The use of such a good finishing material, like veneer, is again in trend. Forty years ago, most of the wooden doors, ceilings, walls, were aimed to sew with plastic, nowadays plastic is mainly found in public places, in offices, and not the most prestigious ones. The use of wood and its imitation is again becoming popular in the manufacture of floors and doors, and other interior items.

What is veneer?
Some believe that such a coating only looks like wood and is not natural, while others confuse veneered doors with doors made of laminated chipboard, stating that there is not much difference between them.

Today you can buy not only veneered oak doors, bleached, but also veneer doors in wenge color or maple veneered doors, white veneered doors, but veneers can also be made from trees of more exotic and expensive species.
