Transform Your Backyard This Winter

Let’s face it, winter can be a challenging season (force yourself) to go outside and enjoy your backyard - especially in Melbourne. 

However, with a few small tweaks and additions, your backyard can be transformed into a cosy and inviting space all year round. 

In this article, we will discuss some essential backyard upgrades that will make your outdoor area more usable this winter…

Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting is a necessity for using your space all year round. It creates a warm and inviting ambiance while also providing safety and security. 

In winter, the days are shorter, and it gets darker earlier. Adding some outdoor lighting will allow you to enjoy your backyard well into the evening. 

You can use string lights, lanterns, or even install permanent fixtures that will illuminate your outdoor area.

Sensor Lighting

Sensor lighting is amazing for the winter months when you need to pop outside or unlock or lock up the house. 

It will turn on automatically when someone approaches and then turn off when the person moves away. 

This is especially useful for convenience and safety when you have your hands full coming home at night, and you don't want to fumble around in the dark trying to find your keys to open the door.

Outdoor Heaters

Outdoor heaters are essential to ensure your outdoor space can be used even in the cold winter. 

They come in various styles, including gas, electric, and wood-burning. 

Gas heaters are easy to use and can be turned on with a flick of a switch, while electric heaters are convenient and can be used both indoors and outdoors. 

Wood-burning heaters provide a cosy and rustic feel, but they require more maintenance and may pose a safety risk if you have young children.

Weatherproof Outdoor Power Points

Weatherproof outdoor power points are essential for plugging in portable outdoor heaters and any other outdoor appliances. 

They provide a safe and convenient power source for your outdoor area. 

It's essential to get reliable outdoor power points installed for winter to ensure they don't get damaged by the harsh weather conditions.

Motorised Outdoor Blinds

Motorised outdoor blinds provide insulation in outdoor areas from the elements, so you can use your space in all weather conditions. 

They can be controlled remotely, making it easy to adjust the amount of light and heat that enters your outdoor area. 

Motorised blinds also provide privacy and shade, making your outdoor area more comfortable and enjoyable.
