Diresco: The Ideal Choice for Outdoor Kitchen Counters

At Select Surfaces, we understand that creating the perfect outdoor kitchen is about blending functionality with aesthetics, and choosing the right countertop material is a critical decision. One option that consistently stands out for outdoor applications is Diresco, a premium engineered stone known for its durability and beauty. Here’s why Diresco is an excellent choice for outdoor kitchen countertops.

What is Diresco?

Diresco is a Belgian-made engineered stone composed of bio-based resins and natural quartz granulates. This unique composition makes it one of the most durable and eco-friendly options in the market. Unlike natural stone, Diresco offers uniformity in color and pattern, while still providing the elegance and charm of a natural product.

Durability and Resistance

When it comes to outdoor kitchens, durability is a non-negotiable feature. Countertops must withstand various weather conditions, from intense sunlight to freezing temperatures. Diresco excels in this regard. It’s UV-resistant, ensuring that the color doesn’t fade under sunlight. Additionally, its high resistance to heat, scratches, and impact makes it perfect for the wear and tear of outdoor cooking and entertaining.

Low Maintenance

Ease of maintenance is another significant advantage of Diresco countertops. They are non-porous, which means they don’t absorb liquids, making them resistant to stains and easy to clean. A simple wipe with mild soap and water is all that’s needed. This feature is especially important in an outdoor setting where countertops are more exposed to elements like dust and spills.

Aesthetics and Design Flexibility

Diresco offers a wide range of colors and patterns, from subtle to bold, mimicking the look of natural stone, concrete, or even unique, modern designs. This versatility allows homeowners to match their outdoor kitchen countertops with any style, from a classic look to a contemporary design. With Diresco, you’re not just getting a functional surface; you’re also getting an aesthetic centerpiece for your outdoor space.


At Select Surfaces, we value sustainability, and Diresco aligns with this ethos. Its bio-based resin component is a green alternative to the traditional resins used in engineered stones. This makes Diresco a more sustainable choice, reducing the carbon footprint without compromising on quality or performance.

Installation and Customization

Our team at Select Surfaces has extensive experience in customizing and installing Diresco countertops. We can tailor these countertops to fit any outdoor kitchen layout, ensuring a seamless and precise installation. The flexibility of the material allows for various edge profiles and cuts, accommodating any design preference or requirement.

Selecting the right countertop for your outdoor kitchen is a pivotal decision. Diresco, with its durability, low maintenance, aesthetic appeal, and eco-friendly composition, stands out as an ideal choice.
