This common material is much more than what it seems – as exemplified by these exciting design ideas.
- Play on textures
Geometric designs have seen a surge of popularity due to its simple but striking symmetrical lines and through association with the Scandinavian style. This interplay of textured and shiny finishes in a symmetrical design order creates an eye-catching headboard.
- Frame it up
Laminates are commonly used for cabinetry but these kitchen cabinets take the aesthetics up a notch. Spruce up cabinetry doors with two different laminates: a dark-coloured frame outlining a symmetrical print for maximum visual impact.
- Stack them up
According to Jansen Tan, director of brand and product of laminates maker Tak Products & Services, laminates sporting patterns that mimic raw materials such as marble, rusted metals and natural stone would still be in trend for the coming years. For an evocative setting, stack up different layers of laminates for a play on depth and to introduce a three-dimensional effect.
- Two is better than one
Laminates have been used on bespoke furniture for a while now, but more and more homes are sporting laminated feature walls to create a point of focus in rooms. Here’s a unique feature wall idea: an asymmetrical design created with two layers of complementary laminates.
- Try a bold look
For something sleek and contemporary, this feature wall presents a bold streak of blue laminates cutting through woodgrain textures – perfect for homeowners who want to make a bold statement in their private sanctuaries.
