Good food is the main ingredient for any successful party or gathering. That's why in many parts of the world when entertaining friends or family, the common meeting and socialising space is in the kitchen. But when you live in a tropical climate, you might not want to be restricted to this small indoor space, and that's where grills come in. There's nothing quite like cooking on the patio while enjoying the summer sun on your shoulders.
So if you're looking for new home design ideas to welcome the summer with style, look no further. We've gathered a list of nine barbecue designs for your home that will be of use to you during any occasion, small or large. And with a few different styles, we're confident even the pickiest homeowners will find something they like.
This barbecue setup incorporates and entire seating area in its design. A basic grid structure frames and covers the barbecue area, where we find everything we could need for a unique patio experience–tables, seats, a giant bar to liven up the guests and obviously the all-star barbecue. Crafted from iron and stone, you can bet this barbecue will be in functional use for many years to come.
Our first grill is one that will surely take centre stage on your patio. With curved lines and exposed brick patches, this barbecue resembles a small house itself and comes across as a quaint accessory. But when it comes to functionality, this grill is anything but quaint. With plenty of counter prep and grill space, you can grill a meal for 10 people quickly and easily.
Here we have a rotisserie barbecue with sincere rustic style. The grill has space dedicated to storing wood for the fire, as well as a small brick oven compartment for extra cooking.
A couple of the previous barbecues we've shown you were built from brick, but here we present you with an excellent and elegant alternative: stone. Stone is equal to and sometimes even more resistant to environmental changes than brick, but the tone and smooth nature of stone gives your grill a more sophisticated look.
This design unifies three different materials for the creation of this barbecue: stone, brick, and steel. A simple concept with a wrought iron
cover shielding a small L-shaped
stone structure creates a grill with a large bar.
Here we have a stone grill with a slightly different approach. Instead of using a selection of large rocks for the structure, hundreds of smaller stones were used and encased in a metal screen for a more modern style. And due to this grill's location and design, it also functions as a trendy space heater for those evening get-togethers.
For more intimate gatherings, you should consider a grill like the one we see here. With just enough space for three or four people, this barbecue creates a unique coexistence among the participants, since it is within the reach of person sitting around the fire. This setup allows each diner to cook their food to their liking, and at the same time participate in the whole process of preparing the barbecue.
As we have seen, the grill itself has an infinite number of possibilities in terms of its design and functionality, but something that has been a very sought after element lately is the wood-fired oven. It's ideal to complement everything you need on the patio or in the garden and is ready to cook any dish that comes to mind.
Our last barbecue is something that is really one of a kind. Here, we have an organic theme that breaks away from the traditional grill image. Fashioned in the shape of a small tree, this tiny grill is perfect for those with small families. And for optimal practicality, it was given wheels. Wherever and whenever hunger strikes, this grill will be there ready to take on the job.
If you thought these grills were cool, you won't want to miss out on how to create the ideal grill and patio area!
