Choosing Different Laminate Textures For Your Feature Wall

Featured laminate: PK039CT (TV Cabinet)

Take a look around your house. You’ll notice that laminates are commonly used on tables, kitchen cabinets, and any wooden furniture. The use of laminates isn’t limited to only home furnishing, but can also be applied on your house walls to enhance the appearance of your home.

One way for you to do that is to start with a feature wall, which can turn any room in your house from ‘nice’ to ‘stylish’. As High-Pressure Laminates (HPL) come in a wide array of colours, designs, and textures, you can expect to impress your guest whenever they visit.

Designed to mimic expensive materials such as marble and timber, laminates are the cheaper yet highly durable alternative in home décor. However, with a plethora of options available in the market, choosing the right one for your wall can be daunting at times.

Ahead, we’ve put together five types of laminates that are designed to bring out the best of your space.

Sleek And Clean

There’s a reason why light-coloured, untextured wall laminates are preferred in the living room of many Singaporeans. It gives off a minimalistic atmosphere while keeping the room looking simple yet stylish. One example will be the feature wall above.

The sleek and clean feel of the wall laminate will blend easily whenever you decide to change the living room furniture. For homes with limited spaces, light-coloured wall laminates can brighten and widen the space as it reflects more light than dark-coloured laminates.

Accent Wood

That said, Jennings offers a range of laminates that mimics various wooden textures to give you a wide array of options to suit your needs and preferences.

Marble Chic

As one of the most expensive materials for home décor, marble laminates can certainly add instant glam to any room without the hefty price tag. Take the hallway pictured above as an example. You can easily impress your guest with a laminated feature wall that looks as real as it can get.

Depending on the tone of marble that you choose, it can easily compliment light to dark furniture. Make sure you opt for glossy marble laminate to enhance the texture’s authenticity.

Urban Concrete

For a modern industrial look, you can consider concrete-looking laminate as pictured above to add a rustic feeling to the room. Not only that, but it also works to tone down the atmosphere of the room when compared to marble laminates.

With such a feature wall, you get to highlight other features of the room such as your vintage furniture pieces. If you’re looking for a lighter shade of industrial laminate, Jennings offers a few selections that are suitable for you.

When it comes to choosing the ideal laminate texture for your wall, it all boils down to your preference along with the atmosphere you wish for the room, the size of the room, and other decorative pieces in the room.
