No longer are the places in which we live simply our homes – now they must also offer be our offices, gyms, children’s classrooms, and the places we entertain ourselves, inspiring an unprecedented number of people to make home repairs, improvements and upgrades (up +35.6% last summer, says the ONS). Fortunately, MEDITE is here to lend a hand …
Unsurprisingly, a major trend for 2021 is the concept of multi-functional spaces – particularly when it comes to living rooms. Indeed, Forbes indicated late last year that single-purpose spaces and furnishings were becoming unfashionable because of the need to adapt living spaces to accommodate a new work/life balance.
Creating a multi-functional space with bespoke furnishings to suit the user’s needs may sound challenging, but is actually easier than one might think, states Irish MDF and OSB producer, MEDITE SMARTPLY, which continues to develop innovative, versatile and sustainable building products, suitable for bespoke interior fit-outs and refurbishments.
The brand has even launched a new members community (www.meditemakesitreal.com), enabling MDF enthusiasts to share their work, gain inspiration, and benefit from prizes that will help facilitate bigger and better work with MDF.
For an example of how MEDITE can help with the creation of inspiring fit-outs and furnishings, just take a look at how its MDF panels were used to create a bespoke, art deco-inspired home in South Kensington (pictured).
The interiors were designed and created especially for the project by Infinitus Bespoke Interiors using MDF panels – including MEDITE MR, which features special moisture-resistant properties. Each room was designed to reflect the sleek opulence of the 1930s and 40s, with each space boasting a unique character. The bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas were refitted to incorporate smooth, clean lines, high-gloss surfaces, mirror cladding and ambient lighting, while the installation of a bar and cinema room further embodied the period’s elegance.
Featuring a smooth surface and consistent density throughout, MEDITE MR is ideal for machining into bespoke shapes and cabinetry. As a moisture-resistant MDF panel, it is also suitable for use in humid indoor conditions, making it popular for kitchen and bathroom installations, among many others. It is also a good substitute for softwoods or hardwoods when more machining flexibility is required. “If you’ve an idea, MEDITE can make it real,” states the producer.
The extensive range includes 10 different families of MDF products and many variants, with over 400 possible specifications. Through consistent commitment to R&D and ongoing investment in technology, MEDITE has introduced a wide variety of quality products and customer-led innovations, establishing itself as a leading brand in the MDF market.
