Meet the Home Owners
When the Rifkin family bought their home 10 years ago, they had always dreamt of expanding their outdoor space. Mr. Rifkin wanted an outdoor kitchen, while Mrs. Rifkin wanted to beautify the pool area. After finally squaring away the pool area, it was time for Mr. Rifkin to focus on building his Backyard Domain. With a passion to entertain and a beautiful screened in back porch, an Outdoor Kitchen was the perfect fit for the Rifkin home.
“When we bought the home, we had all the framework built for the Outdoor Kitchen, but our resources went towards the pool area first and the Exterior Kitchen got forgotten about.” Mr. Rifkin said, “My neighbor’s Outdoor Kitchen came out great and it just made me want to push forward with the project.”
Granite Countertop Outdoor Kitchen Remodel in Trinity
Mr. and Mrs. Rifkin called International Granite and Stone for an In-Home Consultation and scheduled an appointment with IGS Design Specialist Elizabeth W. From there, the couple discussed their desire for a stone with blue in it for the Outdoor Kitchen, and Elizabeth was able to show them pictures of slabs we had in stock. Ultimately, Mrs. Rifkin made the final design choice and chose Azurite Blue Granite for the Outdoor Kitchen Countertops.
“I wanted something that would play off the water from the pool, the blue tones in the stone are gorgeous.” Mrs. Rifkin said.

Installing Granite Outdoor Kitchen Countertops in Trinity
Outdoor Kitchens work best with a Natural Stone Countertop like Granite, as opposed to Quartz. Quartz is not recommended for use in direct sunlight, as the resin that binds the material together may change color over time with UV exposure. With Quartz, Sunlight through a window is absolutely OK, as your window filters out the UV rays, but direct sunlight is a no-no.
Outdoor Kitchens are generally much easier to install, given the more open atmosphere they are located in, and fewer doorways to travel through. Did you know that our staff assesses your doorways and stairways before we start production on your job? We do this during the Template phase, to be able to accurately gauge how big of pieces our Installers will be able to fit through your doorways or stairwell. Our Sales Team and Template Team will take videos of the Countertop Space and surrounding areas to send back to our Production Team. With this Outdoor Kitchen, our team of Installers was able to carry it right into the Lanai area, straight from the truck. Installation took about half an hour.
Tip: If you have already bought or picked out a Grill top for your Outdoor Kitchen, please send the Grill’s info and specifications to your Design Consultant and your Project Manager
