Comparing Wood Furniture When Moving into your Alachua Apartment

 
 

If you’re in the process of buying furniture for your move to One 51 Place, chances are some of the furniture you’ll encounter will be made of wood. However, there are many different types of wood furniture on the market today, and it can sometimes be confusing to know which type to choose and what the differences between them are.

Regardless of whether you’re looking for a bed frame, a dresser, a dining table, or any other piece of furniture for your Alachua apartment, you will likely be presented with options for solid hardwood, all wood, and laminate wood. While these may sound similar, the construction of each board or plank is different. Below is some information to help you make an informed decision when purchasing furniture:

  • Solid wood – A piece of solid wood furniture is made of hardwood and nothing else. There should not be any veneer or particleboard components in solid wood. Solid wood can be bonded together with a variety of joining techniques, like screws, glue, or dowels.
  • All wood – “All wood” refers to furniture that is made of plywood (thin layers of wood pressed together) or composite boards (also called engineered wood, made of wood strands and fibers) with a veneer of hardwood bonded to its exterior. All wood products are usually less prone to warping, shrinking, or splitting than solid wood.
  • Laminate wood – Laminate wood is composite wood or plywood that is covered with a printed reproduction of a wood grain surface. The wood grain may be printed on paper or plastic, and it is often described in terms of the tree species that it is meant to imitate, like “oak finish” or “spruce finish.”

No matter what material your furniture is made of, it’s sure to be complemented by all the features of our One 51 Place apartments, like color-coordinated blinds and ceramic tile in the foyer, kitchen, and bathroom(s). If you would like more information about apartment features and community amenities, please contact our leasing office today.
