Create a Cozy Fall Outdoor Living Space Perfect For Outdoor Gatherings

San Antonio Gazebo Construction

Just because it's autumn doesn't mean the party has to come indoors.

Temperatures are — finally! — going down, and the leaves are turning oranges, reds, and browns. Winter will be here soon, but there's still plenty of time to enjoy your outdoor living space like your custom deck. You can even continue to host outdoor gatherings, bringing family and friends over to a cozy outdoor space that you curated for yourself. An autumnal deck has different needs than a summer deck, however. Here are a few suggestions to create a cozy outdoor living space.

Install a Gazebo

While fall weather can be crisp, colorful, and stunning, it can also be temperamental. Even in San Antonio, autumn rain storms are a thing, and no one wants their outdoor gathering to be rained out. That's why it helps to have a shelter — that doesn't require going right back into the house. A gazebo could be the perfect solution. With a solid, and aesthetically pleasing, roof, you and your guests can wait out the rain without getting soaked. You can even decorate your gazebo with lights or comfortable furniture to keep it so cozy people might flock to it even on dry days.

Invest in a Hot Tub

Though nights might be cooler, you can stay warm with a hot tub. And even on warmer autumn nights, a hot tub will make your deck the place to be. Modern hot tubs include comfortable features like therapy pillows, bluetooth audio systems to set a soundtrack to the night, and multiple jets to customize your comfort. A hot tub is the perfect way to bring family and friends together and to make sure your outdoor living space is the place to go, both in the fall and throughout the year.

Decorate with Deck Furniture

Now it's time to add in the cozy element. You should be able to lounge comfortably on your deck in furniture that makes you feel warm and at home. Make sure to have plenty of seating such as chairs and outdoor sofas. You'll want to be sure that the material you use is hardy enough to withstand the elements. Teak or wicker are popular choices, as well as sturdy canvas upholstery. A few pillows will add to the cozy factor, as well as a small table where you can enjoy a nice glass of wine or a warm cup of coffee. You may want a throw blanket to keep yourself warm on autumn nights, but you should bring it inside or tuck it away in a storage bin when you're not using it, to protect it from storms and outdoor elements.

When it comes to creating a cozy fall outdoor living space, it helps to have a contractor who can give you a truly custom deck, fitting your practical and aesthetic needs. Contact Paradise Decks & Spas today for more information or check out our showroom for inspiration.
