Why Pine Furniture Will Look Great in your Home

Posted on January 17 2018

Furnishing your home might seem like an easy task, but it can actually be quite tricky. How can you ensure everything goes? What size should it all be? And what will stand the test of time?

Well, look no further because pine furniture has everything you need. It doesn’t matter what your decor is, this type of furniture comes in such an array of styles, shapes and sizes, it’s sure to fit the bill.

At The Really Good Oak Shop, pine is one of our favourite materials for home furniture. Here’s why we think pine furniture is a great investment:

1.    It looks fantastic

Thanks to its soft colour and grainy appearance, pine certainly looks the part. It is also particularly versatile, complementing a huge range of colour schemes, textures and interior design styles. Finally, thanks to its durability, if looked after pine furniture can look as good as new for years to come.

2.     It’s cheaper than oak

Because pine is a softwood, it is easier to work with than woods like oak. This makes it more affordable and great value for money if you’re furnishing a house on a budget. Despite the cheaper price tag, pine furniture is still a quality investment that beats options like flat pack furniture hands down.

3.    It’s easy to care for

All pine furniture needs is just a dry dust and it will last for many years.

No polish or a damp cloth should go near the finish.


4.    It can be personalised easily

Thanks to its natural light colour, pine is a highly adaptable wood that can be stained, painted or varnished. So, depending on your style and colour schemes, you can tailor your pine furniture exactly how you want it.

5.    It’s durable

Unlike some other woods, pine can be used to make all kinds of durable furniture, dining tables and coffee tables included. When it has been finished with a wax or lacquer, it is more than capable of coping with the demands of a busy family life, and is sure to still look good.
