With fall quickly approaching, those who enjoy outdoor living begin looking for ways to extend the outdoor living season. Here, you'll find a few things that can keep your outdoor living comfortable even as the winter season takes over.
1. Heat Source
The main thing to worry about as the season changes is how chilly it can get as you watch the sun fade behind the trees each evening. There are so many options for you to consider utilizing to heat your outdoor living area.
Fire Pits – These days, you can find free-standing fire pits to fit into any outdoor living area. You can find them in basic models that burn wood, or more sophisticated models that burn propane, natural gas, or gel.
Fireplace – Building an outdoor fireplace is a relatively big job, but it is a permanent fixture that won't need much more attention than an occasional cleaning.
Propane Heaters – Take a look around your local home and garden store. You'll find quite a few models of outdoor patio propane heaters. These can be large towers or small boxes – depending on how large of an area you're trying to heat.
As summer comes to an end, the days will become shorter, so you'll need some lighting in your outdoor living space. Fortunately, there are so many available solar powered options that you shouldn't have to run any electrical wiring to set up the lighting.
Solar powered lights come in all forms – basic fixtures, wall sconces, baluster caps and rails, path lights, and spotlights – pretty much any kind of lighting you can get that requires electricity, you can find in a solar powered option.
3. Install Coverage
If you don't have any type of roof over your outdoor living space, it's time to consider it. Just a basic canopy can add quite a bit of style and comfort to the space, but if you're looking for something that you can keep up through the fall and winter, you'll want a sturdy, framed cover for over your space.
Picture yourself sitting in your favorite patio chair or swing, sipping on a hot cup of tea while listening to the fire crackling as the leaves fall around you. Your outdoor living season doesn't have to come to an end – you just need to make a few improvements to make it possible to take advantage of every second of beautiful weather that you see this year.
