WHY SPEND MONEY ON AN OAK DINING TABLE?
Natural and Solid wood furniture is durable, beautiful, and makes an impression in any home. Wooden tables in particular are reliable and practical. That's why choosing natural and solid oak dining tables in UK combines the best of both worlds, ensuring you have an ergonomic-friendly, functional piece without sacrificing style or complementary features.
The best oak dining tables fetch a high price tag, but there are several reasons for that; oak furniture specializes in strength, grain, tanning, and durability.
Top oak dining tables resist compression and weight well, but it does increase the overall weight. That's why oak tables are usually chunky and thick; it needs strength to hold itself up.
Oak grain markings are prominent and offer a visual appeal that is noticeable from a distance. Compare that to pine furniture, which has subtler and thinner grain in a softer encasing. Thicker grain is what makes oak the better material, especially for those who prefer rural architecture.
Tannin is an organic substance found in several kinds of wood, including oak. It's a bitter compound that creates a deep orange hue, which is why alcohol manufacturers prefer oak wood casks to flavor whiskey and wine. Why does this matter to furniture? Tanning resists bugs and mold, contributing to the oak's longevity.
Finally, durability is the number one factor to consider when buying a table. What happens if you spill something on the table? Can you clean it off? What if you drop something heavy on it? Oak tables are enduring but porous, but you can prevent problematic spillages with a suitable varnish as extra protection.
Although the initial cost may be off-putting at first glance, furniture made out of oak wood is a worthy investment. Not only will it hold up over the years, but it also has all the properties needed to complement any style in any home.

ECO-FRIENDLINESS OF OAK TABLES
We should also mention the environmental friendliness, incredible strength and attractiveness of an oak dining room table. A natural and solid oak table purifies the air, has a beneficial effect on health and charges the house by infusing the energy of nature. This is due to the release of essential oils. Furniture is worth buying for rooms with high humidity: over the years, the resistance of the material to moisture and climate changes also increases.
The guarantee of durability is explained by resistance to mould and insect pests. Usually, these interior items are used by more than one generation of the family. An oak table should be bought because of the natural attractiveness of the material. The finish of the model is original and refined, and if so desired, can incorporate carving decorations, preserving the integrity for many years.
However, as with any other wooden furniture, the manufacture of which is often made to order, an contemporary oak dining table has some special nuances. To guests at the table to feel comfortable, each person should be allocated about 60 centimeters of free space, and chairs should be easily placed near it, without disturbing anyone.
