Tile Outdoor Kitchens
If you love tile and you want to have it as part of your outdoor kitchen it can certainly work. Please keep in mind that ceramic and porcelain tile both chip and crack more easily than your other outdoor kitchen choices like granite, stone, and stucco. Maintenance is another factor to consider before installing tile on your outdoor kitchen.
It is not the tile that it is the concern but all the grout lines that become the issue. Grout is the most common cause of complaints with tile installations, especially with all the edges and corners of a countertop. The grout needs to be sealed to prevent staining and moisture that causes cracking and crumbling. Grout collects dirt and is more difficult to clean than the tile itself. If you
are okay with the additional maintenance and cleaning with a tiled outdoor kitchen, then it may be the way to go. Otherwise a less maintenance free product will be a better choice and you will be happier in the long run.
