The freezing temperatures and shorter days of winter may seem like good excuses to stay indoors.
But, believe it or not, your outdoor space can be a great place to spend time during the winter. All you need is a bit of ingenuity and planning to embrace the cold and snow.
Try some of these tips to enjoy your outdoor living space this winter:
Enclose Your Patio Space
If your patio space isn’t already covered, the first step to creating a winterized outdoor space is to protect it from the elements. Investing in a gazebo or pergola will help keep snow off of your furniture and reduce the need for shovelling.
Create an Ambiance
Braving the cold may not seem like such a big deal when you dress your space with twinkling string lights, beautiful winter urns filled with birch and pine, and cosy throw blankets.
Add Some Heat
Take the bite out of the cold by adding a few heat sources to your patio. Hang heat lamps from an overhead structure or place floor heaters around at a safe distance from patio furniture. Propane fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, and fire tables provide warmth and instant ambiance!
Entice with Food
Take outdoor entertaining to a new level by investing in an outdoor pizza oven or smoker. You can even embrace your summer tradition of barbequing in the winter by positioning a heat source near your grill for a unique winter dining experience.
