7 Great Ways Enjoying Outdoor Living Space Throughout The Year
Outdoor can be the best spot to relax, after bedroom, of course. Creating a cozy oasis, especially to your outdoor space that extends through all seasons is quite easy. Here are some ideas I’ve come up with 7 easy ways to enjoy your yard throughout the year.
1. Heat Things Up
It’s simple to extend your time spent outdoors if you simply add a source of heat near seating areas. Warming up cold guests, a fire is a nice place to gather around and drink a hot beverage or roast marshmallows. Whether permanent or portable, consider a fire pit, outdoor fireplace, or outdoor heater to heat things up:
2. Add Lighting
Getting dark earlier in the fall, so add more lighting and readjust timers to illuminate your outdoor spaces. Lighting fixtures can be solar and LED, along with different types, like path markers, spotlights, and patio string lights.
3. Weatherproof Furniture
Some want to enjoy the patio or outdoor space beyond summer, just make sure your garden furniture is weather-resistant. It can be made from powder-coated steel, teak, and polyresin wicker are built to withstand the elements and last through many seasons. Also, cover it and bring in cushions and pillows when it rains or snows.
4. Add Grill
Everybody says that food tastes better if it’s been grilled, and that goes for any season. Continue grilling this fall, even into winter. To warm up a cold body, wear an extra shirt or sweater, a heat lamp, and swap the menu slightly for more warm dishes, and then cook and dine outside during the fall and winter.
5. Make Every Single Thing Cozy
Adding sources of heat and lighting helps to keep you outside. Further, try to add a feeling of coziness and warmth. To do so, you can make your outdoor space a true outdoor room by adding the comforts you enjoy indoors: pillows, throws, and blankets to share with a friend while you enjoy gazing at the stars or enjoying a hot beverage.
6. Year-Around Gardening
Do you like gardening? Growing some seasonal flowers, herbs, and vegetables in containers on your porch, deck, or patio could be an interesting activity. You’re more likely to spend time outside and become accustomed to the concept of spending time outdoors, even if you have to wear a jacket and gloves.
7. Hot Tub
The reason why hot tubs are so popular year-round: because they make you feel nice, warm, and relaxed—any time of year. But it especially feels good when the temperatures drop. In this cold weather, hot tubs are a great addition to your outdoor space. Whether it’s a solo soak or an impromptu party with some friends after a game or evening out, the tub is always there.
