Exploring Furniture Finishes

Exploring Furniture Finishes: A Deep Dive with Facet Furniture

Furniture finishes are paramount in defining the final appearance and durability of a piece. They can magnify the inherent beauty of wood, offer protection, and dictate the style of a room. At Facet Furniture, finishes are our forte. In this blog, we’ll unearth the essence of finishes, why they’re essential, and spotlight some of the signature finishes we offer.

What is a Furniture Finish?

Furniture finishes are protective layers applied to the surface of wooden pieces, enhancing their aesthetics and durability. More than just a superficial coating, they are specially formulated to bond with the wood, ensuring longevity and resistance against external elements.

Why Opt for a Finish Over Bare Wood?

1. Enhanced Aesthetics: Finishes can elevate the visual appeal of wooden furniture, highlighting its grain and adding depth to its natural color.

2. Protection: They act as a shield against moisture, UV rays, scratches, and everyday wear and tear, ensuring your furniture stands the test of time.

3. Maintenance: Finished furniture is easier to clean and less susceptible to staining compared to untreated wood.

How to Choose the Right Finish for Your Furniture?

1. Understand the Ambiance: Think about the mood and style you want to convey. For a clean, modern feel, the Ghost White finish might be your go-to. If you’re leaning towards a traditional warm tone for your wood furniture, the Pure Living Finish might be more your style.

2. Consider Your Needs: For furniture pieces that will face daily wear and tear, opt for finishes that offer heightened protection. Some types of wood require a particular kind of finish, so research which woods can handle the finish you are considering. On every Facet Furniture piece there are a wide variety of finishes to choose from, which get filtered as you select the type of wood you’d like to use on your project.
