Kitting out your new home with solid wood furniture

Posted on September 13 2017

Oak furniture for new homes

Moving into a new home can be tiring and stressful, but one of the most exciting bits of the process is picking new furniture. Maybe your old stuff doesn’t fit, perhaps it’s the wrong era – or you might just want a fresh new look. Whatever your reasoning, picking furniture, soft furnishings and colour schemes can definitely be classed as ‘the fun part’ of moving.

If you’ve got access to a floor plan to assess the shape and size of the rooms in your new abode, we recommend using it to plan what you’re going to put where. By doing this you’ll be able to spot any spaces that you need to fill, and can see which pieces of your existing furniture might be headed for the charity shop.

At The Really Good Oak Shop, we think moving to a new house is the perfect time to splash out on some new furniture. We also know that after the stress of moving, not everyone wants to spend their first weeks screwdriver in hand assembling flat pack furniture that may only last a few months.

That’s why we’ve put together our top five, ready to go, solid wood pieces your new home can’t be without:

Solid Oak TV Unit, £319
