A grill area that focuses as much on fun as it does on function is essential to a practical outdoor space. If you feel like your grill area isn’t living up to its potential, or you’re looking for a quick project to spruce up your backyard space, this may be a great solution for you.
Need Inspiration for Your Grilling Area?
The key to a great grilling area is only to incorporate items that have a purpose. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a lot of clutter. Here are our favorite solutions to revamping an outdoor BBQ.
1. Add Counter Space
Looking for a simple solution to making your BBQ more functional? Easy.
More counter space is always needed. A built-in cabinet and countertop will do wonders for your cooking, but it can also instantly add style to any space. You can also add in a sink to make this prep area fully functional.
2. Install a Roof
The simple addition of a roof will transform your cooking area. Adding shelter can make your grill space usable in all weather, but be sure all structures are safe distances from open flames.
3. Pull Up a Seat
Whether this is adding in benches or buying a few stools the addition of seats will make this space instantly social and comfortable!
4. Build an Island
We love a two-level island that makes it easier to cook, serve, and eat all in one place. Use concrete or natural stones for a solid look and to make the clean-up that much easier.
5. Install an Entertainment System
If you find you’re spending more and more time out in your grill area, consider adding in a TV or radio. You can keep the party going long after the food is served.
6. Add Storage
Shelves, cabinets, or even a cart is a great addition for any grill master. Keep all of your cooking accessories and ingredients safe and out of sight. You can also hide trash cans and grill cleaning accessories in the storage as well.
7. Add Lighting
Add in romantic lighting, motion-sensor lights, or install lighting over your grill to make cooking easier at night and more exciting for entertaining.
