Summer is pumping through South Africa at the moment with the hot months calling for afternoons outside in the sunshine with the smell of braai along with the sound of friends and families enjoying themselves. This is the best time to watch the kids playing in the garden, catch up with your favourite people in the fresh air and host social engagements with much more space available thanks to the exterior areas.

This is why today at homify, we have put together 14 summer braais that will inspire and delight you as you consider how to have the perfect summer with a delicious cooking element that also enhances the design of your garden.

You'll never use your indoor kitchen again!

1. Rustic meets functional

This rustic design is the perfect element for the garden, bringing a very natural and earthy twist to a braai design.

2. An outdoor kitchen

Create a covered outdoor braai area with a dining area and you'll have a whole new space for entertaining and enjoying that freshly braaied food!

3. Go for unique and modern designs

Nothing quite says modern and minimalist than a braai that is suspended from the ceiling.

4. Traditional meets unique

Store all of the wood for your braai like design professionals Raddi Architects have done here. This look and feel packs quite a punch.

5. Have everything that you need

If you have the garden space, build a braai that features everything you could possibly need and you'll never have to go back inside.

6. The stand-alone braai

This option is easy to move around while still having shelves for condiments and braai tools.

7. A focal point

Your braai should be a place that friends and family gather around, which is why this design is so on point.

8. Go for a theme

10. Take it anywhere
