Beautiful kitchen
Even the most complex facades can be done if you want to

While, that today DIY stores offer a wide selection of different panels and components, independent production of food for such a person is not a problem. Let's find out, how is the production of kitchen fronts.

Separate manufacturing of kitchen furniture


Manufacture of food begins with the creation of the future of furniture design. This project should take into account several factors,.

count, the main thing that homemade facade of the cost was not too expensive, and the meaning is lost

Price future of kitchen furniture is formed of several major articles. by experience, Fifty percent of the cost of the food - it's facades. The most expensive - the facades from an array. Making facades of cheaper materials will significantly reduce the percentage of the total cost.

A larger share of the price takes fittings. When selected required to comply with the price and quality balance. Too cheap components likely to last for long. While the choice of materials, which today is, you can always pick up the hardware quality and relatively inexpensive.

The road can be tabletop. Therefore, her choice should be careful to treat. It must be sufficiently robust and easy to operate.

From panels of material also depends on the cost structure. Make furniture the hands of the EAF will be cheaper, than to collect furniture from MDF with his own hands.

To furniture assembly took place without problems, you need to prepare drawings of each table and closet. Define at their place of side walls and shelves, how to install and mount the facades and countertop.

In the rear wall and the worktop when necessary is required to determine the place of accommodation outlets. If the socket is already installed on the walls, the rear, the lower and upper panels do not interfere with the inclusion of devices.

With places of accommodation outlets defined in advance

Is the kitchen with his hands in compliance with the standards of accommodation. So, Sink should not be placed in close proximity to the stove or heater.

It should be considered accepted standard sizes of kitchen furniture parts. For example, common width of countertop 600 mm. The length of the tables and cabinets the facade can range from 500 to 800 mm. adhere to these dimensions required because sold blank panels and facades are made in such standards.

Technology manufacture of furniture from particle board with their own hands It involves working in several stages.


  1. For the manufacture of wall panels, as well as tables and shelves of cabinets used laminated chipboard. If there is a possibility, you need to buy a ready-made panels, which correspond to the desired size. If this is not possible, purchased a large sheet of laminated chipboard size 1830 × 2440 mm. Thickness is customary to use sheets 16 mm.
  2. Acquired material verified by size, and if necessary rascherchivaetsya sawn through jigsaw. Cutting can be ordered in store, but there is not always guarantee quality.
  3. We need to seal the sawed panels bokovinki, to DSP not crumbled. This is called edging. To do this, you can use simple PVC film. The film adhesive is planted using iron through a sheet of paper. For edging, you can use a special plastic laths.
  4. Assembling of furniture made of particleboard made with their own hands with the help of clamps, which are fixed panel designs to maintain the shape and the desired angles.
  5. After that, as a cabinet or table compiled, prior to installation of facades, they put in place and check the compatibility of the whole kitchen.
  6. Facade of kitchen furniture set in the least, after fixing countertops.

Fitted facade CPD is the most economical for this, in conditions, when the budget for the installation of the furniture is not large enough.

Most often used in the postforming sheets covering chipboard with rounded edges radius 8 or 10 mm. In this case, such plates are more durable and resistant to moisture.
