3 Additions to Your Deck That Will Make You Happy This WinterSeptember 27th, 2022 | by Admin Deck Experts | in Custom Deck Building | 0
The weather is cooling off, but don’t give up on your deck. Here are 3 deck additions that will make you happy this winter. It can still be loads of fun hanging out on your deck this fall and winter. So, here are our suggestions for making you more comfortable.
There is a deck heater of every size, shape, and price tag. There are electric ones and propane ones—and that’s just for starters. Get a heater and be more comfortable sitting outside. Deck heaters can be tall and slender for a corner, they can hang—such as over a table, and they can emit heat all around them. Do a thorough search before deciding what works best for you and your habits.
And since we’re talking about keeping warm, how about a fire pit? There are small ones, large ones, and every size in between. There are even fire tables that have your fire slightly higher. Next to heat, fire is what people enjoy most when sitting outside. And the good news is that a fire pit can also serve as a heater.
And on the topic of keeping warm, get some inexpensive blankets for your outdoor seating so your guests can sit around late into the night. You can always find inexpensive washable blankets at Costco, Walmart, Winners, or IKEA. With a little good taste, you make everything look matching as well as warm and cozy.
