Cheap MDF boards

Of course, with the thickness of the panels, the approximate price per square meter increases. While a thin eight millimeter thick plate costs about 20 euros in the format 280 by 207 centimeters, you have to pay for the same plate size with a thickness of twelve millimeters already half more, so slightly over 30 euros.

This equates to a price of about four euros per square meter for the eight millimeter MDF board and six euros for the twelve millimeter board. The 22 millimeter thick MDF board then costs about 11 euros per square meter.
