We have used plywood to build our furniture, interior walls, roofing and other such projects since time immemorial, hiding them under a layer of beautifully functional layer of laminates or veneers. We seldom use plywood on its own, but today the humble sheet of plywood proudly shows off its stripes in a resurgence of popularity driven by striking, original designs. In this article, we will explore 7 ways that you can get supremely creative with plywood furniture, with or without the support of laminates and veneers.
1. Folding Dressing Area
We all have a well-built closet to store our attires and accessories but what if we could jazz-up our rooms with a designated area just for dressing up? By using strong, borer and termite proof light coloured plywood, you can easily build a folding dressing area and install it anywhere in your room where you feel comfortable. The best part is that because of its foldable nature, it saves space instead of taking up more. It can be a great addition to a guest room as well, imparting a sophisticated aura to any home. The light, natural color palette of plywood furniture helps make a small space look bigger.
2. Minimalistic Multi-Stack Bookcase
Every avid reader holds one corner of the house to be the most sacred: their bookshelf. If you love reading and collecting books, it is only fair to have an equally appealing bookcase to hold your temple of knowledge and showcase it proudly. With the use of moisture-resistant and borer & termite resistant plywood, you are sure to make a sturdy bookcase. Make sure that the compartments are of varied sizes to give it an elegant touch. You can take your bookcase one step above the normal by using the plywood shelves and mounting them onto the wall with invisible supports to create a unique ‘floating bookcase’.
3. Stylish Coffee Table
Have you ever seen anything more beautiful than a space with all-wood furniture? It is no wonder that a lot of interior designers are adopting furniture made of wood or given a wooden finish as it accentuates and brings out the best in any space. Our advice would be to keep the design simple and let the natural wood markings of the plywood take precedence. Create simple coffee tables, chairs and even quaint dining tables with strong, durable plywood sheets and adorn them with wood grain veneers to drive this look home!

4. Handy Plant Shelf
Consult with any design pro and you'll learn that plants are always a good idea for an interior. Indoor plants are often a low-maintenance way of getting some fresh air while sitting on your couch! Let your choice of plants perch upon a plant shelf made of strong, moisture-resistant wood and you’ll have a trendy interior piece with the goodness of some greenery.

6. Wooden Night-Stand
Imagine yourself waking up at the wee hours of dawn and reaching out for a swallow of water next to your bed and realising you don’t have a bedside table. A nightstand on either or both sides of the bed can save us a lot of trouble! You can make it in any design you want: a shot, rectangular table with multiple drawers to hold your essentials, a round table with hairpin legs or even a mixture of both.
