Smart Phone, Meet Smart Counters

One of the great things about working with other decorators or people who are otherwise involved in the design industry is that I pick up all sorts of information during our conversations. Recently, when discussing a kitchen renovation with Daniela Hammond of Counters and Decor, I learned about DuPont’s Corian charging surfaces. Corian is a hard wearing, stain resistant, and easy to clean surface material and now you can have a charge spot installed under these counters which transfers power to your smart device through magnetic induction. No wires necessary.

Any product that minimizes unsightly chords is on my A-list. There are all sorts of stylish charging stations out there but who wouldn’t rather place their phone on an unblemished counter top and let a hidden charging station do its job, site unseen.  If I had known about this device when I wrote my post on Meet the Jetsons: The Home in 2016 this product certainly would have been included.

The down side is that I’m not really a fan of the appearance of Corian.  Admittedly, I have not spent any time looking at a large variety of Corian so I’m sure there is better looking options out there but the ones I have seen do not hold a candle to natural stone. They also don’t have the benefit of being less expensive than many natural stone options.  They are however, very durable, and if I ever have a super techi client, I will definitely be doing some shopping around to see if I can find any Corian as nice looking as that in these pictures.
