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!

  • I’ve always been a reader and the worst most tragic status for me has always been being book-less.  Good or bad I read them all. Within reason.

Over the last year or so though I’ve been surviving on @vanityfair articles and the endless news feed. It’s been that I’ve turned to before sleep to satiate my need to understand the world, thinking it’s keeping me ‘up to date’. What I’ve realized however is that it’s always been books. Prose. The process of turning the pages and immersion in the thoughts and wonders created by words that show me the ‘how’ of dealing with the ‘what’ and the ‘why’.

Read this marvelous memoir by @jackiekaiellis It’s delicious and filling.

  • And the angels sang 🎶

Sometimes you just know. When the goosebumps hit and you can’t contain your excitement.

Thanks @haristones for going above and beyond to show us the beauty within this gorgeous quartzite slab.

It’s going to be magnificent.
