How can you prep your outdoor living space for the cooler fall season? With the right accessories, you can keep your backyard space warm and cozy from sunrise to sunset. Outfit your home pergola and patio for this crisp and enjoyable season with these essentials.
Seal Out Rain & Snow
On gray Denver days, close the louvers on your adjustable pergola to seal out rain, snow, and sleet with the touch of a button. Later on, when the fall sun is shining brightly, reopen louvers and enjoy the fall sun’s luxurious warmth, customizing the angle of pergola louvers to the ideal setting to reduce glare.
Cut Winds with Motorized Pergola Screens
Integrate retractable screens into your custom pergola system’s design, quickly rolling them into place to cut down on frigid winds in the evening hours. Pergola screens also offer added protection from precipitation, keeping you and your family warm and dry.
Relax in Comfort with an Infrared Patio Heater
Incorporate infrared patio heaters, such as those by Infratech Comfort, into your metal frame pergola design. These efficient heaters convert 100% of energy into usable heat. Infrared heaters work like the sun, giving off radiant heat that warms objects directly, making them an ideal outdoor comfort solution.
Cozy Up to the Glow of a Fire Pit
If you favor fanning flames over the invisible warmth of an infrared patio heater, a fire pit may be more your style. Yes, you can put a fire pit under your StruXure aluminum pergola, and today there are more options than ever to choose from. Top your tables with a few tiny models, roll in a portable gas-fueled fire pit table, or pipe in a full-size fire pit beneath your custom pergola. Learn how.
Drape Your Space with Soft, Cuddly Throws and Pillows
Drape your outdoor furnishings with warm, soft throws and pillows in fall colors and themes. Prints with pumpkins and fall leaves are perfect for this time of year, adding function and style well through the Thanksgiving season. Floor and seat cushions provide extra warmth, keeping space between you and cold surfaces.
Keep Your Toes Toasty with an Outdoor Rug
Outdoor rugs are another great addition in colder weather, adding softness, warmth, and color to your outdoor space.
Add Ambiance with Tabletop Lanterns
Dress up tabletops with lanterns, creating an enchanting display with classic candles or high-tech, coloring changing lights.
Indulge In These Fireside Entertainment Necessities
Stash a set of oversized dominoes or checkers nearby. These games are a perfect way to spend time with family or friends, wrapped in a cuddly warm blanket. While you’re socializing, treat yourself to cold weather classics like s’mores, spiced cider, and hot chocolate in insulated thermal mugs.
