How to Extend Your Outdoor Living into Winter

Ways to Enjoy Your Outdoor Space into the Winter 

Just because autumn is coming to a close in Connecticut doesn’t mean you have to move the celebration indoors. Winter is one of the most anticipated times of the year in the Northeast because it transforms landscapes into beautiful snow-covered paintings and provides more opportunities to cozy up in front of a roaring fireplace. 

Now, if you’re looking for ways to maximize the enjoyment of your outdoor space during winter, our team is here to share a few helpful tips. 

Bring the Warmth 

Are you looking to stay toasty and warm on a cold winter night? Consider introducing outdoor heaters into your external space. Coming in various shapes, sizes, and finishes, external heating elements are a great addition to any property. Running on a standard propane tank (just like a barbeque), outdoor heaters are simple to operate and can be moved around where needed the most. 

Set the Ambiance 

Considering taking things up a notch? If so, you’ll want to have a custom fire pit built in your yard. Fire pits not only provide ambiance and heat, but they are also the perfect spot to gather with friends on a chilly winter night. Whether it be a wine and cheese night with adults or roasting marshmallows for a s’mores night with the little ones, you’ll make memories that will last a lifetime. 

Provide the Comfort 

While a chaise lounge is ideal for spending a day by your custom-built pool or water feature, it’s not so comforting on a brisk winter evening. The solution? Build an outdoor pavilion to house an array of comfort-providing amenities. For instance, the pavilion will be the perfect spot to place an outdoor sectional sofa in front of a roaring fireplace or an outdoor television.
