Selected as the Best in Show grand prize winner in the 2019 Unilock Awards of Excellence competition, this expansive outdoor entertainment space is a homeowner’s dream come to life. From a fully equipped outdoor kitchen, to distinct areas for dining, lounging, sunbathing and cocktail hour mingling, this project truly has it all.
On the patio itself, the homeowner fell in love with Unilock Umbriano in French Grey, which is incorporated at each elevation of this project. Proprietary ColorFusion technology gives this product the look of natural granite through its unique mottled surface, combined with EasyClean technology to help protect from stains, which will be essential during summer barbecue season where spills may occur. Additionally as an EnduraColor product, Umbriano pavers have a refined surface that is protected from the appearance of fading, ensuring a long-lasting product all year round.
But the surprises don’t end there! Unilock Lineo Dimensional Stone in Granite, combined with a dark accent band of Midnight Charcoal contributed to many of the vertical elements located around this outdoor entertainment space. From the enclosed outdoor barbecue, grill and bar island, to the stunning water and fire features, including the grand fire pit centerpiece. If Unilock Umbriano was considered the cake base, Lineo Dimensional Stone is certainly the icing on that extraordinary cake. Unilock Ledgestone coping in Buff helps top each entertaining feature, creating cohesion with the tones established by Umbriano on the main paver floor. A dark wood pergola provides ample shade for barbecuing and seating by the bar island. There’s no shortage of seating areas when you have low seat walls, combined with the various patio chairs and tables that adorn the multiple elevations of this patio. An in-ground pool is located adjacent to all the fun amenities, with a private enclosure using metal fencing and Unilock Lineo Dimensional Stone incorporated as an additional safety precaution to keep kids from going into the pool unattended.
