With the sun finally coming out you might be thinking another angle for your backyard oasis—an umbrella. Not only will it protect your belongings, but also your people. With the awareness of potential issues from sun exposure expanding, you should give people a comfortable area out of the sun to gather if they should choose this.
One of my absolute fav umbrellas is the Tiki Thatch Canopy from Galtech International—available from Rich’s for the Home. Talk about adding a great tropical flavor to your outdoor room! A Tiki Thatch will pull it all together for a look meant for paradise and is now also available in bamboo. Canopies are available in natural (light) and java (dark) colors. Some models include LED lights and temperature gauges.
Pair your Tiki Thatch Canopy with bamboo mats, baskets, river rock pieces, earthy ceramic pieces and/or a water feature with water plants. They match a variety of furniture types including woods and wicker. And they compliment many bright accessories, tropical plants and ornamental grasses.
Finally—be prepared for the “Ahhh” factor when you and your guests enter your tropical paradise—and stay awhile.
