What is a laminate?
Royale Touché laminate sheet is an artificial material used for furnishing commercial and residential spaces. They are made with a specialised transparent paper coated with aluminium oxide and a unique resin mixture to protect the top surface of the laminate from scratches, impacts, abrasion, spills and other external agents. Furthermore, a combination of specially treated Kraft papers with a variety of resin mixtures are used to provide strength, balance, stability, better sanding and adhesion, and longevity to the product. The core, once treated under controlled conditions, prevents the laminate from cracking and fracturing, ensuring it looks good and stays good for years.
Here’s how you can transform your home interiors using digital laminates from Royale Touché –
FOCUS ON FUNCTIONALITY
Your first step should be to understand the types of laminates available in the market. Each laminate is designed for a specific purpose. This is why you must choose according to the functionality, for example-
1. High Pressure Laminates – Perfect for surfaces exposed to high wear and tear
2. Gloss Laminates – Ideal for kitchen cabinets
3. Decorative Laminates – Living room, bedrooms and kitchens
4. Anti-Fingerprint Laminates – Surfaces that are prone to a high level of interaction and usage
ALWAYS CONSIDER THE LIGHTING
Don’t forget to consider the lighting in your house before you start working with laminates. It is always recommended to understand lighting in different spaces of your home, when crafting your interior decor, regardless of the material being used. Apply laminate sheet designs that complement the natural or artificial light in different corners to bring out the best aesthetics.
APPLY THE ANCIENT ADAGE – LESS IS MORE
Remember, visual appeal or the aesthetic of your home is what really matters. So, don’t try to go overboard with many textures, prints and colours, which may overshadow other elements in the same space. Instead, use laminates that complement different corners of your home and make it more appealing.
Royale Touché uses a very special resin formulation that is applied over the decorative surface paper to achieve a high degree of bacteria growth resistance. However, this does not mean that you should not follow the simple regime of cleaning your decorative laminates. To make your home look and feel beautiful for years, follow a simple process of cleaning your laminate sheets with a soft microfiber cloth and dip it in warm water to get rid of the most stubborn stains easily with just one swipe.
Pro Tip: Always remember to act swiftly and clean the surface immediately, instead of letting the stain sit for hours.
