Fire Up the Grill for the Fourth! Ideas for Your Whole Home Remodel or New Home

The July 4th weekend is here and it’s time to invite friends and family over for traditional favorites on the grill! Here are some of the options to consider when designing outdoor living space for your new home or whole home remodel.

Inspired Space Planning
Your home should be designed with an easy navigation between the outdoor area and indoor area. A professional designer can help you determine how the grilling area should relate to seating and sunbathing areas or a pool. Durable countertops and ground covering that will stand up to the elements are also essential for your outdoor space.

The Perfect Grill
There are hundreds of grills to choose from, including wood, gas, charcoal or hybrid versions. The type of grilling method you choose is both personal and practical. For this outdoor area with a pool where the clients frequently entertain large groups, the design includes two grills along with several high-end accessories. Your space should reflect your lifestyle and how you plan to use your outdoor living space most often.

Safety First
Safety is essential when it comes to deciding where your grill will fit into the scheme of your outdoor area. You may also want to consider protection from the weather – long periods of sun or a little rain – with a louvered roof or patio cover.

Working with a unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals, you can make fireworks with an exciting outdoor living design that integrates a grill.
