Tips for setting up a barbecue area
Choose the ideal barbecue model for you
A barbecue area needs a barbecue, of course! Nowadays there are several models of grills. Some already come ready to install, others, however, are tailor-made.
The most common and used are those of brick. They guarantee rustic air to this environment. Currently it is possible to buy the preformed version of this type of barbecue. The difference is that they are made of refractory concrete and only lined with brick. But if you prefer the traditional model you will need to have specialized labor, since you must know how to size, width and mortar adequate for the barbecue to function properly.
There are also options of tempered glass, metal and built-in barbecue. Now, those who prefer to stay out of the smoke can opt for electric or gas models. But remember, this type of barbecue does not confer the characteristic smoked flavor of the barbecue, since no coal is used in the preparation.
Make it sunny or rainy
You have to guarantee the barbecue at the end of the week even in the rain. In what way? Covering the barbecue area. This simple measurement allows fun to happen under any weather. Not to mention that a shade on hot days is also good, is not it?
Once you have defined the most appropriate barbecue style for your home you need to think about the furniture that will make up the space. This basically depends on the size of the area you have available and the amount of items you need to store.
You can choose a simple hanging cabinet to always leave the necessary items for barbecue preparation, or use a cabinet below the sink to organize these objects.
But do not overburden the environment with cabinets. One tip, if you prefer a more rustic decoration, is to invest in the use of shelves and niches for the organization. They still contribute to the decor of the barbecue area.
Table and chairs
The tables and chairs deserve a special topic, after all they are indispensable to make the environment welcoming, receptive and comfortable. Most barbecue areas are decorated with wooden tables and chairs, but nothing prevents you from using other materials. It will all depend on the dominant decorating style in the environment.
However, one thing is certain: bet on a set of tables and chairs that is sturdy, durable and easy to clean.
A counter, similar to that of American cuisine, falls nicely in a barbecue area. It can be used to assist in the preparation of food or even as a support for serving snacks and drinks.
Wood and stones such as granite, marble and slate are best suited for the barbecue area counter, given the strength and cleanability of these materials.
To leave the barbecue area completely independent from the inside of the house invest in a sink. There you wash the dirty dishes, prepare the food, wash your hands and a number of other things.
Cleaning and organization
The barbecue area is a space of the house to stay at ease. So it may be that a soda falls on the floor, some fat splashing on the wall and the dishes are harder to wash. So the trick here is to invest in coatings, dishes and easy-to-clean parts.
The smoother the surface the better, porous or heavily textured objects and coatings make cleaning and organizing difficult.
Place for drinks
If you have a barbecue, have a drink. But where to put them? You'll need to think about it too. If you are not interested in a conventional refrigerator - or even if you do not even have room for it, it's worth it to invest in a fridge, a mini refrigerator or a booth.
Hit the decor
The barbecue area is democratic. Any style of decoration fits in it, although the rustic style is preferred. If you want to keep the conventional line bet on a rustic barbecue area combining elements of wood, natural fibers such as straw and wicker, and fabrics, for example.
Another suggestion is the use of pottery and clay in the decorative pieces. Plants are also good decorating options, not to mention that they help renew and purify the air
But if you wish to take a more modern path, opt for a barbecue area with glass and metal details. Clear and neutral colors also fit this proposal.
Finally, whatever the style of your barbecue area, remember that the most important thing is that it is comfortable, cozy and functional.
Swimming pool, oven and hob
For those who wish to go further in the construction of the barbecue area can opt to have near by an oven and wood stove and of course a swimming pool. Are you going to say that the barbecue would not be much more lively and complete with this trio?
