When it comes to investing in your outdoor space, you want to ensure your hard work and appliances do not go to waste. Whether you live in a steadier climate or experience all four seasons throughout the year, taking steps to weatherproof your outdoor space, appliances, and accessories is essential. Here are five easy ways to ensure your outdoor space is ready to weather any storm.
Invest in Weatherproof Furniture
Do you want a weather-proof space? Buy weather-proof products. Sounds simple. The easiest way to weatherproof your outdoor space is to invest in furniture designed to withstand the elements mother nature sends out. This includes using wicker, teak, metal, or plastic pieces. Not only are these materials durable and long-lasting, but they can also add to the aesthetic of your space. If you already have outdoor furniture that is not weatherproof, you can use sealants and weatherproofing sprays such as Scotchgard Outdoor Water Shield to protect your furniture.
Install an Outdoor Canopy or Awning
Another great way to weatherproof your outdoor space is to install a canopy or awning. It provides users with a comfortable spot to cool off on those hot days, but they also help shield your outdoor area during harsh weather conditions. It also opens a more open space for gatherings and parties. With a canopy, you can create a welcoming open space for parties and get-togethers. They are versatile and come in various sizes, shapes, and colors. An awning can also cover your appliances when they are not in use. Although we recommend that you protect your grill with a tarp when not in use, a canopy or awning can help offer additional protection from external elements.
Add Shelters and Shade Structures
On the topic of the different types of shelters, adding an arbor, trellis, or pergola can help create a space. With these items, you can get creative with setting up your outdoor space and how it distributes shade. Arbors and trellises can help house any climbing plants and vines, which can provide shade and add to the aesthetics of your space, while pergolas can provide users with coverage designed to help suit your outdoor space.
Use Outdoor Rugs and Cushions
They don’t just add to the pretty aesthetic of your space but outdoor rugs and cushions are a great way to add style and protection to your outdoor space. With having them, you can get protection from shallow waters and UV rays coming from the sun while also adding a touch of beauty to the area.
Invest in Weatherproof Lighting
Weather-proof lighting can help you enjoy your outdoor space for all 24 hours of the day. They can also help in the event of having to do maintenance during those cloudy days and dark hours, making it easy to find any loose parts.
Bonus!: Take care of your appliances!
Just like the beginning of this post, it is simple! By taking an interest in protecting your investment, you are prolonging the life of your outdoor products. Doing things like sealing your countertops, covering your grill with a tarp or canvas when it is not in use, cleaning your grill regularly, and clearing any debris in the area can help with the upkeep of your outdoor space. We’ve also made a blog post on basic grill maintenance.
