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

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.

Warm wood-inspired laminate designs – see how this evergreen tone is a new contemporary favourite

Posted by Lamitak on Apr 6, 2018 7:30:00 AM

Pale, light European wood has been hogging the spotlight, thanks to the popularity of the Scandinavian look for homes. Darker woods, on the other hand, are for those who prefer a more mature, masculine appeal. Wood-grains which have the golden colouration of honey, on the other hand, are evergreen. They connote the nostalgia of vintage teak furniture and the rusticity of farmhouse furniture and are popular particularly in kitchens for their comforting familiarity. We present a snapshot of the toasty woodgrain designs available from Lamitak’s catalogue of almost 200 wood-look laminates – you’ll be surprised at how this classic can look so contemporary as well!
