Make your patio cosy for winter!

Gable - Enclosed with slatsAussies love being outside. Whenever the weather is lovely, we enjoy the outdoors. What’s not to like? The sun, fresh air and hosting al fresco for family and friends. However, when winter sweeps in, does this mean we seek shelter inside? No – with a few clever tricks, you can make your patio cosier and turn it into an outdoor space that you can use all year round.

Do you want to use your patio during the chilly season?

You don’t have to leave your patio during winter. It can be the perfect space to enjoy long, warm evenings with the family. How to? Here are some winter tips for you.

  • Invest in some blinds. You will be surprised at how much wind can be blocked by puling down a blind or 2 to create a perfect cosier corner in your patio.
  • Build a firepit. This will make winter nights warmer. If you are in a rental or don’t want to make this kind of investment, you can use a gas heater around your patio. A great way to create a campfire feel!
  • Use brightly coloured accessories. Brightly coloured pillows and rugs can make your area look warmer. Plus, seeing colours in the winter would surely brighten up your chilly winter days and nights.
  • Snuggle up, have a few big cushions and a rug. Perfect for snuggling up with a hot cuppa and a book. You can even take some time out and snuggle up with your beloved.
