We’re Busting Myths about Laminates!

Although laminates are a popular material, there are many misconceptions about them that can lead to confusion when choosing materials for your project. Here, we happily debunk some of the common myths about laminates and explore the joys of this beautiful and versatile material.

MYTH 1: Laminates are “low-quality”

Not true. Laminates are made by layering multiple sheets of paper or fabric with resin, which is then pressed together at high pressure and temperature. This process creates a durable  material that’s resistant to scratches and stains. We source our high-quality materials from Europe, and your laminates will last for decades.

MYTH 2: Laminates are “only available in basic colours and patterns”

Our laminates come in a wide range of colours, patterns, and textures, including wood, stone, and metal. Matte or glossy. We have over 100 colours of marble laminate, alone. Plus, laminates can be customised to fit any space: residential, commercial, or caravans. Let your inner interior designer out to play.

MYTH 3: Laminates are “not easy to install”

False. Our team can get the materials quickly and your project done in a short amount of time. Laminates can be cut to fit different sizes and shapes, making them an ideal choice for a massive variety of projects.

MYTH 4: Laminates are “not eco-friendly”

Laminates use fewer natural resources and produce fewer emissions than materials like stone and wood. Plus, it’s recyclable and lasts for a long time, making it a sustainable choice for your project.

MYTH 5: Laminates work “only for commercial spaces”

Some people believe that laminates are best for places like schools and hospitals. While those are fantastic spaces to use them in, laminates are a wonderful choice for residential spaces as well. Laminates can be used in kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms, and in caravans. They bring variety, elegance, texture, and imagination to your projects, while you also benefit from faster remodels and lower price tags.

Despite some common misconceptions, laminates are a high-quality, easy-to-install, and customizable material that come in a wide range of colours, patterns, and textures. Additionally, they’re eco-friendly, easy-to-clean, long-lasting, and open up a world of options!
