Outdoor Kitchen Designs

DIY Outdoor Kitchens to enjoy on those cool spring evenings and warm summer nights.

Decks, patios, porches, verandas and other outdoor living areas allow you, family and friends to enjoy camaraderie and fresh air without leaving the comfort of your own home. Using these spaces to cook and share a meal is even more enticing.

If you’re considering or planning a DIY outdoor kitchen design, FauxPanels® can make it both simple and beautiful. The panels can be added to grill islands, seating areas, privacy walls and more to add the realistic look of brick, rock or stone without the prohibitive costs of hiring a mason.

Lightweight yet durable, the panels’ polyurethane makeup resists pests, moisture, sunlight and other potentially damaging elements. Installation is easy with a simple “glue and screw” method – you could have your project finished in just one weekend.

  • Perfect for DIY’ers with little experience

Our Customers say:

Wanted to build an outdoor kitchen on our deck that would be fairly lightweight and fit into the corner that was available. Built the frame to fit products that I had on hand and ordered Faux Panel samples. Order delivered on time and as expected. Fairly easy to attach, easy to grout and looks good with our cedar home and natural rocks nearby. Good product, a lot easier than using manufactured stone.

Rogersville, MO

We wanted the look of stone but without the weight or mess of mortar etc. We went with these panels for their light weight, realistic look, and ease of installation. Overall we are extremely happy, the results speak for themselves.

I was building a frame for my grill. Originally I was going to use a stone veneer, price was not an issue, but the weight was. My wife's company had built me a frame out of aluminum and I doubt it would have supported heavy stone. It was a matter of minutes before I discovered faux panels® and my samples were on the way. The product was easy to work with on the straight runs and took a little work on the corners, but just like wallpapering a room. Add granite tops, stainless steel pendent lights and its time to party outside on my deck, with built in bar and grill.
