Country cottage area in the minds of people has long passed from the category of places for growing vegetables and fruits in a family recreation center. After such entertainment, it's time to dinner, and there's nothing better than meat cooked on the fire. But to build a fire at the cottage is not the best idea from the standpoint of fire safety, therefore it is necessary to equip a special section - barbecue area. Let's agree that this name will summarize several possible cooking options at once not only on the open, but also on a closed fire, and consider them in more detail in order to choose the most optimal option for a summer residence.

Basics of Design
Before proceeding to consider possible projects, let us note a few rules, which should be listened to when they are implemented independently.
- The first rule is the optimal distance to the residential structure. In the event that there is no separate supply of water and power supplies to the planned facility, it is useless to set it aside for the maximum distance. Moreover, provided that the products will be stored in the building, for example, in a small fridge, they will have to come back from time to time.
- Rule two - level elevated platform. Its use is clearly necessary, because unfavorable weather conditions will lead to the fact that it is simply impossible to use the allocated territory for its intended purpose.
- The third rule is that the place of cooking should be separated from the place where people eat. You can do it physically or conditionally. In the first case, all kinds of walls are used for this, including gratings or living plantations, while for the second one means active application of zoning techniques with the division of tables, the roofs and a simple organization of passes.
The easiest thing in the organization will be this method. It does not require specific means and a lot of building materials, and most importantly - labor costs. For him is ideal for purchase BBQ or barbecue. Fantasy can not be limited to installation chaise-longues or benches with tables. They will be successfully replaced swing, Located near the hearth, which can be built on an open basis.
The main thing is that it does not require any roof, or walls, limiting the freedom of action and review of the surrounding nature. But when choosing furniture it is worth giving preference to those options that will be easily transferred from place to place in case of bad weather or simply will not spoil from excess moisture or sun. An example is forged armchairs and tables, covered with facade varnish.
This option is most often used, because it has not only a huge number of modifications, but also has an optimal set of convenient properties, such as all-weather and attractive appearance. It can be organically written in home design, using the same techniques and similar building materials.
Closed-type variations are arbours and pavilions, which can be combined with full ovens, where you can cook a large number of different dishes, that is, use not only the grill or barbecue. Perhaps this is thanks to the pipes that are displayed above the roof.
On a note! In this there is another plus - the absence of smoke and the smell of burning, capable of spoiling the summer mood.
Availability roofing allows you to rest regardless of the vagaries of the weather, and if a little rain falls, the guests will still be satisfied with the taste of shish kebab and other treats. As a bonus - the freedom in choosing furniture, as it will not be susceptible to active sunlight and precipitation.
This design is called universal, because it combines the advantages of open and closed design projects. This effect is achieved due to folding modular parts. Their striking example are retractable and stretched roofs, which are supplemented with folding furniture. Mobile frames made of wood or metal, as well as their combinations with textiles, can also be used.
On a note! It is important that such a space can be adapted in accordance with the season and seasonal vagaries of the weather.
This approach will not allow the installation of a stationary stove heated with wood, but you can take full advantage of the benefits of large barbecues with wheels and even built-in oven for baking.
This version of the design came from the West, where such structures are often used directly from houses located in the suburbs, but in a fairly dense building, where the neighbor literally can look beyond the fence, where the lawn, as usual, is greener. To avoid this, organize patio - a plot of a courtyard with walls, but without a roof, in which you can set seats, tables and, of course, B-B-Q.
Advice! Dimensions of the patio are small, so in the base without problems you can organize a platform from paving slabs or a full foundation, adjacent to the main structure.
Starting from the selection of a furnace or hearth, many forget about the decor, which is important, because not only food intake will play a leading role in the allocated zone. It should be comfortable enough for pleasant conversation and relaxation after a long summer day. Therefore it is necessary to take care of additional conveniences - plaids and pillows.
Advice! It is desirable that the surface of the furniture is smooth and without pile, so as not to accumulate outdoor dirt and moisture.
Another important emphasis - Outdoor Lighting, which is especially important in the evening. At the same time, it can be attached to the general lighting system on the site or made individual, so that if necessary, it varies according to the situation and the number of people present. It is important to pay attention to the quality of the lighting devices. They must comply with the standard of outdoor lighting with respect to resistance to moisture and dust. Otherwise, you will not have to count on long-term operation.
As you can see, there are many ways to organize a place of civilized food intake in the open air, and each of them has its own nuances. But whatever your decision, believe in success and let your site become a great place for personal relaxation and spiritual gatherings with loved ones!
