Natural Wood Vs Faux Wood Countertops | A Must Read Before Buying

Wood countertops are excellent and classic design choices for any home, but choosing between natural wood countertops and man-made faux wood countertops can be a rather difficult decision.

While they share similar appearance, many things involves careful consideration because each of them has their own unique features.

In this blog, we give you a brief yet detailed insight on Suar Wood and KompacPlus in order to help you decide which one is the best choice for you and your home.

Suar Wood


Suar Wood is a high quality natural wood manufactured using the latest generation Tanalised E pressure treatment.

After the treatment process, the wood slabs will be dried for a couple of years to set the wood movement. As such, the wood does an incredible job at retaining moisture and not drying out, especially when it receives proper care.

Specifically Designed For Table Tops


While Suar Wood’s appealing finish is attractive to artisans and builders, its special grain texture makes it particularly suited for carving and an ideal selection for designer tables.

The hardiness and striking wood grains of Suar Wood make it a decent pick for fairly large table tops like conference tables and dining tables.

However, it is not only for huge table tops as its beautiful wood figure makes it favorable as an exquisite centerpiece in any working or living space.

Thanks to its resistance to decay and insects, Suar Wood is highly commendatory in fine furniture making compared to other woods. It is of top quality and only requires basic maintenance such as water and mild soap to maintain its grandeur.
