Brett’s Outdoor Favorites

Get ready to fire up the grill, pit or playlist for long weekends outside. Trading Spaces' expert carpenter Brett Tutor shared his warm-weather outdoor essentials for those who love entertaining al fresco.

Affordable and Stylish Outdoor Furniture

"Everyone knows that outdoor furniture needs to stand up to harsh weather, but that doesn't mean you have to compromise on style. I love the natural, tropical Acacia wood tone next to the grey cushions, and the price is hard to beat. There are many great types of wood to consider for outdoor living, but Acacia is naturally found in tropical climates and is a perfect, affordable and eco-friendly option given its rapid growth and abundance."

BUY IT: Wayfair, $264

Outdoor Daybed

"This is just plain cool. This is the kind of product that reminds us of how we are supposed to live life. Naps, reading and, for me, devoting a little time in your schedule to absolutely nothing. We all deserve an outdoor daybed in our lives."

BUY IT: Wayfair, $455

Outdoor Rug

"I have made the mistake of using an indoor rug on my outdoor patio and it can get nasty, trust me. I used to think outdoor rugs all looked cheap and plain but, as you can see here, you don't have to compromise on style."

BUY IT: Wayfair, $74

Outdoor Lighting

"I take outdoor lighting pretty seriously. I love to entertain and dine outside as often as possible and lighting can really set the mood. It can give your outdoor space a magical feel."

BUY IT: Wayfair, $22

Outdoor Movie Screen

"Outdoor. Movie. Screen. What else needs to be said?"

BUY IT: Wayfair, $196

Outdoor Sonos Wireless Sound System

"Music is a huge part of my life. I need it everywhere I go and these new wireless systems are really cool. Create your perfect playlist and let it set the mood, indoors and outdoors, without having to interrupt the moment by changing the music or speaker systems."

BUY IT: Sonos, $1398

Outdoor Flat Screen TV

"Why not? Movies, football games, everything is simply better outdoors."

BUY IT: Best Buy, $3,500

Outdoor Dining Table

"I have an emotional connection to outdoor dining. Community and family are important and having an amazing outdoor dining table to gather all of your loved ones is so special."

BUY IT: Wayfair, $980

Fire Pit

"Who doesn't love a fire pit? Cold nights, smores, romantic evenings and entertaining. This is definitely an item you won’t regret having."

BUY IT: Wayfair, $358


"Don't even get me started here. Being a Texan, I won't compromise on my grill. I love these eggs and I even have the mini egg to use when I am living out of my airstream trailer while on the road."

BUY IT: Big Green Egg, $1,999
