It was only a few weeks ago that we started noticing the beginning of fall, but the truth is colder days are coming to stay – at least for the next few months. If the idea of staying inside until spring doesn’t sound that appealing to you, don’t worry, there’s a lot you can do to keep your outdoor space warm this winter.

One of the most obvious options to keep your outdoor patio warm this season is getting a fire pit. Considered the most popular type of outdoor heating, fire pits are portable, easy to use and affordable. Since these are traditionally designed to be situated close to the ground and come in several shapes and materials, they make for a great centerpiece that guests can sit around.

When we think of heating solutions for our indoor space, we usually think of fireplaces – so why wouldn’t they be an option for our outdoor space as well? If you have a small patio, a portable fireplace is a stylish option to keep it warm and cozy during the colder days of the year.

Powered electricity, propane, or natural gas, patio heaters are a great option for smaller outdoor spaces. Not only do they barely take up any room, but a single unit is able to heat up an area of around 25 square feet.
