Though it may have arrived a bit late, the chills of winter weather have finally hit Montgomery County. For many people, this time of year means a lot more time indoors. For lovers of the outdoors, this can be a sad time. Long summer days spent in the backyard have given way to shorter, colder winter days spent in our living rooms. But this doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. With the right additions to your Montgomery County backyard space, you can enjoy the wonders of your backyard through all four seasons. Consider these options:
- Outdoor fireplaces & firepits – An outdoor fire source is the easiest way to create a welcoming outdoor environment even in the coldest months of the year. Add a fireplace or firepit to your deck or patio and surround it with a set of high-quality outdoor furniture to create a cozy outdoor living room.
- Heat lamps & lighting – Overhead heat lamps can really warm up a semi-enclosed space such as a gazebo, or deck or patio with an overhang. Freestanding heat lamps are another option. Keeping your outdoor space well-lit with a quality lighting system will also help warm things up and create a welcoming environment.
- Sunrooms & 4-season rooms – Sunrooms and 4-season rooms offer the best of both worlds. They allow you to relax in the comfort and warmth of your home’s interior, while simultaneously enjoying the beauty of your backyard from the full-paneled windows. Spending time in these rooms during the colder months enables you to get the sunlight so many of us lack at this time of year. This in turn can help improve mood and fend off the winter blues.
If you’re looking ahead to spring and summer and considering building a backyard living space for long days in the warm weather, consider acting now rather than waiting. With the right features, a backyard living space can be enjoyed throughout all four seasons. And by constructing your space early, you’ll have it ready to go once the weather does start to warm up again.
