The first day of winter isn’t until December 21st, but it certainly isn’t summer anymore. Hanging out on the deck is one of the best ways to relax in the evening or on weekends, but not if it’s freezing. However, there are a few great ways that you can keep your deck toasty and warm. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Invest in a Hot Tub

Nothing says “Relaxing” like a warm soak in a hot tub. Even when winter is in full force and the snow is starting to overtake your yard, you’ll be toasty and warm with your favorite people in a luxurious soak. The massaging jets certainly won’t hurt either.

A hot tub can sit atop a spacious deck without issue as long as the deck is in good working order. If you’re not sure whether your deck can handle it, it might be time to have it repaired.

Check Out a Chiminea

Chimineas offer a lot of great ambiance and functionality to your deck without having to worry about the flames getting out of control. Chimineas contain the fire that you create really well and will funnel the smoke up and away from you and your guests. Now, it’s important to note that ashes and cinders may float out of your chiminea and onto your deck, but you can easily place the structure on a little floor protector to help minimize the damage.

Get Yourself an Awning

Whether it’s an awning, a pergola, or anything else that will keep the snow and rain from covering your deck in the winter, it’s a sound investment. A major part of staying warm is about staying dry. So, as you think about how to maximize your outdoor living potential, spare a thought for a little canopy, bungalow, or awning to hide away under. You’ll be glad you did when you’re sitting out under a covering watching the snow fall in the midst of winter.
