Home & Decor (Singapore) - - Contents - VISIT LAMITAK CITY GALLERY AT # 01- 61 CT HUB 2, 114 LAVEN­DER STREET, TEL: 6592- 5200.

The lam­i­nate brand’s first city show­room.

The new Lamitak gallery in Laven­der is not only a more ac­ces­si­ble lo­ca­tion for home­own­ers (a re­lief for those who dread driv­ing to its Sungei Kadut branch), but it has cus­tomer ser­vice down to a T, too. The gallery’s thought­ful and stylish de­sign makes it easy for you to get to know your op­tions bet­ter – an im­por­tant as­pect of lam­i­nate-shop­ping, es­pe­cially with the in­creas­ingly cre­ative ar­eas of ap­pli­ca­tion, such as 3-D fea­ture walls and bench stools (we spot­ted some in the gallery!).

The 2,105sqf gallery is sep­a­rated into two spa­ces: the cosy mez­za­nine where in­te­rior de­sign­ers and home­own­ers can dis­cuss in pri­vate, and the ground floor, which show­cases hun­dreds of de­signs.

In the ma­te­rial li­brary, there are full-height pan­els that can be pulled out and ro­tated 360 de­grees; this al­lows you to see the in­tri­cacy of Lamitak’s pat­terns and tex­tures, and how light re­flects off the ma­te­ri­als.

Home­own­ers will also be able to browse over 450 pieces of lam­i­nates – one for ev­ery Lamitak de­sign, in­clud­ing crowd favourites like Oak Gi­ethoorn and the stone-look Ram­blas. Wor­ried that the af­ter­noon sun will af­fect the way your lam­i­nate looks? Head over to the light­box, where you can see how the de­signs might dif­fer un­der white and warm lighting.

The staff mem­bers know how te­dious it can be to keep track of so many de­signs, so they’ll help you note the ones you’ve se­lected or viewed for easy fu­ture ref­er­ence. You can also take home sam­ples and a copy of Lamitak’s pho­to­book, the Ev­ery­day book­let.

BOT­TOM Lamitak’s cen­tralised lo­ca­tion and the fact that it opens seven days a week en­sures that it’s eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble to ev­ery­one.

RIGHT, BE­LOW Many Lamitak de­signs and colours are in­spired by the in­ter­est­ing cities, forests, and scenic spots that Lamitak di­rec­tor Jansen Tan has seen on his trav­els.

RIGHT The home stag­ing area will be re­freshed ev­ery few months, to give cus­tomers dec­o­rat­ing as well as lam­i­nate-re­lated ideas.
