But how do you select between laminate and wood veneer office furniture? Which one is more cost effective, lasts longer, represents more style flexibility and requires less maintenance and repair in the long run? Here is a brief comparison that will help you make the right decision. Take a look:

Wood Veneer Office Furniture

Wood veneer office furniture is manufactured using thin slices of wood that have been affixed over a hard substrate material. More resilient to moisture and chipping than solid wood office furniture, wood veneer is an ideal choice for those who are looking for modern office furniture that looks elegant, classy and highly professional. Usually available in warm teak and rich hues, wood veneer furniture is not only used widely in high profile corporate offices but also in executive firms working in finance, insurance, legal and healthcare sectors.

Pros

For those who are after more cost effective and affordable office furniture for office desks and high traffic areas, laminate furniture offers a great deal of variety and versatility in design. The high price to value ratio of laminate furniture is unmatched in the market and it is also known for its durability and long term reliability. Laminate furniture is usually made of printed laminated sheets and the sturdy look is great for small to medium sized office.
