Why Oak Dining Tables are a ‘Must Have’ Investment

There is something about wooden furniture that just says security. Think about it. How much more grounded and cosy does sitting down for dinner on a wooden table feel, when you compare it to the same scenario on a plastic table? Wood is synonymous with permanence and strength; this is why so many of us gather around it at mealtimes.

The good news is that oak furniture in Cambridgeshire is more affordable now than ever before. You can get your hands on a beautiful oak dining table for a fraction of what it would have cost twenty years ago. So, what are you waiting for? Give your home the warmth and security that it needs with a signature oak table.

This guide to the benefits of investing in oak, particularly for dining tables, will explain why this wonder material is such a sound choice.

Extremely Wear Resistant

Oak furniture is not bought on a whim. It is a solid investment, a valuable long term choice. This is because it lasts for such a long time. Things like oak dining tables are routinely passed on, through the generations, for hundreds of years. This is something that your grandchildren could be moving into their new home one day.

And, as mealtimes are an occasion when all of the family comes together, this degree of permanence and durability is very suitable. The tannin content in oak actually helps it to stand up to regular wear and tear and the intrusion of insects. If you buy high quality oak furniture in Cambridgeshire, it will be strong, long lasting, and a pleasure to look at.

Able to Adapt to Any Décor

Top quality oak furniture in Cambridgeshire is guaranteed to add sophistication and elegance to any home. One of the best things about oak, especially for dining rooms, is that it can be incorporated into a wide variety of décor choices. For example, an oak dining table would enhance a nautical themed space just as much as it would a sleek, minimalistic one.

Do try to remember that, generally speaking, the lighter the colour of the wood, the more modern and bright the most complementary décor will be. On the other hand, if you are keen to create something a little more old fashioned (or even a bit gothic), opt for a darker tones and shades of oak.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

The typical oak dining table is easy to keep clean and maintain. However, it does require an oiling, with a natural product, a couple of times per year. This should only take twenty minutes or so and it will help to protect the smooth, beautiful finish on its surface. Otherwise, your oak furniture in Cambridgeshire should be wipe clean and stain resistant.

If you have carpet in your dining table, you might want to pick up some plastic or rubber protectors. These little things fit neatly on the bottom of table legs, so that the weight of the furniture doesn’t make a permanent indentation in the carpet. You can get these from lots of furniture shops or you can buy them online at a low cost.
