In the manufacture of MDF does not use toxic substances (epoxy resin or phenol), so they can be safely attributed to the eco-friendly materials. Of course, compared to natural stone or granite is not as practical MDF, but its moisture resistance, resistance to wear and resistance to fungus and micro-organisms is much higher than those same parameters for wood. If necessary, kitchen apron made of MDF can be easily replaced, but not for assembly must be carefully align the wall, as it is attached to the frame with special brackets klyaymerov (A simpler version – stick to the wall panel on "liquid nails"). Finished apron gives this fancy baseboards, moldings and folding corners to hide inside or outside corners. In aprons made of MDF only one drawback – high combustibility, so to use it in the kitchen with a gas stove is not desirable. The exception – one of the latest developments on the basis of MDP, a kind of composite material, where the laminated board 16 mm thick finished with a thin (0.8 mm) sheet of decorative stainless steel. This technology greatly improves the performance of the MDF, increases fire safety apron and facilitates care for him.

But in making material is complicated, so for now that is rare and quite expensive. Give the kitchen a modern look individuality can, using as a kitchen apron glass, but not easy, but tempered, subjected to heat treatment at high temperature (660-740 degrees) and then quenching. Resistance to shocks in the tempered glass is several times greater than normal, but if you do manage to price it to split the enormous effort, the glass will crumble at the smooth small splinters, not injuring people. Glass is easy to clean apron, he does not scratch, does not tarnish the time, is not afraid of chemical exposure and temperature changes near an open flame. For such a wall apron are fixed through pre-drilled holes with special dowels with decorative caps, selected in accordance with the overall design of the room. Between the glass wall of an apron and you can set the backlight to put fotoprinty, pictures or a collage of family recipes. For clear glass looks impressive old brickwork, carefully peeled from the plaster. And if you do not want to align, and decorate a wall, you can use patterned or opaque frosted glass.
