In an outdoor setting inferior craftsmanship will deteriorate quickly. When choosing outdoor kitchen countertops your priority should always be durability first, and looks second. Otherwise, you'll find your investment going up in smoke.
Marble is a gorgeous and luxurious countertop choice, and bakers love the surface because its cold temperature provides the perfect workspace for kneading dough. It can, however, chip easily, so it is important to periodically seal it. Tile is also a popular choice for people who are seeking a versatile and budget-friendly countertop. Tiles are heat- and stain-resistant, and they're available in a number of colors, materials, sizes and patterns. Consider keeping a few extra tiles on hand in the event that one chips and needs to be replaced.
While aesthetics are certainly important, it's also important to keep in mind the cost, maintenance, and durability of the countertop material, whether you're renovating or starting from scratch. Marble, one of the most luxurious kitchen countertop materials, is the gold standard, but its cost can be prohibitive.
