As the warmer weather nears, we can't help but look forward to spending more time outside. Whether it's enjoying a leisurely breakfast with the weekend paper in the morning or barbecuing at night, your outdoor area is a great way of extending your traditional living space outside. While there may be closures and limited access to parks and outdoor excursions in Ontario, you can find some solace in your outdoor space.

Over the next few weeks on the blog, we will be sharing some of our past outdoor projects that create a setting with that special atmosphere of being outdoors, but with all the indoor style and comfort our clients love. First up, we are featuring enclosed, three-season areas that embrace the outdoors with the help of window systems, exterior pocket doors, retractable screens, and folding glass walls.

Retractable (Phantom) Screen Benefits:

  • Insect Protection

  • Privacy

  • Better Ventilation

  • Motorized options so that your screen can operate with the touch of a button

  • Reduces solar heat gain on the inside of the home and decrease energy costs for cooling

  • Pocket Door

Bi-Fold Glass Wall/Door Benefits:

  • Flexibility - You can open into or out of a room and fold to the left or right

  • Ample amount of natural light

  • Opens up your home and increases your living space without compromising the unique spaces

  • Aesthetically appealing

Exterior Pocket Door Benefits:

  • Easily concealed when open

  • Saves more wall space than a swinging or folding door

Three-Season Window Systems:

  • Combines the breezy, open-air feeling of a screen room with the comfort, convenience and safety of an enclosed porch

  • Units are easy to move up or down (or right or left depending on your selection)

  • Made with ViewFlex vinyl, which is more durable than glass

If any of these spaces catch your eye or spark inspiration, feel free to contact us and we can start planning your outdoor oasis together.
