Alongside its array of fireplace and outdoor grilling options, Napoleon has applied its product and environment design expertise to create a series of design concepts for screened, transitional, and detached outdoor living spaces.

The Inspiration section is guided by third-party research into the connections home owners develop with different areas of their homes, and how those spaces can have a direct impact on emotions.

“The research shows the most loved areas of the home combine relaxation, socialization and functionality,” says Stephen Schroeter, senior vice-president of sales and marketing for Napoleon. “Outdoor spaces provide a great opportunity to accommodate all three, yet they are still vastly underutilized by most homeowners.”

To create the “outdoor oasis of one’s dreams”, Napoleon recommends the following:

Add an Outdoor Kitchen. Outdoor kitchens don’t just meet the “basic need” for food – they also connect the cooking process (and the cook) with the social gatherings they serve. Napoleon recommends the OASIS Outdoor Kitchen series of cooking and storage solutions, with a compatible Presige PRO series grill as the centerpiece. Other considerations include refrigerators, pizza ovens, or outdoor sinks, depending on personal taste.

Establish a Gathering Place. Napoleon recommends creating a central location with an abundance of seating options. A fireplace or fire pit can provide a focal point for this space, and enable its use later into the season.

Create Privacy. Large plants or trees, a pergola, or privacy panels can create the feel of a secluded getaway within an otherwise open space.

Design for All the Senses. Consider every aspect of a guest or home owner’s experience in the outdoor space. Speakers and water features can establish mood and eliminate street noise, while fragrant bushes can provide a sweet scent.

Add Accents. Outdoor living areas are ideal for bold colors, adventurous designs, and other personal touches.
