10 Ways to Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space Through the Winter Months

The weather may be getting colder, but that doesn’t mean the good times on the backyard patio and in the swimming pool need to come to an end. All Seasons, a top pool builder in Orlando, presents a list of 10 ways you can keep your swimming pool and outdoor living space fun even during the fall and winter months:


1. Bring On the Heat

Adding a heat source is one sure way to create an inviting outdoor space for yourselves and guests to enjoy. Choose from tabletop designs or full-sized patio and deck heaters to add both warmth and ambiance to The Villages swimming pool and patio areas.

Perhaps you could even add a pool heater to keep your swimming pool nice and warm no matter the weather. We carry energy-efficient pool heaters that will provide unlimited fun without adding much to your energy bill.


2. Create Fire

A heat source may make the area warm, but swimming pool fire features are what will draw friends and family members outdoors. From simple firepits and ornate firebowls to stately fireplaces, Orlando and St. Augustine homeowners can pick and choose the features they want to create the backyard atmosphere they desire.


3. Dress It Up

Adding a bit of wintry décor is a great way to add some flair to your swimming pool and patio area, even if you aren’t outdoors. Choose a selection of staple winter items that continue to be in season even after the holidays come to an end, such as decorative wreaths and fern trees, and place them around your swimming pool and backyard patio.


4. Light Up the Orlando Night

Lighting is a must if you want to create a welcoming outdoor living space. Strings of white LED lights are an economical way to add some extra twinkle to your backyard, though there are a number of other options including pathway lights, pot lights, and more. We can show you some amazing Hayward LED custom lighting options at our pool supply and design center.


5. Change Your Swimming Pool Water Color

Darkness comes sooner during the Orlando and Sanford winter nights, which can make the pool and hot tub appear rather dark and dreary. If you change out your standard bulbs with some bright and festive color LED lights, it’ll be hard for friends and family to resist taking a dip.


6. Cover the Patio

Not only are exposed patios during the winter subject to increased wear and tear, but covering the patio or creating an enclosure will create a warmer breeze-free spot for everyone to lounge and enjoy. Talk to your Orlando pool builder about the best swimming pool enclosures.


7. Make it Cozy

Typical plastic patio chairs and loungers may suffice during the Florida summer, but in the winter when it’s already difficult to beckon others outdoors, it’s all the more important that you add plush outdoor pillows, throws, or even completely replace the outdoor furniture on your patio and around the pool and hot tub area. The right furniture can make Orlando and Sanford backyards cozy all year round.


8. Add Outdoor Entertainment

Some Orlando homeowners may choose to install a television outdoors, though for those of us who haven’t, you can create your very own projection screen and watch shows and movies outdoors and under the stars. All you need is a projector, a white shower curtain, a wood frame and a staple gun and you’re set!


9. Create a Coffee, Tea and Hot Chocolate Bar

If you already have an outdoor kitchen, this will be simple to create. For those who don’t, you can build your own and make it as basic (such as placing a hot plate with a kettle on a table outside) or complex as you wish to match your outdoor décor. 


10. Throw a Party

What’s the point of a beautiful Orlando outdoor space if you don’t show it off and entertain friends and family! Come by today to browse all the options we have to help you create a breathtaking, fun, or casual outdoor living area.
