How to Enjoy Your Outdoor Space Beyond Summer

Take delight in the outdoor space that you’ve created long past the summer days. Through a bit of preparation, organization and creativity, you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors for any season to come.

Edit the Furniture

It may be time to fold the outdoor umbrellas. Keep the pieces you’ll be using regularly which can adapt to the different seasons. Check your space and outdoor furniture for wear and tear or during the summer and bring them to authorized persons for needed repairs.

Switch Colours

Replace the bright hues of summer with rich tones that reflect each season. Autumn can bring about deep tones of reds, rustic browns and burnt oranges. A simple way to replace colours is to change up pillow cases and add in outdoor rugs.

Cool Lighting

Light is especially important in the cooler months. Use various lanterns scattered around to create a warm atmosphere around your area. Pendant lights are also a great addition to bring in illumination but still keep an intimate setting.

Plant Care

Your summer plants may not survive the cooler months. Replace them with cold-season flowers that will brighten up your space! You can plant cheery pansies, snapdragons, chrysanthemums and English daisies. Looking at the bright colours brings warmth even in the dead of winter.

Warm and Cosy

Fire pits are a great way to build an inviting atmosphere at the same time providing warmth to you and your guests. Add in smores-making and roasting hotdogs and you’re all set to entertain in all seasons.

Throw Texture

As the temperature drops after summer, keep a basket filled with throws and blankets near your outdoor space to create a relaxed and cosy environment. Throws can add texture, colour, warmth and style to your space.
