“We started working on THINSCAPE in the United States back in early 2018. Wilsonart UK had great success with this product for several years, which proved the potential of a thin product, with performance capabilities, in the US,” said Mays.
A New Trend in Kitchen Design
There’s an undeniable quest in the world to make things smaller, thinner, and more manageable. However, when it’s done right we’re often left wondering how we ever lived otherwise. At least that will be the case with Wilsonart’s new THINSCAPE™ Performance Tops. For KBIS 2019, the brand is introducing a European-inspired ultra-thin countertop that’s unlike anything else that currently exists in the marketplace.
New Trend for Kitchens
THINSCAPE Performance Tops are glamorous and elegantly designed. A newly attainable luxury that will be available at an affordable price later this spring. In total, the collection offers up 12 incredibly durable, versatile, ultra-slim decorative slabs. Moreover, they feature a variety of trending surface material looks including large-scale stone, quartz, planked wood and aged metal designs. Likewise, all tops are water-resistant, impact-resistant, stain-resistant, and easy to maintain in the kitchen.
As we know, different market’s aesthetic preferences and manufacturing processes can vary. Also, this was the case between the UK and United States.
“Our design and manufacturing needs are a little different here in the US than they are in the UK. Therefore, we developed a product that would fit perfectly in American homes. However, this meant using the extensive knowledge of residential kitchen and bath trends. This we have acquired throughout the years as manufacturers and designers of Laminate, Solid Surface and Quartz. Moreover, we visited many stone yards around the country and developed beautiful marble, quartz, and quartzite looks that create a unique, high-end look. In addition, we wanted to include additional unique surface material looks for the home. This desire led us to developing the Distressed Pine and Rugged Steel options that make an eye-catching statement,” Mays noted.
ne of the biggest benefits of THINSCAPE from a professional standpoint lies in the fabrication; a selling point for designers and fabricators alike. Having the advantage of the use of dry woodworking tools makes it easier to create corners and cut-outs.
