Materials Spotlight: Kronospan

By Jay Hawkinson

As one of the very few cabinet designers and manufacturers in the state of Colorado that use and recommend Kronospan and their Kronodesign® products, we want to share more information about this company and why we often select them in our home interior design projects for kitchen, bath and closet spaces.


When it comes to cabinetry, the material you choose is critical. It affects not only the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen or workspace but also its durability and functionality. Enter Kronospan, a name synonymous with quality and innovation in the world of wood-based panels. But who and what exactly is Kronospan, and why is it considered a top choice for cabinets? Let’s dive in.

### Who is Kronospan?

Kronospan is a global leader in the manufacturing of wood-based panels and associated products. Founded in 1897, this company has grown to become a pivotal player in the industry, with production sites in numerous countries around the world. Kronospan’s extensive range of products includes particle boards, medium density fiberboards (MDF), laminate flooring, and most notably, their Kronodesign® collection, which offers an array of high-quality decorative surfaces. Kronospan also employs the circular economy model in their production.

What is circular economy? The circular economy offers a transformative approach to production and consumption, emphasizing the reuse, repair, refurbishment, and recycling of materials to create a closed-loop system. This model reduces waste and environmental impact, conserves natural resources, and minimizes carbon emissions. As practitioners of circular economy principles, Kronospan is an ideal manufacturer for Boulder and throughout the Front Range, the surrounding Denver area, in the environmentally conscious state of Colorado.
