With the rising prosperity, an increasing number of people are spending high on their home interiors and have started favouring high-quality plywood cabinetry – this in fact is a sign that indicates the recovery of the housing market, thanks to the surge in the demand for real estate.
A majority of us know about plywood’s general nature, though homeowners who haven’t used it much may not understand its high structural strength that’s attributable to its perpendicular veneer layers. But the gradually increasing trend of plywood cabinetry for home interiors is sure to attract the interest of all homeowners soon.
Plywood is a very versatile product for use in an extensive range of interior, exterior and structural applications from internal panelling to formwork. Further, it can be customized to match a wide variety of applications and this makes it a sought-after choice among the homeowners.
Generally, plywood finds use in partitions, drawer boxes, kitchen cabinets, table-tops, shelves, wardrobe and interior decoration. They are generally made using lighter woods and the final finishing is done with a clear coat making it an attractive cover for cabinet interiors. Shuttering plywood is suited for construction of dams, bridges and roofs.
The plywood industry certainly holds a promise! Realizing the potential and the increasing demand, many IT professionals have also started acquiring plywood businesses knowing that it’s a lucrative one considering the increasing demand.
When we talked to industry experts about the recent plywood trend in home construction and renovation, one of them – the CEO of Niki Doors, one of the leading door manufacturers in Bangalore, Mr. Madhusudan Patel, stated – “Plywood is one of the very common materials used in home construction. It is flexible and lightweight features make it a sought-after material for architectural masterpieces. With appropriate sanding and finishing, plywood projects are strong and look fabulous. The final finish is what appeals to most homeowners today, which is why it’s turned out to be the hot trend today.”
He also went on to highlight the immense advantages that plywood can offer, such as -
- Enhanced Stability: Plywood gives all the inherent benefits of the parent wood in addition to improved characteristics in its laminated structure.
- High Stiffness and Strength to Weight Ratio: This property is what makes plywood cost efficient for use in structures like webbed beams, formwork, flooring and shear walls.
- Chemical Resistance: When treated with preservatives, plywood can be used as a durable and cost effective material in cooling towers and chemical works without corrosion problems.
- Surface Dimensional Stability: Plywood’s cross laminated structure makes sure that the sheets remain relatively stable under moisture and temperature changes, which is important in formwork and flooring construction where there are chances of moisture exposure.
The leading building contractors favour plywood for flooring, roofing, sheathing and cabinetry applications knowing the advantages. Many homeowners tend to begin their first plywood project just because they might have had some sheets remaining after a construction project. Once they personally see how beneficial it can be building with plywood, they are most certain to be heading off to the lumber yard for more.
