Buying new furniture can be exciting but confusing – especially when you come across all the terminology used to describe different finishes and materials. If you’re looking at buying timber furniture, one of the main points of difference you’ll come across is solid timber versus wood veneer. We’re here to help with this brief guide to solid timber and wood veneer.
Whether your furniture is solid or veneered, it needs some TLC. Don’t soak the wood or leave wet spills on the surface. If it is badly damaged, it will need to be repaired by a professional. If the furniture has had an oil or wax finish, this can be maintained using a similar product, and will require regular maintenance.
