Decorative wood veneers bring truly sensational appeal to a living room. If this is something you would like to explore, expert veneer specialists will work alongside you or your interior designers to advise on the right timber selection, cut and matching techniques so they can achieve the desired effects, whether you are looking to achieve something striking, or more of a subtle impression. Inlay lines and the traditional craft of marquetry can also be undertaken to add a real touch of uniqueness and visual appeal.

Versatile Veneers

Real wood veneers tend to be more versatile than solid wood. The way they are cut allows beautiful patterns and effects to be achieved that simply won’t happen with solid wood.

In a living room, decorative wood veneers can be used for:

  • Freestanding and fitted furniture
  • Dining room suites
  • Display cabinets
  • Home cinema surrounds
  • Games table covers
  • Doors and door frames
  • Skirting boards

Wood Veneered Home Cinema Systems

One particularly popular use of veneered panels in living rooms is to conceal integrated audio visual, communications and intelligent lighting cabling.

Integrating a home cinema system and audio visual set-up is a popular exercise. One method of concealing all the associated cabling is to use eye catching veneered surrounds and panels. The benefit of this is that the home cinema system becomes an appealing focal point.

A veneered home cinema consists of an integrated screen and speakers, set into a bespoke veneered surround with the panelling continuing into cabinetry and shelving for media storage.

From subtle and elegant staples like beech and maple to stunningly striking exotic species like fascinating pepperwood with its decorative veining and the reptile skin-like Brazilian silky oak, there is a wide choice of timber species available to create home cinema surrounds, and indeed any type of wood veneered panels or furniture, to complement any property style, period and décor.
