When most people are shopping for custom shelving, they look for their purchase to be durable, stylish and easy to install and maintain. Shelfdirect caters to all of these needs, thanks in large part to the material that we use to make the vast majority of our products – wood veneer.
As a leading manufacturer of bespoke shelving units, we possess a high level of expertise in what works and what doesn’t when it comes to shelving. Wood veneer has long been an especially popular material for use in shelving, and for more than a few reasons.
Wood veneer offers a vast range of benefits
Wood veneer provides a more stable shelf than solid wood would. Solid wood can be prone to warping and splitting, whereas the thin layers of wood of which veneer consists greatly reduce the chances of splitting and cracking. The layers of glue that hold the material together further enhance its hardiness.
Environmental sustainability has never been more important than it is today, and opting for furniture made from wood veneer is one small way in which you can do your bit to protect our precious Earth, as it requires less wood than is needed by the equivalent amount of solid wood.
Furthermore, wood veneer is more readily available than hardwood lumber, which can be very expensive and scarce. Small pieces of wood veneer can also be easily joined together, meaning that very little of it goes to waste.
