HOG health benefits of solid wood


Do you wonder why the use of solid wood furniture has become a trend? Why almost all offices, gardens and homes are replacing their old textured furniture for solid wooden ones? It is because of the numerous benefits that this furniture-type proffers.

Ranging from strength and durability to ease of maintenance, work-ability, environmental and atmospheric benefits to health benefits, wooden furniture is significantly changing the face of modern interior décor.

Considering the health benefits of wooden furniture, it is believed that solid wood furniture provides the same effects provided by spending time in nature such as forest reserves having positive effects on the human brain and processing, sleep and even reduced hospital-stay period.

Furniture made from materials other than solid wood present numerous toxins which include fire-retardants, formaldehyde, benzene and vinyl acetate which are highly reduced in solid wood furniture and thereby decrease chances of cancer by solid wood furniture users. Wooden furniture also does not emit carbon into the atmosphere hence reducing the rate of atmospheric pollution.

According to reports from a research conducted by the Planet Ark Environmental Foundation on the benefits of wooden furniture and products, it was discovered that wooden products have psychological and physiological effects on the human body, this being one of the many researches conducted on this topic over the years.

It has been observed that wooden beds reduce blood pressure and anxiety and help improve emotional and relaxation levels during sleep, how amazing that is! These psychological benefits of wooden furniture are believed to stem from the reduced carbon emission used in the production of wooden furniture unlike materials like steel.

A Canadian research , “Appearance of wood products and psychological well-being” showed that these effects are primarily produced by the colour and texture of wood that generate warmth, comfort and relaxation which is very difficult to achieve with furniture that are not made from solid wood.

It should however be noted that in the production and use of solid wood furniture, forest regeneration and wood source replacement are important in maintaining environmental balance and a conducive climate.
