I know what you are thinking: I live in Canada; why would I care about my patio THIS time of year? Yes. We are in Brampton, ON, and the weather is fiercely frigid this time of year. But, you do not HAVE to remain indoors and throw a cramped New Year’s Eve party, people! You can make your outdoor space fabulous and comfortable—even during the winter.

How, you ask? We will happily help you extend your NYE party to the outdoors with these helpful suggestions from the team here at Brock Doors and Windows! Keep reading!

SUGGESTION #1: Invest in some outdoor heating
There are all sorts of ways to add warmth to your outdoor space so you can get the most out of your patio all year long. Here are some of our best suggestions:

  • Space heaters. These are surprisingly affordable at many hardware stores. Plus, they add a pretty glow to your patio space!
  • Metal fire pit. These above ground little wonders are gorgeous additions to your patio and give off a lot of heat.
  • Heated patio flooring. I remember when this phenomenon first hit the market and I thought I’d died and gone to Heaven! There are all sorts of options, including underground heaters to warm your cement, heated area rugs, and even heated stepping stones.

Suggestion #2: Set the scene

No matter how small or large your outdoor space is, give it a bit of “pop” with colourful table linens, silk flowers/pants (it is wintertime, after all…), and some lanterns. Further, if the lanterns you choose are the kind which holds candles, you’ll be adding to the warmth!

Suggestion #3: Ditch the plastic furniture
Plastic furniture—even the nice stuff—breaks easily in sub-zero temperatures. Sure, it’s less expensive—but it’s cheaper and just doesn’t last in the cold; thus, you end up replacing and spending more than planned. Opt to spend a little more on patio furniture so it lasts and keeps you comfy. Metal furniture with soft, decorative padding is a great option, as are wooden pieces.

Suggestions #4: Choose the right patio door

Insulation is important and so is having an attractive door to add to the ambiance both inside and outside. Here at Brock, we specialize in providing patio doors meant for our unique climate with styles to match any taste. There’s no reason you should have to deal with escaping indoor heat through a sub-par door! Together, we can discuss and bring to life a patio door with options you need all year long:

  • Bronze tint
  • LOF
  • LOE 366
  • Obscure glass (glue chip or frosted)
  • Triple-glazing
  • Argon or Krypton gas filled

Suggestion #5: Add to your future wish-list
No one wants to spend a lot all at once. So, add a few “someday” items to your future projects wish-list:

  • A cozy corner cabana
  • A full-length or partial-patio pergola
  • Screened-in space or a 3-4 season porch

One day, you’ll have the patio space of your dreams. Just take it bit by bit and you’ll get there! And, give Brock Doors and Windows a call when you’re ready to replace your patio door in Brampton, Ontario!
