EGGER alternative to painted timber provides the perfect solution for designers
With the trend for painted timber remaining as popular as ever, EGGER is encouraging more designers to try its revolutionary range of boards which are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing and available at a significantly lower price point.
EGGER’s ST27 MFC decor range comprises ten carefully selected designs in neutral, solid colours, as well as a painting-grade option effectively a board that can be painted in any choice of colour.
The use of painted timber in domestic kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as occasional furniture, remains an enduring trend – albeit with a hefty price premium.
Painted wood is a style which is still very much in demand for interior and commercial design applications where muted paint tones with a heritage feel can be used to create an elegant, high-value look. But cost and durability are often key factors.
EGGER ST27 has an underlying oak-grain design and comes with matching 0.8mm edging for each décor and a 2mm painting-grade option.
It’s ideal for use in retail space, bars, restaurants and hotel rooms ST27 offers a realistic and low-maintenance alternative to timber without the time-consuming processes that cutting and working with veneers involves, or the amount of waste.
Amy Muir, EGGER category manager for distribution, explains: “At the top end of the market, manufacturers are producing bespoke painted timber products in a range of neutral colours. This approach can be very expensive, whereas the versatility of our ST27 range means it can be used to replicate the highly-popular painted finish effect much more cost effectively.
“We believe that ST27 provides a perfect solution for shop fitters, architects and specifiers as there isn¹t really anything like this in the market. It offers a realistic grain pattern and depth which is produced using a double layer of paper on the board.”
