The days are shorter, and the weather is colder, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay inside all winter! Outdoor entertainment areas can be as fun in the winter as in the summer. This blog post will discuss how to create the ultimate outdoor entertainment area for the winter. We will cover everything from furniture to decorations to make your space perfect for enjoying the season!
Insulate Your Dedicated Entertainment Space
If you want to enjoy your outdoor entertainment area during the winter fully, you need to ensure that it is adequately insulated. If you have an open space, consider closing it with some canvas material or PVC panels. Also, ensure you have plenty of blankets and cushions so your guests can stay cozy while they enjoy the winter wonderland around them.
Make sure you have plenty of seating available so your guests will be comfortable. Install bench seats around the perimeter of the space and consider adding a few chairs or bean bags for additional seating. If you have ample enough space, you could add a couch or daybed. Just make sure that there is plenty of seating for everyone who wants to enjoy the area.
Warm Things Up With Proper Lighting
Add some festive lighting to help create a warm and inviting atmosphere. String lights around the perimeter of the space or hanging them from trees. Torches are also a great way to add light and heat to the area. If you have a fireplace, make sure it is well-stocked with wood and ready to go. Nothing beats gathering around a fire on a cold winter night.
Add A Fire Pit
A fire pit is a perfect way to extend outdoor entertaining into the cooler months. Not only will it keep you and your guests warm, but it will also provide a focal point for your outdoor space. If you don’t have a lot of space, consider a portable fire pit that can be moved around as needed.
When choosing a spot for your fire pit, ensure it is away from any low-hanging branches or other potential hazards. You will also need to consider the wind direction when placing your fire pit. You don’t want smoke blowing into your face or your guests’ faces.
If you are hiring a concrete contractor to build your fire pit, be sure to ask about the different options for finishes. A concrete fire pit can be stained or painted to match your existing patio furniture and décor.
Use Warm Colors
Use warm colors to make your outdoor entertainment area more inviting. Think about using red, orange, and yellow in your decor. You can also use these colors in your furniture and accessories. For example, you could use a red throw blanket on your sofa or chairs. Or, you could use yellow pillows on your outdoor furniture. These colors will help to create a warm and inviting space for you and your guests.
As the winter months approach, many of us begin to spend more time indoors. However, with some creativity and effort, your outdoor space can transform into a cozy oasis you and your family will love spending time in.
