Whether you are thinking about redoing a room in your home, you are renovating an entire house, or you are thinking about constructing a new home, here are a few reasons that you should think about incorporating furniture grade wood veneer into your design work.
1. In woodworking, veneer refers to thin slices of wood, usually thinner than 3 mm (1/8 inch), that typically are glued onto core panels (typically, wood, particle board or medium-density fiberboard) to produce flat panels such as doors, tops and panels for cabinets, parquet floors and parts of furniture
2. Wood has the least impact on total energy use, greenhouse gasses, air and water pollution, solid waste, and ecological resource use. A fairly astounding seventy percent less energy is required in the use of wood compared with any other building materials. Also, using a furniture grade wood veneer extends the use of a piece of timber. The wood that might be used in one solid piece of furniture can cover a far greater area when used as a veneer instead. This applies to bamboo veneer sheets, cherry veneer sheets, and even mahogany veneer sheets.
3. Furniture grade wood veneer sheets are also a great way to help you to be able to redo a room in your home without spending the kind of money that you would have to if you wanted to replace an entire wall. This way, you can use real wood veneer sheets to cover up an older less attractive looking wall.
