A solid wood board is a board made of wood through-and-through. A veneered board is a board material finished on the top (and bottom) side with a wooden veneer layer. A veneer top layer is a thin cut wood top layer glued or glued to a strong backing. Both panels have a beautiful look and bring warmth into your home! One of the best-known wood panels is oak; in addition, spruce is also a popular wood species.

If you are talking about veneered board material, then surely veneered MDF is one of the best-known types. Yet there are also other carriers available such as solid wood or plywood. In our range, you will find a wide selection of veneered board material.

Our veneer decors feature an elegant veneer layer (from real wood). This gives the wood boards an attractive appearance and gives them a natural look. Veneered boards are structural boards, often MDF, finished with a thin, wooden top layer. This gives it the look of a solid wood panel, but the advantages of MDF. This makes the panels more practical as well as more durable than solid timber panels. This is because fibreboards consist of compressed wood chips, which is a waste product.

What is veneered board material?

Veneered boards are boards finished with a thin wooden veneer on the top (and bottom) side. This wooden veneer is a thinly cut slice of wood that is glued or glued to a support, giving the board as a whole a solid appearance. Veneers are cut and constructed in different ways. The best-known variants are bilge, quarter-timber and coil. Depending on the wood species and cutting method, a certain look is created. You can read more about the different types of veneer below.

Veneers are ideally suited for decorative purposes due to their natural appearance: they combine the strong properties of the support with a top layer of your choice. Because the material only has a thin top layer, it is also a lot more affordable than solid board material and you still retain the real natural look and feel. However, it is important to realise that a veneer top layer, just like solid board, is real wood and therefore sensitive to UV. It is therefore important to finish veneered board materials with a lacquer or stain.

    When looking for finished board material, you generally end up in two categories: melaminated board material and veneered board material. As a carrier, or base, MDF, chipboard or another strong board is often chosen. The difference between these carriers is generally minimal. Are you looking for a specific texture, or colour? Then go for your favourite top layer and don't let the material's carrier influence you.

    Veneered panels

    Because veneered material is glued to a support, it inherits its strong basic properties, so veneered board material does not warp compared to solid board material and the board material is easy to assemble and process. However, it is still real wood, which is why the material remains sensitive to UV radiation, which can cause discolouration. It is therefore important to protect veneered board material with, for example, lacquer, oil, stain or wax. 

    When you cut veneered board material to size, you will see that only the top and bottom layers of veneer have been applied. On the sides, you will see the backing material (usually MDF). To finish these sides nicely, there is veneer tape. This is available in the same type of wood as the top layer, to create a nice whole after finishing the edges. 

    Veneered board material is easier to process yourself than melaminated board material, because the veneer layer splinters less easily. Want to be sure that the cut edges look neat? Then have the material professionally cut to size by us!

    The advantages of veneered material are:

    • Natural product, each panel is unique
    • Durable compared to solid board material
    • Indistinguishable from solid wood
    • Beautiful, warm and natural look

    Veneered MDF or solid furniture panels?

    Veneered MDF

    We are all familiar with the properties of MDF: a compressed fibreboard. As with chipboard, the quality of the MDF depends on the pressing pressure and pressing time. We only cut high-quality MDF. Whereas chipboard used to be the standard backing for melaminated furniture panels, MDF is gaining ground due to its strong, stable and high-quality properties. Due to its homogeneous structure, it is less likely to blunt your sawing and drilling equipment and is easy to assemble. Are you looking for veneered material? Then the standard carrier is MDF or, traditionally, solid panels. Because veneers are more fragile than melaminated material, MDF is always chosen as the carrier for these top layers.

    Solid panels

    Are you looking for furniture panels with a wooden look? Then you may also end up with solid panels. Or solid panels with a veneer top layer. In the wood industry, solid is often used as a catch-all term. A truly solid panel, consisting of a single piece, is very expensive. In addition, there is scarcity in the industry, so new wooden panels are assembled in a creative way. This keeps the material affordable, accessible and creates the same look and feel as a solid panel. Wood panels with a solid core are one of the oldest types of veneer panels. Wooden slats are used for the core and the top layer is then finished with a veneer. The quality and price strongly depend on the visual quality of the veneer, the thickness of the top layer and, whether it is one- or two-sided finished.

    Decorative chipboard

    Finally, we would like to briefly mention furniture boards.This is not a veneer panel, but a chipboard with a melamine (plastic) top layer. This panel material is completely finished and does not need to be treated like solid wood panels and veneers do. Melaminated panels are produced in many colours and versions and are nowadays almost indistinguishable from an extra natural look-and-feel. Melamine-faced panels have a number of important properties:

    1. It is ecologically a sustainable choice
    2. It is relatively cheap
    3. It is a light a versatile material
    4. It is easy to saw and screw.
    5. It does not require finishing

    Want to make it easy on yourself? Then choose melaminated board material instead of veneer.

    The properties of decorative furniture panels

    Above, you have read about the difference between solid and veneer. The different types of supports have also been covered. But besides these properties, there are also some practical properties that can apply to your DIY projects.

    Furniture panels

    The most common variant of available furniture panels is with a chipboard or MDF backing. Are you curious about the properties of that panel material? Our tip: Then read more about the properties of the carrier. That way, you can quickly find out whether the board material is suitable for your next DIY project.

    Veneer panels with water-resistant properties

    If you see the type V313 or the term water-resistant passing by the product, then the core of the carrier is water-resistant. The gluing, pressing pressure and pressing time of the composition of fibreboards add extra water-resistant properties to the board material. However, always bear in mind that the top layer is not necessarily water-resistant. Curious about the properties? Check out the properties of Damp-proof MDF or Moisture Proof chipboard.

    Veneering and marking

    Veneer panels can be ordered in several varieties and thicknesses and with a wide variety of textures. Don't be put off by the many brand names such as Nørdus, Infinite Wood, Querkus or other major brands. The decors are similar in colour, texture and quality. We have several brands and only supply high-quality veneer panels with a unique look.
