The use of materials and surfaces for the production of interior furniture is usually governed by the following rules:
On the inside of the so-called. non-sight of furniture is used mostly laminate thanks to its affordable price, a wide range of surfaces and easy maintenance. As far as the edge of the edges so they are used mostly on the edges of the ABS thickness from 0.5 mm to 3 mm.
On the outside and viewable parts of the design furniture (and therefore on the more expensive furniture) are used more expensive materials such as veneer varnished/oiled or lacquered color semigloss/gloss. The advantage of these materials is more luxurious look and increased resistance to moisture, so they can be used in kitchens and bathrooms as well. Laminated surface is used outside of non design furniture that is not used in moisture.
Materials and surfaces can be divided according to base financial demands from the cheapest to the most expensive ones in the following way:
is the cheapest and most widely used material for interior furniture. It is a double-sided fibre board labeled in thin foil from both sides. This material is produced by several manufacturers in a lot of wood patterns and pastel shades. They are available in various forces and surfaces of the structure and in different degrees of matt. It offers very easy maintenance.
is about two-five times more expensive than laminate semi- matt surface according to its quality and manufacturer. This is either the same material as the lamina semi-matte with the only difference that the surface is glossy and or it is a chipboard (or MDF) board labeled in laminate, which has a thicker coating (typically 0.8 mm thick). It is produced by several companies in different pastel shades, types of wood and thickness. It is mainly used for visible parts of furniture such as kitchen doors. It can also be used indoors basically anywhere, with the exception of the outer parts of the bathroom furniture. Not because of its surface but because it uses the edging on the visible parts of bathroom furniture , which in case it should be in a humid environment for a long or longer time , must have the individual parts painted all over.
Semi matt lacquered finish color:
is about four – to five times more expensive than laminate. This is due to the cost of materials and amount of work invested. We mean the paint, which is mostly used on a MDF board with different strengths. Again, you can choose from a wide range of colors. The surface looks livelier and more luxurious than laminate. The paint resists moisture and is therefore suitable for bathrooms and kitchens.
is about four times more expensive than laminate according to the type of wood used and surface finish. It is again due to the value of the material and amount of work invested. It is usually a fiber wood covered mostly by veneer from both sides. There is a wide variety of trees, the possibilities of staining and many different finishes characterized by greater variability in color and luxurious feeling. It can be modified by different natural oils that leave almost no film on the veneer (natural wood look), but protect it from dirt. With this method it is possible to choose from matte surfaces up to a high gloss finish which resists moisture.
Surface glossy lacquered color:
is more expensive than color semi gloss paint. It is due to partially more expensive material but it is mainly because of larger amount of work. As well as with matt color lacquer you can choose from a wide range of colors .It has even same qualities.
is more expensive than veneer surface, depending on tree species. It involves a higher cost of material and greater amount of work. Options are the same as finishes of the veneer surface. It is mostly used on heavy used surfaces such as interior stairs, railings, etc. The interior furniture also largely uses veneered surfaces due to its dimensional stability of the material. In lager pieces solid wood tends” to work” and in the worst case, it can even the bend.
For more information on printed materials, we have a catalog including samplers (We are sorry the catalog is only in Czech.)
Fittings have a major influence on the furniture function , so we use only the highest quality manufacturers such as Blum, Hettich, HAWA, HELM, etc.
For more information about fittings, we have catalogs of the two largest producers. (We are sorry catalogs are only in Czech.)
