If you’re renovating your home, chances are, at some point you’ll need to choose laminate designs for your interiors. High-pressure laminates, or just laminates, are decorative claddings that bring colour and texture to your surfaces. Instead of basing your decisions on tiny (and inadequate) laminate samples you see in most catalogues, drop by Lamitak Studio, a new 1,620sqft city-centre showroom by Lamitak, for a laminate ‘shopping’ experience with a difference. Here are five reasons why it’s a must-visit for renovating homeowners.
Reason #1 - The Innovative Material Library
No more trying to guess what a full-height laminate sheet will look like from a tiny sample. The impressive Material Library in Lamitak Studio presents three feet by eight feet (90cm by 240cm) laminate sheets on 79 two-sided panels! A special tracking system allows users to pull out each panel and rotate them 360 degrees – to better appreciate the full-scale pattern and texture of each unique design.
Reason #2 - The Extensive Laminate Tile Display
While it is not possible to display every design they have as a full-height panel, visitors will still be able to see all of Lamitak’s 450 laminate designs as a 10cm by 10cm large tile sample. This includes looks inspired by wood, concrete, metal, stone, and fabric, as well as patterns and solid colours. These mobile tiles are perfect for trying out different laminate pairings, and see how each responds to light at different angles. You’ll also be able to view the samples under white or warm lighting in a specially-designed lightbox area.
Reason #3 - Moodboard Inspiration
In love with a laminate design but not sure how to use it in your home? The Lamitak Studio features specially conceptualised moodboards that show you how your favourite laminate design can be used in living spaces, as well as possible pairings with other laminates, colours, and even furniture options! The creative possibilities will truly inspire you.
Reason #4 - Useful Advice
You can browse on your own, but help is always at hand at the Lamitak Studio if you have any questions. Friendly staff armed with iPads are present to offer you design advice for your home, discuss ideas and even get you a cup of freshly brewed coffee while you ponder your choices. You’re also welcome to linger at one of the cosy living settings in the studio – make yourself at home! Interior design professionals are able to use the more intimate 485sqft mezzanine area for discussions and presentations.
Reason #5 - Convenient and Accessible Location
The icing on the cake has to be the convenient city location of Lamitak Studio. Sited at CT Hub 2 in the Lavender area (a stone’s throw from the hipster coffee hub of Jalan Besar), it is accessible via the CTE, PIE and KPE if you’re driving and is a mere 10-minute walk from the Lavender MRT Station if you’re travelling by public transport. Ample parking is available at the building.
Visit the Lamitak Studio at 114 Lavender Street, CT Hub 2 #01-61 Singapore 338729, or contact them at 6592-5200 and [email protected]. Their opening hours are Monday to Friday from 10.30am to 6.30pm, Saturday from 10.30am to 4.30pm, and Sunday and public holidays from 12.30pm to 3.30pm.
