What should I look for in a new grill? 

There are many considerations to keep in mind when you’re looking at the different types of grills available for your custom outdoor kitchen, such as Alfresco, Coyote, Lynx, and more.

Think about the foods you want to cook, techniques (smoking, rotisserie, griddle), fuels, and then Synergy Outdoor Living design team can help you choose the right grill for you. When selecting, keep in mind material, workmanship, durability and size.

What are some cabinet material options Synergy Florida offers? 

King Starboard

King Starboard is marine grade material developed to withstand the constant punishment of the sun, water and weather in harsh outdoor environments. It will not rust, delaminate or rot when exposed to UV, humidity or water. 

Stainless Steel 

An increasing number of exterior living spaces utilize stainless steel cabinetry. With proper care, stainless steel is a noncorrosive material that’s also resistant to fire and impact. Many grills and other outdoor kitchen appliances are stainless steel, so you can get a uniform look throughout your living space. 

Masonry or Stone 

With a masonry system, structures are composed from a metal frame that’s then covered with decorative natural stone. Cutouts allow for inserts and appliances. These structures are resistant to the elements and effects of weather. 


Granite is arguably the best choice for your outdoor kitchen countertops. Granite is very durable, highly resistant to bacteria and holds up well to a wide range of temperatures. When properly maintained it is not easily stained by moisture or sunlight. As a natural stone, it is perfectly suited for the outdoors.
