The experts at the Pantone Color Institute have gazed into their crystal ball and released their colour palette forecast for the first half of 2019. Called New Native , the collection of seven hues is a “Celebration of Multicultural”, and represents a melting pot of cultures and a mash-up of influences both “old and new, traditional and experimental, synthetic and organic”. We love that the palette is made up of wonderfully organic tones that are closely tied to nature and can be easily translated into a home environment. Read on to find out how you can embrace this multi-dimensional trend with Lamitak laminates.

Posted by Lamitak on May 24, 2018 2:17:17 PM

A black-and-white colour scheme is an elegant and classy choice for the home. However it could all go awry without the right lighting or treatment and come across as cold and clinical. Not in this apartment by I’D Sense though! The designer made the high-contrast colour scheme look cosy and inviting by illuminating the spaces with mood lighting, and also by choosing the right laminates for its various surfaces. Instead of using stark black and white, the surfaces chosen carry subtle pattern and texture, such as marble veining and stone textures. Read on to find out more.

6 fun creative ways to use solid colour laminates from Lamitak

Posted by Lamitak on May 17, 2018 1:29:08 PM

Don’t underestimate the decorative potential of solid colour laminates! They might not mimic the look of wood, marble or fabric, but solid colour laminates can be used in many ways to create impactful designs for your home. Cut them up and use them with other laminate designs to create a collage of geometric shapes, or apply line etchings to create patterns to liven up the flat surface. As compared to using paint, laminates will ensure your walls have a super smooth finish and superb even colour tones. When used to create shapes, laminates also present a sharper and cleaner profile as compared to painting the shapes on. They are also really easy to maintain, requiring just a wipe to remove dust or stains. Get some inspiration from these six creative ideas which use solid colour laminates in totally new ways.

Discover the trending colours for 2018, and the laminates you can use to bring these hot hues into your home!

Posted by Lamitak on May 10, 2018 10:25:24 AM

Ever looked up into the inky black sky wondering what lies beyond our blue planet? Man’s curiosity about outer space, the afterlife, and our existence in the world have inspired the colour palette forecast of 2018/ 2019 by the foremost authority on colour, the Pantone Color Institute. The seven colours of this trend, which include blacker blacks, oil-slick purples and infinitely deep indigos, have been inspired by mineral shades shaped by unknown forces, and alien forms and surfaces, they say. The hues suggest an unnatural otherworldly provenance that dovetails with the belief that in the future, living on another planet could be an actual possibility.

Cut up your laminate sheets and create these 5 stylish wood-inspired looks!

Posted by Lamitak on Apr 26, 2018 10:50:12 AM

A sheet of laminate which typically measures 4ft by 8ft (120cm by 240cm) is great for creating a striking design feature on a wall in your home. You’ll be able to fully appreciate the beauty, of say, a large-format wood-inspired design that runs across the full laminate sheet if it is used in its entirety. However there is more than one way to apply laminates! As they come in thin sheets of just 0.7mm to 1mm-thick, they can be easily cut into different shapes and applied in the same way as the full sheet. Doing this opens up many more exciting decorative possibilities for laminates! For a start, consider these five eye-catching ways to use wood-inspired laminates.

You had decided to go with a wood-look laminate for your large feature wall to bring warm cosy vibes to your living room – and so you looked through some laminate catalogues and chose the design you want.
