Dwell on Design: Everything Outdoors

Outdoor spaces are a source of pride for many homeowners. Whether you’re working on a small patio or acres upon acres of open land, spending time making your outdoors area “beautiful” is both therapeutic for your soul and great for the overall aesthetics of your property.

If you’re looking to spruce up your outdoor space, particularly a garden area or your landscaping, then you’re in good company. Homeowners are spending more money every year on landscaping, including growing and mowing grass, installing and maintaining sprinklers, adding trees and other plants, and installing fences and other outdoor structures.

House Tipster is thrilled to attend Dwell on Design and talk to some of the most trusted, trendiest outdoor-focused companies in the industry in order to bring the latest and greatest innovations to you. These are just a handful of the many companies headed to the event.

Outdoor Building Materials

Since they’re exposed to the elements, the materials you use to build outdoors are oftentimes different from those you use indoors. After all, you want to avoid issues like mold and mildew at all costs.

We really love the sustainable wood offered by Humboldt Redwood. It’s the perfect material to build structures like pergolas and decks, while also resisting many types of pests. Aesthetics are important, especially when you’re using building materials that will be seen by your family and houseguests, which is why it’s definitely worth taking a look at Humboldt Redwood’s entire line of quality wood products.

Carpet and even some hardwoods may not be the best flooring option for your outdoor space, especially if you expect a lot of traffic. For a consistently cool-to-the-touch ground or wall cover, take a look at the ceramic, brick, and other tile options offered by the Los Angeles-based retailer,  ARTO. The collections sold at ARTO vary depending on your preferred tastes, from simple glazed brick to the elaborate designs of the Coachella line.

For fencing, look no further than DEACERO USA’s Designmaster Fence line. Made of 100% recycled steel, these fences are super-strong and include a non-toxic powder coating.  If you need a fence but are worried about health and environmental factors, this is a solid option to consider.

By focusing on a product’s quality, what it’s made of, and how it was sourced, you’ll ensure you’re getting the best materials for your outdoor space.

Aesthetic Touches

Don’t forget to also include a few special, little touches to truly make your space unique to you. Dwell on Design features many artists and designers, but these brands really stand out for their innovations and focus on modern design and materials.

Ahhh, the smell of a campfire. If you’re anything like me, then this scent evokes childhood memories. To relive the magic, try adding a modern fire pit from Spark Modern Fires. Our entire team at House Tipster is completely obsessed with the Outdoor Fire Cubes, which can fit virtually anywhere.

We can’t get enough of gardens and landscaping decorated with color and a touch of flair. Design Collaborations designed these super-trendy LED light poles to illuminate your walkways. Oh, and their hand-blown glass rain chains? We’re absolutely in love.

If simplicity is more your “thing”, consider concrete touches around your outdoor living space. Concrete is not only a versatile building material, it’s also considered eco-friendly and is useable to other products besides building. Settlewell creates unique yet simple concrete pots, perfect for your flowers, dwarf fruit trees, and more. These straight-sided pots are a nice take on the modern, clean lines found on many product lines at Dwell on Design.
