RELATED TO THE PERFECT BRAAI AREA: 5 Ideas for a beautiful braai area
1. Plant herbs
Add interest by planting fragrant herbs next to the braai area. We especially love orange-scented thyme for its delicate, pale pinkish-white flowers in summer.
2. Be practical
No matter how beautiful a braai area, it has to be practical as well. It’s always a good idea to include a work surface on either side of the braai. This will provide plenty of space to prep food and store utensils.
3. Have braai tools and utensils at hand
Avoid running up and down by storing all your braai tools and utensils you need in one handy place, like this nifty braai trolley.
4. Find your style
Make sure your braai area is not separate from the rest of your home. It can easily become an extension of your living area, kitchen or patio if you decorate and style it properly.
5. Buy the best
Make sure you invest in only the best braai products, from grills and utensils to spices and cookbooks, here are some of our must-haves.
