Styles to Consider when designing your Braai Area at Home
We’ve made it through winter and gorgeous braai weather is on its way. If you’re deciding on your next DIY project – now may be a great time to consider adding an outdoor kitchen or braai area to your home.
We’ve put together some popular outdoor braai & entertainment design-styles to consider:
THE CONTEMPORARY LIVING OUTDOOR KITCHEN
A neat and modern outdoor kitchen and braai area alongside your garden or pool offers an ideal entertainment space to enjoy the outdoors in our warmer months. Ultimate Outdoor Kitchen accessories can include: A smoker, Pizza Oven, Outdoor TV, Sink and Prep Area, and a Fire Pit.
URBAN CITY STYLE
In the below kitchen design, modular kitchen configurations perfectly suit this city garden, where space is usually limited. Storage and multifunctionality are key priorities to consider in your design.
INDOOR BRAAI ROOM
What makes indoor braai room popular, even essential to many? Picture this: You have planned a get together, shopped for your braai meats, some salads & sides are already prepared. But you wake up to bad weather. These are the times you will love your indoor braai room – which can be enjoyed all year round no matter the weather!
THE SOUTH AFRICAN LAPA
Lapa’s are a popular choice for adding an extra living outdoor area to your home. Thatch covering gives great insulation and so remains cool in summer but warm in winter, and can range in design from a standard rustic Lapa to luxuriously finished room.
SMALL STOEP BRAAI
The original purpose of a stoep was to provide a shade and being raised on a platform, to protect the home from flooding. A popular choice for stoep braais is the gas braai because of how compact and easy to clean they are. Alternatively a build in brick braai with chimney looks great, and if you’re handy with DIY, you can build it yourself!
