We know that the Canadian weather system can surprise us at any time – from scorching hot days to chilly stormy nights. Having a covered patio will literally have you covered this summer. Without a covered patio, you are limited in the amount of time you can spend outdoors. A covered patio can allow you to enjoy those rainy days outside. Go the extra mile by installing some aesthetic hanging lights.
A great way to enhance your patio is by upgrading your summer patio furniture to include dining. This doesn’t have to be a full dining table with chairs and so on. But the addition of even a coffee table that allows you to enjoy a meal outside is a good start. If you’re looking for ways to incorporate dining furniture without taking up too much space, you can add a table with a bench and chairs for example. This way the bench can be tucked under the table when not in use. Alternatively, you can add folding tables which can be easily stored. Outdoor entertaining is popular during the summer months and this can ensure everyone will be comfortable.
A fire pit will allow you to enjoy your patio on those colder nights and even allow for some late-night s’mores and outdoor cooking. Whether you decide to go with an all-natural wood burning fire pit or install a propane fire table, both will do the trick. A fire pit will also allow you to extend your patio season late into the fall, and even maybe some winter nights.
Outdoor Kitchen & Bar
To limit the amount of back and forth from the patio to the inside, which can track dirt and bugs into your home, consider installing an outdoor kitchen and bar. Depending on the space available this could be something as simple as a mini-fridge with a sink. If you have more space, you can extend it to a grill with counter space and storage. Either way, having food and drink storage outside is a game changer.
What better way to enjoy your new dining furniture, fire pit, and fridge than cooking your own pizza right on your patio? With a range of sizes, you can truly enjoy your patio this summer with the addition of a pizza oven. Pizza ovens are great for cooking pizza and much more, plus they are an excellent conversation piece.
