Anyone can have the perfect patio during the spring and summer months, but most homeowners decide against using their patio during the colder winter months. What is the use of a patio if you cannot take a dip in your pool or have a backyard party?
Even when the weather is not great and it feels slightly too cold to be outdoors, you can still enjoy your patio. We have a few different ways to help you do just that.
If you want to make the most of your patio in winter, accent walls can help you. Not only are these accent walls going to protect your area against the harsher winds, but it also add texture and color to your backyard. It is a great way to spruce and divide your patio.
Make Your Patio A Gathering Spot
When the weather gets colder, it is a great idea to huddle together and stay warm. If you have a fire pit and gather some lounge chairs around it, you are going to have everything you need to survive a chilly evening with friends. The feeling of togetherness and comfort makes you feel even better.
The Rustic Patio/Fireplace Combination
If your patio offers warmth and shelter with carefully placed stone and a fireplace, you have a great place to gather and a great place to keep warm. A fireplace is not just something that you will use for the winter months, but can easily keep you warm during the summer nights as well as the weather cools off.
Add Some Color
What makes your patio such a great place to hang out during the summer? Of course it is great to lounge outdoors and be amongst friends, but the colors of the trees, flowers, and bushes make your patio seem more vibrant, more alive. By using cheerful and warm colors to surround your patio you can recreate this feeling throughout the year.
Add Some Drapes
How can you make your outdoor area feel more like an extension of your indoors? By adding a few drapes to your outdoor space. Go for some darker shades and use heavy curtains – these are perfect for the summertime (because they can help soak up the sunlight) but can also protect you against the colder breeze. Make sure that you combine the shades with a few dark accents and go for the perfect combination of design and aesthetics.
