Las Vegas receives very little precipitation, and the warm climate perfectly lends itself to cooking and grilling outdoors. However, the scorching and arid weather is still far from ideal, so it is important to consider what kind of paving materials to use for exterior spaces. When constructing an outdoor kitchen, weather-resilience and durability should be top of mind. Below are some of the best options for paving materials for your outdoor kitchen project:
Brick pavers have been used for centuries and are a popular paving surface for patios, retaining walls, courtyards, and driveways. It is also an ideal material for outdoor kitchens as it can withstand high temperatures, and can easily stand up to frequent usage. Provided that they are laid over a good base and maintained regularly, bricks are very durable and can last for a lifetime.
The most common applications of concrete pavers are for flooring and hardscapes, such as pool decks, driveways, fire pits and pathways. Just like tiles, concrete pavers are manufactured in a variety of colors, sizes, and shapes that are ready to be installed. Concrete pavers are laid over a base of compacted soil and sand. Their surface is permeable since there is no grout between the joints, allowing water and surface run-off to pass through. Concrete pavers require little maintenance, but their smooth surface can degrade over time when subjected to de-icing salts and chemicals.
Natural stones such as travertine, flagstone and granite possess a classic, aesthetic appeal that can add value to any home. They are heavier than other types of pavers and are resilient to scratches, cracks and deterioration. They offer the best heat resistance among paving materials, making them perfect for outdoor kitchen structures like countertops.
Placement matters for you to make the most of your outdoor kitchen. Below are some things to consider when choosing a location for your outdoor kitchen.
The kitchen installation process itself requires water and power. Appliances need either a gas or electrical line. Your fridge, sink and dishwashers need a water line. Building your kitchen within very close proximity to your house can keep utility costs down.
Building your outdoor kitchen close to the house allows you to use appliances, equipment and storage for convenience. This is especially important when you’re prepping and transporting food from the outdoor cooking area, as it allows you to quickly move to and fro.
An outdoor kitchen built close to your property offers more privacy and protection. Safety hazards exist in an outdoor kitchen, as it is exposed to open air and the elements. Extreme heat or volatile weather conditions can result in unexpected injuries, loss or harm.

Below are some frequently asked questions from our customers:
Pavers make great material to build amazing outdoor kitchens. Paver blocks can be used as flooring for the entire outdoor kitchen, to surround grilling stations or kitchen equipment, or as a base structure for sinks and countertops.
Many homeowners consider using paving stones as countertop options for their non-slip properties, style versatility and durability. If you’ve decided on using pavers as a base for your outdoor kitchen, you may want to continue the theme for your countertop as well. Repairs are generally less costly with pave
The outdoor kitchen must have a solid footing made from cement board that isolates it from the entirety of the slab. Concrete makes a reliable and stable base; it also blends well with the outdoor environment. Stone pavers are also good options for the base as long as they’re built correctly and looked after properly.
The term “best” is very subjective, so the answer to this is dependent on your needs and project requirements. There’s a wide variety of natural stones that are a popular choice for outdoor kitchens. Among them are granite, quartzite, soapstone, porcelain, marble, slate, basaltina, and limestone. They are mostly resistant to staining and high temperatures, as well as durable. However, some of the options, like soapstone, for instance, is prone to cracks and dents. Sandstone and basaltina also needed to be sealed. You should therefore take each natural stone’s unique qualities into consideration.
