Summer weather inspires most people to enjoy the outdoors and relax, and outdoor cooking areas are great for spending time with family and friends. These barbecue areas are likely to give a substantial boost to the overall value of your home; especially when you use a unique and eye-catching BBQ top.

Natural Materials to Increase the Value of your BBQ Space

An outdoor barbecue area often is a mini version of an outdoor kitchen; it includes a grill, a sink, some storage space and countertops.

The selection of natural materials we have available in our Design Hub store can also be used for these outdoor applications. That works very well if the design concept is also taken into account and adhered to. So in many cases it can be fun to bring the materials from the inside to the outside and vice versa and as a result have both areas in harmony.

It is always advisable to pay attention to consistency within the design when choosing the material for your barbecue top; whichever size it is. If it’s a small one, you can decide for a really fun and unique one, or have a barbecue that is inbuilt into the barbecue top structure.

It’s also possible to have a structure that encapsulates both the barbecue and the outdoor kitchen. All components used have to comply with outdoor conditions, they need to have durable surfaces that can withstand the rain and sun.

At Design Hub, we offer all the different services, starting from the structure, either the concrete shuttering or the plywood molding, depending on what you prefer. Then you can then clad it in these natural materials which are chosen according to the function and create the BBQ top you need. It can also be cut around the sinks or any other accessories you wish to have on the top. These types of barbecues which are fitted on the top have to be designed with the right considerations like appropriate height etc.

However, you can either use the set sizes we offer, this could be more cost effective for someone who still wants to have a natural finish consistency throughout, or you can order them as custom pieces to be placed by a marble layer.
