With San Diego temperatures for November and December projected to be in the 70s and 50s, more and more homeowners will be entertaining outdoors. And why not? With the heat of the summer behind us, this is the perfect time to enjoy outdoor living. The only thing missing will be the perspiration.
Before you send out invitations for your get-together, though, here are a few suggestions to make sure your outdoor living space is ready and comfortable for your guests.
Make sure your guests are warm.
To knock the chill off, you’ve got a host of options for warming your guests. Outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, and chimeras are both functional and entrancing. The heat they produce coupled with their sound and light can make just about any atmosphere cozy.
Standing or mounted heaters and tall free-standing propane heaters are also good options for warming things up.
Put a top over your patio.
Whether you’re interested in a pergola or an arbor, a top over your house or walkway is an investment that can serve you year-round. While helping to keep you and your guests a bit warmer during the fall and winter months, they also can serve as a buffer from the summer heat.
Give your place a new look with outdoor lamps.
With the earlier sunsets, trendy outdoor lanterns can be strategically placed around your outdoor living area for a customized and comfortable effect. You can place them along with steps and pathways or next to individual seating arrangements.
Get the right furniture.
The key to selecting the right outdoor furniture is to focus on ones that will serve you well in all seasons. Lounge-style furniture is best for creating a casual atmosphere for your guests.
For durability, be sure to look for furniture with UV inhibitors, powder-coated finishes and extended warranties. If you really want to make your guests feel at home, heated furniture may be a good investment.
Don’t forget to accessorize.
As is often in life, the little things make a difference. It’s the same with outdoor furniture. Outdoor rugs, blankets and cushions can make your outdoor living area even more comfortable.
