Creating The Perfect Patio With Alexis Maucort, SCHEELS Furniture Manager
If you love hosting large backyard gatherings or need to finish off your backyard oasis, SCHEELS Home and Hardware is the perfect place to start. Living in the Fargo-Moorhead area means you understand how important it is to make the most out of the summer months and savor the warmer weather. If you enjoy spending time outside, your patio or deck likely becomes an extension of your home in the summer. Create a space where you can relax and entertain your friends or enjoy some alone time drinking your morning coffee.
SCHEELS Home and Hardware carries everything from beach-style Adirondack chairs and rockers, comfortable sofas and sectionals and functional outdoor dining sets. These styles are offered in a vast range of materials including poly lumber, aluminum frame and resin tops to get that natural driftwood aesthetic. A fun new style that emerged this year is mid-century modern. We are seeing examples of this in dining sets with black metal hairpin legs with a poly-lumbar top in a natural wood aesthetic finish to embrace this trend.
It is important to consider what style works in your outdoor living space and consider longevity. With a wide variety of brands, styles, materials and price points, we offer something for everyone. Consider asking yourself if you are looking for something you will replace in a few years or something more timeless—something you can add to your collection for years to come.
We carry many quality outdoor furniture brands, but one of our most popular is Berlin Gardens. In true Midwestern fashion, this furniture is made to withstand any tough weather conditions. For the hot summer days, all of the materials contain UV Fade Resistant Technology to help keep those colors vibrant and fresh. Plus, there is no need to worry about rusting with their stainless steel and chrome-plated hardware.
Creating the Perfect Living Room With Morgan Diehl May, Interior Designer
1. Initial Consultation
The goal is to meet with our customers in their home to establish their wants and needs, determine their style, and gain a better understanding of how their space will ideally function. Functionality creates purpose for the space and is the foundation of a home, so some important factors to consider are: Do they have pets or kids? Is this space for lounging, working, sleeping, eating, etc.? These factors help to determine what type of fabric we suggest for the furniture, the level of durability required to compliment their lifestyle, and what cushion options are available to meet their comfort levels. We also take measurements at the consultation to ensure that all furniture is proportionate to the room size and that there is adequate space to move around the furniture. We take the “Before” photos as a fun way to look back on the progress at the end of the project! Here are before pictures from a recent project we completed:
2. Concept Development
Once all of the information is gathered, we put together a design concept for the space. Paint and fabric swatches are pulled to represent color schemes, digital concept boards are made, as well as furniture plans, to help visualize how the furniture will fit in the space. At this step we can give a rough estimate of the overall cost of the project.
We present the design concept to the customer and, once approved, we make a plan for execution! Whether the plan is to complete the project all at once, or done in phases, we work at the customer’s pace.
4. Final Design Development
After deciding on the concept and choosing custom elements, like furniture and window treatments, the timeline can be determined. For this project, we decided on custom bench cushions for the customer’s reading nook, the fabric was ordered and we worked with a local seamstress on the design and execution. We also ordered all of the furniture, rugs, lighting and the wallpaper for the accent wall.
Once the walls are painted, the wallpaper is installed and the furniture is delivered, I complete the install and stage the beautiful new space for the customer to enjoy
