If you are not using your deck in Autumn and winter, you’re missing out! Reduce winter cabin fever by turning your deck into an outdoor paradise even when the winds blow. Here are some ideas to help you continue using your deck when the temperature plummets:
Add some heat
One way to extend the use of your deck into autumn and winter is to add a patio heater. This will keep you and your guests warm while you’re enjoying the outdoors. A fire pit is another great way to extend the use of your deck into colder months. Not only will it keep you warm, but it will also create a cozy atmosphere for socialising with friends and family.
You could also have some blankets at the ready. There’s nothing like sitting under a warm blanky with a cup of chai.
Add some colour!
If you’re looking for a way to add some autumn colour to your deck, consider adding some plants. Pumpkins, gourds, and other types of squash are great additions that will not only add colour but also provide some autumn décor. If you want to add even more colour, consider adding some festive ornaments.
Add some comfy furniture
Another way to enjoy your deck in the Autumn and Winter is to add some comfy furniture. This will make it feel more like a living space and less like an outdoor space. Add a few throw pillows, a blanket, or even a fireplace to make it feel extra cozy.
Whatever you do, don’t let the cold weather keep you from using your deck! With a few simple additions, you can extend the use of your deck well into autumn and winter.
So get outside and enjoy the fresh air while staying warm and comfortable!
