Solid wood is exactly what you think it is...solid wood. Furniture pieces made of solid wood can be sanded, stained, varnished, or treated with a long-lasting lifespan if cared for properly.

Veneer is constructed of a thin layer of real hardwood which is a softer material compared to laminate. This type of material requires more care since it is more prone to scratches and dents.

Laminate is mostly made out of plastic with a composite base for durability purposes. The printed surfaces of the laminate give a look-a-like feel of solid wood.
