Here’s What I Love … old dog/new (laminate) tricks

Here’s What I Love … old dog/new (laminate) tricks

 

Laminate is not new.  In fact, its been around in homes for decades as table tops, counters, wall paneling and yes, floors.

Enter the new era of laminate with the recent KBIS show in Orlando this year. MIND blown.

This humble product, relegated to basements and laundry rooms everywhere has a new lease on life provided by Wilsonart

Would you believe everything in this photo is laminate?

How about this photo? can you spot the laminate?  is it the counters?  The backsplash? What about those cabinet doors?

Take a gander at this shower. Pretty splashy right? (pun intended)

Yep.  Laminate.

I will caution that with laminate and these applications your fabricator and installer must be top notch.  This is not your basic installation, so skill and finesse are of utmost importance.

Wilsonart also has a custom door program, which was a complete revelation.  No minimum order.  Any combination of finish and style, all to my specification. There is nothing designers like more than the ability to work with a company ready to bring your vision (whatever it is) to life.

Laminate doors

~note to all the modernists out there.  The Wilsonart black Traceless laminate is superb for a sleek black cabinet look we all crave but shy away from because fingerprints.

Never thought I’d use innovative and laminate in the same sentence but here we are!

  • Brrrr!!!! Well the cold has been back in Calgary for a bit. How I’d like be to be cuddled up here; by the lower level fireplace at our #pattersonluxuryreno project. 
It could be yours though. Showhome is open this weekend. Let me know if you want the details and I’ll post the address in the comments below ⤵️ #leannebunnellinteriors #interiordesign #yycinteriordesign #yyc #yycdesign #designlife #Calgary #calgaryhomes #yycstyle #yycliving #design #flashesofdelight #interiors #alberta #ohcanada #designhounds
  • Here’s what I love ... clever design tricks 
Seriously, look at this ceiling. Yes the fixture is pretty but the mouldings are like the frame on a work of art,  n’est pas? 
As designers we have an entire toolkit full of ways to make your house look its best. One we rely on here at LBI that never fails is spectacular mouldings and trims.

  • Sneak peek of a project we just wrapped. This #pattersonluxuryreno is the result of a year long collaboration with a local renovation company. #showhome

Much more of a new build than a renovation; not a square inch was left untouched as this house was pulled kicking + screaming from the dark recesses of the eighties into the light and bright world of 2018. 
Photo shoot is coming up and we can’t wait share more photos of this 6 bedroom beauty!

  • Back to reality today after a chilly Christmas break and a warm welcome in Orlando at @kbis_official with @modenus and #blogtourkbis 
Take a look at what attending #kbis2018 was for me and why, if you’re a designer, you should go. Link in profile

PS that is a fridge/freezer ⤴️ by @thermadorhome.  How’s that for hidden storage in the kitchen?
