New Englanders love the summer. As soon as the weather warms up, we practically move into the backyard and live there as much as we can – pretending that winter will never return. The backyard becomes an extension of our living space. We want it to be as comfortable and functional as it can be. Outdoor bars and kitchens can make the space better for entertaining family and friends. 

If you’ve been invited to backyard events this summer where the living space is enhanced by an outdoor kitchen or bar, you may be imagining the possibilities for your outdoor space. An outdoor kitchen makes entertaining easier. It allows the hosts to remain part of the gathering even as they prepare and serve the food. An ample outdoor countertop can also include space for guests to dine or relax with a cold drink. Even on an ordinary weekday, dinner is nicer when you make it all outside.

If you are thinking of improving your outdoor space, Boston Granite Exchange has a variety of stones to choose from. Not all stones are recommended for outdoor use, but granite and soapstone both are durable and well-suited for the outdoors. Investigate all the options for your outdoor bar or kitchen here.

When you are ready to enhance your outdoor space and bring your home’s warmth and hospitality to your New England backyard, Boston Granite Exchange has a wide selection of stone to make your outdoor living space more inviting for you and for your guests.
