Benefits of Hardwood Furniture

The unmatched beauty of solid hardwood furniture features the dramatic grain patterns that give each piece a character all its own, one-of-a-kind handmade works of art that you would be proud to display in your home.

At The Oaks Store, each piece is crafted with honest materials that are simple and elegant, completely natural. The long life of hardwood furniture is due to the durable and reliable qualities that make it last for generations.

Furniture made of solid hardwood can withstand years of daily use through its durable nature by handling wear and tear, making it the wise choice for pieces that are beautiful and require less repair. These are more resistant to spills and stains. Hardwood floors do get scraped, scratched, scuffed, dented and damaged – especially in high traffic areas. However, wood flooring can most often simply be sanded, smoothed and refinished. It is rarely necessary to replace a wood floor.

The fact that it is environmentally smart is another bonus. Every tree that is used to make a piece of furniture is replaced by planting new ones. This makes hardwood furniture an eco-friendly option with a minimal carbon footprint.

Because wood floors are more natural than carpeting and other flooring options, it has a less of a polluting effect on the air. Wood produces oxygen during its growth cycle and stores carbon during its service life. Having a net zero carbon footprint means that there are no carbon emissions.
