As we are approaching fall there are fewer sunny days and the outdoor activities in the yard or balcony are getting sparse. This, however, shouldn’t prevent you from trying to prolong as possible the enjoyable friend reunions or outdoor fun time. There are plenty of options and proper lighting and patio roofs can make your patio or balcony perfectly pleasant in the colder days as well. Let’s check some of the best to make your backyard comfortable the entire year.

Weatherproof furniture

Make sure your patio furniture is of good quality and resistant to rain or snow. That kind of furniture is usually made of powder-coated steel, teak, and polyresin wicker. It would be good if you had different sets of furniture accessories like pillows for summer and winter. This is because winter materials are not comfortable for hot summer days and can make you sweaty. The fabrics for the pillows for fall/winter can be made of reticulated foam which is also antibacterial and fast dry. You can use sheet plastic to cover your furniture if you want to protect it while not using it. 

Comfortable seating

The most important thing if you want to be relaxed and spend an enjoyable time in your backyard is the seating set. Usually, it consists of sofas, lounge chairs, loungers, etc. The commodity of good furniture invites you to spend time on your patio and that’s why it is so relevant. There are many options when it comes to open-air furnishings other than just sofas. You can add some outdoor bean bags that are not just very comfortable but also very practical since you can easily move them around and position them wherever you want. There is plenty of variety when it comes to them since they can be small or big, made for kids or adults, there are even bean bags for your pets, so everything is covered. Make it cozy for you and your family and friends. Add some cushions, ottomans, blankets, etc. It will be hard to leave such a warm place.

A hot tub for your patio 

This can be very convenient when the temperatures drop. Having a hot tub on your patio can make the party and prolong the feeling that the summer is still there. Why have just a tub? Get some furniture that goes along with it, like floating chairs or loungers for the pool. If you have an enclosed patio, it is even better because the low temperatures won’t even be perceivable. This is good for spacious patios. For smaller places, consider some other features like a rustic fireplace. Also, instead of a hot tub, you can add a small garden fountain (you can have both but for a smaller space it could be too much). 

The decoration

Other than comfortable furniture, which is the most important for your relaxation, you should think about the following stuff. Maintain your space tidy. If there are plants like trees and hedges, prune them regularly. If landscaping is your thing, you can make the environment even more vivid with some nice flowers. Don’t forget the lighting to enjoy it at night too. 

Now that you know what’s important to have a cozy backyard, be sure you use that space accordingly and enjoy the outdoor relaxation no matter what season there is. 

Invest in good and comfortable outdoor furniture that will last for years. Accompany your sofa with some practical and cozy bean bags where you can sprawl and enjoy the fresh air. Decorate your patio as you like, depending on the space you have and your economy, but don’t forget to make it clean and tidy. If you do all this, a place like that should become your private oasis for sure.
