Costway Stainless Steel 48,000 BTU Patio Heater

Costway 48000 BTU Patio Standing LP Gas Heater


The biggest challenge when it comes to entertaining (and generally spending time outside) as the temps drop is, well, staying warm. Similar to what you find at restaurants and bars, this high-powered portable patio heater will go a long way in keeping you and your guests toasty on those brisk days. The 48,000 BTU heat output is powerful enough to warm a 15-foot radius, and the temperature control knob makes this unit super simple to use. The classic stainless steel design will fit into pretty much any decor style. Note that you do need to purchase a separate propane tank to operate the heater.

An outdoor rug immediately adds coziness to an outdoor patio and can also serve as a protective barrier between your slippered feet and the cold ground. This water- and fade-resident outdoor area rug has a beige boho pattern that will complement most furniture colors and a sleek profile to fit easily under doorways and tables. The rug comes in a variety of sizes, from 5’x8’ up to 8’10”x12’, so you can find the right fit for your outdoor space. It’s also super easy to clean — a must for no-fuss entertaining or households with little ones — by spraying down with a hose for general debris and spot cleaning for tougher stains.
