Outdoor Renovations for a Winter Oasis

It’s never too late to create your very own Winter Wonderland! As the chilly season sets in, it is almost impossible not to catch the warmth bug. That overwhelming feeling of wanting to sit by a warm fire with hot cocoa and a crisp snowy breeze flowing.

If you can’t seem to escape the need to have as beautiful of an outdoor area in the winter as you do during the summertime, then now is the time to upgrade to your Winter Oasis! Here are a few ideas to help you choose what you need for this project.

The Main Area

First things first, you need to consider where you will want the bulk of your sitting to be. Snow is the main concern, so having a nice, covered patio area will be the best place to start. Your covered patio can be an extension of your existing porch or even an area of your yard that is separate from your home. You can choose from many options, from classic brick columns, farmhouse-style tin roofs, open concepts, or an accent wall with a German Smear. Whatever you like!

A must-have for this area is a heated flooring system. With the cold snow falling and cool air, you will want a nice warm floor. Choosing a system like this can also be wonderful for melting away unwanted snow around your sitting area.

The Fire Element

When you picture yourself sitting by a toasty fire, are you sitting around a stone fire pit or a dark brick fireplace? (Let me add here – you can absolutely have the best of both worlds in your Oasis!) This decision does affect your patio area, as it may be best to have an uncovered patio if you choose to install a fire pit for safety reasons. A fire pit is perfect for large crowds to gather around if you are a big entertainer type.

Outdoor Living

If you’re looking for a more traditional style, a fireplace offers plenty of luxurious feels and can be added to the side of your outdoor patio or even your existing sitting area. Fireplaces are the perfect personal touch that is for the more intimate gatherings but still great for entertaining!

Additional Outdoor Options

Other outdoor additions that can make your Winter Wonderland complete are endless. Small fire pit columns along walkways or around the seating area can bring a touch of effortless luxury. Lighting design concepts can be the extra touch that really brings your area together! Maybe you would prefer an outdoor sunroom with window walls and all the nature-loving aspects.
