Powder coating has been used on steel in the automotive and manufacturing industry for over 50 years. It has now reached into the realm of interior and exterior design as an excellent way to coat outdoor furniture and cabinetry. Powder coating is an affordable and eco-friendly way to provide sleek and protective finishes to a variety of home ware, including kitchen cabinets. No longer is it used solely on shiny metallic appliances such as refrigerators, but also on countertops, outdoor cabinets and outdoor kitchens.
Experts in Powder Coating Cabinets for the Outdoors
With over 20 years of experience, Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens provides the leading quality knowledge and service when it comes to powder coating outdoor kitchens. The powder coating process offers the cabinets a defensive layer against extreme weather damage like mountain snow, desert sun and storms. The extra surface layer of a powder coat ensures durability as it will provide corrosion protection for furnishing materials that may otherwise break down quickly. Also, using powder coating on exposed surfaces such as cabinet doors and countertops can give owners peace of mind when it comes to worrying about stains, spills, and day-to-day wear and tear in their outdoor space.
Environmental Benefits of a Powder Coat Finish
In addition, powder coating finishes provide a variety of benefits towards the environment that are not found in other materials. Besides complying with environmental regulations and not posing any significant health risks, the powder coating product is also free from harmful substances such as:
- Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)
- Airborne pollutants
- Indisposable hazardous materials

The benefits of using powder coating instead of liquid coatings include producing less waste by-product and a significantly more smooth surface. Powder coating can be applied in much thicker layers without becoming runny or drooping, while liquid paint can lead to an inconsistently painted-on texture. Powder coating is electrostatically applied via a spray method and then cured in an oven, leading to the smoothest possible finish.
Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens offers a wide range of possibilities when it comes to powder coating colors and textures, including options for the look of industrial colors, which pay tribute to the imperfections of metal and stone at different stages of age and decay, as well as realistic wood grain finishes. Powder coating is a combination of pigment and resin, which makes it very versatile when it comes to color ranges. Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens also uses a type of outdoor powder coating based on Super Durable Polyesters (SDPs) that reduce color fading in the sun and are much more durable and weather resistant than standard polyester.
The Process of Powder Coating Cabinets
To guarantee the optimal powder coated finish, we start the process with the cabinet doors disassembled and painted as individual pieces to ensure environmental elements do not have direct contact with the stainless steel itself. They are then sprayed and moved to cure in the oven. At Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens, our Quality Control team inspects and ensures every powder coated piece is cured properly prior to shipping.
After choosing a stainless outdoor kitchen, adding powder coating allows another opportunity for design creativity and forms a lasting and durable surface. This method of protection remains the best option for the planet and a good investment in your home.
