If you’re like lots of other NJ homeowners, you like to dine outdoors when the weather is beautiful. For many, this means whipping up a meal indoors and then carrying it outside to the patio before chowing down with family and friends.
What if you didn’t have to run back and forth between the indoors and outdoors, though? What if you could take your Al Fresco dining experience to a whole new level?
Techo-Bloc provides homeowners like you with tons of amazing and affordable options for constructing a fully functional outdoor kitchen that will improve your outdoor lifestyle while increasing your property value.
See for yourself how you can construct the perfect outdoor kitchen with Techo-Bloc products.
Cool, Practical Flooring
If you want your kitchen to be inviting and practical, you need to start with a solid base, and that means picking the right Techo-Bloc materials for your outdoor kitchen “floor”. The good news is that you won’t have any shortage of great options.
Techo-Bloc pavers and slabs are designed and manufactured from reliable concrete and porcelain materials that are perfect for constructing a fully functioning outdoor kitchen. Why? Not only are each of the paver and slab collections uniquely beautiful and glamorous, but they are also extremely tough and durable.
This means that they won’t become scratched or chipped easily when exposed to regular usage, wear and tear. They are also naturally stain resistant and easy to clean.
On top of everything else, the materials are non-combustible and don’t tend to retain heat which means that your outdoor cooking area will remain safe, cool and comfortable as you whip up a delicious meal for your loved ones.
Because every style of Techo-Bloc pavers is ideal for an outdoor kitchen, all you have to do is make sure that you select a paver or slab material that suits your individual tastes and design needs.
We really enjoy the look of checkerboarded Tux slabs that resemble a classic kitchen floor. Borealis slabs create a unique and warm “hardwood” floor look that can really impress your guests. Or for a more natural and rugged appeal, you might settle on Flagstone or Eva pavers.
Stunning Pizza Ovens
A modern outdoor kitchen should be comprised of more than just a simple grill for barbecuing. If you want to host an outdoor dining event that your friends, family and neighbors will be talking about for a long time, we encourage you to consider installing a Techo-Bloc pizza oven.
Available in several varieties, these pizza ovens are both attractive and highly functional. Each kit is crafted to look as though it was built with natural stone, making it easy to integrate the oven into the rest of your outdoor kitchen and landscape.
The wood-burning pizza ovens will do more than just let you toss some dough and whip up a simple pizza meal, though.
You’ll be able to add brick oven flavor and crispness to a variety of dishes, including roasted vegetables that will delight your taste buds and keep you and your guests coming back for more. You’ll be able to cook with ease and flare without having to keep rushing back inside to check on the stove or the oven. This means that you’ll have more time to mingle with your guests as you prepare the food.
Complete Grill Islands
The Techo-Bloc grill island is the perfect thing for the NJ homeowner who loves to cook and entertain. Techo-Bloc has a fabulous sense of style and really knows how to take all of your favorite cooking essentials and transform them into an architecturally pleasing element of your hardscape that will transform the look of your backyard and increase the value of your home.
The beautiful faux stone island will compliment Techo-Bloc floors and surrounding walls perfectly while also standing out on its own. Within the island you’ll be able to have access to everything you need to create a mouth-watering and memorable meal for your guests.
Built-in stainless steel appliances look amazing when contrasted against the natural stone appearance of the island itself while offering up modern conveniences that will make your home appear sleek and sophisticated.
You’ll be able to reach into your convenient refrigerator in order to grab your meat, produce and other ingredients for cooking directly on your huge and oh-so good looking grill stop or oven. You can even rinse off produce, boil water, or wash dishes from the built-in sink.
There’s absolutely no need to run back inside unit the night is over and all of your guests have gone.
Although the Techo-Bloc grill island comes with fabulous counters of its own, you may be interested in creating your own custom island or countertops making use of Techo-Bloc wall blocks and slabs.
Whether you’re interested in creating a completely sleek and ultra modern counter with Graphix or Raffinato wall blocks, prefer the aged look of the Brandon collection, or are interested in the architecturally intriguing design of Mini-Creta and Mini-Creata Architectural “stones”, you’ll be able to create an outdoor kitchen experience that is perfect for your needs and wants.
In addition to building islands for preparing and serving up delicious meals, you might also consider using these wall blocks and slabs in order to create a bar island for watching the big game on the weekends. Pull up a stool to your fully-stocked bar with a flat screen wall mounted behind it and become THE place to be when your favorite team is playing.
Fireplaces and fire pits can also make for a great touch when completing the look of your perfect outdoor kitchen, and Techo-Bloc manufactures both. Adding a fireplace to your kitchen or using a fireplace as a dividing “wall” between your kitchen and dining areas can add a touch of warmth and vitality to these areas.
The traditional looks of Manchester Elite and Manchester Foyer fireplace kits mimic the look of natural stone fireplaces that were once built into colonial kitchens, creating a classic theme for your outdoor living space.
Fire pits can tie the look and feel of your outdoor kitchen, too, by creating a space where you and your guests can move to stay warm and keep the party going after the plates have been cleared and the sun goes down.
Consider toasting marshmallows and making a campfire dessert to share after your piping hot pizza. S’mores are always a favorite of those who gather around a beautiful Techo Bloc fire pit on a crisp NJ summer or autumn evening.
