Designers, you know the feeling. That moment when you know you can make your client’s dreams come true by designing that take-your-breath-away kitchen showstopper! While they dream of gleaming, beautiful countertops, a stunning elegant island, you remember their busy lifestyle, their young kids, their many parties and know that durability and quality have got to factor in too.
So your mind fast-forwards to their kids’ first science project, a Sharpie smudge, or that first mysterious scratch and know you’ll be the first person they call to ask about the actual material of their stunning countertops. You see yourself explaining what products they should use for cleaning, that conversation when they say they didn’t know materials were porous… Slowly, the dream of a show-stopping kitchen falls prey to that boring word of practicality. Of course, practicality is… well, practical but so important.
However, we at Opustone know practicality can also be STUNNING! Yes their kitchen is the heart, brain and soul of a home, and while it should be admired, it’s gotta also be livable and real and withstand the stuff of LIFE! That’s why we’re so excited to talk about the Opustone collection of Laminam Porcelain Slabs – as a real solution to where beauty intersects with quality with practicality with life and with happy clients!
Recent technological advances in porcelain have allowed for incredible new products that boggle the brain in terms of variety, textures, colors, uses and more. Today, porcelain designs can even be digitally printed allowing stunning textures, variations and colors that are on a new level of aesthetic appeal and artistic nature. Plus, porcelain is not just limited to the usual square tiles, there is a ridiculously huge list of optional versatile sizes such as extra long tiles and slabs of various widths that can be used creatively all you want and invent – whether flooring, wall panels and kitchen counters and more. Your imagination is the only limit to all that’s possible with Laminanm and its family of products.
These exquisite materials retain their beauty because they were designed by artists with an awareness of how best to be resistant to stains, liquid and the like. Laminanm porcelain appearance doesn’t change or dull, even after years of intensive use (yes those parties and science projects) and the variety of daily household cleaners now on market. Plus, while that kitchen is getting maximum use with cooking amazing meals, Laminam porcelain is also resistant to fire and high temperatures so that simmering pot of risotto can sit comfortably on it while you chop your truffles and your countertop will not even notice.
And at the end of the day, porcelain remains clean. Because it does not hold soluble elements, it won’t allow the formation of mold or bacteria to nest underneath so you can breathe easier that your client won’t be calling you wondering what’s happening with their countertops or islands.
Finally, from an artistic and aesthetic design perspective, the Opustone porcelain selection is honestly just unparalleled in beauty and awe-inspiring appeal. For example, the Calce porcelain series features elegant pale colors and delicate nuances inspired by wet plaster and industrial concrete. Another style is the Cava porcelain series that sheds a trained eye on natural quarry-style stone, bringing to light beautiful features and an authentic veining effect. And the Tinta Unita porcelain series has interesting reflecting surfaces with a full-body color that underlines thick hues worth seeing in person. Finally, if you really want to be wowed, you must check out the Seta porcelain series of porcelain since it’s the hottest new series from Laminam that will take your breath away and make you want to see it all over your latest client’s home.
But ultimately, what should give you and your clients peace of mind is that the Opustone Laminam porcelain slabs are a savvy way to achieve what’s really needed in any luxury kitchen – the duality of stunning beauty and dependable practicality.
So… go ahead, tell your client they can let the kids go wild and do their school projects on the new kitchen island or they can carve that arugula pizza right on the counter! Thanks to our Laminam porcelain series, life in the kitchen can be a beautiful experience. If you dream it, Opustone can make it a reality. Check out the full collection here and see for yourself.
They’ll thank you for it and you’ll thank Opustone!
