Lamitak laminates might only be either 0.7mm- or 1mm-thick, but they’re very durable, and are able to resist abrasion and impact under normal use. That’s because they are made by using high heat and pressure to fuse many layers of craft paper soaked in resin. As their surface is sealed with a protective layer, they’re also easy to clean.
Choosing colours for your home isn’t rocket science, although it might seem intimidating. There are literally hundreds of colours you can choose from for your space, but once you know the basics of colour theory, deciding on a colour scheme is easy-peasy!

The large range of wood-look laminates from Lamitak easily make up the bulk of its catalogue – and for good reason!

Let’s explore some styles.

Misconception #1: Laminates can be used on the floor
High Pressure Laminates (HPL) or laminates, should not be confused with laminate flooring. Although both are made of a decorative film layered over a core material (substrate), they have very different properties. Laminates are fairly resistant to abrasions and impact, but they are not made to withstand the rigorous wear and tear of foot traffic, unlike laminate flooring. Use laminates on the floor only if it’s a space you don’t access often, to maintain the integrity and look of the surface.
