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.
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.
It may be a more expensive proposition, but it also provides the best protection for your furniture over time. Covers that are undersized will not give adequate protection to your furniture, and covers that are too big will tend to be blown away (or cause your furniture to get blown away). Another unwelcome development from loose covers is the creation of pools of water that can cause moisture as well as become breeding grounds for mosquitoes (yuck) and other insects. During winter, these pools of water can turn into ice and cause damage to the cover and the furniture as well.
If you opt to buy covers made of inferior plastic or vinyl, your covers may last for two to three years at the most. These types of materials are easily damaged by extremes in temperature. They tend to expand and contract constantly and at such a high level, strain is caused on the stitching thread or heated seams used to put them together. In contrast, higher quality materials are often made to be waterproof, UV resistant, do not expand or contract very much, are lightweight, and some may even have soft linings on the underside to prevent any scratching of the furniture (this is an excellent feature). Examples of these high quality materials are the Tron-Wever fabric, Dupont Tyvek, any high-quality soft-lined vinyl, denier polyester, or the high-tech polypropylene. To see examples of these products, you can peruse a variety of shopping and manufacturers‘ websites. Take your time to see what‘s out there and you‘ll be glad you did!
