When it comes to buying decorative veneer sheets, people often get confused between the myriad of available options. The whole experience can be a breeze if you consider the basics such as the application of the veneer sheets and design consistency. Keeping that in mind, in this post, we list five key tips that one must follow when buying decorative veneers.
1. Choose a veneer type based on the application.
There are different veneers available for different applications. You should choose a veneer depending on its application. For instance, if you are looking for a veneer for surfaces such as front doors, reception counters, and living room furniture, that are a part of any high visibility area, you should go with premium veneers. On the other hand, if you need wood veneers for surfaces such as the underside of shelves and cabinets, you can opt for ordinary veneer that’s far less expensive as compared to premium veneers.
2. Use a backing material for proper installation.
The use of a backing material along with the raw veneer adds to the stability and durability. However, it’s important to choose the right backing material for best results. You can choose between paper and phenolic backings that are among the most popular backing options used by artisans and interior designers.
3. Avoid placing multiple orders to ensure consistency.
No two tree logs (even within the same species) have the exact same grain, texture, and color tone. As a result, veneer sheets that are derived from different tree logs also differ in terms of design and style. If you want to ensure design consistency across a project, order veneer sheets from the same tree log. We, therefore, recommend that you place a single order. Alternatively, you can go for engineered wood veneers if the design consistency is required across a large surface area.
4. Share samples with the supplier to order a matching veneer.
In some scenarios, you may have no other option but to order a matching veneer. For instance, if you want to replace a veneer sheet that suffered damage, you will have to go for a matching design. Make sure you share a sample of the existing veneer sheet with the manufacturer to get the best possible match. Tip – Always keep a sample of the veneer sheets installed in your spaces handy so that you don’t have to extract one from your decor.
5. Share all the necessary details when placing the order.
When ordering veneers, share all the required details with the manufacturer. The more details you share, the more the clarity about the required veneer. Some important information that you must share with the manufacturer includes – thickness, cut, quality, color, and exact measurement. Also, order more veneer than you require so that there’s room for wastage due to installation mistakes.
