Furniture You Should Decorate with Wood Appliques

 |  Furniture Tips

Moving into a new house is expensive, and if you need to buy new furniture it’s even more costly. Shopping for furniture on a budget is possible, and there are ways that you can vamp-up simple, plain furniture to look more expensive, and designed. There’s the go-to paint or vanish option, or you can add wood on lays to add features and decoration.

These are the 5 pieces of furniture we recommend decorating with furniture appliques:

  1. Bed Frames

Wooden bed frames are perfect for updating as there’s so many ways to adapt them. You can varnish them, decorate them with lights or add wood mouldings! There are many decorative wooden bed carvings to choose from at SCF Hardware.

  1. Chest of Drawers

Wood mouldings are great if you choose to change the theme or style of a room as they can be applied quickly and they are a cost effective solution. Transform drawers to look like they are new furniture fittings by adding wood appliques, followed by a lick of varnish or paint. There’s a vast selection of choice available in our range of decorative wood appliques at SCF Hardware.

If you want to make that extra change to complement the new appearance, swap the cabinet handles for something new – perhaps even modern drawer knobs!

  1. Dining Tables

Decorate the lip or sides of dining tables by adding a furniture applique, such as a scroll wood applique. This sort of detailing is reminiscent of period furniture and could make your table look more valuable.


  1. Wardrobes

You can get creative with a wardrobe due to their size. Add a feature to each corner, such as with swan neck wood mouldings, or place flower wood carvings in the centre of each door.


  1. Bedside Tables

Add a wooden furniture medallion to bedside tables to add a decorative feature. You can paint them to personalise the pieces or apply a wood oil such as Rubio Monocoat to match them to the colour of your existing unit.
