When summer rolls around, everything seems brighter and more exciting. Spending time in nature and sunshine lights up those mini moments in our day-to-day lives that we look back on and cherish. Life is about celebrating special moments, big and small.
This summer, POLYWOOD and Belgard want to help you soak up the mini moments you share with family and friends, and there’s no better place for these than the backyard. Spending time outside is our favorite way of deepening your appreciation for nature, clear your mind of stress, and enjoy every moment of your day. We’re here to help make your backyard an oasis that accommodates every mini moment – from morning coffee on the deck to an evening of s’mores by the fire pit.
Design for every day
Belgard Rooms is a helpful tool that makes the design planning process more accessible by allowing you to identify inspirational options that fit your style and the features that make your outdoor space perfect. Think about how you and your family spend the day and what upgrades could be made to boost the functionality of the outdoor space, so you’re encouraged to use it more.
With Belgard Rooms, you can select various augmented reality plans and drop them into your own yard to view, walk through and scale different outdoor rooms. Find the style that best fits and start playing with different features – like including built-in seating areas on your deck or patio where you can start your day with a cup of coffee or encourage intimate gatherings with loved ones. Another excellent backyard addition is a fire pit, which serves as a place for guests and family members to gather for fireside chats and delicious marshmallows.
If you want to go all out, you can design a complete outdoor kitchen to host friends and family outdoors. Popular features include creating an entire cooking area with options like bar seating, a wine cooler, a grill/smoker, and a pizza oven for just about any kind of get-together you could want.
None of these spaces would be complete without stylish POLYWOOD Adirondack chairs for more seating around the fire and to elevate your backyard experience.
