From project planning to installation tips, we’ll provide the knowledge and guidance you need to bring your design dreams to life.

Wood veneer is a perennially popular design choice. Thin layers of wood are bonded to the substrate to create a veneer, which can then be installed on your walls, ceilings, furnishings, and more. The vast array of colors, grain patterns, and stains available in our selection of wood veneer wallcoverings provide you with endless design and style options. Whether you’re still planning your project or preparing to install your new veneer, a little knowledge and guidance from Jacaranda can make the process simpler.

Planning Your Project, Picking Your Wood

As more designers turn to natural materials to highlight the beauty of spaces and bring the comfort of the outdoors to our living and work spaces, wood veneer is enjoying its time in the sun. Wood has been a building material since humans first began constructing structures, and veneer has been used since the time of ancient humans to decorate and beautify furniture and spaces. Together, they can help us transform our spaces.

A versatile veneer can work in just about any environment and any design scheme: You’ve just got to pick the right species. Warm mahogany, for example, can make for a welcoming reception area. Oak and maple are neutral, all-purpose species that fit into most design schemes. Ash has a crisp, cool tone that serves as a functional backdrop in professional environments. For more personalized looks, add a custom stain or finish to your veneer.

At Jacaranda, we are always happy to help you plan your project whether you’re still in the “picking and choosing” stage or about to embark on your design adventure!

Installing Your New Veneer

At Jacaranda, we’re committing to simplifying the installation process. Our veneer applies much like vinyl coverings, and it even requires the same tools. For the best results, you do need to check conditions before installation. If the temperature or humidity levels aren’t right, it’s best to wait to install until they are.

You’ll also want to prepare the workspace. Begin by priming all application surfaces with our recommended primers. This keeps the underlying wall from absorbing an excessive amount of adhesive and ensures a strong, secure bond. Before or during priming, you should also unpack the veneers and allow them to rest and acclimate. This should be between 24 and 48 hours before you’re ready to install them. Jacaranda provides in-depth instructions to help you protect your new veneer and get the most out of your wallcoverings. Be sure to apply a test strip before proceeding with the project, and use only those adhesives we recommend.

Our wood veneers are numbered with a sequence, a flitch number, and bottom indicators to make the installation process even easier. To get the pattern you want on your walls, simply match the numbers and designations as desired.

Once your SanFoot has been installed, it’s ready to use. Each sheet of SanFoot comes pre-finished with a sealant and finish, so there’s no need for you to apply additional products once it’s on the wall. Simply shine and go.
