Wood vs laminates according to Samrat Mica.

Here at "Samrat Mica" we talk to our clients & buyers and often face the same question, what is the difference between wood and laminates, which material is better to use in the interior? It's true, everyone wants to choose best solution for their home, sometimes it is thought that wood is so much better to use than laminates. We, at "Samrat Mica" have made a list of 10 points, which may change such opinion. If you have more questions, don't hesitate to contact us!

  1. Many people can’t even tell the difference between laminate and wood surface.
  2. Laminates are produced in so many different designs, that it can replace any other material in interior design.
  3. Laminate designs that look like wood cost much less than actual wood.
  4. There are much more options how to install the laminate, even without the use of glue and without the help of professionals (unlike installing wood).
  5. Laminates are not easy to scratch or crack, so there is no need to be afraid of breaking one while applying.
  6. Wood is not possible or not recommended to apply in bathrooms and kitchens because of the moisture. Laminates are water-resistant and applicable in every room or place.
  7. Laminates are resistant to surface water whilst the quality remains the same in hot and cold temperatures.
  8. Harsh substances, such as coffee or nail polish, are easily cleaned from laminate surfaces.
  9. Wood is not sun resistant, it can fade if exposed to lot’s of sunlight. This will not happen to laminate
  10. Finally, laminated surfaces are known for their long lasting beauty and freshness.

Designers & their chairs

This picture was taken almost fifty years ago. The famous designers of that time with their creations. It would be interesting to see picture like that of the new generation and their works. Would it be a lot different? Different forms, younger faces and maybe less colour?
