Wall components useful for the hall:
- Shelves for books;
- Place for technology (TV or music center);
- Lower niche for DVD player;
- Display shelves for dishes;
Based on the layout of the house, they think over what functions the selected furniture should combine. For example, wardrobes are not provided in every wall.
Modular wall elements are made of wooden materials of various processing, it can be MDF, chipboard or fiberboard with veneer of materials such as cherry, oak, walnut, or use natural solid wood.
MDF is a board, which is vacuum compressed wood dust. This composition is used for the manufacture of furniture for the home or office. The composition does not include elements harmful and dangerous to humans, the cabinet furniture produced is distinguished by increased strength. Decoding MDF – fine fractions. MDF boards for furniture are gaining popularity, despite the high price of the material, comparing with chipboard.
Chipboard (chipboard) is a widely known and most frequently used material for cabinet-class furniture. Wood chips are held together with formaldehyde resins, this is the biggest disadvantage of this type of material. The problem is that the composition releases formaldehyde into the air, a substance harmful to human health. This chipboard is disadvantageously different from MDF boards..
However, you can choose a safer type of chipboard, pay attention to the country of manufacture and the class of chipboard. German and Austrian chipboard manufacturers are famous for the greatest environmental friendliness of the material. As for the chipboard class, there are two of them, the quality of the E1 class is higher, E2 is prohibited in the manufacture of children’s furniture.
There are laminated chipboard panels covered with a special textured layer. The decorative layer can be attached not only by lamination, but also by laminating.
Note! When purchasing furniture from chipboard, check what technology was used in the manufacture. The fact is that the final cost is practically the same, but the quality can be completely different. The lined panel is almost the same in appearance, but the film on it begins to peel off from the corners and around the edges pretty soon.
Features of fiberboard
Fiberboard is the usual “seamy” side of our furniture. The back side and inner drawers of the cabinets are made of this material. Fiberboard is sheets made by wet pressing, wood particles (wood dust), bonded by steaming. The sheets are rough to the touch, during production they are covered with a film, and the surface becomes laminated or laminated. Due to the specifics of the manufacture of fiberboard can only be thin sheets. Most of the strength of sheets has already been tested in practice. For an expensive series of furniture, fiberboard is replaced by plywood, there is almost no practical difference in use and strength.
Solid wood furniture
Natural wood requires careful processing, in order to obtain a high quality material, the conditions for drying and storing the tree are important, as well as the conditions in which this tree grew. This complicates manufacturing and increases the final cost of the product. Furniture made of solid natural wood is considered elite and not everyone can afford it. The aesthetic appearance of the model, identical to natural wood, is achieved in an economical way, using MDF and chipboard materials and covering with the desired veneer. Therefore, natural wood furniture is not so popular when choosing slides for the living room..
