They come in all shapes and sizes, and no we aren't talking about budgie smugglers on Bondi Beach. Designing the perfect BBQ / outdoor kitchen can be challenging so we are sharing our top secret tips for outdoor entertaining this summer.

Durability. Consider the position and usage of the BBQ and choose it’s materiality to match. It is important to select a bench top that can tolerate grease, grime and weather. Concrete is a great material and a popular option at the moment, but make sure to select the right sealer for it’s longevity and ease of cleaning.

Simplicity. Consider how close is the BBQ to the kitchen. This will help you decide on what is a necessity to include, a BBQ unit and bench space may be everything you need. This process becomes cost effective and maximises usable backyard space as it wont be taken up with sinks, fridges and storage. Remember, Keep it simple. 

Space. Give yourself room to socialise, provision for people to sit and chat is always a lot more enjoyable when the chef can be apart of the action. This will also allow for the meal of the day to be cooked to perfection.
