6 spaces to transform with outdoor heating​

When you think of overhead outdoor heating, you might immediately go to the outdoor dining areas of bars, restaurants, and cafes. In fact, there are spaces in your very home that can be transformed with a bit of overhead heating – from inner-city apartment balconies to converted garage workshops.

With easy installation, spaces that are often left neglected in the colder months gain a whole new life with the right heating solution and become trans-seasonal sanctuaries that can be enjoyed day or night; rain or shine. 

We’ve put together a list of spaces to transform with Ambe outdoor heating – so that when the sun goes down – the night lives on.

If you’re like us, you have memories of parents and grandparents enjoying a cup of tea on the patio when you arrive – as if they were waiting for you out there.  It’s a tradition we acknowledge generations later, but it can often be fleeting when the weather turns.

Create a weatherproof space right on your doorstep by installing an Ambe outdoor heater.  The subtle design of the Midnight Series works seamlessly with any décor – you’d barely know they were there if not for the luxurious heat radiating from them.  What better way to welcome friends and family into your home than with some warm hospitality

2. Your Apartment Balcony

Apartment living is an increasingly popular way of life, particularly in large cities.

However, living in large buildings can often feel a little closed off from the outdoors making it even more important to make the most of what is usually the only outdoor space – the balcony.

Apartment balconies can be tricky spaces to work with, often being small, awkwardly shaped, and limited by council restrictions – there are not a lot of options when it comes to outdoor heating.

 That’s why Ambe Electric outdoor heaters are such a great solution; they’re safe and easy to install and they take up the space above.

Opt for the Ambe Sunset Series for protection from the weather; these heaters are built for harsh conditions, plus they radiate a warm glow that illuminates your space (like a sunset)

3. The Veranda

Veranda’s come in all shapes and sizes, from the modern Apex design to grand gabled roofs and the classic flat roof wrap around.  Designed to extend the living space and provide a sheltered outdoor area to watch the world go by. But while many houses come with a veranda of some description – they don’t come with heating.

Enter the Ambe Midnight Series. Installed overhead, these heaters are the unsung heroes – heating your space without making a song and dance about it.

With a sleek black aesthetic, they don’t interfere with that traditional veranda look.  All that’s left now is to settle in an afternoon waiting patiently for the postie.

4. The Outdoor Kitchen

There’s nothing like socialising with friends and family in the backyard. If you’re serious about backyard entertaining you’ve probably gone to the trouble of setting up a fully equipped outdoor kitchen. 

Outdoor Kitchens are a great addition to any backyard, especially if you love to host a crowd. But without the right heating, the hours of entertaining can be short-lived with the cold air shutting down the party before it really got started. 

Ambe’s Sunset Series of infrared heaters are the perfect solution. Installed overhead, they create an instant heat that warms you and your mates directly– so the beers and banter can go on well into the night.

5. The Workshop or Art Studio

If you’ve converted your garage into a workshop or art studio – you probably know that poor insulation makes it difficult to heat with most plug-in heaters. Not only do they get in the way of your equipment, but they also tend to be inefficient with most of the heat being lost before it gets to you.

Ambe’s Sunset Series infrared heaters are installed overhead, so they don’t interfere with your work. They heat up instantly and warm you directly – rather than faffing around heating the air around you.

So, you don’t need to worry about preheating your space before getting stuck in your projects – you can get to work the moment the inspiration takes you.

6. The (Wo)man Cave

We all wish we could spend longer in the Man Cave, or She Shed. It’s a space we create where can take some time out.

We fill it with things that make us feel good – pool tables, widescreen TVs, bar carts, and old record players. But much like the converted garage workshop, these spaces can be difficult to heat.

That’s where the Ambe Midnight Series saves the day again, filling the space with invisible heat.  Better yet, with remote control and a digital display, there’s no need to step away from the footy game to adjust the temperature – you can bring the heat, and keep an eye on it, without moving an inch.


Whatever space you’re trying to heat, Ambe has a solution for you. You’re getting warmer, shop the outdoor range.
