Why Solid Wood?

Firstly, let’s start with a brief disclaimer about wood veneer. There is absolutely nothing wrong with furniture made with laminate or veneer. Veneer does have its own set of benefits. For instance, it is both cheaper for shoppers on a budget and lighter to carry on moving day. We carry many high quality pieces of furniture made with wood veneer. If veneer products were junk, we wouldn’t carry them here at Woodstock Furniture & Mattress Outlet. But…

In every way, solid wood furniture is simply better quality. If asked to describe solid wood construction with only one word, that word would be durable. A solidly-built piece of hardwood furniture can weather decades or even centuries of use. So while it’s true that a solid wood piece will be more expensive, someday it could become a cherished family heirloom.

It is true that the initial cost of solid wood is higher, but we should think of solid wood furniture as an investment. What is more affordable in the long run? A handcrafted solid wood dining table that will last a lifetime? Or four or five lower quality tables over the years that will eventually wear out? Over the years, a quality solid wood piece will pay for itself.

On a related note, solid wood furniture is extremely low maintenance and resistant to damage. Unlike veneer products, solid wood can be refinished or retreated to look brand new. Whether it’s an unsightly scratch, a water ring, or some other issue, it is always possible to sand, paint, stain, or treat the wood.
