If you think back to your own childhood, do any memories involve rocking away the hours on a favorite outdoor swing set? Chances are, some of them do! Whether you’ve always dreamed of providing a similar experience for your own children, or are merely brainstorming additional healthy and safe options to keep your kids active during the summer months, Olde Sale Barn’s experienced staff has the perfect outdoor space option for you and your family.
What’s more? You can look forward to additional days and weeks of fun making your new outdoor addition your own by personalizing it with unique decorations and add-ons. After all, a garden shed can double as a she shed or man cave for the remainder of the warm weather.
Or, perhaps you’d like for the kids’ playset to experience a one-of-a-kind makeover that is sure to convince them that they have been transported to another world! Read on for ideas about which product and décor options are the best for your budget.
Deciding on Your Summer Addition
Outdoor furniture or your next Monarch Bar Set? Who says a smaller budget has to limit the amount of fun you can have? Take one of these options, which add height and function to any outdoor living area. You can easily pair items from quality second-hand or farmer’s market steals (think: potted plants, waterproof curtains and antique odds and ends to add flair!) as the summer progresses. Come fall, your space is sure to have a homey, relaxed vibe.
Storage Shed…or She Shed/Man Cave?
One attractive option for those “in the middle” in terms of budget is our line of Amish-made Dutch barns and Quaker sheds. Either selection is ideal for a seasonal or year-round conversion to a man cave for him, or a homey outdoor escape for her (think: she shed!). You can use existing items from your home office, den, or living area to overflow into an outdoor version, or incorporate beachy themes for a quick escape to enjoy a coastal feel.
Playset…or an Adventure Zone?
Bring to life a whole new world for your kids with one of our playsets, whether they’re fully remote and at home, or looking for ways to breathe new life into evening and weekend routines.
This is a great choice if you have some extra savings to invest in enhancing your outdoor play area. Our Space Shuttle Series is sure to blow young mind’s away, with the possibility of your child customizing their space experience with fun mini-roof-covered sections. On nice evenings, there’s plenty of room for sleepovers under the stars (with parental supervision, of course!).
Considering Your Canvas: How Big is the Outdoor Space You are Working With?
There’s also nothing wrong with choosing a timeless type of deck railing, such as a wooden option. This is the most commonly sought railing for a reason; as it is able to make a wide variety of homes look their best with a simple improvement. Another added bonus with respect to using this as a means to express your personal style preferences is the ability to dream, develop, sketch and modify your own patterns and designs into ornate masterpieces!
Here are Olde Sale Barn products we recommend based on the relative size of your outdoor space:
- Small Yard (6,500 square feet and below) – Consider getting or upgrading your existing lawn furniture this summer, and focus on redesigning your outdoor space for transitioning into the fall.
- Medium Yard (10,000-12,000 square feet) – In addition to chairs, a new covered patio table or matching outdoor dining set, you may want to consider enhancing your outdoor space with a children’s swing set. Not only do our authentic Amish options enhance the aesthetic and value of your property, but play spaces are sure to add hours of fun to you and your family’s summer break.
- Large Yard (25,000 square feet and beyond) – If a lack of ample space isn’t a factor, think about purchasing one of our high-quality outdoor storage sheds! Perfect for storing additional tools, children’s items and accessories, or gardening gear, you can also convert sheds into man caves or she sheds if the desire strikes.
Regardless of whether you and your family set your heart on one of The Olde Sale Barn’s playsets, sheds or furniture sets, we can help find the right selection for your needs.
