Whilst snuggling up with a blanket indoors during winter is great, you can easily start to feel cooped up, and honestly, that can become frustrating after a while. You need to get out and enjoy the fresh air!
Spending too much time inside can have a negative effect on your health, and can seriously affect your mood, make you feel anxious and restless among other things.
Taking time to go outside helps expose you to sunlight and fresh air, which is essential for all areas of your health, both physical and mental. So how can you change up your outdoor space to enjoy time outdoors even in cold weather?
Here are a few things you can do to get your outdoor space winter-ready.
1. bring on THE HEAT
While having an indoor heater is great, moving it outside when entertaining is not really an option, not even to mention what a hassle this would be. Invest in a proper outdoor gas heater that effectively heats the entire space (not just the people around it), choose one that is easy to use and safe around children and excited guests.
2. fULLY UPHOLSTERED LOUNGE SUITE
Upgrade your existing lounge suite with a fully upholstered one that can be left outside come rain or shine. With the huge variety of outdoor lounge suites and sofas available you can incorporate any design into your space, whether you love the look of an L-shape or a 2 seater.
3. ADD EXTRA COMFORT
Scatter cushions are great for indoors and outdoors, they tend to make a space feel more inviting and add extra comfort to a sofa. You can now find scatter cushions that are covered with outdoor acrylic fabric, which means that they can be left outside come rain or shine, like these quilted outdoor cushions below.
Don't forget your outdoor space is a extra room so make use of it this winter and enjoy some cosy time outdoors with loved ones.
