Wood veneers are one of the most versatile interior design materials. Wood veneer is versatile enough to use in just about any aesthetic and space due to its natural beauty, the distinctive characteristics of the wood’s grain, and the virtually endless customization options. With wood veneer, you can amp up the drama and add a unique decorative element to your space.
What Is Wood Veneer?
Wood veneer is a thinly shaved sheet of wood bonded to a core material. Jacaranda uses a proprietary process to slice the wood incredibly thin, and we stain or dye it before protecting it with a special urethane finish. The finished product can be applied directly to walls, ceilings, or other surfaces. It can even be applied to columns and corners and is durable enough to withstand the test of time without weathering, cracking, or warping.
Wood is a naturally renewable resource, which means that with proper harvesting techniques and use, it is a sustainable material. At Jacaranda, we actively work to ensure we use environmentally friendly techniques as we harvest wood from responsibly managed forests or plantations and use plentiful species to craft fine recon wood veneer.
That same sustainability makes wood a popular choice in biophilic design schemes. Natural materials like wood can enhance not just our mental well-being but our physical health, too. You can create a more appealing space by bringing the freeing feeling of nature inside: Incorporate a wood veneer wall and add other natural materials to create a space that is both beautiful and relaxing. Similarly, you can kick your style up a notch with luxuriously sophisticated Neoclassic pieces mixed with formal pieces, rich brocades, and simple elegance.
Bold and Beautiful
The right tone and species of wood can set the stage for your decorating style. Light, airy woods, such as alder, aspen, poplar, and redwood, are great choices for bright, airy spaces. They don’t add much visual weight, and their subtle tones make them the perfect backdrop for many different color schemes.
Darker, richer wood tones can have a heavier feeling, but they still work well in just about any decor scheme. They’re also completely on-trend right now with a visually weightier appearance and bold coloring. Use a single mahogany table for a statement piece, and mix in other wood pieces in different shades but similar tones to keep the look balanced. Earthy, natural colors work well with dark, rich woods as do jewel tones.
When a statement piece isn’t enough, consider an accent wall. Adding wood veneer to a single wall can create a simple yet stunning style statement with a warm, organic look and feel. You don’t need to stop with a single accent wall, either: SanFoot is easy to apply to almost any surface, including ceilings and columns, which means you can make your statement as subtle or bold as you want.
Wood can serve as a beautiful backdrop for your favorite interior looks, or you can use it to accessorize using cabinetry, molding, and more.
