CLEANING AND MAINTAINING A LACQUERED
Kitchen Lacquer kitchen fronts are superb and require very low maintenance, however, they must be cleaned with a damp, soft cloth. If you see a stain, remove it quickly so that it does not penetrate into the successive layers of lacquer.
As far as glossy lacquers are concerned, we advise you to treat and remove stains with a soft cloth and window cleaning product or a neutral soap. The latter are softer and more suitable for the surface.
Before undertaking any cleaning, we advise you to test the product on the internal part of the facade in order to see the result.
We suggest that you avoid these products when it comes time to clean a lacquered surface.
- Scouring products and detergents
- Metallic or scouring sponges
- Ammonia, acetone and alcohol.
The worldwide reputation of Italian lacquer is well-established. Recognized for its splendid finish and its durability, acrylic lacquer, water-based, matte or polished, is a guarantee of refinement.

Lacquer is mainly used on doors, shelves and panels. It is applied to particleboards in a succession of thin coats of paint and thus covers the particleboard. This is what ensures a perfectly smooth and uniform finish as well as excellent durability. Personalized colors can be developed, which allows for an infinite choice of colors.
WHAT IS LACQUER?
Lacquer consists of a wood fiber panel which is covered in a polyester varnish and a polyurethane finish giving a uniform and opaque surface.
TYPES OF LACQUER:
Glossy lacquer: Hand-polished with an artisanal process, the glossy lacquer illuminates the space and gives a sophisticated and luxurious look to the kitchen while increasing the degree of luminosity of the room.
Satin lacquer: With its non-gloss finish, satin lacquer is elegant, timeless and gives a chic look to the kitchen. It goes perfectly with wooden elements.
Structured lacquer: Structured lacquer has a texture with a hint of metallic shimmer and takes on different shades depending on the light it interacts with, giving the material a rich three-dimensional effect. In addition to being very trendy, the texture of structured lacquer is more resistant than other lacquers.
