Core Range - Linoleum Surfaced Plywood 

Linoleum is an inviting material, with a tactile finish that is warm and comforting.  It offers the perfect high end kitchen surface material that is robust, long lasting and environmentally friendly.  The unique matt finish resists marks and fingerprints.  The linoleum is applied to a substrate of birch plywood, the best plywood in the world for joinery, to create a beautiful panel suitable for doors, drawer faces, panels, kickboards and counter-tops.   Expressed plywood edges complete the architectural detail of these panels for a look that is distinctive and refined.  Can be ordered in any of the four Core Handle designs, including the 'Hole' designed in collaboration with Interia.

Product Information

Drawer Fronts, Doors and Panels

You can order the Linoleum Surfaced Plywood Core Range in all of the sizes required to fit the METOD kitchen carcass system from IKEA.  


The fronts are made from 18mm 'A/B Grade' Chain of Custody Certified Birch Plywood with Multiedge Laminations, surfaced on the front face with 2mm thick Furniture Linoleum, and on the back face with .7mm thick white laminate. Total thickness of panel is approximately 21mm.  The surfacing of the Furniture Linoleum is done under high pressure to ensure lifetime bonding.  The Chain of Custody Certification ensures the timber is from responsible forestry practices.

The fronts are available 'Straight off the Saw' requiring sanding and finishing to the edges or 'Edge Finished' where all edges have been sanded and finished with two coats of a natural hardwax.


The Furniture Linoleum is available in 'Nero' colourways with a further 20 colours available with an increased minimum purchase required (see order sheet) and up to 12 weeks lead time.  Download the linoleum brochure with the colours represented here.


Furniture Linoleum is an all natural, environmentally responsible material that is antistatic and very easy to clean without the use of harsh chemicals.  The matt finish is finger print resistant.


If you need doors 140cm tall or more, we recommend ordering an MDF linoleum surfaced door with sympathetic edging, to avoid too much movement in the door (see 'A Word About PLY'). We can still supply you with tall plywood doors, but at your own risk.



Available handles for the Linoleum Surfaced Plywood Core Range are as follows:

'Finger Pull' - a circular cut out approx. 40mm diameter, suitable for doors or drawers (see main image above)

'Cut Out  - a rectangular cut out at top of door or drawer approx. 130mm wide x 28mm deep

'Hole' - a solid timber sleeve for finger pull, designed in collaboration with Interia, available in Blackbutt, Celery Top Pine or Oak (see images above)

'Plain Door' - no cut outs in door or drawer face, suitable for IKEA push to open system or to apply your own handle

For further information about handles - see Handles




You can order the Linoleum Surfaced Plywood Core Range in panels suitable for counter-tops.  We strongly suggest ordering a sample of furniture linoleum before ordering it as a counter-top.  Counter-top panel thicknesses available are approximately 21mm (substrate of 18mm birch ply) and 33mm (substrate of 30mm birch ply).  We do not recommend overhanging the 21mm thick counter-top by more than 20mm, and the 33mm thick counter-top by more than 200mm.

The range of Laminated Plywood Counter-tops are also suitable for pairing with the Linoleum Surfaced Plywood fronts.
