It’s time to get ready for a sizzling summer outdoors and make the most of your space. Here we bring you some styling tips for a killer outdoor area with a quality braai from On Fire!

Bring the comfort factor outside

Summer holidays are all about relaxation. If you’re planning a get-together at your home, ensure that you up the comfort factor of your outdoor space. Add functional outdoor furniture to your garden or patio to encourage lounging. A relaxed outdoor space calls for comfy outdoor seating, a table, decor and more around the main attraction – a fireplace or braai for those memorable meals together!

Styling tip: Remember to incorporate outdoor lighting to illuminate your space. This will set the mood and also keep your space well lit on those balmy summer evenings outdoors. A simple set of string lights can add a magical feel.

Extend your interior style outdoors

Create an outdoor living area that is an extension of your home and style. Continue the look of your interior outdoors for a seamless flow between zones. Not only will this help create a zone that is perfect for summer entertainment, but it will also increase the value and floor space of your entire residence.

Styling tip: Choose materials like outdoor tiles or decking to create a patio or outdoor dining space that connects to your living area. This is a wonderful way to enjoy the moderate summer temperatures outside and also create a seamless indoor-outdoor living room.


Make mealtimes a feast for the senses

Outdoor dining is the perfect addition to your home. Whether you invest in a fully equipped outdoor kitchen or create an outdoor zone to braai, gather and enjoy alfresco meals together. Summer is about fun in the sun and when we add a quality braai area to this setting, you’re instantly upping the appeal of your space.
