Why Real Wood Furniture Is Worth the Investment

Real wood furniture is a classic choice for any home. It adds warmth and character to any room, and with proper care, it can last for generations. While it may be tempting to opt for cheaper, mass-produced furniture made from veneers or other synthetic materials, there are several reasons why investing in real wood is worth it in the long run

  • Durability

At Grain Designs our solid wood furniture is much more durable than its synthetic counterparts. It is able to withstand daily wear and tear and can last for decades with proper care. This is primarily because we use solid hardwoods instead of wood veneers or plywood cores. Mass-produced furniture, on the other hand, is often made with cheaper materials that are lighter and easier to ship, making them more prone to damage with daily use. Investing in real wood furniture may cost more upfront, but it will save you money in the long run as you won’t have to replace it as often.


  • Customization

Real wood furniture can be customized to fit your specific style and needs. Whether you want a custom wood dining table to fit your unique space, a wall to wall office desk, or a one-of-a-kind shelving unit, there are endless possibilities when it comes to real wood. Mass-produced furniture, on the other hand, often comes in limited finishes and sizes, making it difficult to find something that truly fits your style and space.

  • Environmental Impact

Real wood furniture is also a more sustainable option. While it is true that cutting down trees has an environmental impact, our local wood sources use responsible forestry practices ensuring that new trees are planted to replace those that are harvested. Synthetic materials, on the other hand, are made from non-renewable resources and often release harmful chemicals during the manufacturing process. By investing in real solid wood furniture, you can feel good about your purchase and its impact on the environment.

While real wood furniture may come with a higher price tag upfront, it is worth the investment for its durability, customization options, and sustainability. Consider investing in a custom wood dining table or other real wood pieces for your home, and you’ll be able to enjoy them for years to come.
