Outdoor stone worktops

Are you looking to install an outdoor kitchen in your garden? Outdoor kitchens have become increasingly popular for many great reasons. They allow you to expand your living space while bringing more functionality to the garden – finally, a place to host BBQs all summer long! 

Before you start planning garden parties and getting too excited, it’s crucial to select high-quality outdoor stone worktops. Fortunately, you’ve found the perfect place! At Eaton Stonemasons, we offer a variety of stones for outdoor kitchens, including the highly sought-after Uniceramica. 

What’s the difference between traditional options and how does Uniceramica fare when used outdoors? Keep on reading and we’ll dive into the details… 

Granite vs Uniceramica: What’s The Difference?

Having worked with hundreds of customers over the years, we’ve found that granite and Uniceramica stand out as popular choices for stone variations. But what sets them apart from each other and from other materials when used in outdoor settings? 

  • Granite is 100% natural stone, while Uniceramica blends natural ceramic materials with high-tech manufacturing processes 
  • Uniceramica offers a unique blend of durability and aesthetic appeal, perfect for outdoor environments 
  • Uniceramica is designed to resist extreme weather conditions, making it an excellent choice for outdoor use

Why Use Granite For Outdoor Worktops

We know both options work exceedingly well indoors as table tops, counters, etc. With that in mind, how do they match up against one another outdoors? Let’s look at granite first to see what features set it up for success.

Here’s why granite makes a lot of sense when building your outdoor living area:

  • Easy to clean providing it is regularly sealed – which is perfect after everyone slops food on your outdoor kitchen counter!
  • A natural finish that looks beautiful outdoors
  • Scratch resistant

We should also note there are some considerations to think about if you use granite outside:

  • Granite is a porous material that needs to be sealed yearly or it may let rainwater seep through

Overall, granite is still a wonderful option if you are looking for outdoor stone worktops that are easy to maintain and withstand the variety of weather conditions that come with living in Britain.

Why Use Uniceramica For Outdoor Worktops

Uniceramica, on the other hand, brings its set of advantageous properties to your garden. Here’s why Uniceramica stands out as an excellent choice for outdoor kitchens: 

  • Incredibly low maintenance and simple to clean – a quick wipe is all it takes to keep it looking new 
  • Non-porous nature makes it superb for outdoor applications, avoiding damage from rain exposure 
  • Features a modern design that can complement any outdoor aesthetic  
  • Extremely durable, capable of enduring all types of weather without showing signs of wear
