We will not settle for sub-standard. We only like to use the best materials and have something to offer everyone – if your budget won’t cater to plywood then why not opt for MDF? We aren’t in the business of slandering either plywood or MDF – both have their advantages! Just rest assured that we use the finest quality MDF with low levels of formaldehyde and our birch ply is always FSC certified Grade S+/BB (this just means it’s the highest quality commercially available and gives a consistent look).
MDF (that’s Medium Density Fibreboard) is a great option for those with a tighter budget. MDF is very stable and will not warp, expand or contract in changes in temperature or humidity. Made from very fine particles, this gives a grain free silky smooth finish to paint onto – there’s a reason why so many people use MDF for their kitchen cabinet doors! Our MDF is always low formaldehyde and of the highest quality.
Birch Plywood provides a subtle, yet beautiful grain texture whether lacquered or painted. Durable and strong, there’s no surprise it is a very popular choice to use within kitchens. Whilst Birch Plywood has slightly lower levels of chemical emissions, particularly the organic compound formaldehyde, no timber is completely VOC free.
