6 Tips to Use Laminates in Interior Design

Laminates are gradually becoming a ubiquitous part of interior design, as they offer a unique blend of elegance, durability, and value. NewMika offers a range of vivid, bold and unique laminates that allow you to create any ambience with ease. Our laminate catalogue features a wide spectrum of options including wood patterns, metal finishes, abstracts, and custom designs. With unparalleled experience in all-things-laminates, here is what we recommend if you are looking to use laminates for your interior design. Read on.

1. Select your laminates based where you’ll use them

You should choose your laminate design and color based on where it will be used. Some laminates, such as those with uneven textures are generally more difficult to clean than smooth laminates. Decorative laminates with glossy surfaces tend to reveal thumbprints against light. Laminates with a matte finish, therefore, are ideal for places prone to touch, whereas glossy and textured laminates are preferred for areas with less traffic.

2. Use laminates when you’re on a budget

Decorative laminates come in a variety of designs, particularly for popular patterns like wood and marble, albeit at lower costs. Though laminates are less expensive than materials such as spray paint and veneer, they are quite long-lasting. Laminates are also resistant to water and scratches and are exceptionally easy to clean.

3. Immediately clean water spills on laminate surfaces

Although laminates are water resistant, they’re not waterproof. Do not leave water to sit on laminate surfaces for a long time. Also, never let water sip into the joints and edges of the laminates as it may cause them to detach from the substrate.

4. Use mild cleaning agents

According to many laminate manufacturers, a wet towel and dishwashing liquid are preferred for cleaning off dirt and removing stains from laminate surfaces. An abrasive material or strong chemicals can damage laminate surfaces.

5. Mix and match different designs

You can combine solid color laminates with wood textured ones to create a uniquely elegant appeal. When contrasted with solid color laminates, wood grain designs pop out and become more visible.

6. Always ask for samples

Things can look quite different in studio conditions than in real life. No decorative laminate catalog, therefore, can show you the exact look and feel of different types of laminates. Irrespective of the type of decorative laminates you are looking for, make sure you ask your supplier for samples to eliminate the possibility of any unpleasant surprises.
