Outdoor living in winter

How to Enjoy Your Outdoor Space this Winter

Stop what you’re doing! You do not need to say farewell to your Fire Magic outdoor kitchen and send your patio furniture into hibernation. Despite what you may think, there is still plenty of opportunities to use your outdoor living space through the winter. 

We might be preparing to say goodbye to 2022 with New Years fast approaching, but there is no need to say goodbye to outdoor living, we’re about to show you why winter is the perfect season for enjoying your outdoor space despite the colder temperatures. 

Brighten Your Outdoor Space with Lighting

Outdoor lights are not just for Christmas! As evenings are getting darker in the winter months, it is the perfect time to adorn your outdoor living space in modern festoon lights and sparkling fairy lights. 

Outdoor lighting can transform your garden, and if done cleverly can impact the perception of how big a space is. Spotlights can be used to accentuate structural or decorative features of your outdoor space, and considerate string lights can add warmth and depth to a colder more industrial space.

Renson pergolas come with a plethora of personalisation options, including heating solutions. With the addition of sides, your pergola can become an extension of your indoor living space, and look super stylish too with a choice between Loggia Sliding Panels, Windtight FixScreens and Glass Sliding Panels.

Invest in a Fire Pit for Atmosphere

Our absolute favourite part of winter months is gathering around a fire pit, roasting a marshmallow and sipping on some mulled wine. A fire pit will ensure you are toasty warm throughout the coldest months, and the robust design of our Solus fire pits is perfect for year round use!

Providing warmth, a gathering space and so much style to your outdoor living space, there isn’t a reason we can think of not to get yourself a fire pit! Head to our blog to see which Solus fire pit is the right fit for your home.

Pizza is Always a Good Idea

Whether your New Years resolution is to cut back on take-aways or you’re looking for an excuse to gather your friends post-Christmas, a Pizza Oven is the ideal way to treat yourself this winter. A pizza oven not only radiates heat to keep you warm during pizza night, but can cook a pizza in as little as 60 seconds – your outdoor kitchen is bound to be a hit! 

Plus, both DeliVita and Alfa pizza ovens are able to cook a variety of winter warmers including delicious curries and classic pies, guaranteed to warm you on even the coldest of days! Unsure which Pizza Oven is right for you? Head to our blog where we compare both DeliVita and Alfa.

Incorporate Textiles Into Your Outdoor Space

When the kids head to bed, cuddle up under a fleecy throw with a glass of wine and enjoy the tranquility of your garden. Cosy blankets will provide additional warmth when needed, but will also work to soften the harder natural textures in your outdoor living space. 

While, scatter cushions and an outdoor rug will add sophistication to your outdoor living space, showing a considered effort to transform your outdoor living space into a winter wonderland . Stargazing in December is possible when you’re cocooned amongst your soft furnishings!

Going ‘Out’ to the Movies

Now that your outdoor space is weather-proof and cosy, sit down and relax to watch the World Cup or a Christmas classic on your outdoor TV. Protected from the elements, warmed by your fire pit and tucking into a pizza, there really isn’t anything else you need to make your winter evenings any better. 

With all the comforts of the living room brought outside, you can enjoy your outdoor space 365 days a year! If you’re really looking to evolve your outdoor space then consider a hot tub – there is nothing better on a crisp evening.

New Years Resolution: Invest in an Outdoor Kitchen

Winter is the perfect time to start your plans for an outdoor kitchen! Why wait until the summer when valuable time is taken by installation, when you could already be enjoying your outdoor space? 

Additionally, during the winter months you can usually benefit from better availability from suppliers to renovate your outdoor space quickly and efficiently. We encourage you to utilise the cooler months to prepare your outdoor living space and outdoor kitchen ready for spring.
