Deck season is almost here again, and just as I pour through gift ideas at Christmas for loved ones, I'm always on the search for new decking products, or things to use as accessories with your deck, and to amp your yard. Some of the products you may have already seen before, and see a need....maybe for myself, but think you'll like them as well.
1. TheMetalPeddler.com does absolutely phenomenal copper work! Their work has been featured in various interior design/remodel magazines, especially for their range hoods in the kitchen. They also make a beautiful hood for outdoor grilling/cooking areas, as you see below. Additionally, they offer copper post caps for your deck or front porch, copper mailboxes, house numbers, and other items that I loved. Check out their website to view all of the products, and work. themetalpeddler.com owns the photos below.
2. Don't you hate to see your husband or dad struggle to get his tired, relaxed self off of the patio furniture and drag himself in the house to get another cold drink? His problem is solved right here. Get him the rolling deck cooler....this particular one is called the BHP Rolling Deck Cooler, and can be found on ebay.com
3. Maybe I should catch a red-eye flight to Vegas because I'm loving the glow of these next two products. Glow stones and glow concrete offer a nice visual outside at nightfall, plus help you find your way. The stones glow from solar power, and the concrete is a unique application that is done by Frank Builders Concrete Inc. here in Cincinnati. Check out http://www.frankbci.com/. The solar glow stones can be found at http://paverlightdepot.com/gallery/
4. With more and more homes being built so close together, the more need for privacy products arise. Acurio Lattice is still my favorite go to supplier for unique lattice, and privacy panels. You can also find some of their products at homedepot.com, but to see all of the products, and their custom work check here http://acuriolattice.com/
5. These last few items are just odds and ends that I thought were cool. If you'd like more information on any of these products, please call or email at anytime!
