|Just because summer has ended doesn’t mean you should wait until next year to use your deck. In fact, if you thought your deck was a great place to be while summer was still around, wait until you get a feel of that crisp, fall breeze. There is a lot to do during the fall season, which makes it all the more important to prepare your deck.
Swap Out The Furniture
The first thing to do when transitioning your deck to fall is to replace the furniture. It’s time to store the lounge chairs and parasols. You don’t have to completely change out entire pieces of furniture to transition your deck nor sacrifice comfort.
There are plenty of things you can do such as simply adding new cushioning that resistant to the harsh weather conditions that are to come. Keep in mind that as you transition your deck for the fall season, you’re also preparing for winter.
Summer is the only time of year where the sun stays out during the evening, which almost eliminates the need for lighting. However, fall is a different story as the sun tends to disappear earlier than usual. As such, you’ll need to incorporate a bit of lighting if you intend to use your deck during the evening. You can add torches, lanterns or even a motion sensor porch light. Don’t let the lack of sunlight keep you from enjoying the evening, especially when the crisp, fall breeze is at its best during this time.
Add New Decor
Nothing can help you transition your deck than adding some brand new fall decor. From a scarecrow to a pine-cone wreath to the pumpkin sign that says “Welcome”, there are almost limitless options when it comes to decorating for fall.
Fall is going to be around for quite some time, so take as much time as you need to figure out what would go great with your deck. But don’t take too long as fall can come and go just like summer.
Add a New Deck
For those who don’t have a deck, you should seriously consider building one. Not only does it allow you to relax and enjoy the season of fall, it also helps increase the resale value of the house. Adding a new deck is also a good idea for people who have a family because it’s another place for your children to play.
