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!

We’re no stranger to teak, the hardy tropical hardwood so popular in the past. The signature toasty hues of teak make a great surface design for walls. The example above suggests how the warm and even tones of Pine Oregon Teak can be applied together with a smart grid pattern that gives it a modern-retro look. This laminate also comes with an embossed texture for greater realism!

The rugged pattern and alternating light and dark bands of colour on the Lucas Oak Giethoorn laminated wall create visual texture and a delightfully organic-looking surface. This family of laminates come with a rough physical texture as well.

Stretch your space with a horizontal wood-inspired pattern such as Ibiza Nogal Horizontal. The Nogal Horizontal family of laminates span the spectrum from light to dark brown tones, but this mid-tone is easy on the eye with its even grains.

If you love your wood surfaces to look as natural and organic as possible, you’ll love the bold patterning of Pilar Nogal Americano. This design captures the exuberant swirls of natural woodgrain and arranges it in a vertical pattern which is best appreciated in this golden hue.
