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!
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.
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.
Adding great accessories like upholstered furniture, pillows, candles, and throw goes a long way into cozying up an outdoor living area.
Of course, the ultimate addition to a “fall” patio? A hot tub. The perfect spot to relax, star gaze and enjoy a cool, winter evening.
