Using Your Deck Year ‘Round is Possible!
Fall is here, which means Winter is right around the corner and you’re probably feeling nostalgic for those warm summer days out on your deck. You don’t have to feel bummed, though! Using your deck through the colder months is not only possible but can be extremely enjoyable! The secret is creating a warm, cozy space that’s protected from the elements. If you’re wondering how to use your deck year ’round, look no further. Harmony Decking has a few tricks and tips to help you through the colder months.
Try These Tips and Enjoy Your Deck Year ‘Round
- Add some patio heaters – Patio heaters are a great addition to any deck. They come big and small and are available at most hardware and home improvement stores. They can be relatively affordable and can act as a great focal point on your deck for guests to sit around.
- Add some lighting – Lighting brings both atmospheric and literal warmth to your deck. String lights are always a great aesthetic, but lamps, spotlights, candles, and any other lighting will make your deck feel cozier during the cold months. Heat lamps are another great source of warmth.
- Invest in a fire pit – These can be a little more pricey but are a sure fire way to heat up your deck and add to your aesthetic. Most fire pits run on propane, which is accessible and affordable. There’s nothing better than sitting around a fire and talking with good friends and family! Plus, everyone loves s’mores!
- Cover your deck – Depending on the winter weather where you live, covering your deck is a great option for the colder months. Awnings are great if it’s not windy or snowy. Wind screens are another option to protect your deck from winter wind.
