Top 5 ways to get the most out of your outdoor dining area

While there are many things that you can do with your deck or outdoor space one of the biggest concerns is getting the most use out of them possible. Too often we use our decks only during the summer months and even then not for as long as we might like. Here are the top 5 ways to get the most out of your outdoor dining area.

Outdoor Area

Insulation: One of the most obvious ways to get better heat in your outdoor dining area is to have a better insulated space. If you are dealing with a screened in porch area and you still have drafty areas around the footing or heading of your screens you may wish to enclose them slightly. If you can add in physical removable windows to your screened in areas that will definitely help as well.

Radiant Heat: Another one of the top 5 ways to get the most out of your outdoor dining area is to add in some radiant heat. Electric radiant heat devices are a great means to adding in an unobtrusive and highly effective heating device to your porch, patio, or pergola. Another great thing about these electrical radiant heating devices is that they are able to take on as much or as little heat as you are comfortable with. You can amp these devices up for a real high intensity heat or you can keep them slow and low and mellow and only elevate the temperatures a couple of degrees. This added in level of heating ability means that you will be in control of the heating anytime you are using them and you can turn them up or down if you’d like.

Heat Strips: Another similar type of application to the radiant heating devices are these heat strips. These are typically only found indoors but that is the great thing about being able to use them on your deck. Depending on how your deck is lain out, you may actually be able to use these heat strips on your outdoor deck area. If you have some type of enclosure on your deck and if you consider your deck a “bonus room” then using the heat strips out here makes a lot of sense. They work very similar to the radiant heating devices and are there for you on your deck when you need them!

Flexible: Another one of the great ways to bring heat and relaxation to your outdoor heating area is to use what’s known as flexible radiant heating applications. These flexible heating apparatuses are the perfect go-between if you have a large water tank on your porch or some other area that you are trying to keep warm. These flexible applications keep these ancillary areas warm which in turn translates heat to the deck itself.

Spa: A final application to keep the heat in and stave the cold away is to just get a hot tub of some kind. Add it right in to your outdoor dining area!
