Get Your Home Ready for BBQ Season

Make the most of National BBQ month by using this time of year as the perfect opportunity to get your home ready for a fun, food-filled BBQ season! Check out these important tips that will ensure that your home will be looking sharp and smelling wonderful all summer long.


Clean the Grill

One of the most essential aspects of a BBQ is a reliable grill. Before you start cooking up some delicious food, it’s vital to clean up and clean out the outdoor appliance. Start with the interior of the grill by deep cleaning the inside surfaces. A soapy sponge or rag should be enough to get the job done. Next, you can make your grill shine by polishing off the exterior. Again, a soapy towel will do, but make sure you avoid streaks by fully drying off the grill’s exterior.


Provide Ample Seating

Your home can be the go-to spot for BBQs no matter the size of your backyard. Including some strategic seating is key to making guests feel comfortable and encouraging them to return. A solid table and chairs set are a BBQ staple, and most come in a variety of styles. Depending on your objective, you can incorporate more trendy furniture and decor or you can opt for a DIY project that will show off your personal style and offer an enjoyable outdoor project.


Offer Shaded Options

Not every guest will enjoy spending the entire afternoon in the sun, so make sure you included shaded options. If you have a patio then you can simply move window coverings outdoors to shade guests and block the sun’s harsh rays. Those who seek more creative shading options can use sheets to tie together arrays of trees. This option is ideal for young children who prefer being outdoors and playing in the grass, but who should not be spending too much time in the sun.


Dress Up the Yard

While providing places for guests to sit and relax are necessary, the more enjoyable aspect of BBQ preparation may be adding your unique touch. Planting colorful flowers, trimming up hedges or planting trees are great outdoor projects that will bring a new life and energy to your BBQ. These outdoor features will not only offer lovely scenery for guests, but will also give you a chance to reveal your green thumb - or offer you a chance to develop one!


Make it an Event

BBQs are known for their yummy dishes and friendly attendees, which means they could easily turn into day-long experiences. Encourage your guests to spend the day at your BBQ by turning it into an event of its own. For example, investing in some fashionable lounge chairs can provide extra seating while also prompting guests to stick around for some additional time in the sun. Offering multiple options for guests outside of scrumptious food can keep them around longer.


Completing some necessary, initial preparation can turn your home into this summer’s BBQ destination. Once you have thoroughly cleaned, decorated and planned, you can be sure that everyone will by dying to attend each and every one of your BBQs.
