Ten Reasons to Buy Oak Furniture
Ten Reasons to Buy Oak Furniture
Whilst most of the Nineties has thankfully remained ‘in the Nineties’; there’s something worrying about one of that era’s unwelcomed legacies which still adorn many households across the UK: Faux-wood, flat pack furniture. Why should we substitute the tasteful for the less hassle, unflattering quality of a DIY flat pack which will inevitably disintegrate?
There are many answers to the above issue; to which, none are excusable. You can’t beat a traditional piece of good quality, solid oak furniture. Some may argue that the faux option is more affordable and less hassle, but truth be told – this is not the case. Let us leave the horrible kitschy furniture behind and look at ten reasons why you should fork out a few extra quid, for a good solid piece of oak:
Robust – A good sturdy oak sideboard’s going to last. Especially in a very active household where kids run amok. Even with a little wear and tear, oak only gains character and is an asset to your home.
Practical – Again, if you’re raising a young family it only makes sense to furnish your house with something that can withstand a bash or two.
Classy – Oak is a very aesthetically pleasing wood. A really simple set of light oak furniture can really lift the drabness of a living room. Why not invest in some reclaimed oak railway sleepers and make a nice feature mantlepiece for your living room?
Childproof – Many young families see great benefit in kitting out their children’s bedrooms with a set of solid oak beds and wardrobes. You may pay a little more at the start; but you inevitably pay for the quality and safety of this durable hardwood- that can be easily sanded, treated, coated and re-painted, time and time again.
Great Value – Oak being one of the hardwoods means that you get more value for money – you may think that you’re saving money by taking the less expensive, flat pack route, but in the long run, taking into consideration the durability and easy maintenance of a good solid oak – it really is a good sturdy investment.
Versatility – Oak’s such a versatile wood. Whether treated or untreated; there’s no doubt that it’ll match and compliment your home décor.
Affordable, yet tasteful. – Contrary to what you might think, you can – for example, pick up oak dining tables for maybe 10% more than a cheaper, less imperishable table in most retail stores and even online.
Easy Assembly– Most good quality oak comes pre-assembled meaning you don’t have to spend hours trying to translate and configure the instructions of the flat pack.
Inheritance – Oak will last a lifetime – why not two? Pass your beautiful furniture down the generations.
Easily Picked Up – Whether buying an antique, a second hand piece or a brand new oak desk and home office set; look no further than your local high street or online to invest in a great piece of quality furniture.
