What’s the first thing that comes to mind when summer is on the horizon? A simple answer to this may be sunshine, but perhaps more important to consider is the many ways we plan to take advantage of the outdoors’ natural light. Whatever the plans, lasting memories are always made better surrounded by the ones you love most. With that in mind, making the most of your summer preparation should include décor and accessories that cater to those gatherings.
Despite the general warm weather at this time of year, summer vibes can differ depending on where you’re located. Unique weather conditions, location-specific traditions – no matter where you are, there’s a BCP item that’s useful for it all.
There are plenty of ways to get on track for an unforgettable summer. Check out these tips on how to start your summer off right:
Summer in the South
Weather can be unpredictable in southern states, experiencing sunshine and summer storms depending on mother nature. However, their residents have used BCP’s extensive outdoor catalog to make the most of it. Due to these types of weather conditions, pool cages are common in this region, allowing for days by the pool in the summer and year-round. For the indoor/outdoor lifestyle, there are countless ways to enhance your setup.
- Add style and shade with a functional patio umbrella
- Foster relaxation with a comfortable outdoor lounge chair
- Create an inviting environment with an open rope wicker set
Take the North for What it’s Worth
Summers in the north are often described as less glamourous than those of counterpart regions. Subject to extreme conditions like heat waves, ice storms, hurricanes, and more (usually more in the northeast), this region likely causes its residents to stay indoors a little more commonly than your average west coaster. But on the days you spend inside, you don’t have to feel like you’re missing out. Toys, games, and new activities can provide every bit of fun you thought you were missing.
- A 10-in-1 combo game table can spark new competition each day of the week, and then some
- Set up a portable ping pong table in any room, at any time
- Let the kids play pretend kitchen while you cook up a new recipe in the real one
The Best for the West
One reason many claim the west coast is the best coast is the weather! Sure, summers may be hot, but as they say – nothing new under the sun. We all know the west and outdoor living go hand in hand. The only thing in question is how you and your loved ones plan to take advantage of it all! With its roots being in sunny Southern California, BCP has a few suggestions.
- Stay shaded under a classic or upgraded patio umbrella
- Hang with a friend on an outdoor bench… literally
- Add the perfect outdoor lounge furniture to keep guests comfortable
Last but Not Least… the East
The visual appeal of eastern states like New York and Rhode Island is often displayed through stylish décor, among other things. Summer vibes shine through in an artistic manner that make it clear where you are. Creating an outdoor scenery that grabs the attention of all who occupy it can be a challenge, as there’s a difference between imagining the perfect setup and bringing it to life. But at BCP, we’re all about lending a helping hand. Try this for that elusive eastern style:
- Lounge in a classic set of Adirondack chairs – great for home and corporate settings
- Enjoy coffee or lunch with a friend or loved one on an intimate bistro set for two
- Adorn your outdoor setup with a patio loveseat for a style that never misses
In case you couldn’t tell by now, BCP has something to offer no matter where you’re located; and there’s so much more where that came from. Check out all our options to help create your ideal summer!
