The oak wood used to manufacture this furniture is cut and aged over a number of years and stays extremely hard. Oak furniture has the ability to bear scratches and scrapes. It is very easy to restore and eliminate these scratches. The natural grains within oak wood helps it to absorb stains very well, so no need to worry if you have kids around. Due to its versatility oak wood furniture can be produced in different colours matching the interior of your house. The natural colour of oak adds warmth to your rooms. Many items of antique furniture are made from oak due to the extreme durability of this wood. One way of noticing the quality and solidity of oak is that the furniture is heavy to carry and move around the home, so it is a good idea to plan ahead with your furniture layout before it arrives at your doorstep, especially larger items like solid oak wardrobes and beds. Taking care of furniture made from oak wood is very easy and every few months you may have to polish the furniture. It is better to keep the furniture away from heat and humidity.
The next item on your to-do list has to do with inspection of the covers for any factory defects, rips, tears or anything that can lead to the deterioration of the cover or the furniture itself. Should you find any defect, make sure to bring them back to the dealer and have them replaced as they should be covered by a warranty. This step will probably be the most time consuming one but will be the most rewarding one. As it is said, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure! Carefully read the instructions and manuals to make sure you understand the installation procedure clearly.
As regards the wood, be careful in selecting it properly. Certain conditions would determine the type of wood you‘ll want i.e. hardwood or softwood. For instance, if you plan to use the furniture outdoors, you have to select hardwood that can withstand the elements of nature better. They warp less and also absorb lesser amounts of water. Oak and teak are the two best woods that can be used outdoors. If you plan to use your furniture indoors, you can go for some variety of softwood like mango wood or rosewood. Indian sheesham is also used extensively for the manufacture of indoor furniture. As already said, the placement issue plays another big role in determining the furniture that you want to buy. You must always have an idea of the space available to place your furniture. This is because you may have trouble if you find that you have bought a furniture item and there‘s insufficient space to keep it. It would be nothing short of a disaster. Also, too small a furniture piece at a relatively larger space would be an eyesore.
Oak furniture, as well as authentic and one hundred percent solid wood furniture are timeless and match any design theme. Solid wood and oak furniture is also ideal for contemporary design. Because oak furniture pieces are hardwood, they last for a very long time. To determine the quality of the furniture you are buying, search for a reliable manufacturer first. There are manufacturers that specialise in crafting bedroom furniture, living room furniture, kitchen furniture and hallway furniture made from hardwood. Because this is their specialty, they know exactly how to look for the best materials and how to assemble them into functional furniture. Check the materials of the furniture you are buying. For instance, if you are buying wood furniture, you would do well to rely on oak furniture instead of MDF. Although oak is a tad more expensive, it is much higher quality and will last longer. This is one of the most durable hardwood materials available. Oak pieces are also timeless and work with any design theme. You can mix and match different types of solid wood with your oak furniture as well.
