Let’s understand the terms firstly,
MDF is a Medium Density Fiberboard manufactured using a mixture of wood solids, wax and resins. This mixture that are bonded together on high temperature and pressure to build uniform wood product. MDF is far cheaper product in wood industry. In simple terms, MDF is a sawdust bonded together with glue. The bond is not as strong as natural wood or plywood. One therefore cannot guarantee for the furniture made out of MDF wood.
Decorative Veneers are natural wood, obtained by slicing logs of wood like teak, mahogany, etc. Veneer sheets glued to wood surface, increases the beauty and charm of the furniture that no other decorative panels can. Veneer I would say is one of the 5 most important or prime feature to home interior. Infact veneer is second prime aspect when is come to interiors. Veneer sheet is a thin slice of wood generally 3mm that is glued to on plywood, particle board or MDF. Being natural wood no other manufactured wooden sheet or laminate cannot match to the beauty, richness and luster that decorative natural veneer wood can.
A furniture made out of MDF will have a life spans of say 1/4th to that of veneer wood furniture.
Well costwise too, a MDF furniture will cost around 1/4th to 1/10th as much as veneer wood furniture or veneered furniture would cost. Veneered furniture turn out to be expensive piece than MDF made furniture,But with price come quality, durability and also look and feel to your home interiors.
We therefore suggest our clients and home owners for veneer wood furniture for their beautiful homes.
