Wood Veneer Flooring:


<--Back to Wood Veneer Articles

Wood veneer is wood which has been cut into very thin sheets. Veneer is used to cover a surface to appear as if it is solid wood. Wood veneer flooring, also called laminate flooring, is a great alternatrive to hard wood flooring, because it is more cost effective, better for the environment as it uses less wood, and still looks fantastic.

Wood veneer flooring was invented in 1977 by a company in Sweeden. Since then, it has changed the way many people do the floors in their homes or businesses. Using wood veneer for your flooring allows for a wide variety of wood styles without incurring the expense that would come with solid real wood flooring.

Our Real Wood veneer which can be used for flooring includes premium quality oak, ash, walnut, and bamboo. Other popular types of wood veneer include cherry, maple and birch. For a more high-end look, consider using rare woods such as ebony, mahogany, and teak. Oakwood Veneer Company has great deals on genuine wooden veneer that can be used for residential or commercial applications including creating laminate flooring.

Caring for flooring made of wood veneer is important, as the veneer surface is thin as opposed to a solid wood flooring. It is important that you keep your wood veneered floor clean, especially in high-traffic areas, because dust, dirt and sand can scratch the surface over time.

You'll also want to make sure you keep laminate dry, since sitting water or other moisture can cause the planks to swell or warp unless you apply a water-resistant coating. Water spills aren't much of a problem though if you dry them up quickly, and don't allow them to sit for extended periods of time.

Guests in your home will be dazzled by the warm inviting look of real wood when you customize your home to include wood veneer flooring. It's an excellent accent for any room and makes it look just fabulous and fantastic.

The possibilities are endless when working with wood veneer, and you'll find over 200 varieties of wood to work with on Oakwood Veneer Company's website. Order online or call us at 0-800-012-4201 to place your order with us.
