When you've already used stone or brick in other outdoor rooms or landscaping, it's also important to choose an outdoor kitchen floor that either matches or complements the style of those features.
Here are some of Scott's favorite style-flooring material matchups:

Contemporary: Slate or cast-concrete tiles designed to be outdoors, such as Cal-Ga-Crete or clean, washed concrete in integral colors

Tuscan: Tumbled pavers, unhoned travertine, deep-washed exposed aggregate or stone-texture stamped concrete

English/Traditional: Brick or darker flagstones, washed concrete or stamped cobblestone concrete

Tropical: Flagstone or faux rock, texture-stamped concrete

Old World: Repurposed brick, exposed aggregate, Windsor Cobblestone texture stamps, fleur-de-lis and grapevine borders
