Decked Out Season Four The Privacy Deck & The Stainless Mesh Deck

Decked Out Season Four – The Privacy Deck & The Stainless Mesh Deck

We’d like to invite you to come on by our gallery for a closer look at the final two projects of season 4 of “Decked Out“! On these projects, Paul put some cool new materials to the test to create stunningly unique outdoor spaces.

“The Privacy Deck” features arched polycarbonate coverings that provide shade and shelter but let in lots and lots of light for a bright and welcoming oasis. Plus, cool motorized bug screening on the lower level lets the homeowners choose their level of exposure at the touch of a button!

And living up to its name, “The Stainless Mesh Deck” features lots of gorgeous custom woven steel mesh! Privacy screens, pergolas, and even furniture. How comfortable can steel be? As it turns out: Pretty darn comfortable!

Firetainment Paul Lafrance Design Team - Brands We Trust

Firetainment – Brands We Trust

Have we got a sizzler for you today! If you love to entertain, this one’s right up your alley. Firetainment tables combine the inviting warmth of a fire feature with an outdoor cooking zone. When Paul first saw one, he was blown away. It was a match made in deck design Heaven!

How does it work? Easy – the specially designed burner assembly creates an even flame perfect for food preparation. Firetainment units run using a 20 pound propane tank, or can be connected to a gas line from your home, just like a barbeque. The included fire glass not only beautifies the fire pan, but reflects heat & light, maximizing your gas usage. And of course, it’s food safe and won’t give off any toxic fumes, melt or break down in any way. A variety of accessories, including griddles, woks and fondue sets open up all kinds of entertainment options. Cooking mounts hold your cooking surface (or cradle your fondue bowl) steadily at the perfect distance from the fire, and glass wind guards keep the fire steady even on a breezy evening.

Of course, that’s not all there is to it. Function is vital, but how does it make you feel? Fortunately, Firetainment has you covered. These fire tables are stunningly beautiful, with dozens of possible design combinations. You can choose between the shape, size and colour of the beautiful granite table, and pick between a 21” and 24” table height, as well as the colour of your fire glass and the powder-coated base. This is an eye-catching deck feature and a beautiful conversation table whether lit or unlit.

A product that can so elegantly bring together a table surface, a fire feature and a cooking station into a single well-designed unit is a rare find. Firetainment has become Paul’s go-to product to incorporate into his outdoor living space designs. Tune in to “Decked Out” to see these cool features incorporated into his decks! Also, check out more of what Firetainment has to offer.

New Trend Corporation Paul Lafrance Design Team - Brands We Trust

New Trend Corporation – Brands We Trust

A little metal can go a long way in bringing a sense of classic refinement into your space. From cut metal privacy screens, to decorative iron inserts, to balusters for deck railings, Paul keeps coming back to New Trend Corporation’s diverse selections.

Another Canadian company, New Trend Corporation’s specialty is fencing, but that doesn’t mean they don’t do great things for your deck. Thanks to the well-designed versatility of their products, the sky’s the limit when Paul starts dreaming up new ways to use them! Whenever Paul wants to spice up a privacy barrier with a cool metal insert, this is the company that we turn to first. Their laser-cut metal screens are powder-coated and resistant to rust, and have a ten year guarantee. They’ll even do custom work if we need an extra-unique touch! Nice.

Glass railings & balusters are a slick and ultra-modern choice for your deck railings, but that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with a more classic look. New Trend Corporation creates metal balusters as well, in a variety of shapes & styles, from classic to contemporary. They’ve supplied us with everything from traditional wrought iron single balusters (for the ultimate in custom installation) to quick-to-install panels created to incorporate into both deck and stair railings. You never want to ruin a gorgeous deck with an eyesore of a railing. It needs to complement and heighten the beauty of your family’s home oasis, and remain strong for years to come, making New Trend Corporation a great choice.

With products appearing on a number of episodes of HGTV’s “Decked Out” and “Disaster Decks“, & with more to come, New Trend Corporation is here to stay on our list of top suppliers.

Tune in next week for the latest on a fantastic new fire feature that’s cozy…and delicious. We’ll tell you why on our next “We <3 It!” Wednesday.

Liv Outdoor Paul Lafrance Design Team - Brands We Trust

Liv Outdoor – Brands We Trust

Liv Outdoor. The details can take a deck from nice to stunning, so today we’re going to talk about some of our favourite “deckcessories” for getting the job done.

On almost all of our “Decked Out and “Disaster Decks” projects, you’ve seen our crew use hidden deck clips that minimize the need for unsightly screws. Tiger Claw fasteners are some of the best, and the handy clip gun makes decking a breeze to boot. When we do use screws, we want them to be as hidden as possible. With more than a dozen colour coating options available, you’ll be sure to find a Starborn screw to fit your material.

Exotic materials can also add that extra ‘zing’ to your deck’s look and feel, like bamboo accents or exotic hardwoods. Liv Outdoor is a leading importer of hardwood decking, and Paul has created amazing decks using their gorgeous rich red balau. To retain its rich colour, exotic hardwood needs to be treated every year or two, or it can be allowed to fade to a cool silver. With a little extra care and maintenance, exotic hardwood will last a lifetime.

Got a tall deck? Liv Outdoor has you covered with railings, too, in a variety of systems. Want it customized? No problem – you can pick and choose between a variety of picket styles, complete railing systems, and even different approaches to the always ultra-slick glass railings. For the ultimate in unobstructed view, we especially love the Invisirail system. The strong tempered glass is designed with safety in mind and can install on any rail post you build. For a truly invisible look, we like to use the matching Invisiposts, which are the smallest profile rail post on the market today.

See you next week for another spotlight in our series! In the meantime, check out some cool projects featuring Liv Outdoor products.

AWE East Paul Lafrance Design Team - Brands We Trust

AWE East – Brands We Trust

Spring is on the way! Soon it’ll be warm enough to lounge outside on a sunny lazy Sunday…but what about when the summer scorchers come? You don’t need to schedule your relaxation around the weather or intensity of the sun. For us, that’s where AWE East comes in.

Because so few of us can pick up and leave for a stress-free week of vacation, it’s important for your yard to offer as many of the comforts of vacation as possible. That means versatility, so you can modify your space to fit your mood and schedule. Many of us have limited space, so areas that can do double-duty as both a sheltered lounge and a place to sunbathe are incredibly valuable. By day, you can extend the awning over your hot tub to enjoy an early afternoon soak in the shade, and retract it later on to enjoy the evening sky. Talk about versatile!

Paul has used AWE East ShadeFX canopies on a number of projects on “Decked Out” and “Disaster Decks”, creating customizable shelter for a variety of clients to fit their lifestyles. For the more modest budget, we’ve used manually retractable awnings which are quick and simple to move. For a flashier solution, we’ve also used motorized canopies for a style that just can’t be beat. They are customizable and made-to-order, for a space of any size or shape. Paul has even been able to incorporate a slick, arched awning for an unbeatable dramatic flair.

Like many of our favourite companies, AWE East is proudly Canadian just like us, and they really “get it” when it comes to knowing the kind of weather resistance Canadians need from their outdoor products. Check out some of the ways Paul has incorporated retractable awnings into projects from “Decked Out”! See you next week for another spotlight! Contact Paul today!
