How to Use Mixed Materials in Your Home

Wilsonart THINSCAPE and Laminate

Finishing a home takes all kinds of materials, but we often fall back on just a few when putting the final touches on the interior. Why not look beyond the usual specifications to create a totally unique design? Mixing materials gives you the opportunity to get imaginative, impart practicality where you need it, and even save some money without compromising on aesthetics! Read on to see what we mean, and to get some ideas for your new home!


Durable and Sustainable Quartz Countertops

When it comes to choosing countertops, you have plenty of options. Should you opt for natural stone slabs, or go with a manmade product? It’s not just a matter of cost, because you’ll find that maintenance and damage concerns vary widely across all categories. If you want a material that makes the choice easy, look into quartz countertops—they come in all sorts of beautiful patterns and offer outstanding durability. Here’s why we love them!


How to Build a Better Kitchen

Wilsonart Quartz

No part of designing your new home is more involved than the kitchen. It has so many parts and roles to fill, you’ll be spending a lot of time here, and as a major gathering place for friends and family, you want it to make a great first impression. Many homeowners focus on appliances when planning how to outfit this space, but don’t forget the other variables! Here’s what you should remember for the rest of your kitchen design.


Why Solid Surface Counters Are a Great Choice

Wilsonart Angel Falls

Balancing beauty and practicality can be difficult, especially in the kitchen. It’s primarily a workspace, but it’s also a focal point of the home where friends and family gather, and everything from appliances to fixtures is always on display. Nothing has to pull double-duty as much as countertops—they are the base on which you get stuff done, the backdrop to buffet-style spreads, and sometimes they act as a dinner table—so make sure the material you choose is up to the task. Have you considered solid surface counters? Here’s why they could be the perfect solution!


Bathroom Countertops

Since most countertops are custom made, you can be very creative with your specific bathroom décor. There are a multitude of colors, patterns, and materials to pick from. Not all the materials work well with condensation and water. The best options are marble, granite, ceramic, porcelain tiles, solid surfaces, and laminate surfacing.
