As the summer heat continues to climb in Baton Rouge, many of us are eager to spend more time cooling off in our pools and cooking up delicious meals in our outdoor kitchens. Whether you’re one to plan a party with friends or enjoy a quiet family dinner, maximizing your outdoor space is a top priority. Consider enhancing your outdoor kitchen with stone countertops – an excellent investment that not only provides practicality and durability but also creates an elevated aesthetic for your outdoor entertaining area.  

Benefits of Stone Countertops for Outdoor Kitchens / Spaces 

When entertaining, you want a reliable surface for all the fun and mess that comes with a summer party or backyard BBQ. STONE has the perfect solution.  Known for their exceptional beauty as well as their incredible durability, here’s what makes stone countertops the ideal choice for Baton Rouge homeowners: 


Stone countertops like Granite, Dekton, Marble, and Quartzite are exceptionally durable. This means they are strong enough to withstand all the Louisiana outdoor elements, from heavy rain to intense heat, without losing their structural integrity or aesthetic appeal. 


Because of their durability, stone countertops offer excellent longevity and will not only look beautiful but also perform well for years to come. So, investing in quality stone countertops is a great choice to enhance your quality of life and the overall value of your home.  

Low Maintenance: 

No one wants to spend more time cleaning than necessary, especially not outside. Stone countertops are typically easy to maintain, requiring a simple care routine to keep them looking pristine. 

Heat Resistance: 

Stone is naturally resistant to heat and scratches, making it perfect for outdoor use where it will be exposed to varying weather conditions as well as regular wear and tear. 

Stain Resistance: 

When properly sealed, many stone countertops are resistant to stains. This is extremely beneficial during outdoor gatherings when spills are inevitable. Whether you’ve splashed a cocktail or spilled a bowl of sauce, you can trust that your countertops won’t display the memory forever.     

Aesthetic Appeal: 

Stone countertops are simply beautiful, and their timeless elegance adds just the right touch of sophistication to any backyard space. With a variety of colors, patterns, and textures, you can choose one that complements your design vision. 


Stone countertops are versatile and can be customized to fit a variety of outdoor kitchen layouts and designs. Whether you prefer a chic modern look or more of a rustic charm, STONE BR will provide a stone countertop option that suits your unique style.

If your outdoor kitchen is in direct sunlight, Dekton is definitely our recommendation. Available in over 40 shades and finishes, STONE offers a wide variety of Dekton countertops. 

Quartz Countertops: 

Though man-made, quartz countertops still lend a sense of natural beauty. It features the beauty and look of indigenous stone, but with even less maintenance and upkeep. When you choose quartz, you’re combining marble’s aesthetics with granite’s durability.
