If you are looking to update your home or do some redecorating, you might want to consider using sheet veneer. Sheet veneer can be applied to a number of different surfaces by using various different methods. For example, iron on wood veneer sheets are well suited to kitchen counter tops or cupboards and are available in a number of different colors and types. There are bamboo veneer sheets, cherry veneer sheets, and oak veneer sheets, to name a few.
If you do not want to use iron on sheet veneer, you might consider using self adhesive veneer. Self adhesive veneer sheets can be applied to old desks or table tops that are scratched up. Once the adhesive sheet veneer has been applied to your furniture, it will look as good as if you had just bought it yesterday.
Something to keep in mind when using sheet veneer is that your surface must be as clean as possible before the veneer is applied. As well, you want to make sure that you have properly measured the surface you will be covering. This can most easily be accomplished by using a paper pattern, though some people prefer to measure the surface with a tape measure and then cut accordingly.
If you are concerned about whether your furniture, cupboards or counter tops will look authentic after applying sheet veneer, you may want to use real wood veneer sheets. Many people who are redecorating prefer to use high end sheet veneer made from real wood because it looks particularly classy and sophisticated. As well, it looks new for a longer period of time.
