Spending time in your backyard can be tough during winter. We’ve compiled some tips to make your outdoor living space more inviting during the colder months. Follow these simple tips to improve your backyard entertaining area and make the most of winter.
Enclose your backyard
Create an outdoor room by enclosing your pergola, patio or verandah with outdoor blinds. They significantly reduce the amount of wind and rain entering your outdoor area without the need or hassle of installing a permanent wall.
Outdoor blinds also provide the flexibility to open the area up to allow for air flow or close entirely when using an outdoor heater, insulating the space and keeping it warmer for longer.
Make your existing space cosier
Consider what outdoor furniture you have and how you can make it more comfortable.
Available in a range of styles to suit your home, outdoor lounges are a great addition to any outdoor area and can be enjoyed all year round. They create a comfortable place to enjoy your morning coffee or snuggle in with a warm woolen blanket to read your favourite book.
Outdoor heating options
Your outdoor area is an extension of your home and should be heated during winter as you would any other room. With many different options available, there are a few questions that should be taken into consideration when deciding which outdoor heater will best fit your area. These include:
- The size of your space, as this will determine how many heaters you may require.
- Your preference of heating fuel: gas or electric.
- Whether you’d like the flexibility of changing the location of your freestanding heater, or whether you require a mounted heater due to limited floor space.
Mud free, manicured lawn
A common backyard during winter often features overgrown grass or mud puddles the kids and pets love to spread through the house. This can often means homeowners avoid their backyards as it reminds them of work that needs to be done.
Artificial grass provides a well manicured lawn that always looks inviting, while effectively eliminating mud from your garden. For this reason, it is quickly becoming the preferred lawn option for many people and families.
Warm up in a spa
A spa is the most luxurious way to warm up during winter, especially with a glass of wine and relaxing music playing in the background. The warm water promoters increased blood circulation throughout your body, while gently massaging away aches and pains which are often heightened during the cooler months.
