You’re a new homeowner looking for design ideas for your home, and naturally, you want a space that isn’t just tailored to your aesthetic taste, but also easy to maintain (who wants to do more housework?). One material that has the ability to turn any style idea into reality is laminates.
Find out why the creative director of interior design firm Ensemble loves to use laminates, and his top design tips for homeowners.

We speak to Lucas Yang of Archive Design to find out why laminates are such an important part of an interior designer’s arsenal of materials.
Honest, authentic and raw. These were the qualities of a building cladding that captured our imagination as we travelled through downtown Portland in Oregon on our epic road trip. We loved the textures so much that it became the basis of a new laminate which bears the name of the location – Humboldt Street!
Anything can be an inspiration for design, even a rusted wall cladding.
Everyone needs some ‘me’ time once in a while, and you don’t even have to go out of your home to zone out and relax. Conjure up a cosy corner easily with laminates to set the look and cement the design with some choice furnishings. We suggest seven fabulous looks to get you started.
Travel has always been a wellspring of inspiration for designers, even laminate designers. Wherever the Lamitak team goes, we always keep our eyes open for visually arresting textures; but it is not often we can pinpoint the final design to a single location. However, in the case of the rugged wood-inspired Rialto Pine laminate, it was two locations, halfway around the world from each other, which motivated its design. We share the story of its creation.
Stone can be perceived as being cold, solid, even boring – but that is far from the truth. Being an organic material, it contains nuances of colour and texture that are delightfully individual. Weathered by the elements, rock surfaces take on a different character.
