Decorative panels are awesome. However, for some cabinet makers, fit-out companies and DIYers dreaming up interesting designs can be tough — sometimes inspiration just won’t come. In this post, we explain how we have made making a decorative panel easy.

Uses for decorative panels

Decorative panels can be created for many uses:

  • As a feature: They’re great for adding another dimension to a room.
  • For noise reduction: They are an attractive way to keep out unwanted sounds.
  • They can hide faults: Don’t put up with a horrible stucco wall. Cover it up.
  • For privacy: They're fantastic for creating private workspaces in open-plan offices.

So, what’s the problem?

As we mentioned above, it is sometimes hard to come up with great design ideas.

With the Cutshop expertise and top-rate machinery, all you have to do is draw what you want - and we'll make it.  But, what if you don't know what to draw?

A decorative panel library

This is why we are developing a decorative panel library, which will be available from  December onwards, initially via request and on display in our showroom.  We’ll also be posting new designs on Facebook and Pinterest, and next year will have a dedicated page on our website.  We’ll be regularly adding new patterns to the library so there is always something fresh and on-trend.

What are they made of?

Our decorative patterns will be available on three substrates:

1.     MDF (needs to be painted)

2.    PLY (needs to be oiled or varnished)

3.    Solid Surface or Acrylic (needs no finishing)

These three substrate options will allow you to get decorative panels for a range of situations, including in the kitchen (painted), in a hall (feature wall), or even outside (privacy screen).


  • 2440 x 1220 mm: This is the size of a standard sheet of MDF, Ply or Acrylic
  • 3660 x 760 mm: This is the biggest size sheet of solid surface available.
  • 360 x 360 mm tile: This option is a cost-effective solution if you want to use the pattern in a small area of the house and don’t need a whole sheet.


The price is dependent on the size, complexity of cut and finishes you require.

When inspiration strikes

Of course, we have no intentions of stifling your creative muse. So, if you have come up with a fantastic original idea, that’s great. We can make it a reality.

Our library is available for viewing at Cutshop franchise showrooms from early December - get in touch to find out more.
