How to Enjoy Your Outdoor Space in the Winter
Just because the weather turns cold during fall and winter in the Twin Cities doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your outdoor space. With the right accommodations and plenty of blankets, you can spend time outside to enjoy the sun’s rays, even when it’s chilly outside. Just don’t forget the hot chocolate (or other favorite warming beverage).
Warm Up by the Fire Pit
With a fire pit, you can spend extra time outside during cooler weather. Fire pits are an awesome heat source to warm up your outdoor space. Keep plenty of dry wood and kindling handy so you can make a fire with ease. You can enjoy swapping stories with friends and family and sipping on a warm beverage. Plus, you can roast marshmallows over the fire for a late-night snack.
Cook Outside in Your Outdoor Kitchens
Grilling and outdoor cooking don’t have to end just because the weather is cooler. With a covered outdoor kitchen, you can grill up a comforting meal outside, even if it is snowing. You could even have some wood-fired pizza in your pizza oven in the fall and winter, giving your next meal a smokey flavor you can only get by cooking outside.
Full-Service Outdoor Bar
For your next fall or winter get-together, plan a few drinks that warm the soul while hanging around your fire pit. Using your full-service bar, you can heat some apple cider or spiced wine to share with your friends. No need to track snow and dirt into the house when you can stay warm outside.
Add Some Lighting
By incorporating lanterns, string lights, candles, and outdoor heaters, you can shed some light on your patio or gazebo and enjoy the ambiance. Perfect lighting will help others enjoy the space and embrace the cold weather.
Cozy Up With Blankets and Pillows
Thick, warm blankets and comfortable pillows will enhance any outdoor space. Adding these accessories can provide extra coziness and warmth to help your friends and family enjoy the outdoors. You can also include an outdoor rug to complement the space.
Winter-Safe Outdoor Furniture
When shopping for furniture for your outdoor space, ensure your selections will withstand the cold in the Twin Cities. You don’t want anything cracking or breaking due to extreme temperatures. With sturdy furniture, you can hang out at a table, bundled in a blanket, and play a game or chat while catching a few rays of winter sunlight.
Enclose Your Space
Whatever space you have in your backyard, you can always enclose it with a shade or rolling mesh screens to help keep out the wind and chill. These will help you enjoy the outdoors in the fall and winter without the wind burning your skin. Watch the leaves or snow fall from outside and immerse yourself in nature.
