Light materials like rattan, bamboo, or wicker usually come to mind when you think of the tropics, but some designs include heavier wood elements as well. Teak is a rich wood that is often associated with the tropics because teak trees come from southeast Asia, which is covered in tropical rainforests.
Darker wood tones like mahogany are also used in tropical kitchen designs because it is also an exotic wood because it’s found in Mexico to South America. Mahogany and teak are good choices because they are hardwoods and extremely durable so that they will stand the test of time.
Despite technically being a grass, Bamboo is also a great choice as it not only durable, but it is more sustainable than exotic hardwoods. Bamboo is easy to grow and is found in many regions of the world, including Asia and other tropical locales.
