Don’t Buy Furniture Before You Read This (Wood Type, Price & Quality)!
Wood Types Based on Price & Durability
You all probably know that furniture prices are greatly influenced by the quality of the material itself. Many of the furniture that you find in furniture stores is very varied even though the models don’t look so different.
Recently, I tried to dig deeper than it turned out that teak wood was not all good. For example, Teak is not only one type, but 3 types are distinguished by grade, namely Grade A Teak, Grade B Teak, and Grade C Teak. Usually, all of them are called “Teak” not using Grade even though quality and price can be very much different. So next time when you buy wood furniture and the seller says that the furniture is made of teak wood, always ask the wood for this grade A, grade B or grade C, then if you need to ask again West Java Teak or Central Java Teak wood East, or Sulawesi Teak wood.
Not many people know this, but I don’t want you to buy furniture like buying a cat in a sack, right? So this time we try to compare some of the most popular types of wood in Indonesia and abroad.
Teak wood is very famous for its durability, in addition to its elegant and exotic appearance. Teak is quite hard and waterproof (only for Teak Grade A & Grade B, because it contains oil). Teak wood is resistant to mold, termites, cracks, and decay. Most teak is used for furniture (furniture), windows, floors (parakeets), or doors.
