Today, many people like to sit in a family circle, but not everyone boasts the presence of a fireplace or stove in the house or especially in the apartment. Therefore, most often equip the barbecue area right in nature.
Very often in a barbecue area, a regular fireplace is installed. However, the main purpose of the furnace in this case is not heating, but cooking a variety of food on open fire. Also around the fireplace with pleasure the whole family is going, so it serves as a place that unites close.
Barbecue for modern cottage is different from the simple mangala by the fact that it can be used for any weather. After all, such an aggregate is well protected from the gusts of the wind, and from the shower, as well as from the hot rays of the Sun. It allows you to stay close to myself without worrying about safety technician, as well as the opportunity to impregnate smoke.
Fireplaces of this type are often separated by a stone or any other durable material.
Among other things, the barbecue area serves as an excellent addition to the country area or country house. It will also give the opportunity to relax after hard work at the cottage, while trying to try delicious dishes cooked on fire.
The arrangement of such a zone is not only the installation process of the furnace, But also the choice of the most comfortable furniture to settle down from the fire. However, the heart of the barbecue zone is a hearth where all sorts of delicacies will be created. Often a barbecue compare with a brazier or a full-fledged street stove, but they all have differences. They are worth talking about to have a clear understanding of what exactly needs to be installed on the site in the barbecue area.
This is a very simple design, which usually happens steel or made of cast iron. It has a rectangle shape with small holes below. Cooking meat happens on skewers. However, adjust the height of their placement is impossible. Because of this, fry meat or vegetables on the skewer is not very convenient. This option is more suitable for those who come to relax at the site from time to time. In other cases, it is better to establish something more capital.

This option from the East becomes very popular in our area. Especially manufacturer will not be much labor.
Using tandoor, you can cook not only meat or fish, but also bake bread.
The most convenient and functional method for cooking meat or vegetables is a barbecue. Products are prepared on the grid, the height of which is easy to regulate. For those people who are satisfied with picnics not often, you can use barbecue transformers of different forms. They are light by weight, but they have much less functions.
Stationary barbecue partly similar to garden stoves. Their construction includes a brazier, having lattices that are perfectly adjustable in height. Build them possible from high-quality brick. Better, of course, choose refractory. Construction of a modern barbecue also has dampers for regulation of air flow. You can also make equipment for more comfortable cooking dishes in nature. For example, attach the shelves for dishes or to make the arrangement of space for firewood.
To build a barbecue area, of course, you need to spend a lot of effort and invest money. But at the same time you can get huge benefits. This is a full street kitchen, which is distinguished by high fire safety and which has a pipe to remove smoke.
What materials are better?
For the manufacture of a barbecue area, it is permissible to use different materials:
- refractory brick used for masonry furnace;
- Clinker brick, using which the base for the furnace is made;
- If the barbecue is under the roof of the arbor, then the logs and cutting board will be needed;
- Ruberoid used to waterproofing the foundation;
- Cement and Sand for the solution;
- Facing Material – Brick, Stone or Tile.
For any building or a separate part of the courtyard, the foundation is required, the barbecue area is not an exception. Walls can be put out of bricks or blocks. With the help of different materials, you can make a canopy of an unusual form, which will allow this zone to stand out among other site buildings.
Starting a focus, you can make inserts from some selected stones, tiles or bricks having a different color. The focus can have a metal kit. If the plaster is used for it, then you can insert beautiful ceramic figures until it has yet frozen.
Having found a suitable place, you need to equip it properly. First you need to take care of garden paths that will be made from the same material as the courtyard where the table will be. Most often used tile or stone. In some cases, the courtyard is poured concrete. So you can safely rest at any time of the year in the backyard, without fear that the rain or melting snow will spoil rest.
You can also zonate the space of the backyard – one side is suitable for cooking, and the second – for recreation and meals. For their separation, partitions can be used from different materials. They can be from wood, and from openwork metal wire and even from bamboo. The choice of material depends on what style is decorated.
Construction of the furnace better entrust specialists. For its construction requires refractory brick and mortar. The height of such structures is usually equal to the meter. Two lattices are attached between his walls. One of them for coal, and the second – for products.
After the season is over, the furnace must be covered with a cover, having previously removing the lattice.
Selection of decoration style
The barbecue area must be combined with all buildings of the style of style. If the landscape design is dominated by garden tracks and buildings from stone, then the zone for the barbecue is better to arrange in the same style. It will look very beautiful.
When the furnace is located on a platform from a tree, then, accordingly, the space around it needs to be issued from the same material. But you do not need to forget about the waters of the tree, so it should be treated with special impregnations.
An important role is played by a combination of colors. If the backburn is decorated in light colors, then it means that the barbecue area can be made of white. It will be perfectly combined with glitter steel from a stainless steel, as well as give beauty and freshness to the place where food will prepare. However, if there are small children in the family, this option will be inappropriate. After all, playing in the yard, the child is blocked and leaves the traces on the white walls.
Also, many prefer “natural” colors. This includes shades of brown and green. In the backyard, surrounded by trees and colors of the barbecue area, decorated in these colors, looks best.
Stylistic directions differ. Special popularity is now enjoyed by classics or oriental topics. Classic style is always in demand. Therefore, a discreet fireplace and furniture under the antique look great on any plot. But with the eastern direction, everything is much more interesting. In this case, low mangals or stoves can be used for the territory of the territory, as well as the original plants like bamboo or samsite.
For lovers of modernity, High-tech style is suitable. In this case, the MDF panels, having a glossy surface of PVC. The acuity of the corners, glitter steel, as well as minimalism in everything they will give a stylish barbecue area and expensive. It will cost not very expensive, but look very modern. You can also make a furnace in the form of a fireplace or lock. It will give unusualness to the whole interior.
Decor of the site
Decorate the territory allocated under the barbecue area, can be different. Decorations can carry and exclusively decorative function, and be functional and actively used.
If the owners love experiments, you can combine together different types of foci. It will not only strengthen the fire, but also unite different cultures. To do this, you can zonate a platform where each zone will be responsible for a specific culture. For example, combine open source with tando. It will make it possible to feel, sitting at home, traveler. You can also decorate it with forged parts or install on a barbecue bar. It will give her club appearance, and guests with great pleasure will spend all their weekends here.
For firewood you can make a small house, putting it out of the stone, and decorate the fireplace with some elements of artistic forging, which will give her a classic look. Even if the site is very small, it still can still find a recreation area. However, it is worth considering that the design should be harmonious.
The furniture also need to choose so that it corresponds to this or another style. However, materials for it should be durable and able to resist bad weather. Conveniently, if the tables and chairs have a small weight so that with bad weather, they could be alone easily move into a specially designated room for this.
Better if it is plastic furniture, it is not afraid of high humidity, plus very easy and does not require much care. In addition, its color scheme is very diverse. However, if the plastic will be under sunny rays for a long time, it will quickly lose its appeal.
Beautifully looks forged furniture, especially if it is supplemented with bright and soft pillows. It will last for many years and will give a barbecue area of aesthetic species. Also forged things are not terrible heat, however, at the same time, they are quickly heated, so it is better to keep it under the roof or light canopy.
A considerable role is played in the creation of style and different little things, such as wooden pallets or old tires. Of these, you can make both decorative figures and flower flower beds.
With the help of coniferous bushes or small trees, you can protect the rest area from other people’s eyes, And also make it a place for solitude. It will make rest at times more comfortable. Often around the perimeter contain containers with different spicy herbs. So tasty spices will always be at hand. Yes, and looks such drawers with greens charmingly.
Don’t forget about lighting. After all, sitting can be delayed to darkness, and then the lights in the corners of the barbecue area or the LEDs hidden on the crowns of trees will help pass the evening with comfort and brighten the whole territory. You can also decorate the plot and real candles. True, this is a temporary decision, since with changing the weather will have to clean them.
In some cases, you can even decorate the territory of color garlands that will raise mood and children, and adults.
And, of course, do not forget about garden figures or decorative pots. They will become an excellent addition to the plot decorated in any style. With the help of such small parts, you can emphasize the design features and equip the perfect corner for family holidays.
Sizes of the site
The arrangement of the barbecue area is largely depends on how much guests and what kind of rest family prefers. For example, if the company consists of two or three people, then it will be enough for a small canopy. If the guests are frequent phenomenon and there are always a lot of them, it is better to put a gazebo, which will allow you to accommodate many people.
Ideas for comfort
Starting the arrangement of space under the barbecue, it is necessary to make a preliminary plan. With it, it is possible to envisage everything and calculate the number of materials needed for construction.
From whether you have so big plot depends on what type of platform will be.
Such a platform is issued when there is no time in the private sector, and there is no time for the rest. For its arrangement, there will be a portable barbecue of small sizes. I wonder the small table with chairs, which hides only a canopy. He will definitely serve a good shelter and rescue from bad weather. In fact, with this approach, there can also be a very cozy area for recreation.
To organize such a zone, it is necessary to make a canopy and walls, as well as add it to the hearth. Very often, it is equipped on the terrace, on the veranda or in a spacious gazebo. It is possible to even turn in a full-fledged summer kitchen or dining area. Here it will be very convenient to cook, as well as relax in any weather.
Such a zone is differently called a transformer, because it turns out of the closed zone into an open space, so it has the advantages of both. Such a zone made of frames made of wood and metal. It is convenient because the design can be removed at any time and moved to the right place with the move or changing weather conditions.
So called a room in the yard or in nature. Often it is attached to the adjacent walls of economic buildings. The place is very secluded, there you can install any focus and make a canopy.
Regardless which project is selected, it is worth remembering certain recommendations. Firstly, on the territory of your site, you can not only install a brazier, but also to build a full-fledged barbecue oven with your own hands. Any of these sources of open fire must be located too close to the house, but at the same time and not far, otherwise it will be inconvenient to attract the cooked food or take the ingredients from the kitchen.
It is also worth considering that the brazier must be located far from fences, Especially if they are wooden or made of other flammable materials. Will be very good if there is a water supply. After all, wash the dirty dishes, without moving away from the zone for picnics, very convenient.
Very often to distract from urban fuss, the owners prefer rest in a country house or in the country. And immediately arises the question of the device for cooking and receiving guests outdoors. You can solve this task using the organization area for a barbecue, which will perfectly connect all the inquiries of the owners. Here are some successful examples of how you can do all this.
The easiest and most universal version is a barbecue place located under a canopy. In this case, it, of course, performs a more decorative function, since the roof looks like a wooden grid. It holds on wooden columns, which perfectly fit into the landscape design of the site. The hearth itself is a stone stove of large sizes. It has not only a place for cooking, but also a full shelf from the same stone.
Opposite this hearth there is a place to relax a large company. The center has a table, surrounded by soft sofas. Here you can sit in the company of loved ones or friends. Nicely pleases the eye and the presence of decorative trifles. First of all, these are pots with alive colors, as well as candlesticks stylized under the antiquity.
In some cases, the backyard can also be equipped with a dining area. In this case, outdoor space is used with maximum benefit. Here is the angular stove. In essence, this is a full fireplace. It is even decorated in a special way – not only a classic fireplace shelf, but also a spectacular embossed image.
As in the previous case, opposite the hearth is the dining area. In this case, it is more spacious. Furniture is also chosen with taste – stylish chairs and a table with bent legs are perfectly combined with all other details.
This location of the barbecue area is very well thought out. She fell off the green hedge from prying eyes, so you can feel solitude here. No one will interfere with homes, nor ordinary rest.
The last option is a barbecue area that is not designed for feasts, but for a simple rest in the company of the closest. Since the stove itself takes quite a lot of space, the free space for the arrangement of the finished dining area does not have much. Therefore, it is necessary to limit the necessary minimum. For example, a rocking chair and a chaise lounge.
Special attention should be done and the stove itself. It is quite large and consists not only of the place for cooking, but also from the “house” for firewood and a small elevation, replacing a table. All this is made of one material, because of what everything looks very stylish.
The arrangement of a barbecue area is an interesting process in which you can show creative fantasy. It is easy to set out for their needs, even if there are no places on the plot.
