Barbeque parties are not just a summer delight. Enjoying incredible outdoor barbecues in chilly winters have its own charm. For complete satisfaction, having a full-fledged outdoor kitchen is the best way.
You need a strong surface that prevents cracks and stains due to cold and wet weather in the winter. Hence, the best solution is a granite countertop.

It offers a celebratory look and touch that resemble brown coffee and ice cream textures.
Before installing any barbeque countertop, identify the most common wind direction in winters for protection from blisters. Try installing the top near the structure of your home so that you feel cosy while partying outside in winter. However, ensure to avoid cooking in an enclosed area to prevent a fire hazard.

For that, you can opt for Imperial White Granite. This stone is more grey than white. Different shades of grey are a winter interior design trend.
With a neutral palette, and the hues of the mist, fog and frost, it evokes a nice cosy feel. Now, place an armchair against the wall and capture the nook to read your favourite book.
