When homeowners think of renovating their homes, it is natural for them to think of paints as an unavoidable part of the process. Paints have for a long time been the traditional choice for people looking to give their homes a fresh change. This was so because paints are inexpensive and were the easy option.
The increasing popularity of laminates– commonly referred to as ‘mica’ sheets has altered the conventional decision to choose paints in remodelling homes to a large extent. Homeowners now find themselves steering more towards buying laminates for their homes than just giving their walls a fresh coat of paint. This is for several reasons.
Here’s taking you through why you should make the exciting choice to buy laminates and say goodbye to the unadventurous paints.
Painting can be an extremely time-consuming process. It may take you several weeks to paint your home entirely. Installing laminates on the other hand is a far less time-consuming, and less laborious process in comparison.
Painted surfaces can be troublesome to maintain. It can be testing to clean in case they get dirty and may require re-painting. Your go-to low-maintenance option is always to use laminate. Regular gentle cleaning and dusting will easily do the job of keeping your surfaces spotless and hygienic.
Laminates are resistant to scratches, scuffs, and scrapes. They are made of tough processed material and can withstand a good amount of impact.
While paints are now available in a host of colors, it comes nowhere close to the variety that laminates can offer. Laminates are available in an assortment of colors, designs, patterns and finishes that you can virtually have your pick of the litter.
Homeowners are now more concerned about the aesthetic value of their living spaces more than ever. Laminates should be your top choice because they offer a unique combination of beauty and functionality.
Laminates are made up of layers of kraft paper, resins and decorative papers which are then topped off with a durable clear layer, all of which are joined under a high-pressure method. This makes the end product a tough, enduring and long-lasting material. The durability of laminates is so much higher than paints.
Prolonged exposure to paint and paint fumes can cause discomfort and allergic reactions in some people. They may develop a congested nose, irritability and blisters when exposed. This is important to consider especially because painting can be a lengthy procedure. Installing laminates has no such known health effects.
Installing laminates on walls can act as a layer of insulation. By resisting moisture and heat absorption, they can retain indoor temperatures and help reduce consumption of energy.
Granted that paints are the cheaper option, but they require constant maintenance in the form of frequent touch-ups. Laminates on the other hand are cheap and easy to care for and last in pristine condition for a long time. This evens out the higher cost over the years.
Paints have a limited purpose as they can only be used in so many ways. Laminates have a limitless application in comparison. Remodelling interiors? Laminates can help in so many ways. For your walls, laminates for furniture, laminates for doors, for cabinetry- the choice is yours.
Between paints and laminates, the latter is a clear winner. Merino laminates has for decades provided the best interior solutions to the global market. Head over to Merino to get premium quality laminates and avail the pleasure of choosing from an exceptional collection.
