Three Ideas For Outdoor Living Spaces In The Winter Months

Many people think that outdoor living spaces are only for the warmer months, but as mentioned above, there are ways to enjoy that same space in the winter months. Michigan winters can be long and filled with harsh weather. Adding certain elements to your outdoor living space will ensure that you can enjoy it even with the harshest weather.  Here are just a few ideas to get you started:

  • Use half walls and pavilions. Using pavilions or half walls gives you the best of both worlds. You still get to enjoy being outside, but the shelter these additions offer keeps the worst of the weather at bay. In the warmer months, you can also enjoy these areas without being in a stuffy room.
  • Add a touch of fire. Have a fireplace or fit pit added to your outdoor living space. Most homeowners opt to have built-in seating surrounding their fireplaces to create a warm and welcoming place for family and friends to gather on the coldest days.
  • Heat up the floors. One great way to ensure that your outdoor living area stays warm on the coldest days is to have a heated patio installed. The same technology that keeps outdoor malls popular in the cold months can be used to create a comfortable outdoor living space all year long.
