Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space Even in the Winter
Just because the winter is approaching doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to your outside home, there are many ways to still enjoy sitting outside in these colder months. Whether you are looking to enjoy the outdoors during the day or night don’t let a drop in temperature stop you from doing just that. Start by keeping everything closer, the living area, fire pits, accessories, grill, tables and chairs. Keeping everything a little closer during the colder months will keep you more likely to stay out there, if you have a large garden and have to leave your house and go down to the bottom of your yard every time you want to spark up the grill and then the fire pit and lounge chairs are way at the other side you may not go out as often. If you have children or an outdoor winter party you want to be close together letting the heat of the fire pit or grill keep you and your loved ones warm. Just be sure the grills and fire pits are at a safe distance away.
A few tricks to keeping warm while outdoors in the chilly winter weather is to add an outdoor enclosed canopy and space heaters. Adding pillows and throw blankets to your wooden lounge chairs and benches and staying close together. If the idea of a canopy is a no go due to space or weather adding a fire pit to the center of your gathering area will keep everyone cozy. And since it gets darker earlier adding light will help you stay out later, a fire pit will add light but if that wasn’t your first choice of warmth and you opted for a space heater maybe add candles or twinkle lights. Twinkle lights just make me think of winter, you can get them everywhere at this time of year and made for outdoors since so many people decorate their outside home and trees with them for the holidays, you should have no problem keeping your outdoor room lit up.
If you have a patio from the house maybe making this a year round room, having your chairs and space heaters, fire pits and grill all out there and to top it off an outdoor Jacuzzi tub. OK, so who out there would not just love being in your Jacuzzi on a cool night and know that once you jump out your throw on your robe and you are just 10 feet away from your home. There are so many ways to enjoy your outside living even in the winter. My uncle has the best outdoor living space, he built a patio above the back of their home, they partially enclosed it and added a space heater keeping it warm and on the non-enclosed side added a fire pit. They have a wooden outdoor bar and bar stools, long wooden benches with pillows and blankets, wooden lounge chairs and a few small wooden side tables. This is where they host all their adult parties year round, they have a small keg, flat screen TV so no one misses a game, it’s amazing. Unless you are worried about heavy snow or rain fall, there is no reason you can’t enjoy your outdoors during the winter just as much if not more than in the summer!
