Veneers, laminate and painting are options to finish a furniture piece. Veneer & Laminate are considered as indoor finish & basic paints are used when furniture is exposed to climatic conditions; where polish surfaces and laminates fade.
Duco Paint: - This is a good finish for furniture pieces where you want bright, plain colours with smooth edges. However, it has a tendency to catch dirt stains easily and is not scratch resistant. It is advisable to coat it with polish for giving it an additional protective layering.
Veneer: - These are thin sheets of natural wood surfaces pasted on the plywood surface. Various varieties of exotic woods are available in veneer form. They are finished with coat of polish and are amongst the most elegant and pleasant finishes to be used in any space.
Laminates: - As the name suggest, these are printed, paper surfaces laminated on thin sheets of hard wood. Laminates are artificial & cheaper imitations of actual veneers and therefore they don't look as elegant. Since they are manufactured, they are the most stain and scratch resistant, but also tend to give furniture pieces sharper edges due to their base material. It is always a combination of these materials that complete the room, the way DESSIGN7 INTERIORS PVT. LTD has visualised it for you.
