Many people only make use of their outdoor patio during the warmer seasons, but there’s no reason you can’t enjoy your backyard during the winter! Your patio can be even more cozy and enjoyable when your family is gathered around the fire.

Check out these three tips to make your outdoor patio comfortable during the coldest parts of the year:

Install a Heat Source

With the right type and amount of heat, you can create a cozy outdoor environment even in the heart of January. Depending on your style, you may choose to install a few propane heaters around the patio or bring in a classic fire pit. Whatever you prefer, a heat source is a must for your family to enjoy the outdoors during the winter.

Cover Your Heads

This tip goes hand-in-hand with installing a reliable heat source. By constructing a gazebo, pergola, or pavilion, you can protect guests from the elements while trapping the heat emitted by a fireplace or heat lamp.

Rearrange Your Seating

You shouldn’t arrange furniture in the same way as you would during the summer. Be sure all your outdoor furniture is near a heat source. Don’t neglect to add some comfy throw blankets and cozy pillows. Even adding a new outdoor rug can make an area feel more inviting while also protecting your guests from moisture on the ground.
