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.
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.
