinary. These pavers are great conversation starters, and they’ll reward you with a variety of colors and finishes to choose from, incredible durability (they are rated for driveway use if you want to carry the look throughout your landscape), and easy maintenance thanks to EasyClean. Pair Hex pavers with Lineo Dimensional Stone for a clean, fresh appearance.
