Outdoor Accents is a line of decorative hardware featuring ornamental wood connectors and fasteners. These products bring both beauty and strength to outdoor living structures such as pergolas, pavilions, arbors, gazebos and patio covers. Learn how a New England custom home builder was introduced to Outdoor Accents by our Associate Territory Sales Manager Emily Holtshouser during a presentation about our decorative hardware solutions. This builder gave his personal home a unique twist by showcasing the Outdoor Accents products indoors rather than outdoors. He used our decorative hardware to add style and flair to the beam posts throughout his new house.
For his build, the homeowner chose to use the Outdoor Accents® APBDW Decorative Post Base Cover. The APBDW composite wrap features the arched profile of the Mission Collection® and provides a decorative finish that fits over most nominal 4×4 and 6×6 post bases.
He thought the black coloring of the post base cover complemented the wood he used for his home.
As for installation, the homeowner said that installing the APBDW was easy, as the screws and false nuts make the process much simpler than predrilling or through-bolting. Overall, he enjoyed the design of the APBDW and thought it looked great inside his home. We couldn’t agree more!
