Five Great Ways to Warm Up Your Deck & Patio

If there’s one tough thing to say goodbye to at the end of summer, it’s outdoor entertaining on the patio. However, with certain additions, there’s hope for extending your patio use into late fall and winter. After all it was 68 degrees in the Piedmont Triad yesterday. Some require a larger investment such as a roof or heat lamps, others a kinder on the pocket, like candles. Here’s to functioning patios regardless of chilly weather!

Outdoor Living Room Perfect for Chilly Nights

 

Add a rooftop. Whether you choose a permanent, year-round construction or a seasonal canopy, a roof over the patio will help to contain heat in the cooler months. If possible, wire it with lighting to prepare it for fall’s earlier setting sun.

An Open Porch Creates Wonderful Usable Living Space

 

If you do add a roof, circle it with curtains. You can easily block a breeze when it becomes too chilly, plus, aesthetically, their addition will give your covered patio a tropical cabana feel.

Build a fireplace. This one is fairly obvious, and will change the way you experience your patio.
