Wooden Furniture: Pros & Cons

Furniture plays an important part in our lives and our households. It fills not only the place, but also our heart. We feel emotionally connected to the furniture of our home may it be a sofa or wardrobe or even dining table. Home will be just an empty space and will be incomplete without the furniture. 

Nowadays, a lot of furniture is made using compressed wood or plywood. Traditionally, carpenters would use solid wood without much processing or industrial alteration to make furniture. Despite having a variety of synthetic alternatives, Indian households still prefer solid wood furniture because of its durability and artistic value, as wood furniture supports fine carvings and reparability. 

It is also important for furniture to show off your personality and personal cherishes through your own personalized home interior design. Set the mood and atmosphere that you would like to come back home to, by choosing the right furniture and other home decor elements. 

We understand the dilemma of choosing the perfect furniture for your home and hence, we have provided you with a list of pros and cons to consider while choosing between wood, plywood, metal, plastic or any other material. It is important to consider various criteria such as where you live, the features you want, durability of the furniture in a given climate and maintenance costs before choosing the perfect material for your home furniture. 

Here are some pros and cons of wooden furniture:


1. Wooden furniture gives your home a traditional touch and can be converted into any creative design we visualize. Every piece is made to last.

2. Wooden furniture is extremely strong and requires very low maintenance. Wood is a durable natural material that can withstand spills in the kitchen or scratches in the dining room. Wooden furniture can last for generations with minimum care. 

3. Wooden furniture is easy to maintain. Wiping the surface of the wood with a wood cleaner on a regular basis. Waxing, oiling and polishing can be done less often but can make your furniture look brand new no matter how long it has been since you actually bought it.

4. Adding furniture to a room will completely change its look and feel. Wooden furniture offers elegance, charm and sophistication to any room. 

5. Wood furniture creates the sense of the natural world indoors.

6. The beauty of wood furniture is that it can be changed over time by sanding and staining, or painting. Wooden furniture can be refurbished and can be given an entirely new look. Even the colour and tones of wood gives variety of style and look.

7. The small dents on the wooden furniture will go unnoticed with the creative design and texture of the furniture.


1. The cost of wooden furniture may be a little higher as compared to lower end materials, but you will enjoy the benefits for years to come. 

2. Like most materials, wood is vulnerable to water and the natural environment. 

3. Moisture can damage the wood by deteriorating its texture and finishing, but this can be avoided by proper upkeep.
