Even though winter is not officially here for another few months, you might already be looking towards ways that you can extend the period that you use your patio. If you want to use your outdoor areas during the winter months, we have a few ideas that you can use.
Add some heat
If you do not have a heat source, you simply do not have a winter-friendly outdoor space. Not only should this keep you comfortable outdoors, but it should also offer a great place to entertain guests as well. We see fire pits, outdoor fireplaces and more. These are great for not only being outside, but also entertaining friends. While there are expensive options available, there are more budget-friendly options such as the traditional fire pit
All the lights
One of the best things about being outdoor on your patio during the summer is being outdoors late at night. The sun does not set until 9 PM, so you have plenty of time to enjoy yourself. It being dark at 5 PM does not quite have the same appeal. However, during those dark winter nights lighting is key. You can also combine our first two tips and use heat lamps – which is going to light up your area while also warming it. You can use twinkle lights if you want something a bit more festive as well. Whatever your budget might be, there is always something available.
You want people to be comfortable, which is why warm accessories are great for finishing your winter patio design. Blankets are not only comfortable, but also look great. You can use throw pillows or floor pillows to create a chic, elegant look that does not skimp on comfort. Even your older furniture is going to look more appealing with new cushions.
We understand our customers want furniture that looks well designed, built to last without losing some of its appealing. You need to invest in furniture that can withstand the cold winter if you want your patio to be winter friendly. Quality patio furniture is going to last for years to come, compare that to the traditional, cheap alternatives that you are going to place on your curb in a year. Because we understand that our customers are looking to make long-term investments, we only stock high-quality furniture that is going to look great on your patio for years to come.
With the right changes and investments, you are able to create an outdoor environment where you are going to be happy to spend some of the colder days during the winter.
