Exploring How Laminates Can Inspire Scandinavian Home

  • January 23, 2017

Scandinavian design is a blend of three core elements:

-       creation of pleasant and airy ambience;

-       a mix of function and visual appearance; and

-       the use of natural wood materials

While utilising real wood materials would understandably incur higher renovation costs, the use of laminates to create a Scandinavian - themed interior can help in managing cost and ease of maintenance without compromising the unique aesthetic appeal of a typical Scandinavian home.

Below are the advantages of using laminates to create a perfect Scandinavian ambience:


Laminate is an Eco-green Alternative to Solid Wood

In a world where consumers are particular about eco-green initiatives, laminates are a natural substitute of natural wood flooring in designing new furniture – an element which is a must for every Scandinavian interior.


Aesthetic Appeal

A combination of white, grey and neutral earth tone colours exudes the homely ambience for your Scandinavian-themed living space. With a wide variety of laminate designs to choose from, this can be easily achieved.

For dining areas for example, one might consider the use of pastel brown laminate on a dining table to convey the earthy touch to the surrounding. The table acts as an accent piece and laminate could model the appearance of a wood product such as oak.


Functionality Meets Living Aspiration

Free from clutter, Scandinavian design balances the delicate needs for space and functionality. A laminated cabinet with light tone wood grain design adds a dose of natural living space coupled with a purposeful function of storage needs in every home.


Low Maintenance for your Inspired Home

While natural wood furniture often requires extensive care routine, the maintenance of laminate is simple. As dust can rest on laminate surfaces, dust regularly can help retain the allure appearance of laminated furniture. A damp rag with a little water is all you need to rub stubborn stains that cannot be removed through usual dusting routine.

In your quest for a Scandinavian home design, consider laminate as an option. The duality of versatile colour tones compliments the textural feel of a laminate is an ideal choice for creating your lovely nest.
