Designing a space can be tricky, especially if you have so many ideas floating around.
In the current age of social media, we are constantly being inspired by different styles and aesthetic. I remembered not knowing where to start when I was designing my first kitchen.
In those early days, I didn’t know anything about moodboarding. In fact, the interior designer I hired just took over.
Needless to say, despite my gut instinct telling me that I wanted to be more adventurous, I just agreed with the ‘safe’ and probably boring white kitchen.
Now, with more interior decorating experience, I’m clearer what my style, colour palette and aesthetic is.
I’m currently in the process of redesigning a few rooms in my home, such as my bathrooms and kitchen.
To help me visualise how my space would look, I was so pleased to discover Corian‘s new Moodboard Maker.
In fact, it has led me to the world of Corian® . I didn’t realise there was such a variety of colours and designs available.
If you are new to Corian®, it is essentially a blend of minerals and acrylic creating a high tech non porous surface that is durable, resistant to stain and easy to clean. The icing on the cake is that it looks beautiful and stylish.
If you love contemporary, then Corian® is perfect for creating those seamless surfaces that goes with that style.
I have been looking for new bedside tables for a while, but have not decided on anything. I’m now thinking of getting them made in Corian®.
I like the way that it is durable to wear and tear. It’ll definitely be able to withstand all the stains and spills from bedtime glasses of water and scratches from keys flung onto the table.
My bedroom is a light and bright space, with my very own version of a Californian vibe.
I’ve decided that pops of sunshine yellow would be the perfect addition to that vibe. I’ve played with the Corian® Moodboard Maker and decided that Imperial Yellow and Designer White Corian would work well with my interior space. The moodboard above really helps me visualise how everything looks together.
I have two ideas on how I could use the Corian®.
The first is to commission for a shelf table to be made using the Designer White Corian®.
I will use the Imperial Yellow Corian® on the table top and as the shelf.
My second idea is to get a carpenter to make me a wooden bedside table and then place the Corian® on top in layers. The yellow will go on top of the white.
It’s incredible how a Moodboard Maker could give me the creative ideas to design a piece of furniture. Hope you’ve enjoyed the post. I’ve really enjoyed using the Corian® Moodboard Maker to help me crystallise my ideas.
The Corian® Moodboard Maker is really easy to use too. All you have to do is decide on your style (there are 7 styles : Minimal, Relaxed, Modern, Refined, Organic, Bohemian and Edgy), then select the piece of Corian® that would suit your space, add one Corian® Design swatch and then personalise your moodboard by uploading your own patterns and photos.
In fact, I may now even go to explore Corian® for my bathroom refurbishments.
You too can try out the Moodboard Maker for free. I would love to see your designs with #Corianmoodboardmaker. Try it out here.
