Summer is finally here! Time to bring out the BBQ…and the stone veneer!
It took a while but the season for outdoor food grilling festivities is finally here. BBQ’s are great because of their relatively easy setup, entertainment value and of course for bringing people together. The barbecue unit is practical and efficient which makes it the main element of many backyards. Why not add some stone veneer to enhance the appearance of such an important outdoor appliance.
Now this type of project involves some concrete planning because once the installation is complete the grill will be set in place. The concept of creating a stone veneer backyard grill area is a more advanced procedure, so one should consult an experienced Stone Selex contractor. The process involves encasing the grill unit and any other outdoor appliances (mini fridge/prep table/sink) in stone veneer. The faux stones will surround the appliances to create an outdoor grill station. There are various ways to approach this, here are a few examples:
Stainless steel BBQ: For this type of project choose a stone veneer with a square and rectangular pattern. The installation space will be very limited, so smaller more geometric textures are easier to work with. Try using faux stone like the Canyon Ledge Chestnut or Mountain. These stone veneer lines are natural looking and easy to work with.
Charcoal Black BBQ: Dark coloured appliances go well with most stone veneer. Just like in fashion, black seems to mix well with everything. With this style of BBQ you can try using the Quick Fit Stone Veneer line. This stone pattern comes in a variety of colours like Winter Grey, Aspen Cream and Slate Grey. The monochromatic stone patterns compliment the charcoal black surface well.
By following this simple guide you’ll be able to create the grill station you’ve always dreamed of. Once it’s finished it will surely get the neighborhoods talking. Take a look at our website for stone inspiration or come by our showroom in Mississauga.
