Patio Design Tips

For Businesses

Why a winter patio?! Patios are a key way to add vibrancy to our city and help support the prosperity of businesses in winter. Even just putting out a few chairs, tables, and colourful blankets will catch people’s eyes. Start small and see how many customers accept your invitation!

Need some ideas for how to extend your patio season? Check out our new Four Season Patio Design Tips! Many thanks go to Emma Sanborn, a graduate of the Luleå University of Technology Master’s programme in Climate Sensitive Urban Planning, for helping us to create this great tip sheet.

Chez Vous

Why not create your own winter patio at home? We get lots of beautiful sunny days in the winter. The tip sheet has ideas that will work in your yard, too. Find a sheltered spot, dig out your deck chairs, grab your woolly blankets, and enjoy a hot drink while basking in the sunshine.

We also have spectacular Northern Lights at night. Enjoy a mulled wine under nature’s light show, snuggled up in a blanket by your backyard fire. You could even add some fairy lights to make your winter yard sparkle.
