Wanna buy Furniture for your Home? Check out the Guidebook!

We all have our own tastes...some people like long lasting, hard wood furniture while some prefer style and casual pieces which can be replaced in a couple of years. Whatever your style, make sure you know what you want to bring home. Here are some guidelines to help you make the best choice.

Hard & Soft Wood


Hard Wood Rocking Chair

Make sure you know the difference between hardwoods and softwoods. Hardwood comes Sagwan, Sesame or Salwood while soft wood comes from Pine or Deodhar trees. The hard wood has strength and stability in case of chairs, beds, tables etc; but those qualities can make hardwoods difficult to work with for intricate carving and detail work. Soft wood is easily carved or worked. Since their surfaces are often soft, they are more susceptible to marks and dings, which may result in a weathered or worn quality.

Is Plywood better?



A lot of times, using plywood is the best option. Solid wood has a tendency to expand and contract as the humidity changes leading to instability.Plywood or particle board (MDF)is more stable and less apt to warp or split. Plywood then can be covered with veneers or laminates to recreate the desired look.

What is "Veneering"?



Make sure you know what "veneering" is. Veneer is the use of thin layers of highly decorative woods on top of plywood. Veneering makes it possible to match grain patterns or create designs. The only factor that adds to veneering is that it cannot be left unfinished, it has to be touched up with a protective coat of varnish, polish etc.

A lot of wear & tear.....use Laminates



If you know that your funiture will be unmaintained and needs sustainability the best option is to use laminates. Laminates are sheets of processed woods in different colours, textures, designs which help in maintaining the plywood against moisture, termites, humidity, etc. One can find a huge variety in them.

  10. Assemble furniture would be a sign of inferior quality. It is no longer the case. The furniture is often shipped partially assembled, simply reduce shipping costs. In fact, most of the pieces you see in a traditional furniture store - chairs and tables, for example - may have been transported from point of manufacture and assemble in the shop. You never saw being created in the store.

  14. Hi there....plywood also has the same tendency but since it is fitted perfectly with corners and hinges, scope for expansion reduces.
