During the holidays and winter months, spending time with friends and family is unfortunately limited due to COVID. What you CAN do is create a warm and inviting outdoor space to catch up with your loved ones where small gatherings are allowed. In fact, this year, Canadians have been spending their vacation money on their homes and wellness instead of trips. Here is what other homeowners have been doing to improve their patio's aesthetic and keep them at a comfortable temperature.
Trends That Keep You Warm
These cold-weather fads are functional for more than decorating; they will leave you feeling toasty. According to CTV report, outdoor heater searches have been up in Canada by 180% recently. Other popular 2020 choices are plug-in mats for the patio floor, fuzzy pelts to put over snowy seats, as well as fire pits. If you want to bring the fire warmth up a notch and literally up off the ground for extra warmth and a stunning light show, fireballs are where it’s at. Storing firewood in a custom holder by the door is not only convenient but achieves the cozy appearance homeowners have been going for.
Outdoor Styles Perfect for Winter
Being limited to outdoor gatherings doesn’t mean you can’t make it festive: Here are some fashionable exterior looks. You could display a few variations of wreaths, such as metallic/rust wreaths, boxboard wreaths, eucalyptus wreaths, or peace wreaths. When looking to create a healing atmosphere, consider our hanging lotus flower.
Oversized LED or candle lanterns are also coming in style, not only providing a little warmth and light at night, but you are also able to set whatever mood you're going for by choosing the cut-out shadow designs you like. Some other fun statements you can include are candlesticks in the window, brass bells, string lights, and a wooden sled in the yard.
Need more places to rest your hot chocolate mug? Side tables can be made from various natural materials. For a rustic look, tree trunks cut to size fit the bill. For durability and personalization, a custom-designed steel table powder-coated to the colour of your choice is the route to take.
While there may not be a whole lot of parties coming up or holiday movies to go to, there is still somewhere to go, and that is in your own backyard! Make new memories sharing your trendy outdoor space with your close family and friends this winter.
