Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean that you have to spend all of your time indoors. Spruce up your outdoor space, create the perfect winter sanctuary, and make the most out of your backyard-covered patio this season with our help. As your design partner, Hyland Landscapes, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite tips and tricks to help you make the most of your outdoor living area this winter.
1) Add some cozy winter throws to your outdoor furniture
If you have a backyard-covered patio, consider adding some cozy winter throws to your furniture. This will make it feel more like an indoor living space and less like a cold, outdoor one.
Flannel sheets, cashmere or wool blankets, and cotton quilts are this season’s must-have winter accessories. They’re a great way to add warmth and comfort, plus they make your outdoor furniture look stylish. You can even add faux fur stools and sheepskin rugs to your space for an extra touch of luxury.
2) Light up your backyard covered patio
One of the best ways to add some extra warmth and ambiance to your outdoor living space is to add some lights. String lights, lanterns, or even just a few candles can really make a difference. Not only will it make your space feel warmer and more inviting, but it’ll also make it look great too. You’ll be sure to love the extra bit of cheer they add to your space.
3) Fire up your fireplaces
In the winter, the fireplace is a great spot to meet with friends and family. Kinetic lighting can create a unique atmosphere in a space thanks to these beautiful focus points. So, gather around a backyard fire pit with a cup of hot chocolate or mulled wine and enjoy the cold winter air. Make some s’mores while you are at it, it’s a terrific way to spend the winter evenings while staying warm!
Fire pits work just as well too. If you don’t have a lot of space or if you just want something that’s a little more portable, then a fire pit in your backyard-covered patio can be a great addition. They come in all shapes and sizes, so there’s definitely one out there that will fit your needs.
4) Add some greenery to your outdoor space
Just because the foliage in your yard has gone dormant doesn’t mean that you can’t add some greenery to your outdoor space. Add a few potted plants and some greenery to your outdoor living area for an extra touch of life. Some winter-friendly plants such as fresh evergreens can really brighten up your space. You can use them as Christmas trees, garlands, or even just simple centerpieces. They’ll add a touch of natural beauty to your outdoor living area and make it look extra festive.
