Exotic wood veneers are an ever-popular choice among interior designers who value the individuality of a home they design. The specific characteristics of natural wood veneers can never be duplicated in another home since every piece of wood has a set pattern unique to them, which makes them a professional’s ideal tool in creating beautiful and functional interior elements. 

Decorative veneers have the power to liven up your home with their natural beauty and charm. The finishes may act as an ornamental overlay over surfaces like furniture tops, doors and more! Let’s explore easy ways to employ natural wood veneers as an attractive option in home décor.

Any space can be made even more aesthetically pleasant with wood veneer accents. By using a dark veneer sheet against a white table or a beige toned sheet right across from the brown door will add dimension to any space. After all, nothing gives the feel of elegance and luxury quite like wood veneer. Using veneers in conjunction with other material such as glass and steel, marble and cement accents make for a modern twist of contrast. A more personalised approach is to use veneers for custom light fixtures, for an art installation in your house, custom-made staircase or even modern-chic wooden rugs that can take your interiors to a whole new level.

If you are confused about how to enhance a small space and make it appear bigger than it is, shadows can be your best friend. When you use dark coloured veneers for the room, they camouflage the fact that the room is small. They also help highlight the brighter objects placed in the room, making them stand out to create a lasting impact.

 

5. Veneered doors
