If given a choice to pick between engineered MDF and solid wood for our furniture and interior décor needs, most of us would choose solid wood. Why? Because the perception is that furniture made with solid wood represents superior quality, the products are more durable, it's easy to clean and maintain, and it has better value in the long run. However, there are certain downsides of using solid wood, like moisture can be an issue, it is vulnerable to both heat and cold, and it can quickly become a victim of termites and other pest infestations.

To combat all this and more, we have medium-density fibreboards to our rescue. It is an engineered wood that is as good as wood.
