The Devil Is In The Details / by Chris Turner

outdoor granite barThere are a lot of decisions that need to be made during a construction project. most are pretty obvious and are very important (selecting a granite slab for instance for an outdoor kitchen.) However, what many don't realize is that selecting the granite is not the only important piece to the way the overall material "feels" as it lives in the space. Selecting the type of edge on the granite can create consistency throughout the entire outdoor space. For instance, designing a "broken edge" on the end of the countertop can give a more natural feel, helping if there are more native aspects within the entire space such as boulders, stone, etc. A bullnosed-edge or a flat edge give a more traditional or "clean" feel to the space, which may be more appropriate based on the architecture of the home, or the rest of the outdoor space designed.
