Scandinavian

The Scandinavian style is a perennial favourite among homeowners for its simplicity which prioritises function above needless decorations. Hygge, a Danish word describing a sense of wellness, is created in Scandinavian homes through the use of lots of natural materials such as wood in lighter tones (due to the Northern Europe climate), and by layering textures for comfort and cosiness. To create this look, seek out Lamitak’s range of wood-look laminates in light bleached hues, and soft solid colours such as pastels. Get inspiration from the articles below.


 

 

 

 

Industrial

The industrial look has evolved through the years, from gritty raw surfaces and bare brutalist interiors to the current hybrid that includes some polish and shine in the chosen furnishings to create interesting contrasts, but the key elements remain the same. Concrete will always be a starring character in an industrial design scheme, the other usual suspects being oxidised or rusted metal surfaces. Get all of these looks with concrete- and metal-look laminates from Lamitak, featured in the following articles.


 

 

These real-life makeovers take the edge off a hardcore industrial look for more family-friendly appeal.

Retro

When we think of retro style, colours invariably come to mind. Each decade seems to be defined by its own palette of colours – in the 50s, it was dull mustards, greens and browns (think TV series Mad Men), which morphed into the bright optimistic yellow and oranges of the 60s and 70s, and then into the happy bubblegum pink and turquoise of the 80s. Lamitak has 150 solid colours laminates to choose from, so go ahead and pick the colours which best define your idea of retrolicious. Otherwise, get some inspiration from these articles!


 

 

Modern Farmhouse

We might have moved on from the traditional rustic cottage style popular in the 80s, but we can still spot its influence in the form of some charming details. The modern farmhouse look appears contemporary with white or light colour schemes and clean profiles, but is expressed through features such as mouldings applied as a border to cabinet doors (as pictured above) or to replicate the look of a barn door with a ‘Z’-shaped brace. Brass or porcelain handles and knobs add a finishing touch to the interiors. The articles below show how some elements of this look have been incorporated into modern interiors.


 

 

 

 

Simple and Contemporary

If you rather not commit to any specific decor theme, this one is a crowd pleaser for its neutrality. Keep to the tried-and-tested combination of wood tones and white for a basic and contemporary look that will not date any time soon. Keep to simple well-made furnishings, and add colours in the form of accessories which you can subtract later on if your tastes change. Check out how to create a neutral and versatile canvas for your home with the following articles.
