Outdoor spaces should follow all the same design rules as indoor rooms, and that means that the best ones are filled with outdoor accessories. Fortunately, we offer accessories for everything from sunrooms to gardens and today, I compiled a list of our favorites. Which of these are you going to bring into your outdoor space?
1. Oakland Living 20-Gallon Patio Cooler
If you love outdoor entertaining, the 20-Gallon Patio Cooler is a must. Just fill it with ice and stock it with your favorite beverages. Your guests will be able to help themselves and because it is so big, you won’t be constantly restocking it. Best of all, there is a bottle opener conveniently placed right on the side of the cooler. This is definitely a football party must.
2. Oakland Living Mississippi Tubular Iron Garden Fence
Every garden needs a little bit of hardscaping to let the flowers shine. These beautiful garden fences come in a package of two and can be used as a border items or as a support for a climbing plant.
3. Shine Round Cedar Barrels
These barrels are one of my personal favorites because of their beauty and versatility. These barrels come in a set of four and can be used as planters, storage, tables, and so much more. Keep your extra pillows and blankets tucked inside or top one off with a round glass tabletop. You could even flip one upside down and top it with a cushion to transform it into an ottoman. How are you going to use your four?
4. Uwharrie Veranda Serving Island
The Uwharrie Veranda Serving Island is a perfect addition to a kitchen, sunroom, or lanai. This serving cart can be used time and time again. Set it up with a buffet of snacks during a party, use it as a coffee bar, complete with a Keurig, or transform it into a potting table. The intricate detailing and cream color blend in perfectly with a country or traditional decor theme.
5. Cedar Delite 3-Panel Folding Screen
Conceal an unsightly air conditioning unit, add height to a garden, or give your climbing plants a sturdy support with the help of this folding screen. They can also be placed on a deck or patio to define a border or add much-needed privacy.
6. Oakland Living Cast Iron Birdfeeder
Birdfeeders don’t have to be plastic and unsightly. Oakland Living has proven just that with their line of cast iron bird feeders. Just fill them with seed and watch as the birds come to call your yard home.
7. Oakland Living Gazing Ball and Stand
Add color and shine to your yard in just minutes. This cast iron stand supports a beautiful blue gazing ball. It would be a beautiful addition to either your front yard or your back yard.
8. Cedar Delite Cedar Deck Tiles
Cedar is a beautiful outdoor hardwood and it has never looked better than it does with these deck tiles. Use just a few of them as a welcome mat or add a bunch more to completely cover an unsightly concrete slab of a patio. If you are feeling particularly creative, you could even adhere them to a wall to add some three-dimensional interest.
9. Oakland Living Rochester Tilt Umbrella
There is no better way to beat the summer heat than with a strategically placed tilt umbrella. This umbrella can be used in an umbrella stand or in the center of a dining table to cast some much-needed shade.
10. Well Traveled Living Fire Pit
I know that the winter is technically over but it is still a great time to purchase a fire pit. Nights can still get chilly and a fire pit is the perfect way to warm things back up.
I hope that our list has inspired you to spruce up your deck or patio for the warm-weather season ahead. Feel free to let us know your favorite ways to use these items.
