From on August 13, 2008 in Green Remodeling

kirei boardFor those of you not familiar Kirei Board, it is an engineered panel product made out of recycled agricultural waste products. It is made from the stalks of a plant called “Sorghum” that is grown in Northern China. Sorghum is mainly used for food, but the left-over stalks can also be harvested and processed to create this invaluable board. Kirei board is quite similar to bamboo products and can be used for a myriad of purposes.

  1. Wall Panels
  2. Ceiling Panels-this is a very common use for kirei board, even used in hotels, casinos, and restaurants.
  3. Cabinets-if you want a truly unique look in your kitchen, kirei board is a beautiful choice.
  4. Furniture-replace all of those imitation wood and MDF products, and bring some unusual class to your home.
  5. Retail Displays-kirei board is used for trade show arrangements, retail displays, and even as isle markers within a store.
  6. Flooring-kirei board is softer than bamboo, but can still be used for flooring in well-planned locations.
  7. Countertops-more attractive and eye-catching than butcher-block.
  8. Office Partitions-bring some contemporary and eco-friendly design to your office.
  9. Picture Frames-basically, you can use kirei board pretty much anywhere you would use regular wood.
  10. Bathroom Vanities-a trendy and modern way to dress-up a bathroom.
