Material Guide:

At Lakdi, we truly believe that quality in a service or product is not what you put into it. It is what the client or customer gets out of it.”

This section will provide the basic information about the material guide:

Types of Woods:

Over long history of furniture crafting, woods have been used in various ways to give rise to plethora of styles. We use different types of woods like particle board, medium density fibre board, waterproof plywood and many more. Particle Board comprises of wood chips glued together and pressed to form sheets, It bends well because it has low density and weight, It helps to reduce construction costs and are available in wide variety of colour options as well. Medium Density Fibre Board is an engineered wood pulp, made by breaking down real wood remnants into wood fibers. It is then glued using special resin and by applying high pressure and temperature. It is available in a variety of colours, textures and shades. It is cheaper than plywood,It is a good substrate for veneer.Being consistent, its edges remain smooth without any splinters or voids.The advantage of having smooth edges is that it can take on decorative edges, scalloped or scroll designs.Waterproof Plywood has high resistance to water exposure, in fact much better than solid wood and can be covered with decorative laminates or veneers giving it a finish that suits your needs.It can withstand severe temperatures.It is highly durable. The grains of the veneers of this wood are perpendicular to each other, thus preventing any possibility of warping and instead making it stronger.It is borer and termite-free.

Types of fabrics:

Some commonly used fabrics for making upholstered furniture are acrylic, cotton, nylon, polyster. Acrylic is a fiber with a soft wooly feeling; fair resistance to sunlight, Cotton has fair resistance to sunlight and is also an ideal fabric for everyday use furniture, Nylon helps to prevent water from sneaking through the holes between the fibers.Polyster has a fair resistance to water and fire as well, Rayon has high absorbency and when blended with polyester, it makes for a great upholstery fabric.

Types of Hardware:

We use premium quality hardware products such as knobs, rails, rods, pulls, and handles Along with various furniture styles and themes, household hardware is also available in a tremendous variety. Before buying any separate fixtures for your cabinets, drawers, wardrobes duly consider which style, shape, and material will look best in your space and choose accordingly.

Types Of Glass:

Glass panels on furniture make a powerful style statement and give a light and airy look to a contemporary home. Each beautifully crafted piece is designed with aesthetic value and functions in mind and will instantly transform a room into a spacious and inviting living area. Some types of glasses used for furniture are Tempered glass or Toughened Glass, Tinted glass and Painted Glass.Tempered glass or Toughened Glass is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass.Tinted glass refers to any glass that has been treated with a material such as a film or coating that reduces the transmission of light through it. Glass can be tinted with various types of coating, which block and/or reflect different amounts and types of light, according to the needs and preferences of the consumer.Painted glass makes it possible to incorporate whites, pastels and soft earth tones in your designs.

Types of Metals:

Metal is a highly versatile material, used for making of furniture. Most commonly used  metals are stainless steel, carbon steel, brass and bronze. Stainless Steel does not stain, corrode or rust as easily as ordinary steel. There are different grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit the environment to which the material will be subjected in its lifetime.Carbon steel is sometimes referred to as ‘mild steel’ or ‘plain carbon steel’ makes up the largest part of steel production and is used in a vast range of applications. Typically carbon steels are stiff and strong. Some form of protective coating is used so that it doesn’t rust if used in a corrosive environment.Brass is a metal alloy made of copper and zinc; the proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of brasses with varying properties. Brass is used for decoration for its bright gold-like appearance. Bronze is far more resilient to everyday wear and tear which is one of the main reasons that it is the number one choice for many customers.
