We all want to create a space that reflects our own personalities. One of the awesome things about using epoxy is that it offers many customizable options. From so many shade options, to metallic finishes, and various art applications, epoxy is highly customizable. With so many great custom options available, epoxy is the way to go for your decorating ideas.
What Is Custom Epoxy?
Custom epoxy can be any type of epoxy application that is created just for you. It may include special tints, a poured metallic one-of-a-kind floor, or countertops and tables that cannot be easily duplicated. It can be used to create custom embeds and amazing inlays that will stand out. You could have pictures of your favorite animal or your businesses logo embedded into the flooring with epoxy to create a truly custom floor.
Why Use Custom Epoxy Formulations?
Custom epoxy formulations allow you to take a space and make it truly reflect the message you are trying to send. Whether you are creating a relaxing porch on the beach or a waiting area in a business, you can create a space that truly shows off your creativity.
Custom epoxy formulations come with all the benefits of epoxy. They are resilient, long-lasting and easy to maintain. This means that your custom creation will still be looking great years from now, when many other design choices would be falling apart or looking weathered and worn.
Where Can Custom Epoxy Be Used?
Custom epoxy uses are only limited by your imagination. They can be used to create amazing countertops with embedded objects or customized metallic floorings that resemble expensive marble. Logos and images can be inlayed into the surface to reflect your room’s theme or business logo. Custom epoxy can be used in kitchens, bathrooms, and garages. It also can be used outdoors on driveways, sidewalks, patios and more. The options are almost limitless!
Design Ideas Using Custom Epoxy
One popular use of custom epoxy is inlayed images. Some people like to inlay fancy border designs or fun patterns into the surface before coating it with epoxy. A popular custom epoxy use is to embed pennies into floors or countertops for a cost-effective and amazing custom look. You can embed pictures, postcards, documents, newspapers, and other paper items onto a surface with epoxy, creating a truly unique area. You can also use metallic additives to create a one-of-a-kind kind floor that resembles expensive marbles flooring at a fraction of the cost.
Resin pours have become very popular ways to create custom pieces. Some people like to create epoxy resin river tabletops. They take two pieces of rough-cut wood and place them on a surface with a space between them. They create a mold for the top and bottom, to hold the resin in. They then use blue tinted clear epoxy to pour into the space between the wood to create what looks like a river between them. Once that cures, they cover the entire thing with a clear epoxy resin to give the whole piece an amazing shine and look.
People also mix epoxy with pebbles to create a completely custom driveway or sidewalk. You create a frame around the driveway or sidewalk that leaves a half inch of space between the frame and the surface. You mix the pebbles with resin, and then begin putting it down on the surface, and using a trowel to even it all out. Make sure the pebble and epoxy mixture get into the space between the frame and the surface, so that it is completely wrapped and only pebbles show up.
