The New Look Of Laminate

New Article Explores Laminate's Attempts at Recreating the Real Thing
June 04, 2008 // Franchise Update // Greenville, Wis. – In his newest article, "The New Look of Laminate," retail consultant Larry Myer invites readers to take a second look at an economical material alternative – laminate. With economic downturns and the scaling back of financing options, money is getting tight. For those retailers who are looking to save money without sacrificing the look of their store, this article is for them. "There seems to be a preconceived notion that because laminates play the more "economical" role, they also have to dress the part. The reality, however, is that the laminates on the market today are not your mother's laminates," write Myer.

Using three popular fixturing materials –wood, metal, and stone, Myer takes a look at what laminate producers have done to come even closer to replicating the "real thing" and why, in some cases, laminates could be even better than their counterparts. All this helps to drive home his conclusion that "Scaling back on budget doesn't mean you have to scale back on your design."
