Bhavana Bindra, MD, REHAU SOA, highlights the increasing use of decorative laminates in contemporary interior design by architects and interior designers, given the product’s aesthetical value, versatility in design, value-for-money characteristics, and high durability.


The world is moving towards a more connected, and minimal design philosophy, wherein laminates and plywood are becoming the preferred surface options for the furniture and interior design industry. The Indian consumer prefers textures, pastel shades, and neutral colors that elevate the aesthetics of a space.

Laminate sheets offer endless design options - from simple to the more complex – and designs that can be altered to resemble various textures like stone, wood, solid surfaces, etc, which can be used to enhance walls, doors, facades, floors, ceilings, and furniture pieces. The widespread adaptation of premium surface solutions like soft touch, anti-fingerprint, matte finishes, etc, especially in kitchens, in the last 5-7 years underlines their popularity.

At REHAU, we align our German technology with the Indian Government’s ‘Make in India’ vision. Our focus is to be a one-stop-shop for all furniture component needs, having established strong distinguishing points in each of our product lines, including composition, finishes, durability, and variety.

Laminates and plywood are used extensively in residential and commercial spaces. Architects and interior designers like to work with them because of their many adaptable qualities, including strength, durability, ease of installation, scratch resistance, availability in a variety of patterns and finishes, and flexibility in using them in both vertical and horizontal spaces.

With a broad spectrum of designs, colors, and patterns to choose from, REHAU is a one-stop-solution for the architecture and interiors community for all projects. REHAU’s laminates require zero maintenance, and their premium look can be retained for more than a decade.
