Winter doesn’t have to mean the end of your outdoor patio season. With a few simple adjustments, you can make your patio enjoyable all year long. From cozy furniture to creative lighting, these tips from Maple Leaf Associates Inc. will help you enjoy your outdoor space even when the temperatures drop.
The first step in making your patio winter-usable is to look into heating options. Portable heaters are always great options, as are built-in fireplaces and fire pits. Additionally, we can craft some patios to include heated floors and other heating elements. So, if you’re looking to get the most out of your patio all year round, we suggest adding a heating option.
Another way to make sure your outdoor space is comfortable during the winter is to invest in wind protection. For starters, consider adding hedges or other dense shrubbery along the perimeter of your patio that can block out strong winds and drafts. If you don’t want to commit to planting something permanent, there are also temporary wind blockers that come in all shapes and sizes, so you can easily create an oasis no matter what time of year it is.
Finally, don’t forget about lighting! String lights and lanterns are especially effective at creating a warm atmosphere on chilly evenings. You could also use solar lighting if you don’t have access to power or just want something less intrusive than traditional electric lighting fixtures. With so many options available, there’s bound to be something that fits your style and budget perfectly!
