Solid Oak Furniture Sale
The Benefits of Oak Furniture
Oak is exceedingly sturdy wood and is both heavy and long-lasting. Thanks to its dense constitution and longevity, it has a distinctive and attractive light colour with a very prominent grain and is highly resistant. Here at Kalusto, we use oak that is sustainably sourced and environmentally friendly.
Thanks to its durability and hard-wearing properties, oak is perfect for wardrobes, chest of drawers, bedside tables, dressing tables, TV units, etc. In fact, it is ideal for any type of furniture in a modern home as it will withstand the wear and tear of daily living.
Why Choose Oak Furniture
Oak is an excellent choice of wood for the dining area, living room, hallway, or bedroom furniture. It is durable and resists everyday wear and tear while offering a natural beauty that fits into almost any home style. Its timeless design means that you can keep your oak pieces as part of your home décor for decades or even generations.
Often described as a very ‘British’ wood, oak has been used in quality furniture making as far back as the 14th century. English oak is one of the most popular oak wood species used to produce high quality European oak furniture. Our new oak wood furniture range includes oak sideboards, side tables, TV stands, display cabinets, dressers, and dining table sets, to suit any taste and style.
Acacia And Oak Compared
Acacia is a solid wood, 23% harder than oak. Both kinds of wood are durable and hard-wearing, and ideal for furniture making. Acacia can withstand the elements, so it is ideal for garden sofas, tables, and armchairs. Acacia trees have a shorter life span than oak, so acacia furniture is more expensive than oak.
How To Care for Oak Furniture
You will need to wax your oak furniture at least every six months or so. The wax helps to nourish the wood and create a lasting finish. Waxing oak helps protect the grain and will make the wood more crack-resistant, keeping the surface in the best condition possible. Use wax polish to treat your oak furniture as soon as you get it home. This way, you’re protecting it from the start.
Waxing oak forms a protective layer, so for everyday cleaning, all you need to do is wipe the surface down with a clean, damp cloth or use cleaning products specifically designed for hardwood. Blot the liquid with a clean, damp cloth for concentrated spills that could stain.
How To Polish Oak Items
Unlike some other woods, oak is exceptionally durable. However, if you want to get the most out of oak furniture, it is highly recommended that you dust and polish it regularly to prevent dust particles from causing lasting damage. Avoid using general household cleaning products as these can cause the wood to dry out and lead to lasting damage. You’ll typically need to repeat this process every two to three months to nurture the wood.
So, to polish your furniture properly:
- Apply the polish directly onto a clean cotton cloth
- Wipe along the grain
- If your furniture has intricate details, dab the wood polish directly with a soft-bristled brush and use it in a circular motion
- Use a soft cloth to remove any excess polish
