choosing the right wood for your van conversion
When it comes to your walls and ceilings, you may be asking yourself:
"Which wood is right for me?"
In this post we'll go over the various plywood finishes we offer for our Foundation Kits, and what you can expect from each one.
- PROS: Durable and anti-microbial, while also offering a unique color and grain style
- Environmentally friendly and easy to buff out scratches and re-seal the wood
- CONS: More prone to warping than other woods as well as scratching and denting
- PROS: Incredibly durable and scratch-resistant with protective layers of paper and resin that are easy to clean
- CONS: More expensive, and if chipped, not easily repairable. Screwing into it makes it prone to chipping
- PROS: Incredibly strong wood that is light, beautiful, and offers a natural finish
- 6-ply core makes it rigid and not prone to warping
- CONS: It is time-consuming to seal the wood with oil, stain, polyurethane, or paint
- PROS: Offers a wide variety of wood finishes, using real wood veneer that can be sanded and sealed/stained
- Provides a more "natural" aesthetic to a space
- CONS: Time-consuming to finish and not as strong as other woods due to its MDF core
And that just about sums it up! If you're still curious about which wood is right for you, send us a message.
