Just because the weather is cooling down doesn’t mean you have to move your entertaining and outdoor living indoors! There are plenty of ways you can take full advantage of your Central Texas outdoor deck in the cooler seasons; gather some inspiration from our top ideas below!
The first thing that comes to mind when spending time outdoors in the fall is how to regulate the temperature. Depending on where you live, autumn may be rather mild, or it may already be snowing. Either way, adding a heat source is not only a beautiful focal point for the outdoor space, but a practical one too. Of course, there are plenty of heating options available:
To help contain that heat and provide protection against the fall weather elements, consider adding a pergola. Although the fall weather is a perfect excuse to add a pergola to your deck, the benefits of pergolas last year-round. Pergolas give your deck a more room-like feel, shade it from the sun, and can provide the perfect place for landscaping to thrive.
Wood is the best material to use in pergolas, which means they are extremely low maintenance; all that is required is to stain the wood every few years. Not only will the wood stain provide beautiful and lasting color, but it protects the wood from premature decay. Simply select the color that best compliments your deck and outdoor space.
After the daylight savings change, it gets dark incredibly early. Instead of staying indoors, add a variety of outdoor lighting so you can enjoy your deck no matter the level of darkness.
With a few minutes of planning, your deck can be used the entire year! If you’re ready to add a deck to your space, give Austex a call. We offer complimentary consultations and look forward to hearing about your project.
