BS&R How To: Add Style to the Great Outdoors

BS&R How To: Add Style to the Great Outdoors

The “Must Haves” for Outdoors

Summer is finally upon us and for most of us that means spending more time relaxing and entertaining outside. In the past, we have written how important it is to create and plan your outdoor living spaces in advance of the Spring & Summer seasons. Let’s look at a few popular outdoor furniture pieces & features, and why they are perennial favorites.

The People’s Choice:

The most common must-have outdoor furniture piece in Bermuda is the Adirondack a.k.a. Muskoka chair. A high-back chair with wide arm rests and a comfortable recline perfect for lounging in your backyard, deck, or dock. The teak wood Adirondack chair is by far the most popular chair requested by our clients, and we know why!

Wooden pergolas can help to shade and cool an outdoor area, particularly if you integrate horticultural features. We have built several wooden pergolas for specific outdoor spaces, and recommend them for year-round usage in Bermuda.

It is also necessary to have an outdoor space that is organized and tidy. Storage areas can be separate or integrated into your furniture; the latter a popular choice for smaller outdoor spaces.

Regardless of the furniture or feature you decide to spend money on, the type of material is very important if you want to invest in a piece that will last beyond one season. Teak and Accoya wood products are recommended for custom built furniture, while off-the-shelf products should be made of marine-grade materials. Rain, sun, wind, bugs, pets, usage, etc. all affect your outdoor furniture, so keep these factors in mind when making a purchase.

Finally, what is a space without accessories? Accessories pull everything together to create a space that is truly yours. From tables and planters, to fences and kitchen islands; your imagination is the limit and we can build your ideas.

Take the time to consider all the possibilities and make sure you have those essential “must haves” in your outdoor spaces. Relax this spring in your own oasis, but get ready now to ensure you are prepared for Summer.
