When I buy oak furnitureLook for parts that are well built. The joints between the parts must be securely attached and you should not be able to see any gaps between the parts. Always verify that the furniture is made only of oak and not of oak veneers. With oak veneers, oak is glued onto pieces made from cheaper woods. If the price sounds too good to be true, then it probably isn't. Veneer oak may begin to show signs of wear soon after your purchase, so despite its true oak finish, it's just cheap wood underneath. It has the appeal of an oak finish without the strong and durable characteristics of solid oak.

Always check the dimensions of your room before buying a piece of furniture. Solid oak furniture can be large and heavy, so consider the size and shape of the room, and try to avoid buying oversized pieces for tight spaces. Make sure you have an entrance big enough to fit the furniture before putting it in your new home.

Solid oak furniture will last for centuries and can be passed on as family heirlooms. New oak furniture should have no grooves, and each horizontal plane, such as the top surface of the chair arms or the surface of a table, should be level. Furniture surfaces should feel smooth and look attractive. Oak that has been coated or stained should still retain its uniform appearance. The grain should be clear to the end with a warm and natural look.

Before you buy high quality oak furniture, take the time to do some research, be critical, and verify that you are getting an excellently designed piece of furniture. This will help you find a beautiful piece of solid oak furniture for your home that you can enjoy for years to come.
