Choosing a Styl-Panel design

When selecting a Styl-Panel design for your furniture, please consider the proportions of your cabinetry. Some designs are better suited to rectangular dimensions. Others are more suited to square door/drawer fronts. As a guide, look at the various ways we offer our designs. For example, Styl-Panel designs to suit IKEA Malm are good for rectangular drawers/doors. Styl-Panel designs to suit IKEA Kallax or Besta (60 x 64) are good for square drawers/doors.

You also need to consider...

Handles

Does the door/drawer have handle(s) on it? Will the panel interfere with the handles? Will the panel need to be drilled?

Margin

With drawers, you have the option of taking the Styl-Panel all the way to the edge or leaving a margin. With doors, it's best to leave a 5-10 mm margin to ensure that the door opens unhindered.

Rounded or beveled edges

Does your door/drawer have a radius (rounded) or beveled edge? If so, base your dimensions on only the flat surface area of the door/drawer. 

Hinges and door opening

With doors, take a look at how the hinge operates. European hinges (the type used in contemporary kitchen cabinetry and with most flat-pack furniture) are some of the most commonly used hinges today. As well as being concealed inside the cupboard, they may be tuned to adjust for different door thicknesses and opening angles.

Take a look at how your cabinet door opens. In most cases, it's advisable to leave at least five millimetres of margin between the edge of the Styl-Panel and the edge of the door. (Remember, the Styl-Panel will add 3 mm of thickness to the door.) Leaving a margin helps to ensure that the door swings freely and opens completely.

Multiple door/drawer sizes

Some custom projects involve multiple sizes - take for instance a dresser that has a row of small drawers at the top, medium drawers in the middle and large drawers at the bottom. Simple designs tend to work best in such instances. Designs that have a lot of internal webbing tend not to work because the internal angles change as the proportion of the design changes.

Simple designs work best where multiple door/drawer sizes are involved.

Maximum dimensions

The maximum dimension in any direction (length or height) is 1000 millmetres (1.0 metre). This is the maximum allowable dimension that standard couriers and shippers accommodate.

Materials

Our standard materials are available for custom orders. That includes 3 mm white paintable foamed PVC and mirrored gold/silver aluminium composite panel. Read more about our materials and finishes

Resizing process

We want you to get the best results possible, and we'll advise you if we believe that your Styl-Panel choice or design needs tweaking.  Our design team is also great at making adjustments to achieve a balanced and well-proportioned result. 

If you accept our quote, we'll then prepare an invoice and email it to you. Once paid, your order will go into our design queue. The design stage usually takes around 10 working days, depending on the complexity of your project.

Our design team will prepare a technical drawing of your custom Styl-Panels and email it to you for approval. This is your opportunity to check the dimensions and the overall look of the design. Following your approval, your Styl-Panels will go into production and then be prepared for dispatch.

How much does it cost?

Custom resizing starts at $49.95 AUD (plus the cost of panels and shipping.)
