There is nothing like cooking and grilling outside, and Spring Patio Covers is your outdoor kitchen expert here in southeast Texas. Add functionality to your home while creating a touch of elegance for your family and guests. You will never fully appreciate just how much convenience an outdoor kitchen adds to your entertaining experience, and at the same time, you’re increasing the value of your home. A number of outdoor kitchen options (for different budgets) are shown below.
We can construct a solid base cabinet for an outdoor kitchen from almost any material, but concrete masonry block with a brick or stone-wrapped finish is most popular since it features beauty, durability and affordability. Of course, we can do a custom shape with steel framing, an “L” shape or even an island – it’s all up to you.
The construction of a fully functioning outdoor kitchen will involve excavation for underground pipes, drains and gas lines for the sink, grill, and ice maker. Our licensed master plumbers will handle all of these items and make all necessary connections to your home.
In our experience, people like the same countertop outside as inside, and that often means granite. We generally use 2 cm granite with 1.5″ laminated edges. Edge options include bullnose, waterfall, round, bevel or square edges. One of the great qualities of granite is variety – it can be found in hundreds of color/pattern combinations. If you don’t see something you immediately love, we have a vast list of upgrades, or you can select a slab from any source and have us fabricate and install it.
One very popular kitchen option is the addition of a high bar. Some also add a round table to the counter for convenient seating. With an outdoor kitchen from Spring Patio Covers, your backyard will soon by the envy of the neighborhood!
Tile is a reasonably inexpensive way to add distinction to your outdoor kitchen. At Spring Patio Covers, our skilled tile teams can create countless unique designs and patterns for your backsplash. If you can describe what you would like, we can almost certainly create it! We work with natural stone tile, ceramic and porcelain, mosaics, glass and accent tiles. At our meeting we will go over all your kitchen options in detail, so you will have no doubt that your final selection perfectly fits your style and budget.
Stainless Steel Construction
Stainless steel adds style and glamour to any kitchen, and if you’re a fan, the good news is just about every kitchen component is available in this material. The list of stainless steel kitchen items is long – drawers, storage bins, warming trays, trash cans – even crawfish boiling stations! Some of these optional items might be perfect for you and your kitchen plans. At the planning stage, we will review all of these options with you to assure you get the kitchen of your dreams with no unpleasant surprises!
And then there are grills – one of the many advantages of working with Spring Patio Covers is that you can purchase whatever type of grill you want and we’ll make it look elegant post-installation.

We will recommend our favorite grills for looks and cooks, but the final choice is totally up to you.
Ask anyone what their favorite part of a backyard resort is (besides the pool) and you will likely hear about outdoor fire features. These become natural gathering places for friends and family, and we guarantee they will love it! Features such as outdoor fireplaces, fire pits and fire tables become great attractions and promote social interaction – why not get to know your neighbors?
