The Outside is the New Inside

Kitchens have always been where family and friends gather, but Covid has meant that our outdoor space has become an extension of our day to day living.

Speak to a Specialist

We have all had to spend a lot more time at home over the last 16 months and that has given us the opportunity to look at the space we have and how we want to use it.


Our gardens need to be more than just somewhere for the children and pets to play, we want to eat, drink and socialise and not just when the weather is good.

The good news is that The Granite House has exactly what you need to put the finishing touches to your outdoor area. Granite, Quartz, Marble and Ceramics are the perfect materials to help create your al-fresco lifestyle.


  • Granite is the ideal option for cooking the perfect pizza on in your pizza oven;
  • Marble table tops will bring a touch of class to your outdoor dining;
  • Ceramics are heat proof, cold proof and non porous, so they will give you everything you need for your barbecue/open air kitchen;
  • Quartz is great, but more suited to undercover areas as opposed to completely out in the open. Or at least that was the case up until now. CaesarStone, one of the leading Quartz manufacturers in the industry, have just introduced their ‘Outdoor Collection.’ Showcasing neutral tones, their range focuses on durability and all year round performance for the summer and winter months.


Whether your garden is big or small, The Granite House can help. Our huge stock of off cuts includes Granite, Quartz, Marble and Ceramics in a wide variety of sizes and colours, and because they are off cuts they are slashed in price, meaning you can get a gorgeous piece of stone for your outdoor kitchen/dining area at a bargain rate.

And if your garden project is on the larger side then we can buy in the Granite, Quartz, Marble or Ceramic of your choice, making your space truly bespoke.


Let The Granite House help you create the lifestyle you want indoors and outdoors. For advice on your outdoor stone needs, give The Granite House a call on 01869 225962 or email us at [email protected]
