Just because it’s getting chilly doesn’t mean you have to avoid being out on your deck. Enjoy more good times on your deck, even in cooler weather.
We have some great ideas so you can enjoy fall and early winter weather from the comfort of your deck.
Cozy It Up
Add blankets, rugs, pillows! Those accessories add a pop of color. They also make the area a comfortable place to drink hot chocolate and watch the sunset (or rise). The cozier the space, the longer you’ll want to stay.
Turn Up The Heat
Adding some warmth with a gas fire table/pit, heat lamps, or space heaters will keep you comfy all fall and winter. Imagine watching the snowfall from your deck, and not even noticing the cold. You could even have an outdoor fireplace built to roast marshmallows year round!
Add Some Pretties
Wreaths, pumpkins, mums, and other fall flowers give a festive fall feel to your deck. Get fall colored accessories for your deck furniture, and an outdoor rug to match. Just add people and spiced drinks, and you’re good to go.
Just Add Light
Days get shorter but your deck can still shine bright with lighting. Candles, string lights, or LED lighting, are all great options for adding a relaxing or festive feel to your deck in cooler weather. And, it allows you to stay planted on that cozy couch, wrapped in a blanket, sipping on your drink of choice.
Let The Good Times Roll
A little competition keeps the blood pumping and your body warm. With a rowdy game of cornhole, football, or giant Jenga, you’ll bring all the neighbors to your yard. Also, check out these great suggestions from Good Housekeeping.
Cover It Up
With some sort of cover over your deck, you’re more likely to stay outdoors longer. A roof cover, gazebo, awning, or any other covering will create a cozy space where you can hang out and enjoy the scenery.
The end of summer doesn’t mean you have to stop enjoying your deck. With the right touches, it can bring you year-round enjoyment.
