Material guide

Veneer is made from selected thin slices of wood that are precisely cut from tree trunks. Veneer furniture is typically more lightweight and economical than solid wood furniture. The attractive wood surface is preserved, featuring beautiful knots, shades and grains arising from many years of life in nature and making every piece of furniture unique. Wood is a living material and reacts to daily use. For example, prolonged exposure to light will affect the surface and cause the shades to change. “Light spots” can be avoided by positioning the furniture in different parts of your home over time.

Daily cleaning is done with a damp cloth and more thorough cleaning is done with soapy water, after which the surface is wiped dry with a clean cloth to avoid streaks. Our veneer furniture is available with many different types of surface treatments, and we refer you to the care instructions for each individual product. Take care to never place tea lights, pots or other hot objects directly on the surface, as this may leave permanent marks.

Our solid wood products are made from multiple boards that are skilfully sorted before assembly. A massive surface provides an elegant and exclusive look. No two boards will ever be the same, as differences are always apparent in grain structure, knots and shades – this natural beauty makes solid wood products unique.

Daily cleaning is done with a damp cloth and more thorough cleaning is done with soapy water. The surface can be wiped dry with a clean cloth to avoid streaks. Our veneer furniture is available with many different types of surface treatments, and we refer you to the care instructions for each individual product. We always recommend that our solid wood furniture is sanded and treated with a Bolia care product before use. This ensures a beautiful piece of furniture and a surface with optimum durability. Take care to never place tea lights, pots or other hot objects directly on the surface, as this may leave permanent marks.

Linoleum is an environmentally friendly and sustainable natural material. Linoleum comes in a range of beautiful colours and is attached to plywood or MDF. It is a living product and small scratches in the surface will disappear with use. Linoleum is robust and durable, but never use sharp objects directly against the surface.

Take care to never place tea lights, pots or other hot objects directly on the surface, as this may leave permanent marks or even cause cracks. Red wine, beetroot juice and other strong fruit colours may discolour the surface and must be removed immediately in the event of spills. Linoleum countertops are pre-treated with a care product, but we recommend the use of Bolia Linoleum Care before use – repeat as necessary until the surface is saturated. To maintain flexibility and prevent the surface from drying out, regular care is vital – the surface must never feel dry to the touch.

If the surface feels greasy or sticky, it may be a sign of over-treatment and the entire surface should be cleaned with Linoleum Cleaner.

Our laminate and HPL (High Pressure Laminate) products are beautiful, minimalist and easy to maintain. Laminate is most frequently seen in white, but also comes in specially selected colours. Our designers love this type of surface, as it combines a wide range of possibilities with a stylish and elegant look.

Daily cleaning is done with a damp cloth. For more thorough cleaning, we recommended you use Bolia Laminate Cleaner, which goes into far greater depth and removes both lines and spots. The surface is then wiped dry with a clean cloth to avoid streaks. Do not use scouring powder or sponges, as these tend to scratch and dull the surface. Take care to never place tea lights, pots or other hot objects directly on the surface, as this may leave permanent marks.

Fiberglass consists of thin strands of glass, woven into a rug and subsequently moulded and glued. Our fiberglass furniture has a spray coating that ensures a beautiful and easy to maintain surface.

Everyday cleaning should be with a slightly damp cloth. Never use abrasive cleaners such as scouring powder and cream, as these can scrape and scratch the surface.

Marble is enjoying a new renaissance in furniture and accessories. It is a beautiful and elegant natural product. The structure of marble varies from product to product, ensuring the uniqueness of every piece of furniture.

To protect the marblesurface we advise  you to always use Bolia Marble Polish. Even though the product is primed when it is at the suppliers, it should still be done before and after use to avoid causing irreparable damage to the surface.

Marble cannot withstand acid or acidic detergents, such as vinegar and lemon juice. Acidic fluids spilled on the surface must be wiped off immediately. Marble can withstand hot objects for short periods of time, but we recommend that you never place tea lights, pots or other hot objects directly on the surface.

Stainless steel is an elegant, classic and timeless material. It requires little maintenance. Cleaning with a damp cloth is typically sufficient to remove any dirt or grime.

Our product range also includes lacquered metals such as steel and aluminum. These surfaces are just as easy to maintain as stainless steel, but add a little more colour to the room. Do not use scouring powder or sponges, as these can scratch the surface.

A concrete countertop is made from nature’s own materials. It is impossible to produce two identical concrete slabs. The differences will be apparent in the colours and shades, giving the rustic surface a unique look. This helps to give concrete its distinctive, vibrant and unique appearance.

To protect the concrete surface, it must be saturated from the start. Although the product is primed when it is at the suppliers, the surface should still always be treated before and after use because otherwise this may cause irreparable damage to the surface. Bolia Marble Polish should be used for this. Remember to do it regularly according to the directions, otherwise this may cause irreparable damage. Concrete is organic and thus cannot withstand acid or other acidic cleaning products. These include vinegar and lemon juice. Acidic fluids spilled on the surface must be wiped off immediately. Take care to never place tea lights, pots or other hot objects directly on the surface, as this may leave permanent marks.

A lacquered surface makes it possible to play more with colour. The material under the surface is typically MDF, chipboard, plywood or honeycomb, all of which are suitable for lacquering.

A lacquered surface is generally strong but not scratch-resistant – avoid dragging objects across the surface. Clean with a slightly damp cloth. Never use abrasive cleaners such as scouring powder and cream, as these can scrape and scratch the surface. Take care to never place tea lights, pots or other hot objects directly on the surface, as this may leave permanent marks.

All glass used in our furniture is tempered to ensure greater durability. Glass is a useful material that can withstand virtually all of the chemicals, acids and liquids used in the household.

Glass is not scratch-resistant, so avoid dragging objects across the surface. Glass is very heat-resistant, but we recommend that you never place tea lights, pots or other hot objects directly on the surface.
