These shoebox-sized living spaces might have one-, two, or even three-bedrooms, but it’s often the case that apart from the bed, you’re not going to be able to fit much else in one room. The solution lies in customising the furniture you need to maximise every inch of your (expensive) space. Often the ideas involve building up instead of sideways to fit everything you want – you might even be able to carve out extra storage space! Try out these ideas below, which not just work well, but look great too.

Posted by Lamitak on Nov 8, 2018 11:11:04 AM

We’re feeling blue and loving it. The colour that dominated the runways for the Spring 2018 fashion collections in New York is finally making its way into homes. In fashion, the spectrum ran the gamut from powder to electric. However, for our spaces, designers have been embracing mid-tones as well as darker, more formal shades which go perfectly with wood grains and metallic accents such as brass and gold. In colour psychology, blue creates a feeling of calmness and serenity; its darker tones signal security, stability and sophistication.

Rock your home with these stone-inspired laminates from Lamitak

Posted by Lamitak on Sep 7, 2018 1:17:02 PM

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. However, stone is not seen as a suitable material for residential wall claddings due to the high cost of material, the challenge of installation, and the labour of maintenance. Now, this intriguing material can easily be a part of home decor, thanks to stone-inspired laminates.
