The Must-Have Laminates For Light To Dark Kitchen Interiors

While you may have a clear idea of what you want for your living room and bedrooms in your new home, the kitchen is one place that usually takes the backseat in many homeowners’ interior decor decisions. To get you started, a common question people have is “Should I go with a light or dark kitchen design?” There can be a big difference between the two from the type of atmosphere created to the illusion of space. To help you out, take a look at some examples of how our laminate sheets are used in the kitchen.

Open Up Your Space

Lighter colours will do just the trick in making your kitchen feel more spacious and expansive, especially if you have a small kitchen. Laminates like Fog (RP2108T) laminates will be a versatile option to consider, particularly if you plan to update the look of your kitchen walls in the near future. Apart from matching easily with any interior design style, you will be able to spot any visible stains, helping you keep your kitchen clean.

Pull Off The Two-Toned Look

Two-toned duos can make your kitchen appear more interesting, depending on how you play around with the two colours. To start off, Ice White (ASG2112HG) laminates fills this cooking space with its fresh and bright appearance, evoking an airy feel. Applied on the bottom cabinets, Graphite K (RP2192T) laminates anchors the refreshing white colour scheme. Looking effortlessly chic, you can bet that this monochrome combo will stay a classic.

Separate Your Rooms

Darker cooking spaces tend to look more luxurious and sophisticated. Even for black, there are different hues with their individual impact. For open-plan layouts, if the rest of your interior is leaning towards a lighter colour scheme, our Graphite (RP2174T) laminates offer a visually dramatic contrast to the subtle surrounding shades. It will also be a great idea to use dark laminates to differentiate your spaces.

If you are having a hard time deciding on just one colour, you can always incorporate more into your colour palette. Here, the addition of Cammeo Oak (WPL2902S) laminates enlivens the monochromatic look. A plus point is having plenty of natural light entering your kitchen, allowing your dark kitchen cabinetry to stand out beautifully.

Explore Textures

With texture, it can add visual interest and truly enhance the beauty of a dark-hued kitchen. As the backsplash, countertop and flooring are already of darker shades, Derin (PQ2502MO) laminates take on a lighter approach to make it well-balanced. Simple yet aesthetically pleasing, these laminates add a touch of old-world grandeur with its texture when applied on both upper and lower cabinets.
