Raise the roof structure for a safer shelter:

Winter snow is surely an element of serious concern that needs to be tackled immediately in the first few days of January. So, if your patio is uncovered, consider it covering or raising the overall roof structure.

Addition of an overhead shelter to your existing patio is the common request made by different homeowners in 2018. The roof remodeling for winters could be anything from decent, detached pergola to a completely sheltered area with heaters, fans, and speakers coming off of your main entrance.

The cost and timeline of this project could vary depending upon your wish list and current structure.

Bring some heat!

Of course, the structure of outdoor living space is incomplete without the addition of a heater. Making your outdoors warm and cozy is the central element that simply enhances the look of your patio and you will not only feel toasty, but you will have the best space for entertaining guests as well.

Today, many homeowners are choosing the outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, and some Mexican-style chimeras. It could simply make a wonderful gathering with your friends, especially on weekend getaways.

Choosing a custom or built-in fire feature can simply help you save big bucks as everything could be adjustable under $200.

Comfortable seating:

People choose something that looks expensive and rich, but also durable and long lasting. It’s important to maintain the things according to the weather conditions, like extreme heat, cold or rainy season. Therefore, in order to make the outdoors more winter-friendly, it’s better to invest in the furniture that can simply withstand with all such elements.

Improve the lighting system of the outdoors:

If you want to boost the feeling of warmth in your outdoor living areas, it’s best to encourage some natural lighting. However, when the sun sets earlier, you would love finding yourself retreating indoors where its more bright and nice light. Thus, if the natural light in your outdoors is quite limited then it’s better to incorporate candles, warm or soft lighting and lamps to spread some toasty glow.

Cozy decoration:

Styling and texture always matter and increase the visual warmth of your outdoors. People tend to enhance the look of their outdoor space through mantle decorations, plants and landscape pictures. The addition of rattan furniture also helps to warm up your space. You can use plants, candles, and warm-colored palettes to create the inviting look at your entrance in even the coldest depths of winter.
