Playsets, Pools and Patios… What’s the Next Pandemic Must-Have for Your Home?

Still can’t find paper towels at your local Target? Me neither. The pandemic has caused many everyday items that we take for granted to literally fly off the shelves.

We saw it this summer with playsets and trampolines, but the craze for outdoor enjoyment extended beyond kids’ play equipment to the outdoor assets a residential property boasted, including pools and patios. What could possibly be the next must-have to make your stay-at-home experience more tolerable this winter?

Fire Pits

Those looking to continue using their outdoor spaces will need to seek out warmth in some form. As long as it is coming from the soothing crackle of a wood-burning fire pit or a gas-powered flame — not body heat less than 6 feet away — you will be in good company. These houses are ready for outdoor entertaining on any starry quarantine night:
