Here at CoolTown Beta we are always looking for sustainable ways to enhance our lifestyles through better building practices.
Think back to your most exotic tropical vacation. The smell of the air, the relaxation, and digging your toes in the sand probably all made you fall in love with the tropics.
No resort is complete without the Bali Hut. A Bali Hut usually houses a bar and is one of the most popular hangouts on the beaches. While you cannot bring the sandy beaches of your vacation to your backyard, you can bring a Bali Hut to your home. Best of all, bali hut kits, are topped with sustainable thatched roofing.
As many people build treehouses for their kids, you will be enjoying your own type of adult tropical getaway right in your backyard.
Great ways to get the tropical feel at home:
Bali Huts are an incredible way to remind you to slow down and enjoy life. Even if you don’t have much in the way of landscaping for your backyard, there are some simple ways to make your Bali Hut look perfectly at home in your backyard.
- Once you decide where your Bali Hut will go, start planting some foliage and tropical looking plants. You can add a small pond or water feature by your Bali Hut.
- Look for larger sculptures made of resin, wood, stone, marble or metal and put them on either side of the entrance.
- You will add more comfort and ambiance to your backyard by adding some lighting and comfortable furniture to your Bali Hut.
- You can hang a hammock in your hut. Hammocks range from inexpensive simple designs to extremely soft, plush and expensive. You can relax while swaying gently in your hammock with a good book and a cold drink in hand.
Your social life will immediately improve once word gets out that you have a Bali Hut. People are drawn to them and your friends will be no different. You can throw dining parties or cocktail parties all in your Bali Hut.
You can move a large television or even a projector into your Bali Hut and have a night out at the movies. Your friends will love you for it.
To make your Bali Hut more meaningful to you, what was most important to you while in the tropics?
Recreate the things that you remember. If it was beach type décor, you can decorate your hut with anything that says beach to you. Use blues, greens, grays and white colors in your hut.
Set up an awesome speaker system and pipe your favorite reggae bands or tropical inspired music.
Search the internet and Pinterest for ideas that inspire you. Write down everything that you see that you like. Keep a list. After a week, go back and look at the ideas to decide what you can incorporate in your yard.
Whatever you decide to use to make your Bali Hut tropical will be perfect and personalized for you. You can’t go wrong!
