You may have heard the phrase “winter is coming.” Well, winter is here – but spring is also coming soon. It’s never too early to start making plans for your outdoor living space. One of the most interesting ways to do this is to upgrade your outdoor kitchen. Warmer weather can make it more tempting to spend more time on your deck so let’s talk about ways to get it ready for the spring – when hopefully larger gatherings will become a fun bonding experience again!
Clean Up Your Patio Furniture
Your patio furniture will give you a nice place to lounge and relax. This past year, you probably did spend some time on your patio to get some fresh air and not feeling so trapped inside your home all season long. So, this means that you’ve got to spend some time cleaning up your patio furniture. Uncover all of it and get rid of accumulated dust. Then grab the hose to blast away any dirt or grit that you see. Look into installing a pergola over your patio and replace the throw pillows and living plants that you had there before.
Focus on the Outdoor Kitchen
The outdoor kitchen is probably going to be a gathering place for everyone you want to spend time with during the spring of 2021. With that in mind, do what you can to prepare all of the necessary elements that make a kitchen operate smoothly. In this case, the BBQ grill is going to need some love. The grill needs to be cleaned out – it might be a chore to do this every time you are done with it but it can help prevent the grill from becoming a fire hazard. Plus, the food you cook on it will taste much better!
Sweep the Debris Off of the Pavers
Dust and debris can ruin the looks of your once beautiful paver patio. Fierce winter storms can make this situation even worse. Be careful when shoveling away snow and scraping off the ice – you might damage the pavers by accident! Even so, this tedious task is necessary if you want to ensure that your outdoor living space is ready to go in time for March, April, and May. However, if you are not particularly excited about doing this, then you can wait until late February to begin taking care of it.
