THE ADVANTAGES OF VENEERED FURNITURE
Don’t make the mistake to think veneered furniture is inferior to solid wood furniture.
The most popular perception is that furniture that incorporates veneers is lower quality than solid wood pieces. In reality, most fine furniture is made of a combination of veneers and other wood types. If you study the elegant antique furniture showcased in museums, you will see expertly crafted veneered furniture that has withstood the test of time.
Solid woods and veneers are both excellent materials when used in the proper place and well-constructed. The following points will help you discern the difference between the two materials, understand their proper usage, and recognize quality craftsmanship.
Veneer wood pieces begin with thin layers of wood glued together with the grain at the right angles over a thick core. This crisscross design reduces the chance of cracks and splits appearing. Many people mistakenly assume that veneered is inferior or cheap compared to solid wood, but in actual truth, veneers are very often used in high end pieces.
Veneers offer the following design advantages:
If conserving natural resources is a priority, then furniture made of wood veneers is a great choice. The veneering technology makes it possible to get 15 to 20 tables out of the same lumber used to create just one solid wood table. The substrate used as the base for the veneer is an eco-friendly way to use lower grade lumber or particle board made up of recycled sawdust.
MORE ADVANTAGES OF VENEERED FURNITURE…
In the end it comes down to the suitability of each of the pieces of furniture in question as well as the quality of the design and workmanship. Often the two will be mixed so that for example a table may have solid legs with a veneered top.
Perhaps the most important question to ask is: “Do I love this piece of furniture and is it in my price range…?”
