10 Ways to Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space Through the Winter Months

10 Ways to Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space Through the Winter Months

The weather may be getting colder, but that doesn’t mean the good times on the patio and in the swimming pool need to come to an end. Your Union City pool builder has compiled a list of 10 ways you can keep your swimming pool and outdoor living space fun even during the fall and winter months:


1. Bring On the Heat

Adding a heat source is one sure way to create an inviting Cape Girardeau outdoor space for yourselves and guests to enjoy. Choose from tabletop designs or full-sized patio heaters to add both warmth and ambiance to your pool and patio area.

Perhaps you could even add a pool heater to keep your water nice and warm no matter the weather. We carry energy-efficient swimming pool heaters that will provide unlimited fun without adding much to your energy bill.


2. Create Fire

A heat source may make the area warm, but swimming pool fire features are what will draw friends and family members outdoors. From simple fire pits and ornate firebowls to stately fireplaces, Union City homeowners can pick and choose the features they want to create the atmosphere they desire.


3. Dress It Up

Adding a bit of wintry décor is a great way to add some flair to your swimming pool and patio area, even if you aren’t outdoors. Choose a selection of staple winter items that continue to be in season even after the holidays come to an end, such as decorative wreaths and fern trees, and place them around your swimming pool and patio.


4. Light Up the Night

Lighting is a must if you want to create a welcoming Union City outdoor living space. Strings of white LED lights are an economical way to add some extra twinkle to your backyard, though there are a number of other options including pathway lights, pot lights, and more. We can show you some amazing outdoor custom lighting options at our store.


5. Change Your Water Color

Darkness comes sooner during the Union City and Jonesboro winter months, which can make the swimming pool and hot tub area appear rather dark and dreary. If you change out your standard bulbs with some bright and festive color LED lights, it’ll be hard for friends and family to resist taking a dip in the heated swimming pool or hot tub.


6. Cover the Patio

Not only are exposed patios during the Tennessee winter subject to increased wear and tear, but covering the patio or creating an enclosure will create a warmer breeze-free outdoor living spot for everyone to lounge and enjoy.


7. Make it Cozy

Typical plastic outdoor patio chairs and loungers may suffice during the summer, but in the winter, when it’s already difficult to beckon others outdoors, it’s all the more important to add plush outdoor pillows and throws, or even completely replace the furniture on your patio and around the swimming pool and hot tub. We have a great selection of outdoor furniture to choose from.


8. Add Entertainment

Some Union City homeowners may choose to install a plasma television outdoors, but for those of us who haven’t, you can create your very own projection screen and watch shows and movies outdoors and under the stars. All you need is a projector, a white shower curtain, a wood frame and a staple gun and you’re set!


9. Create a Coffee, Tea, and Hot Chocolate Bar

If you already have an outdoor kitchen, this will be simple to create. For those who don’t, you can build your own outdoor space and make it as basic (such as placing a hot plate with a kettle on a table outside) or complex as you wish to match your outdoor living and backyard décor.


10. Throw a Party

What’s the point of a beautiful outdoor living space if you don’t show it off and entertain friends and family! Come by today to browse all the options we have to help you create a breathtaking, fun, or casual outdoor living area.
