Gallery: Albie Knows’ Flex Lounge with Formica® Writable Surfaces

Albie is back with another project featuring Formica® Brand Surfaces

Craft room with laminate desk, peg board, shelves and books.

You may remember Albie Knows from her kitchen remodel, where she bypassed the more expensive butcher block and quartz options in favor of Everform® Solid Surface from Formica Group. Well, when it came time to update her flex lounge, Albie came back to us for a different surfacing option: Formica® Writable Surfaces

Below, we asked Albie a few questions about her surfacing choices:

Tell us about the overall inspiration for the study/flex space. What was most important to you?

Everything about this space was another creating flexibility around our lifestyle — the ability to tackle multiple activities & ability to change over time as needed. The inspiration was our real life. 

What are the primary ways you use this space? 

The flex lounge includes 3 primary functions — work from home, fitness, and homeschooling activities. 

What drew you to Formica® Writable Surfaces for this room? 

The Writable Surface is for the mini’s workstation, which is the main part of her area. I wanted an area where she could play freely & creatively without having to worry about maintenance. The best feature is right there in the name — in addition to the quality I know I’d be getting (a la or kitchen counters), she could just be a kid while using her workstation. 

You can follow along with more of Albie’s design journeys on her blog or check out more of her flex lounge in the gallery below.
