HPL (High Pressure Laminate) is a finishing material that is known to be strong and has a high level of elasticity. Because of the mixture of wood and acrylic fibers contained in it.

HPL also has various colors and motifs so it is suitable for friends who want to create a home interior with a modern minimalist concept.

This finishing technique uses duco paint and the process is almost similar to the melamic technique, which uses a spray, but with longer duration.

The difference between duco paint and melamic is that the fibers in the furniture will be covered so that a minimalist, luxurious, and clean impression will be seen.

Acrylic material is perfect for friends who like bright and vibrant colors. This material is usually used for modern kitchen.



Hello friends of Bali Interio, joint is a minimalist concept that originally emerged from Zen, the Japanese philosophy of minimizing distractions in order to focus more on paying extraordinary attention to detail and the connection of one of these details in the manufacture of furniture, especially furniture made of wood, rattan or bamboo.

In the world of carpentry, a connection is a combination of two elements of wood with certain techniques to get a more complex shape. In addition to the wood itself, wood grafting techniques can also involve bolts, screws, glue and so on. In addition to adding strength, today’s joints are often exposed to improve the visual quality of the furniture design itself. Each carpentry work in some respects has its own connection characteristics, for example, the connection for furniture with techniques in buildings has various differences.

The main factor in making a connection is strength, therefore one of the things to consider in making a connection is the direction of the wood grain. Incorrect grain direction can lead to wasted connection making. Here are some of the basic types of joints we commonly encounter in carpentry.

butt joint

This connection is the most basic wood connection that brings together the two ends of the wood at a certain angle. These joints require glue or screws to strengthen them. Often in furniture products knock down with the help of a fisher at the end of the wood that will meet the end of the coupler. To get a perfect angle, the pieces of wood on one or both of the wood must be perfectly shaped so as to eliminate gaps that can reduce the strength of the connection. Also known as a sweet joint.

Dado Combination

This joint is a simple type of T joint, providing a gap in the board so that the verticals can fit the horizontal boards inside. This joint usually combines glue and strategy for strength. With gaps or trenches in a part of the board, the T-joint made is stronger than the regular tail-joint because it doesn’t slide easily.

Rabbit Joint

This connection is a type of L connection located at the end of the wood. It has better strength compared to the regular tail connection but requires more effort. Both rabbet and dado connections usually use a router for their manufacture in order to get precise, clean, and consistent results.

finger joints

This connection is an extension of the tail joint type. So that the strength is built in a well balanced way in each wood as well as in each gap. The strength of this connection is higher by one level of connection dado and rabbet and can be exported using either two or one type of wood.

Pass Connection

This joint is one of the favorite joints in furniture making. Can be exposed by using two different types of wood materials so that the color of each wood provides a blend of contrasting color differences. In terms of strength, this joint is an improvement over the finger joint because it locks at one point of tension as well as changes in angle. Compared to the past, using either a bench or a hand router is now much easier because the manufacture of router bits (router bits) of various sizes are made. Dovetail consists of three types namely full, half and shear. Sliding dovetails are usually used to make T joints.


Dowels are cylindrical pieces of wood that are plain or threaded to function as holding the two pieces of wood together and installed like pegs by applying glue beforehand. These joints can be exposed to show off and the strength of the joints made with this technique. Dowels can also be used as a complement to other connection techniques to have a level of strength one level above it.

Pocket Connection

This joint uses the force to join two pieces of wood by creating a slanted path to insert it. After locking the two pieces of wood, usually the resulting hole will be covered with wood putty to ensure that when it’s finished there’s no space that doesn’t look good. To make a hole with an accurate slope and the same as the others, a certain jig is usually used.

Half Round Joint

This connection uses each half to get the desired angle with the aim that the strength is evenly distributed in the two wood materials that are joined. These joints can also be used with glue or solutions, but in certain sizes, these joints with precise measurements can strengthen other joints in more complex constructions.

Tongue joint

Using a router, tongue joints are usually used to make large plank sheets from joining the boards on the sides. For example, to make a door leaf or a table top from solid wood boards. This connection usually uses glue as reinforcement and then presses using rope, technical glue or other pressing each edge so that the gap between the boards is completely closed. This connection is like connecting the bottom of the letter T with the letter U.

Mortise connection

This connection is made by inserting part of one piece of wood into a hole in the other. The holes and ends of the wood made for these joints are usually squares made using a bench mortice tool that can make box holes. Although it can be re-strengthened with styling or dowels, usually the use of wood glue is sufficient and does not result in other exposed materials. This connection technique we usually encounter in old wooden chairs.

Biscuit joint

This connection to make a wide wood can also use biscuits together. This connection is a wood edge connection by making paths or holes on both sides of the wood and tucking the wood in the holes between the wood. This method usually uses thinner pieces of wood that are stronger than the base wood. For example, to tuck in between mahogany, use teak wood and so on with wood glue.


Hello friends of Bali Interio, are you tired of the kitchen and want to renovate? Or you just want to design a kitchen but are still confused about the material for the kitchen set? Right now, we will discuss about the advantages and disadvantages of materials commonly used in making kitchen sets. Read to the end, don’t miss anything!

Solid Wood

This material is the most commonly used material if you want to make a kitchen set. The nature of the wood is not too much, the stock is always there, the type, and can choose the reason why many people use solid wood as a material for making kitchen sets. Melia wood, teak wood, mindi wood, and Indian rosewood are some types of solid wood that are commonly used in making kitchen sets.

Solid wood material has several other advantages, including the availability of many choices of colors, fibers, and textures, as well as its sturdiness which can make the kitchen set more durable and accompanied by regular maintenance.

However, with all the advantages offered, of course we have to pay dearly for production and maintenance costs. Solid wood is very sensitive to air humidity, so we need to really pay attention to air humidity because it can affect the quality of the wood surface


Multiplex is a layered wood that is pressed under high pressure. The texture of the dense wood layer makes the multiplex more sturdy and resistant to air, so the multiplex is the right choice if you want to make a kitchen set in a wet kitchen.
The combination of wood fibers and bark where the outer surface is stronger than the middle surface makes the multiplex more resistant to expansion and not easy to bend. Multiplex can last up to 10 years if we use and care for it properly.
Multiplex has a fairly expensive price because of the quality offered, but the price is not as expensive as solid wood. So this can be a solution as a substitute for solid wood if your budget is not sufficient.

block board

Blockboard has multiplex, only the blockboard layer is made of pieces of wood arranged horizontally, while the multiplex layer is arranged vertically. One type of wood used is sea sengon, a type of wood that is sturdy and water resistant. However, even so, the water absorption capacity of the blockboard is not too high. For those of you who have a limited budget, blockboard can be a solution because it has a relatively cheap price compared to multiplex.

Metal (Stainless steel and Aluminum)

Kitchen sets that use metal are usually often used in restaurants. This material has a fairly expensive price. Metal can give a unique appearance. Stainless steel and aluminum have several advantages, including durability, rust and stain resistance. This material is also unaffected by heat and humidity. The aluminum material is easy to scrub and clean, so it won’t get dirty from the spices and pans stored in the kitchen.
But my goodness, the choice of colors for this material is very limited. When polishing rust or rust, it may need to be re-polished. Metal surfaces and fingerprints will be clearly visible. This material is also easy to bend.

Hopefully this article can help you in choosing the right materials to make the kitchen of your dreams!


Hello friends of Bali Interio, partition is a field that is used as a space separator that is designed to be non-permanent. Its function is to separate the space so that it remains spacious even though it is divided into two or more rooms. Apart from being a room divider, now partitions also have other functions and purposes, namely as a space aesthetic provider or decorative element. Here are some types of space partitions that can be used for minimalist spaces:

Multifunctional Glass Partition

This type of practitioner can work not only as a space divider but can also have storage to store things.

Shelf Partition

The use of a shelf-shaped partition model is the most appropriate choice for a minimalist room. Besides being able to function as a barrier, this room divider also increases the functionality of the space, which is also storage. This storage can be filled with books, decorations or photos according to residents’ wishes.

Vertical Wooden Partition with Storage

This type of partition uses vertically mounted wooden beams complete with storage to fill the partition.

Minimalist room partitions usually have a very simple shape, in accordance with the principles of minimalism itself. Some things that can be considered in looking for a partition for residence are looking for a minimal partition with other colors or choosing a soft color. Before designing the partition that will be used for housing, you should first see which room will be used for the partition. If the room to be partitioned looks quite narrow, then a minimalist hollow partition design can be an option.


Hello friends of Bali Interio, in addition to the sound produced, the sound also maintains the speed of sound so as not to make the room feel too quiet. The silencer is able to control the sound in the room to find the ideal level, which is 55 dBA.

| Material Working Principle |

In principle, sound works by applying an acoustic system in the room. Acoustics itself is the principle of sound arrangement that precipitates and absorbs sound in a closed room. This material comes from originating from one room that affects other rooms.

By installing sound, the sound produced in the room will sound more natural and clear. Not surprisingly, this material is applied to music studios and cinemas to produce higher sound quality.

| Type of Acoustic Material |

PET Material

Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is the material most often used by major manufacturers because of its ability to absorb and absorb sound at the same time. In addition, PET is also very easy to shape so it is easy to adjust to the size and shape of the room. This sound installation is very practical because it does not require a frame. Installation of PET on the surface of walls, floors, and ceilings can be done directly by using adhesive tools such as nails, yellow glue, or double-sided tape.

The appearance of the sound color of PET is quite varied, very flexible to match the interior design of the room used. Regarding the dangers of the chemical content in PET, this material is made from recycled plastic so it is more environmentally friendly.


This type is a material made of fiberglass. For the texture, it is similar to fleece or wool. The thickness of the material itself is about 2.5 cm – 5 cm with a density or density of about 25 g/cm³ to 75 g/cm³. You can find glasswool material on the market in the form of rolls with a length range of 30 meters.


Rockwool is made of lightweight mineral fibers that can absorb sound and heat. At first glance this material is similar to glasswool, only the density of rockwool material is higher with a range of 30 g/cm³ – 100 g/cm³. Therefore, many use rockwool as a second layer of glasswool silencer. If you want to be interested in this material, you can make sheets or rolls.


Greenwool is a material made of polyester fiber with water resistance or hydrophobic properties so that it is difficult to affect air humidity. Actually, this green sound material from the beginning considered that glasswool and rockwool materials were not good for health. Yes, thanks to the basic material in the form of polyester, green wool is considered safer and less dangerous.

For installation, this material can be affixed or planted on the surface of the wall. Kania advises, you should use two layers of greenwool so that noise can be muffled to the maximum.

Egg Foam

Egg foam material has a fairly light weight and is easy to apply. However, this material is not optimal enough to be considered high-frequency sound. As an alternative, you can use egg foam material as an additional soundproofing layer.

Soft Board

Softboard is a material made of sound made of polyester fiber. Its thickness is around 1.2 cm and generally the softboard is brown like the color of wood. You can use this material to be considered an echo and absorb excessive sound. For installation, softboard material is usually wrapped with cloth or wallpaper that is not noisy.

Natural Silencer

In addition to using various materials, sound regulation in the room can also be done by utilizing ornaments and objects that have the ability to absorb sound. Carpets that cover the entire floor of the room and books that fill the walls can be used as natural sounds.


Soundproofing in hardwood or tile requires underlayment and subfloor to reduce your transmission.

Gypsum Board Material

As a room divider, gypsum material has many advantages, starting to be resistant to fire, resistant to earthquake shocks, and making the room cool faster. Not only that, gypsum can also be a soundproofing in the room because it has an acoustic function. The acoustic function of gypsum includes two things, namely soundproofing and sound absorption.

Hello friends of Bali Interio, High Pressure Laminate or HPL is one of the finishing materials which is one of the finishing materials commonly used for furniture products and interior surfaces, especially for multiplex furniture. HPL can be applied to cabinets, kitchen sets, or other home decoration surface coverings. With the increasing demand for environmentally friendly materials, HPL is becoming one of the most popular products for furniture and decorative finishing. Therefore, let’s learn some tips on how to care for furniture that uses HPL finishing.

The first step

Do not place HPL furniture in places that are too hot, such as near a window or in direct sunlight.

second step

Avoid placing plastic, rubber or acrylic materials (directly) on the furniture. The chemicals in this product can react with the final product and cause damage. To avoid this, use a cloth base on the surface of the furniture.

third step

When using furniture as a study table or work desk, use a base or protector on the furniture surface. Pens or pencils can easily leave marks and spoil the finish.

fourth step

Daily use of a clean, soft, lint-free cloth to remove dust will keep your furniture beautiful as it ages.

Two Color Curtains

If you get a hard-to-remove stain like coffee grounds, use a baking soda mixture and rub gently until the stain is gone. If this method still doesn’t work, you can use thinner.

“These are our tips. Hopefully useful and can be applied properly to maintain the quality of your furniture!”
