Outdoor Living Company Announces Renewed Focus on Efficiency for Contractors with Product Design
ATLANTA, October 18, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Belgard®, the leader in outdoor living essentials for the patio and beyond, will share its newest outdoor design program, Belgard Rooms, at Hardscape North America, taking place October 20 – 22, 2021 in Louisville, Kentucky. Belgard Rooms launched earlier this year, delivering templated outdoor design plans for contractors and consumers alike. The interactive experience allows homeowners and contractors to effortlessly pair the style of their home with hardscaping products that match and complement the exterior of the home.
"Belgard Rooms offers a new approach to outdoor living, focusing on templated designs and how shape, color, and texture work together, to make the design process easier," says Joe Raboine, Director of Residential Hardscapes, Belgard. "Simplicity and efficiency are the drivers behind Belgard Rooms. Once a client has narrowed down their Rooms selections, not only will the contractor understand their style and budget better, but the contractor can choose to flip that content to our Belgard Design Studio to have a semi-custom plan made tailored to that content."
With the increased popularity and demand for outdoor living products, Belgard is focused on simplicity, efficiency and modularity for its products and services – all designed to support the contractor and make them more efficient, which in turn, helps them grow their business.
Belgard envisions modular design as the next iteration of hardscape product design. This approach makes it easier for contractors to mix, match and install Belgard’s wide range of products together, delivering precisely what the client is looking for, without adding labor or costs. This is the first step in laying the groundwork for paver product development for the next few decades, as all of Belgard’s products will fit within this modular format. In addition, modularity allows for more design flexibility, as the various patterns and shapes can be used to customize designs.
The booth will feature five distinct Rooms – an outdoor garden room, dining room, kitchen and two living room layouts – showcasing the individuality of each space and how they come together to create a cohesive outdoor living plan. Contractors can view a breakdown of new products featured in each room, as well as details on how to create these projects.
In addition, Belgard will feature new products:
Origins™ – 3-piece system with a natural slate texture, compatible with other Origins pavers and Dimensions™ paver line
Dimensions – 3-piece system with a smooth, contemporary texture, compatible with other Dimensions pavers and Origins paver line
Artforms – the industry’s first complete modular concrete panel system, which can be used for a variety of applications such as barbecues, benches and planters
Elements Product Collection – a collection of stainless appliances and fixtures including cooking, storage, bar and sink accessory features that make outdoor living areas feel complete
Press will have the opportunity to hear from Belgard leadership during a press conference on Wednesday, October 20, at 2 p.m. at Booth #20040. During this time, Belgard experts will share upcoming trends in hardscaping, feature the latest product styles and program initiatives for contractors.
