4 Fall Outdoor Living Ideas to Extend your Patio Season


As temperatures drop in the fall, outdoor activities start to dwindle. However, there are still beautiful days and evenings left to enjoy outside. Make the most of the fall with these outdoor living ideas that will extend your patio season.

 

Add Some Heat

You will need a good heating source for those chilly nights. Popular product choices to warm up an outdoor living area are fire pits and outdoor fireplaces, which add ambiance, a sophisticated touch, and visual appeal to an outdoor living space. Other heating options are chimineas, propane patio heaters, and electric heating appliances like infrared. You'll want to locate any heating sources close to your seating and dining areas. 

 

Bring your Entertainment Outside

Now that you have heat, why not enjoy your favorite fall sporting events or a family movie night with your friends and family in the comfort of your backyard? The fall is prime time for North America's four major professional sports. An exterior entertainment space with an outdoor TV, a great audio system, and high-quality furniture create a comfortable extension of your living space. Grab a few cocktails or a hot beverage, and invite your friends for an evening of fun times and great memories.

  

Build an Outdoor Room

Another essential fall outdoor patio idea is adding an overhead roof like a covered pergola, gazebo, pavilion, or our NEW louvered roof system are the most common solutions for covering an outdoor living space. This is even more important in the fall when people retreat inside due to cooler temperatures and rain. Outdoor structures can be enclosed, insulated, and heated to create a safe and comfortable outdoor experience.

  

Furniture and Decor

Fall's unpredictable weather and constantly fluctuating temperatures will take a toll on outdoor furniture. Buy outdoor furniture made with weather-resistant materials that will reduce the likelihood of the furniture rusting, developing mold, fading, and warping. To extend the life of your outdoor furniture, keep them in a covered space to protect them from the elements and cover the furniture pieces up whenever possible. Add fall-colored pillows and outdoor rugs to your outdoor space to provide another layer of warmth for seating areas. Always keep a warm blanket on hand, and embrace the Fall holiday season with Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations.
