There are a few weeks left in summer, but it’s not too early to think about fall. If you start now, you will have an easier time transitioning your outdoor spaces.
Seasonal transitions bring fresh excitement and the opportunity to renew the spaces where we live and relax. Your outdoor living space where you’ve enjoyed the warmth of summer, can be transformed into a cozy retreat that embraces the fall season. Here’s a guide on how to make that transformation seamless, maximizing your outdoor living space for autumnal enjoyment. Read on for some suggestions from DealDash.
Swap the Fabrics
First up is fabrics. Summer’s bright and light fabrics can be replaced with warm, textured materials like flannel or wool. Autumn-themed cushions and throws add comfort and seasonal flair. Consider embracing the earthy tones of autumn, like browns, oranges, reds, and golds, that provide a stark contrast to summer’s vibrant hues.
Adapt the Lighting
Next, while soft fairy lights may have illuminated your summer evenings, the fall calls for the addition of lanterns or a fire pit to create a warm, cozy glow. This can make those earlier sunsets feel more inviting and prolong your outdoor enjoyment.
Adjust the Furniture
Summer’s lightweight furniture, easy to move and ideal for lounging, may not be suitable for the cooler weather. Consider adding some heavier pieces made of wood or metal that will withstand the chilly autumn evenings. A strategically placed outdoor heater or fireplace can keep everyone warm and extend your time outside.
Embrace Seasonal Plants and Dining
Transitioning from blooming summer flowers to potted mums, pumpkins, or gourds can change the atmosphere significantly. Adding evergreen shrubs ensures greenery throughout the colder months. And while summer may have been about casual BBQs, fall is an opportunity to upgrade your outdoor dining setup. Hearty fall meals can be enjoyed outside with weather-resistant tableware that complements the season.
Add Cozy Touches
Introduce soft blankets, outdoor rugs, and pillows to add comfort and warmth to your outdoor space. Transitioning from water-based summer games to a horseshoe pit or bocce can keep the outdoor fun alive. If you have a fire pit, a nice stack of firewood can become both a functional and decorative element.

Prepare for Weather Changes
Finally, while summer’s design may be open and airy, fall requires some shelter from unexpected rain or wind. Consider a gazebo or outdoor umbrella to keep everyone comfortable. An autumn-inspired centerpiece with leaves, pine cones, and candles can set the right tone and make a beautiful addition to your outdoor living space.
