Exhibitor Focus: FIREBOKS®️ – Things to consider when looking into outdoor dining
In this article we hear from one of our exhibitors: FIREBOKS®️. They supply high quality, durable and aesthetically pleasing Braais and accessories. They’re also the proud distributor of the HOME FIRES range of Braai’s in Ireland and the UK.
At FIREBOKS®️ we believe that a Braai should be a social event and not just an eating event (barbecue). It should also not be restricted by the weather or time of year. If you have the right setting and equipment, every day is Braai Day! A bbq area can become the focal point of social gatherings, providing a space for friends and family to come together, socialize, and enjoy each other’s company.
A dedicated Braai area can add entertainment value to your home, making it more appealing to guests and potential buyers if you ever decide to sell.
Cooking over an open flame or on a grill can provide a unique and enjoyable cooking experience, enhancing the taste and aroma of the food.
Installing a well-designed outdoor kitchen and Braai/BBQ area can increase the value of your property, making it a worthwhile investment.
In the UK and Ireland, where outdoor time may be limited due to weather, having an undercover Braai/BBQ area allows you to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle even during less favourable weather conditions.
Factors to consider when planning an outdoor kitchen and Braai/BBQ area:
Location: Choose a location that is easily accessible from your indoor kitchen and dining area to ensure convenience.
Ventilation: Adequate ventilation is essential to redirect smoke away from the entertaining area and keep the space comfortable.
Materials: Use weather-resistant and durable materials for the construction to withstand the elements.
Storage: Incorporate storage space for utensils, grill accessories, and other cooking essentials to keep the area tidy.
Seating and Comfort: Consider ample seating options and provide comfortable seating arrangements for guests.
Weather Protection: Install retractable awnings, pergolas, or covered roofs to protect the area from rain or excessive sunlight.
By carefully considering these factors, you can create a welcoming and functional outdoor kitchen and braai/bbq area that will add significant value to your home and enrich your social experiences.
