Create An Outdoor Space Perfect for Fall

The weather may be crisp and perfect now, but in a month or two, we will be forced to endure another frigid winter. So, let’s spend as much time outside as we can!

Fall is the perfect time to indulge in the beauty of your outdoor spaces. Here are some ideas to create the ideal outdoor spaces perfect for a fall gathering.

Fire Features In Your Outdoor Space

A fire feature is a must for a cozy fall evening. Including a fire pit in your backyard design creates a perfect gathering place to relax and chat.

This area should also include comfy seating where your guests can bundle up under a blanket on a crisp evening. Wood fire pits are nice, but a gas-powered fire feature is far more convenient and easily used year-round.

Dine On the Deck

Al fresco dining in the fall feels like a dream after the warm summer months. If you have a deck, that is the perfect place to set up a dining table.

You’ll want to ensure the space has adequate lighting for ambiance and safety reasons. If your deck is covered, installing a chandelier will make the space feel luxurious. If it is open, outdoor string lights will make the space fun and festive.

As fall comes to an end, it’s a good idea to inspect your deck for any repairs that may need to be done. Look for rot, water damage, or any wobbly spots that may need to be repaired or replaced.

Outdoor Space for Game Day

Football season is here! If you’re hosting the gameday get-together, why not take it outside? Being out in the fresh air will make you feel like you’re at the game, but you’ll have all the comforts of home!

If you have an outdoor kitchen and dining space, installing a big-screen TV and surround sound will be the perfect addition to the space. You’ll be close to the outdoor food prep area and refrigerator, which can store all of your game-day beverages.

A front porch can be an excellent outdoor space for all weather

Don’t Forget About the Front Porch

Having a seating area on your front porch gives you another space to sit back, relax, and enjoy your neighborhood. Having your morning coffee on the front porch can also allow you to wave to your neighbors who are out for a morning walk.

The fresh air, a dose of vitamin D, and interaction with other people will do wonders for your mental health and help get your day started on the right foot.

If your home doesn’t have a front porch, adding one is a project that can be done! There are quite a few styles of front porches; veranda, wrap-around, and farmer’s porches are all beautiful additions to a home and make excellent places to relax outdoors.
