As the weather gets colder, entertaining people outside requires a few upgrades to your outdoor living space. There are many fixes and upgrades available that will warm your patio, deck, or backyard. These features will help to warm up your outdoor space throughout the year.

Build a Fire Pit

A fire is a great way to bring people together. An outdoor fire pit is a perfect way to warm up your outdoor space for your friends and family. They are also an investment that can be used year-round.

Fire pits come in many different styles. Traditional fire pits are more cost-effective to add to your backyard and are fueled by firewood. You’ll also find more costly models that are fueled by gas. These are a bit more expensive but easier to light and maintain than wood-burning fire pits. Fire pits are a great addition to your backyard, but make sure to place them safely away from shrubs, overhanging branches, outbuildings, and other structures.

Warm Up Your Outdoor Space with a Hot Tub

A hot tub is another investment that will help keep you warm through the colder months. Hot tubs help people enjoy the outdoors even on the coldest days, and are therapeutic for sore muscles and a stress reliever. Installing a hot tub on your patio or deck will also add value to your home. They do require some care and maintenance but can be well worth the money if you use them regularly.

Radiant Floor Heating Will Warm Up Your Outdoor Space

One of the most luxurious options to consider when it comes to outdoor heating is radiant floor heating. While this is most commonly seen inside houses, radiant heating is an expensive and welcome addition to your outdoor space. Radiant floor heating is best installed under concrete or stone rather than wood since wood is a poor conductor of heat.

One of the most common uses for under-floor heating is to heat your walkways and driveway. This will melt snow and make these areas safer on wintery mornings.

Patio Heaters

Patio heaters help warm up outdoor gatherings during the winter. You’ll find both electric and propane models that come in a variety of styles. These heaters are portable and can be arranged to fit any layout. Patio heaters are also one of the most economical ways to warm up your outdoor space.
