Key Features for Outdoor Living Spaces


At Ultimate Renovations, we understand that every home is unique. Our design savants are at the top of their class when it comes to creating opulent home escapes to suit the desires of our clients. But what are some of the key features that tie things together for every outdoor living space? Let’s explore below. 


Motorized Screens


One of the key features of any outdoor living space is the ability to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine without having to worry about bugs, wind, and other elements. Motorized screens are an excellent solution to this problem. With the touch of a button, you can lower or raise the screens, providing an instant barrier against insects, wind, and even rain. This means that you can enjoy your outdoor living space even on days when the weather is less than perfect.


Motorized screens are also highly customizable, with a range of options available to suit your specific needs. For example, you can choose from different fabrics and materials to create a screen that is much more than just functional. Our beautiful designs and materials ensure that these screens are also a wonderful sight and a genuine compliment to your home, enhancing other outdoor living space features. In addition, these screens can be fitted to almost any space, making them an ideal solution for any outdoor living area.

Wood Burning Fireplaces

Few things are more relaxing than sitting by a crackling fire on a cool evening, which perhaps is why wood-burning fireplaces are a staple in most backyards. But we’re not just talking about the average firepit: our wood-burning fireplaces are carefully designed to add class and functionality to your home. The ambient light and comforting warmth that only a wood fire can provide is sure to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere, essential for entertaining guests or unwinding in private.


At Ultimate Renovations, we offer a range of wood-burning fireplaces that are designed specifically for outdoor use. These fireplaces are made from high-quality materials and are built to withstand the elements, ensuring that they will provide many years of enjoyment and relaxation while maintaining a beautiful aesthetic.


Outdoor Gas or Electric Heaters

Although our fireplaces are an essential focus point for outdoor living, their warmth only goes so far— and in our chilly Canadian climate, it is essential to have the right heating to make the most of our outdoor spaces.


When the weather starts to cool down, gas or electric heaters are a great way to extend your outdoor living season. These heaters come in a wide variety of styles to accent your space while providing warmth and comfort. The right outdoor heating appliances allow you to continue enjoying your outdoor space with ease, even when the temperatures drop. They are also extremely versatile and can be used in a wide range of settings. 


At Ultimate Renovations, we offer only top-of-the-line outdoor heating and cooling solutions. For the epitome of comfort, style, and functionality, you can trust our experienced outdoor living experts to deliver the best in heating solutions.
