Hot Tip for Keeping your Backyard COOL!


Extend your living space to your outdoor area with a Bali Hut or African Thatch, the coolest natural shade.  Thatched roofs are known to be approximately 10 degrees cooler and provide great shelter from the weather, be it the sun or a warm summer rain shower.  Our Australian Made, Bali inspired products are a great way to bring the holiday experience to your own backyard whilst turning your backyard down a few degrees.  

Cooling down seems to take up so much of my time lately.  I’m constantly thinking about how I can cool down and what time of day I should do what so as to take advantage of cooler periods.  A thatched roof in your backyard can free your mind and increase outdoor use.  Entertain under an Aaron Bali Hut or African Thatch or simply use it as lounging space.  The great thing about our thatch roof huts is that they are very flexible spaces.  You can make them what you want them to be with a simple change of furniture.
