Wood Veneer, Pros and Cons

Wood Veneer, Pros and Cons


When selecting a desk, you often face the dilemma of choosing between wood veneer and laminate desks. While both of these materials can offer unique characteristics and benefits. They each have their own advantages and disadvantages to consider before making your final purchase. The main difference between wood veneer desks and laminate desks is in their construction.

What is it?

Wood veneers are constructed from thin layers of real hardwood bonded onto particleboard or plywood surfaces with a gluelike substance to increase strength and durability. The core material gives the furniture its support. While veneer layer provides an attractive visual appeal designed to mimic solid hardwood. On the other hand, laminate desks are composed primarily of high density fiberboard.  (HDF) is particleboard covered in a plasticized film. This fi made to mimic natural or synthetic finishes such as wood, stone, or metal.

Pros of wood veneer

One advantage of using a wood veneer desk is that they generally look more attractive than laminate since they use real hardwood taken from trees grown in managed forests which makes them more natural looking than laminates that may contain impostor materials instead.

Cons of wood veneer

It tends to be more expensive on the front end when initially purchased but will last longer depending on how well one takes care/maintains them. This mean those who invest upfront will eventually reap greater returns overtime, provided if proper maintenance practices remain adhered too throughout years leading up until eventual disposal. Wood veneer is not water and scratch resistant the same way that laminate desks are. This can cause problems in a more industrial environment.
