Homeowners are raving about the wonders of laminate. Not only does laminate work well on your floors, but you can also install it on your walls! With the broadest selection of colors and textures available to consumers, you can create a stylish space on a budget. Let’s take a look at five ways homeowners are using laminate on their walls:
Five Fabulous Ways to Use Laminate on Your Walls:
1. Featured as an Accent Wall.
Laminate can help make a statement in your space by using it to frame your room. It can work exceptionally well in bedrooms that do not feature a headboard. When selecting your laminate, if you already have hardwood floors in the space, you want to choose a laminate in a contrasting/complementary color. You want the wall to stand out as well as accent the space.
2. Displayed inside of Built-In’s/Shelving/Insets.
Installing laminate inside of your home’s built-in’s, shelving, or insets is a unique approach to this classic storage option. The laminate helps to draw attention to the cut-out and frame it as a visually appealing piece. For even more creativity, design experts recommend switching back and forth between vertical and horizontal installment in each different cut-out.
3. Placed above Your Fireplace.
By lining the top of your fireplace with laminate, you can help elevate your room and make the room look larger. This is an inexpensive way to create a larger space on a budget.
- Pro-Tip: If you decide to hang your television on top of the laminate, experts recommend adding a sheet of plywood underneath for support with weight-bearing screws. This will help ensure your television is secure and ready for watching.
4. Installed as a Kitchen Backsplash.
If you are looking for a budget-friendly and rustic backsplash for your kitchen, laminate is the perfect choice for you! It can help add character to your kitchen with its charming wooden look. This design works well in kitchens that have painted cabinetry or open shelving because wood (backsplash) on wood (cabinets) can feel a bit intense.
5. Designed into Bathroom.
Laminate can be an affordable, durable option for homeowners looking to dress up their bathroom walls. It helps to give the bathroom a cozy, cabin feel and creates a breath-taking finished product.
