Lacquer Cabinets on MDF

$$$

After the design of the MDF panels, these are then sent to the painting department where a coat of lacquer is administered. The lacquer is thus applied in thin successive layers until the desired result is obtained. This process makes it possible to have a wide choice of possible colors and offers an opaque matte finish as much as glossy. The door models available with lacquered MDF are identical to the door models offered by solid wood.
