Starting an Interior designing for your own space and for sure many of us search mainly on the material that a designer provides. We receive lots of suggestions from friends and families mainly on the wood selection. To avoid chaos here are the brief of main wood types that are available at the market mainly for interior works.
Play with Ply
Starting an Interior Design Project and meeting up vendors , designers will be the initial step in all we do. Every vendor or search result on your web will be of plywood. So here is the general note of plyboards . Plywoods are engineered wood sheets made up of flimsy strands of wood veneer calibrated together at 90 degree adjacent.

Let’s know about HDF
High Density Fiberboard (HDF) are similar to MDF ,but are more denser and much stronger and hard because it is made out of exploded wood fiber that are highly compressed. HDF is homogeneous with no grains. These woods can be calibrated.

MDF is not a Villains always
Medium Density Fiber (MDF) and HDF are the two trendiest materials in the market in recent days . HDF is costlier than MDF .These are Engineered wood made by combining wood fibre and glue under immense pressure . The recycled nature of their construction makes them eco-friendly and the pressure used to create these boards made them highly durable.

Budding Star HDHMR
HDHMR is a new wood type that is available in the market. High Density High Moisture Resistant board is an upgraded term of plywood used to create a robust wooden usage. Same as that of HDF and MDF boards HDHMR boards are also homogenous engineered wood made of fibre chips and forest wood waste. From the name we can understand that these woods are best to use in places with high moisture content.

Have ever tried Block Boards
Block Boards made of wooden strips or blocks , placed edge to edge between two layers of thin strip plywood glued together under high pressure. Blockboards are usually made of soft woods.

Part of Particle Boards in Interior
As you read the name Particle we can understand that these are made of sawdust , wooden leftovers that are glued and compressed . Compression is applied to the particle board sheet multiple times to create the tightest possible bond between the resin and the wood bits.The Popular type of Particle board in the market is Oriented Strand Board (OSB).Oriented strand board is easily identifiable by its manufacturing process that layers strands of wood in specific orientations. Most home and commercial builders use OSB particle board for floor and wall bases
Best use of Block Boards
Wood plays the most important role mainly in Interior design industries. It doesn’t mean we are exploiting nature. Wood used for furniture is selected based on their carbon cycle ie., annual growth rings .
