We also have two other locations in Roanoke Rapids and Greenville, NC. At Patio and Hearth Shop, we believe that you should be able to enjoy the great outdoors any time of the year. Summer brings long hours of sunshine, giving you more time in the day to be outside. Unfortunately, all of the sunshine also brings some pretty heavy heat, but don't let that keep you stuck inside this summer. There are a lot of different ways to keep cool outdoors, even when the thermometer is reading off the charts. One great way to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors as well as the comfort of the indoors is to turn your deck area into a screened-in porch. You can go an extra step and install a ceiling fan to keep you even cooler. If a screened-in porch isn't in your budget, we totally get it. Instead, use a canopy or a sun umbrella to give yourself some shade. Bring an electric fan outdoors to create a breeze. You can also purchase an inexpensive kiddy pool and dip your toes in the water for a quick cool off while you're outside. To cool down after dinner, enjoy some ice cream or a refreshing margarita on the rocks! Avoid warm drinks like coffee while you're outside. This summer, don't let the heat keep you inside. Lay back on our outdoor furniture and use our creative hacks to keep cool this summer! For all of your outdoor furniture needs in Rocky Mount, NC, stop by one of our Patio and Hearth Shop showrooms.
