With Autumn comes shorter days, cooler weather, and the festive season. Of course, for homeowners, this is the perfect time to revamp their outdoor spaces to make the most out of the wonderful weather, and it is also the time to make some upgrades to the home. Not only does the cool weather make it easier for you to carry out such projects, but getting the patio done quickly will allow you to sit back and relax, enjoying the cool weather in the safety and comfort of your patio and home.
That said, one of the easiest things you can upgrade during this time is to install a fireplace on your patio.
That said, here are the upgrades you can do to your patio if you don't know what to do:
1. Build an Insulated Roof
The most significant upgrade you can make to your patio is to install an insulated roof. This will keep the temperature at a consistent and comfortable level, meaning you can enjoy outdoor activities in the cooler weather without having to worry about the weather spoiling your fun. At the same time, an insulated roof will also keep the rain out, so you can be sure that your patio is going to be nice and dry even if the weather is not so nice, it will also protect the fireplace.
2. Invest in Radiant Heat
If you have the space for it, you can also install our HEATSCOPE® radiant heaters for your patio. This is another big upgrade that not only provides some wonderful heating for your patio but will also keep it from getting too cold in the first place. This Real Infrared - All HEATSCOPE® design radiant heaters produce natural infrared heat in the (fast) mid-wave IR range. This means that the heat feels particularly pleasant and is effective exactly where it is needed – that’s directly under the first layers of skin, but not too deep in the tissue.
3. Upgrade the Lights
Another great way to upgrade your patio is to install some new lights. Not only will the new lights make your patio look great at night, but they will also provide better illumination and allow you to enjoy your patio throughout the evening.
4. Install a Barbecue
The cooler weather is the perfect time to start enjoying BBQs, and your patio is the best place to enjoy them. Install a barbecue on your patio and you can enjoy some great barbecues with friends and family, even in the cooler weather. You could also consider an outdoor kitchen if you want something more.
5. Implement a Fireplace
If your patio is big enough, you could consider installing an outdoor fireplace. Not only will a fireplace in your patio look great, but it will also be a wonderful way to get sheltered from the cold and enjoy a nice fire. You can even install a fireplace that also provides heat in the colder months, allowing you to keep your patio nice and warm even when it is freezing outside.

This will ensure that you have the patio fully ready for the winter, allowing you to enjoy what the season has to offer in the comfort of your patio.
