Millwork Panels


Description

Millwork wall panels are made of composite wood (particleboard, MDF, plywood, etc). They add texture to a space and come in a variety of styles such as raised, flat, beaded-board, and custom panels. Millwork panels should have no-added urea-formaldehyde, contain recycled material as much as possible, and be sourced locally.
