Saddle Seat Stool
Saddle stools are decorative, practical, and don’t take up a lot of space. If the kitchen is large enough, a new stool can be a nice addition to give guests a spot to sit and chat while you prepare appetizers or a meal.
These cottage classics come in many styles. Whether for the deck or dock, they are more than just required cottage items, they are also practical, durable, and won’t blow over every time there is a gust of wind.
Outdoor Chairs and Bistro Table
A set of outdoor chairs and bistro table are great for the cottage deck, dock, or in the gazebo.
Made By You
It is easy to make bad furniture decisions when it comes to the cottage. Don’t allow nostalgia for an old piece of furniture at the house to get in the way of good logic.
If you are upgrading your furniture in the city consider donating the old chair, sofa, or table to charity instead of automatically dragging it all the way out to the cottage. If the item has been in the family for generations and is really important, then by all means, take it to the lake. If not, it is best that you and the old sofa part ways. Your back will definitely thank you for it.
Evaluate The Furniture Inventory
At the end of each cottage season, take a hard look at all the indoor and outdoor furniture that is clogging up the cottage, gazebo, and storage shed. Anything that didn’t get used in the last two years should go. Unused furniture takes up valuable space and provides year round lodging for mice and spiders.
