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.
If you‘re contemplating to buy dark furniture, you have to keep a few things in mind. First, you must have a clear picture about the space where you would place the furniture. It‘s nothing unusual for such items to make your room feel smaller and hence it isn‘t advisable to keep dark furniture in a box room. The lighting of your room is also vital in accentuating the presence of such furniture. Natural light is considered to be the best for such pieces like any other Indian furniture. The lightness of the flooring as well as the walls is also desirable. Having a piece of dark Indian wooden furniture can create a striking contrast. Whenever someone enters the room, his eyes would be drawn towards the dark Indian furniture pieces. However, be careful not to over-brighten the room as that would be a spoiler.
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.
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!
