Choose Oak Furniture for a Stylish LookOak furniture is the perfect way to bring the beauty of natural wood into your home. Whether you live in a contemporary apartment or period property, oak furniture is so versatile that it can adapt to most homes, and looks equally at home in a warehouse loft as it does in a Victorian family property. If you’re considering purchasing new furniture for your home but need a little advice, why not read our handy guide to choosing the perfect oak furniture for your home.
Dine in the Lap of Luxury
Dining at an oak table is a real luxury – the natural beauty of the wood grain and knots will blend with any type of interior. Oak dining tables are not only elegant but also extremely sturdy – this makes them an ideal choice for families with young children or anyone looking for a durable table that will stand the test of time.
Oak doesn’t just come in one colour – it’s possible to buy washed oak, which is a lighter shade, rustic oak, which has natural grains similar to pine and even reclaimed oak which has a slightly darker finish. You can usually find oak furniture in a natural or stained finish, and these stains are designed to bring out the beauty of the wood.
Relax in an Oak Bed
A solid oak bed frame is a worthwhile investment that will last you for many years to come. With so many cheaper bed frames available on the market, it is tempting to save money on a bed, but when you consider how sturdy and durable oak beds are, and just how much time you spend sleeping, it is well worth the extra money.
Many oak beds are finished with a special blend of oil and wax which enhances the natural beauty of the wood and protects it from knocks and scratches.
Multimedia units for your television, PS3 and Blu-ray player in solid oak are a practical choice when children are around. Because they are so durable, they can withstand bumps and knocks without being damaged, and they add a beautiful, warm and welcoming feel to your living room.
You should always ensure when buying oak furniture that the wood has come from a managed forest and that the supplier is committed to sustainability; this way you can be sure that oak furniture will continue to be available for years to come.
Oak furniture and multimedia need good care. To maitain the colour you need to wax regularly - every 6 months. Waxing keeps the wood crack resistant and in perfect as new condition.
