Customized Site Furniture Solutions: How to Tailor Site Furnishings to Fit Your Space

As a manufacturer that specializes in crafting customized site furnishings, Keystone Ridge Designs understands the pivotal role that customization plays in creating outdoor spaces that stand out. While our diverse collection of standard designs certainly meets the furnishing requirements of many projects, the magic lies in tailored designs that seamlessly integrate with specific environments, amplifying their functionality, aesthetics, and overall appeal.

Customizing site furnishings to fit specific environments involves a meticulous process that combines innovation, design expertise, and a deep understanding of the surroundings. Here we delve into the process behind collaborating on customized landscape solutions.

Understanding the Environment

The first step in considering custom site furnishings is for the client to know and convey to our team a thorough understanding of the environment the furnishings will inhabit. This involves:

  • Assessing the Space - Understanding the layout, topography, and dimensions of the space.
  • Environmental Factors - Considering weather conditions, natural elements, and usage patterns.

Define Goals

Once there is a full understanding of the space, you can define goals and determine the unique needs of your property and the people who will be using it. 

  • Functionality - How will the furnishings serve specific functions relevant to the space? How much seating do you need? Do you want products to be fixed or movable? Will tables be needed? Do you need products with multi-functionality?
  • Unique Needs – This is where you consider modifications that address any challenges or usage opportunities for the space. For example, create adaptations for children or ADA accessibility, design unique ways to maximize seating in a small space, or consider ideas that create separation or privacy.
  • Harmonize with Surroundings - Ensure that the design complements the landscape, architecture, and existing thematic elements. This is where color, materials, style, and branding imagery come into play. It may also involve custom curves, angles, and configurations to align with existing walls, pavers, or structures.

Collaborative Approach

When a clear vision of intended usage and visual design is defined, then we can start the collaborative site furniture design process. This entails:

  • Client Input - Incorporating client preferences and vision into the design process.
  • Renderings - Product drawings and mock-ups from our in-house designers.
  • Feedback Loop - Iterative discussions to refine designs and ensure alignment with expectations.
  • Approvals – sign-off and approvals of proposed designs.
