NatureKast Weatherproof Cabinetry Paul Lafrance Design Team - Brands We Trust

Anyone who’s seen me at work knows that I’m always on the lookout for the next great thing in outdoor living, and let me tell you, a gorgeous low-maintenance outdoor kitchen that doesn’t LOOK low-maintenance is it! As someone who doesn’t have a lot of time to spend refinishing natural wood (who does?!), NatureKast was love at first sight for me.

Picture, if you will, a luxury outdoor kitchen with all the fixings. Beautiful woodgrain texture, rich colour, waterproof cabinets, and a dazzling array of custom inserts & modular conveniences! Now, take away the time and cost of maintaining it and protecting it from the elements. What you have is a game changer! It’s not easy for a company to make one of my wildest design dreams a reality, but NatureKast passes the test with flying colours.

So what’s the story? NatureKast is the brain child of Mike Moras, who had become frustrated with the limitations that come with using natural wood in an outdoor setting. After seeing realistic “stone” panels created using resin and PVC plastics, he got an idea for making moulds from natural wood cabinets. Once Mike had perfected the process, NatureKast was born!

NatureKast has been running out of Ontario since 2015, when a team of Canadian distributors purchased it & moved operations from Florida. From there, they were able to hugely expand their line and offer near-infinite design possibilities for any application you could dream of.

I just love getting to work with local Canadian companies such as NatureKast Weatherproof Cabinetry. There’s a sense of camaraderie and pride that’s hard to find anywhere else. These guys really know what they’re doing and have such incredible passion and energy for their product. I can’t wait to see how they tackle some of my more outlandish requests.

Till next time,

Paul Lafrance

Cabinet Effects – Custom Cabinetry & Woodworking Paul Lafrance Design Team - Brands We Trust

Built-in cabinetry is an essential element to every kitchen and bath renovation. It not only has to hold up to daily use over time but in most cases it’s the face of the design. That’s why Paul prefers to team up with experts like Cabinet Effects when building or renovating custom kitchens and bathrooms.

Cabinet Effects is a custom cabinetry and woodworking company based out of South Western Ontario. They utilize their small but diverse wood shop to build custom cabinets, using high-quality materials and manufacturing techniques that will stand up to everyday use. They are doing their part to protect the environment by using sustainably harvested lumber and only GREENGUARD Certified waterborne stains, undercoats, and lacquers that are a low VOC, HAPS-free formulation that contains no isocyanate or formaldehyde.

When creating a space that is unique to your home and your style, often the generic cabinetry of big box stores falls short and leaves you with the feeling of having settled. When working with Cabinet Effects, you get the personalized touch and expert craftsmanship that comes from a company that values quality and attention to detail. They work with you to create a unique piece/pieces that will suit your lifestyle and complement your design.
