It can get cold in Columbus GA during the winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still make the most of your back deck. People are still preferring to entertain outside whenever possible, so it’s important to make sure the decks of your homes in Columbus GA are decked out properly to keep everyone warm, toasty, and happy.
Hopefully, like many people last year, you invested in one of the outdoor heating lamps. If you didn’t, you really should consider one, especially as they come in a variety of sizes and styles. The tall, slender ones are great as they don’t take up much space but can radiate heat a surprising distance.
That’s one of the best ways to make your deck more inviting to people to make them want to sit outside, but there are other heat sources and decorative touches that will make people feel cozy and welcome. A fire pit is always a plus and like the heat lamps, they come in a variety of sizes and styles to fit your particular deck or outdoor area. With flames, you always want to be careful and want to move it away from the home a bit more. However, a large, metal, circular log holder rack is a nice way to store the wood for the fire pit on your deck. It’s elegant and easily accessible.
The other key is warm, comfortable seating. Even if it’s wicker or rattan, make sure you add some large pillows to the backs of the chairs so that there aren’t any drafts coming through the furniture and people have a softer and more cozy place to sit. Don’t forget to set out plenty of throws and pillows for people to wrap up in and curl up around. You should consider having two per guest so they can wrap one around the shoulders and one across the legs.
Another cozy touch that really adds to the sense of warmth and style is the use of an attractive indoor/outdoor rug. If your deck is raised, it helps keep drafts from coming up through the floor and just creates a cozier vibe. Finish the seating area off with large lanterns filled with candles for a comforting glow and a festive winter greens wreath. A basket of hats and gloves finish off the perfect way to make your family and your guests feel warm and welcome.
Make the most of slightly more temperate winters and get more use out of the decks of your homes in Columbus GA. These tips should see you through the chilly months and before you know it, those warmer temperatures will soon be back. Just remember, you can grill outdoors any time of year!Tags: new homes columbus, new homes columbus ga
