Great Canadian Backyard Blog Series: Small Kitchen, Big Flavour

News, Top Projects, Uncategorized

This week on our Great Canadian Backyard Series, we learn that good things come in small packages. We head to beautiful Candiac, Quebec where Station Grill took on the challenge of building an efficient and compact outdoor kitchen fit for a passionate home chef.

What inspired the homeowners to build an outdoor kitchen?
The homeowners wanted to have an outdoor kitchen that was set away from the house and close to the pool so they could keep an eye on the children while they cook.

What were the must-haves for this outdoor kitchen?
This kitchen has all the essentials that are a must-have for an outdoor kitchen. It has a charcoal grill, a refrigerator, a good gas grill, a cargo trash and recycling can, and storage including a cutlery holder. If we could fit everything in, the homeowners also wanted added seating for a lunch/dining area. It was a challenge to make the kitchen as efficient as possible, while also including two places to sit.

Why was Dekton chosen for the project?
We chose Dekton Sirius for this project, for its light texture and its monochrome look. It is the best material for outdoor applications, especially in Quebec’s winter! Dekton is highly resistant to freezing and thawing as well as scratching. It is also resistant to UV rays and heat. It’s really the best product for outdoor countertops on the market. For this project, we used a thickness of 20 mm and did a shark nose edging to make the countertop look thinner.

Do you have any insight to share when it comes to building an outdoor kitchen space?
Make sure your you have planned the electricity, gas and water where you want to build your outdoor kitchen. Preparation is the key to a successful project. Also, a good thing to consider is having a bioclimatic pergola on top of your outdoor area.
