Upgrade your Kitchen Area with Laminates
Are you thinking about creating a splendid
kitchen area for your home? Then, laminates might just be the right choice for
you. The interior designing industry has a history of favoring High Pressure
Laminates or HPL and for good reason. These laminates not only
adorn your interiors space but also lend durability and unmatched strength and
style to them. When you are thinking of designing a specific section of your
home, for instance the kitchen, you need to be careful about your laminate
choice by taking into account the nature of work that will be taking place here
in the future. Keeping everything in mind, let's explore a few ways of
upgrading the kitchen space to an elegant and creativity stimulating area.
Choosing the right colour & finish is by
no means easy. This is one of the most important parts of the designing process
because the finish of a laminate is what will give your kitchen its style
Choose the Right Colour: Never
forget that the colours you pick for the kitchen will play a huge part in the
overall aesthetics. So, make sure you take your time to pick the right one.
Arrive at a final decision based on the size of the room, the amount of natural
light that’s available, your style of cooking and your taste. You can even
choose contrasting colours to give a bold look, you can keep it monochrome for
a sophisticated look or even choose an all-white approach for an ethereal space
Choose the Right Finish: With the global changes in
the likes and dislikes of customers and many lifestyle changes, the laminates
industry is always on their toes, bringing countless new finishes to choose
from. This decision, though fun, might be overwhelming for some. Here is a
lowdown on them to ease your selection process:
High-Gloss Finish: These laminates have a
beautiful, almost reflective surface that can lend any space some much required
oomph. Lighter colours have a tendency to bounce around the light, making the
kitchen appear brighter than it is in reality. Our Lucida laminates come
finish which has the highest resistance to scuff & scratches,
making them low maintenance and convenient.
Matte-Finish: Matte-finish laminates are
perfect for those who value subtlety in style. These laminates are medium
reflective and come in various designs, are low-maintenance and do not show scuff
marks or dirt very easily. Our Silk-Tuff
laminates come in European Matte-Finish with feather-touch technology
to give you a well-rounded range of matte-finish laminates.
Textured-Finish: Laminates with textured
finishes have been specially designed to replicate the appearance and grains of
real wood surfaces, making your kitchen look like it has been finished in
natural wood but for a fraction of its cost.
Pro Tip: Wipe the textured
laminate surfaces clean with soapy water and microfiber cloth once a month to
remove any dirt or grime stuck in the crevices.
Before choosing a finish for your surfaces, it
would be prudent to keep these points in mind:
Choose High Pressure Laminates: HPL are laminate
sheets that are bound together expertly under high pressure and heat to create
decorative sheets that can impart greater durability to surfaces that Low
Pressure Laminates or LPL. This is of great importance especially in the
kitchen because here, all surfaces must be highly resistant to heat and
Tip: Even though HPL are highly resistant to water, it
is advised not to expose laminated surfaces to water for a prolonged duration.
Laminates is the Way to Go: The kitchen is an
unofficial experimenting zone where we meet with many cooking failures, often
leading to mini yet salvageable food-related explosions. Therefore, it is
prudent to equip your kitchen with flame retardant laminates so that you can
safeguard your home and loved ones from any creativity-fuelled mistake that
might turn into a disaster. Our specialty fire retardant laminates are highly
resistant to flames and extinguishes completely as soon as the flame source is

pertinent that good hygiene is maintained while preparing meals in the kitchen.

laminates discourage the growth of germs and bacteria, which is a huge plus
anywhere in your home. CenturyPly
