A unique solution for bathroom wood furniture manufacturers

Bathroom provides a seamless transition to the outside world that offers a sense of relaxation, privacy, and serenity to start and end our day. Adding wooden furniture in the bathroom is an environmentally friendly option, along with an earthiness feel that bring us closer to nature. Regardless of vanity shelf above the countertop sink, a toiletry cabinet at the bottom, a bench or a stool, the wooden furniture with warm texture is able to create an amazing centerpiece to any bathroom, provide functional space and style from minimalist to traditional.

Wooden furniture for bathroom is primarily made from solid wood, plywood, MDF (medium density fibreboard) and/or melamine panel. However, untreated wood substrates are susceptible to damage caused by water splashes, warm bath vapour and moisture absorption from high humidity. Therefore, a safely treated, waterproofed wood substrate and well-finished surface by the furniture manufacturer is essential to ensure a long-lasting performance of wooden bathroom furniture. Plus, a well-ventilated bathroom keeps the humidity levels under control, while routine housekeeping, for instance removing soapy residue, will certainly make the wooden furniture last longer.

Common problems of wooden bathroom furniture:

Water and moisture affect all wood properties. The penetration of water or moisture over time can cause the wood substrate to swell, weaken, rot, fall apart and allow the formation of mould to grow. Thus, apart from using high moisture resistant wood substrates, manufacturers must ensure the coated finishes create an effective barrier to prevent moisture or water from seeping into the wooden furniture and causing irreversible damage. The right coating materials and finishes not only make wooden furniture easier to maintain but provides additional protection, such as against stains, discolouration or scratches.
