4 reasons to use wood veneer in your next residential project

Home design trends come and go, but wood is a constant. Humans have been using wood in architecture and furnishings for more than 10,000 years. Wood adds light and life in spaces both humble and elaborate. It can create moods both simple and luxurious. At Jacaranda, we use wood to create lush wood veneers for walls, ceilings, and other features. This offers you endless customization options in your residential projects. While we can give you nearly endless reasons to use our veneers, we’ll narrow that list down to the top four. Read below to learn reasons our veneer wallcovering can transform your next residential project.

1. It’s flexible.

A veneer is a thin sheet of wood bonded to a substrate. It can be adhered to a wall, cabinet, or another surface. Because veneer is made using real wood, each sheet encapsulates the singular beauty of the tree from which it is made. This cannot be duplicated through any other means. The natural wood has a warm, rich feel that can bring your residential project to life.

While the veneered surface remains constant, the backing allows for incredible flexibility. Solid wood is sturdy and inflexible. However, with the right backing, our wood veneer wallcoverings can be applied to curved or contoured surfaces. You can even apply it to corners to maintain continuity and preserve the integrity of your wallcovering.

2. It’s versatile.

Every sheet of architectural grade wood veneer wallcovering is as unique as the tree from which it comes, providing you with virtually endless design possibilities. You can mix, match, and create your own designs with a vast array of textures, grains, patterns, and colors to create a space that matches your personality, highlights your preferences, and serves as a backdrop to your collections.

SanFoot can be used not only on your walls but also on ceilings, mouldings, cabinetry, and more. We can dye it, stain it, print it, and otherwise alter it to create exactly the look you want. We can even bond our wood veneer wallcovering to translucent backings to create stunning statement walls and ethereal light fixtures.

3. It’s durable.

One of wood’s biggest benefits is its natural durability. Wood can be used and reused for decades without losing any of its appeal or strength. Solid wood may be prone to certain types of environmental damage, however, such as warping and splitting. The process of veneering eliminates these risks. The strong bond between our architectural grade wood veneer wallcovering and the substrate creates a stronger, more durable material that resists warping and other damage and allows for more versatility and durability in virtually any environment and under any conditions.

4. It’s eco-friendly.

Wood is the original green building material. It is easily recyclable, and at the end of its life cycle, wood veneer can be broken down into wood waste that can be easily remade into other materials. The veneer itself requires less wood than solid wood products and Jacaranda’s unique processes can make 300 percent more veneer from each log compared to conventional methods. We use sustainable methods to ensure the highest possible yields, minimize waste, and protect the environment. We support and practice responsible forest management and use plantation-grown in some cases. Jacaranda is a proud member of the Forest Stewardship Council and the U.S. Green Building Council.
