What could be more Australian than having a BBQ in your backyard? Of course, you need the right ambiance to have the perfect place to BBQ … not to mention the right outdoor BBQ for your patio or garden. You can find it all at House of Home.
If you’ve never looked at a BBQ for sale, or you’re interested in upgrading your current outdoor BBQ to a newer model, just follow this simple guide on how to make the perfect choice.
The first step is to consider your space. Some people like to have a small place where they can set up a charcoal or gas BBQ and cook items outdoors for eating inside. Other homeowners prefer to have a complete outdoor kitchen BBQ space.
Just remember that if you choose the latter option, you’ll need to have enough room for a place to prepare your food, cook it and eat it. Some homes can accommodate this kind of BBQ oasis — some work better with just an outdoor BBQ and a quaint patio table.
In most cases, the more burners on your outdoor BBQ for sale, the larger the dimensions of the BBQ. For instance, an outdoor BBQ with six or more burners is going to be much bigger than a BBQ that only has one or two burners. If you’re only going to use your BBQ to make small meals, or you don’t plan to use it on a regular basis, choose fewer burners. If you have a large family, or you often have visitors over for meals, more burners will equate to easier cooking.
Now that you have a better idea of how you want your outdoor kitchen BBQ to look when it’s finished, you can start purchasing furnishings and the right BBQ. Pay special attention to the design elements and don’t forget that your outdoor BBQ — whether it’s a built-in BBQ or stand-alone BBQ — can play a role in the décor. Outdoor kitchen BBQs come in several different colours, including black, stainless steel and some shades. This can help you bring out a certain style in your outdoor living space.
A final note that should always be said when discussing outdoor BBQs and outdoor kitchen BBQ areas is to be aware of all fire and safety hazards. As you would in your indoor kitchen, protect any flammable objects from touching hot BBQs or being near open flames. If you have questions as you construct your outdoor patio or garden cooking and eating paradise, consider bringing in an expert to give you advice.
