There’s no universal approach to decorating a home or a space. Everybody needs to factor in their own aesthetic sense, budget, lifestyle, and other personal factors. However, solid wood furniture has always been widely loved, and its popularity is only rising now. 

Let’s check out a few reasons why.


Functional Beauty

Some pieces of furniture are more practical than beautiful. Solid wood furniture lets you add beauty and functionality to your home at the same time. For example, there are handmade bookcases with glass doors you can buy to display books or any decorative item without worrying about it collecting dust.

There are gorgeous entertainment units and coffee tables that combine practical storage with varied looks, from sleek contemporary minimalism to farmhouse classics. A solid wood kitchen table has a commanding sense of gravitas. 

You can find practical, beautiful, solid wood furniture for every room in your home.


What is it about wooden furniture and wooden interiors that make people feel so cozy? Cabins, boathouses, barns, and other wooden structures evoke pastoral tranquility and relaxation. 

It’s as if furniture made of wood carries with it a little piece of these larger structures, making people feel at ease and relaxed in their presence. The sight of the grains, blonde-yellow pine, or even a rich, swirly mahogany all promotes calmness and comfort. 

Japanese wooden construction techniques are a world apart from those of the humble remote log cabin, just like a farmhouse is nothing like the sleek, urban homes with minimalist wooden furniture. However, anybody inside these buildings can’t help but feel comfort amid all the wood. 


There’s no shortage of cheap, inexpensive furniture built today to last a year or two instead of decades. It looks great in the ad, and it’s designed to be compact during shipping. The problems begin when you take it out of the box and weeks or months later it starts falling apart!

Wood made of solid wood is much more durable. It’ll last you longer, and it’ll look better years down the road when cheaper pieces would have worn out far earlier. 

Restoring is Possible

One of the best things about solid wood furniture is that even decades later when it is scratched and beaten up, with a little know-how and elbow grease you can restore it to look quite new. That’s because solid wood can be stripped or sanded down, so the surface with scratch marks or even gouges fade away gradually until a new, fresher surface is revealed underneath.

This is impossible to do with plywood or furniture built from cheaper materials. Fast furniture is mostly designed to be disposable, and people today are tired of short-lived pieces that don’t last. It makes more sense to spend more upfront for a piece you’ll enjoy for many years to come rather than keep rebuying furniture because once it’s worn out, that’s it.

Wood comes in countless styles and functions. Consider your needs and tastes, and hopefully, you’ll find a piece of solid wood furniture you enjoy for years.
