The Classic Choice - Cherry Wood Furnishings

The real estate market is changing, and in response, furniture development is changing as well. There are now many types and collections of furniture to fit the many tastes and needs of homeowners and renters today. Despite the wide range of choices on the market, wood remains a natural choice because of its elegance and longevity. Of all the choices of woods, cherry has remained a particular favorite throughout the years.

If you decide on cherry as the kind of wood for your furniture, there are some important things to keep in mind. First, make sure you purchase solid cherry and not cherry veneer or cherry particle board. Trickier to spot are pieces that use both cherry and a cheaper wood, such as pine.

Check the wood for variations in grain and blemishes that might reveal it to be a cheaper alternative. Furniture that is not genuine cherry may not stand up to the test of time. Cherry can range in color from light cream to a darker reddish brown, the grain is fine and the texture should be slightly smooth. Examine the furniture for all these qualities to make sure it is solid cherry.

Be aware that solid cherry furniture may be on the expensive side of your budget, but rest assured that if it’s true solid cherry furniture, it's an investment that can last for years to come.
