How to Dress Up Your Bali Hut

This summer you can have a holiday destination right in your very own backyard. Creating a haven for you and your family is lots of fun once you have purchased your Bali Hut and the outdoor gazebo has been installed. Now it is time to start thinking about design ideas, so read on to discover some simple ideas for how to dress up your Bali Hut.

White shade cloth curtains can add a very mediterranean look and feel to Bali Huts, making them that extra bit special to relax under and lounge in. Add some deck chairs, pillows and a nice cocktail to the mix and your backyard will quickly become your very own private resort.

A barbeque, weber or mini bar will make your Bali Hut very suave and professional and quickly turn it into a vibrant entertaining area for you and your guests. Brilliant for functions, home parties, festive occasions or even just to enjoy a cold beer or martini on a Saturday night… you will never have to leave home again.

An outdoor table with chairs is a must have if you are not thinking of having a lounge area (depending on the size you may even be able to fit both). Dressing up the outdoor setting with a simple Balinese bowl or some wooden sculptures can complement your new outdoor gazebo this summer.

Bali Huts can come with or without a decking area. The choice is yours and of course depends on price and what you plan to use your Balinese Hut for. The advantages of a decking area is that it can make your Bali Hut a real feature in your garden and is more comfortable to sit under than just installing on grass or dirt. Many customers prefer the decking for aesthetic reasons and like being elevated slightly when entertaining and chilling out during the summer and cooler months.

The Umbrella Thatch: A Cheaper Alternative to a Balinese Hut

The Umbrella Thatch creates a relaxed and tropical look and feel to your outdoor area. The umbrella thatch is a cheaper alternative to the Balinese hut, although made from the same natural material (alang-alang grass), because it is only on one post, the actual structure is more cost effective to make, therefore lessening the sale price. Umbrella thatches fit neatly into an outdoor table and are sturdy and reliable. They are easy to put and put down and keep your outdoor area cooler by up to 15 degrees compared to other roofs. This is because the alang alang grass acts like a natural insulator and regulates the flow of cool and warm air much better than say a corrugated roof or sail cloth.
