MDF Wardrobe Doors
Manorhouse MDF wardrobe doors with 60 / 40 split.
These can be finished in any paint finish and you could use two colours to enhance the look and make the panels stand out.
Like all our doors, we can make these to any size. Our wardrobe doors page has more information.
We can make them with a single pattern or with two patterns side by side if there is enough room. Contact us if you are interested in these, with a sketch if possible.
Approximate size 1759 mm x 400 mm.
Integrated handles for MDF doors
This is an example of an integrated handle Oslo style door. It's a great solution if you want a very slick, clean look without handles on any door or drawer fronts. It also overcomes that tricky problem of having to choose door handles!
We only make these in in 22mm MDF and are unable to wrap in vinyl so a painted finish will be required.
If you are interested in this design then please visit our styles page or contact us direct as you cannot order these online.
Shaker MDF Kitchen Door
The shaker kitchen door is always popular and this shows a detailed image of a square edged MDF shaker Kitchen door and drawer front.
The centre panel is routed with a 12.7mm (1/2 inch) cutter giving 6.35mm (1/4 inch) internal radius. Other options are available - see our styles page.
Our standard range of Shaker doors have 65mm rails. We can also make shaker doors with rails of any width.
Tips for Painting MDF Kitchen doors
Before you prime, give the doors a good sand using a flat sander or a cork sanding block on any flat areas, as this will knock any high points off. 150 grit paper is good for this.
When you prime the MDF doors, make sure you paint the front and back in one session. If you paint one side and leave the other too long the door may bow due to uneven moisture content. Prime with a water based quick dry acrylic primer, then you can use any Farrow and Ball or Dulux colours.
After your first coat of primer a lot of fibres will expand. This is natural due to the wood fibres expanding when wet.
More sanding I'm afraid! This is the key stage; a good sanding will give you a better final finish.
You will need a second coat of primer and sometimes a third coat, sanded in between.
You are now ready for your top coat. You may get away with one but may need two coats.
You should now have a fantastic looking MDF kitchen door!
MDF panels and Angled Panels
How often do you look at that space under the stairs and think it would be a good idea to turn it into a cupboard? MDF panels make that option very easy to achieve and cost effective too. Because we make all our MDF panels in-house, we can make any size including angled panels. We can also make MDF angled doors to match if required.
This example is machined in MR MDF and ready for painting.Moisture resistant MDF (MR MDF) has better qualities for paint finishes than standard MDF. The core is denser and the faces are flatter giving a smooth finish.
MR MDF is usually dyed green for identification purposes only, this can be a very light tint to a very dark green depending on the manufacturer. So don't worry if it's green when it arrives!
One big advantage of using raw MDF is the option of trimming the doors and panels on site , particularly important for angled panels.
MDF Angled Doors
This is an example of a Milano style MDF door angled and cut out and recessed for glass or mirror. Great for a bedroom wardrobe door or feature cupboard door and they can be used with vinyls so your colour and finish options are huge.
Standard rebate size is 10mm x 10mm.
If you want angled doors we will need to know the short and the tall height plus the width. Contact us if you have specific requirements or want to discuss your angled door requirements in depth. A simple sketch with dimensions and hinge hole locations is very helpful to us.
MDF Cupboard Doors
We made these curved top Manor style MDF cupboard doors to fit into a fire place recess.
This really demonstrates that because we make all our cupboard doors, we can be very flexible and custom make a solution just for you.
Decorative MDF panels and doors
This is a fantastic example of the stunning decorative effects we can achieve with MDF panels. Just imagine how stunning an end panel would look on a wardrobe, cupboard or even on a wall.
These panels show a decorative floral pattern that was machined onto a pair of doors for a restaurant.
We can machine complex panels and doors but only from customer supplied designs. We can take CAD files in various formats including DWG, DXF and vector files created by Illustrator and CorelDraw so if you have something in mind contact us to discuss it.
Creating good designs can take time and so the lead time for these projects is a lot longer.
The final pattern detail will be limited by the size of the router cutter. 4.7mm diameter is usually the minimium size we can achieve.
