Laminates are essentially processed timber available in layered sheets bound together by strong adhesives. They enhance the beauty and durability of any surface, adding value to the design. Laminates are popularly used on wardrobes, kitchen cabinets, desk tops, shutters, partitions, lockers, restroom doors etc. These were initially used to protect the wooden core of furniture and to give them a highly polished, smooth surface. The availability of many different types of laminates has now ushered in a new era of interior designing.
Textured laminates FTW
The latest innovation in the world of laminates is the introduction of natural textures. The Monarchlam, for example, is available in various textures and designs such as wood grains, fabric, metal etc. These are tailor-made to suit the varied needs of home and office owners. Now you can have all the advantages of laminates and at the same time also have your walls and furniture feel like brick, shale, marble, or sandstone. Textured laminates make for a classy and elegant addition to your interiors indeed.
More colours, more vibrance
Coloured laminates have been around for some time now. The latest trend takes this use of colours a few notches up. Digital designs and pretty patterns in durable laminate is the new ‘in thing’. This means that you can use decorative laminates to fashion out wall panels, partitions, screens, even table tops, doors, and cabinets to add a fresh new touch to your home.
