Ahh, the iconic North American deck activity: Barbequing! We sure love our barbequed dinners (and lunches, and breakfasts…let’s not limit ourselves!) on the deck, but the barbeque is often an afterthought when it comes to planning your deck. But the design aspect is a discussion for another time. Today the question is not where to but your barbeque, but which should you use?
For a custom built-in barbeque unit, Paul loves Napoleon Grills. When it comes to such an important and frequently-used feature in your yard, you want the best of the best. With a variety of options for a personalized grill, the possibilities are endless, and any chef from weekend hobbyist to gourmet professional can get exactly the features they need. And that’s just the grill. Since these units are installed into a non-combustible enclosure, you’ll get to personalize that too. On “Decked Out“, Paul has matched these units with stone facing, stone counters, and even lit glass for a stunning cooking area that looks as fantastic as it cooks.
For a smaller space investment, Napoleon freestanding grills are no slouch either, and share many of the same options as the built-ins. The team likes to pair them with built-in side tables to expand your work space, and the sleek & stylish look of the grills makes it easy to create a gorgeous barbeque area. In his designs, Paul never lets barbeque placement become an afterthought, and these are grills that you’ll be proud to showcase on your deck.
Grills aren’t the only way to exercise expertise with fire, so it’s only natural that Paul Lafrance Design looks to Classic Fireplace for many of the fire features we use in our projects. Like the Napoleon line of grills, these fireplace solutions have a variety of options that help make every installation unique.
Paul & the crew has loved working with these fine folks on “Decked Out” and “Disaster Decks“, because they are passionate about their products and their clients. It shows not only in their service, but in the very thorough manuals that they provide with their products, which make for a quick installation and a flawless finish. No joke: Nobody wants to lose hours of time trying to interpret obscure instructions, but for some manufacturers, manuals are just an afterthought.
See you next week for another installment in our spotlight series!
