How to comfortably entertain outdoors in the cooler months

Winter’s chill seems to creep up out of nowhere in Australia’s cooler regions. One day you’re outside enjoying the best that the Aussie weather can offer, the next you’re inside huddled under the doona. 

For natural entertainers, this can be a real nuisance. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to ensure you can still enjoy your outdoor area without freezing over it.

Here are a few tips for keeping your entertainment zone warm and dry during the winter months.

Keep sitting spaces dry

It goes without saying, but many homeowners fail to keep their entertainment spaces dry during the wetter months. It is a good idea to have a few practices in place for when things get wild out there.

First, ensure your seating area is protected from the elements. Create a covered outdoor space to ensure that your furniture won’t fall victim to a harsh overnight rain.

If you’re not looking to extend into the garden, at least ensure your valuable furniture is covered with a quality tarp or other protective cover so that when you are ready to entertain you can simply remove it and enjoy a dry seating area.

Roller blinds are an entertainer’s best friend

For an entertainer, there is nothing better than having a charming outdoor area that can be enjoyed in both the summer and winter months. The best way to do this? By installing roller blinds to create a covered, wind-resistant space for year-round enjoyment.

Outdoor blinds are perfect for maintaining a comfortable space: they block out harsh winds and insulate the space they are protecting, allowing for good times to be had regardless of what is happening on the other side of the shelter.

Food, beverage & heat

Appliances are imperative for creating a comfortable entertainment zone for the winter months. By installing things like a hot food and drink station, an outdoor kitchen setup and an outdoor heater, you will be creating a fun, luxurious and social space to be enjoyed regardless of winter’s nasty side.
