How to choose the best quality wooden furniture?

 

Are you bored looking at the same old furniture every day? Do you feel your furniture needs a makeover? You have come to the right place. Before purchasing a furniture you must be sure of its quality and durability. The material used, construction and finishing are the three important aspects based on which quality of a wooden furniture can be determined. Let's look a little more into these.

Material used

The wood used determines the durability of your furniture. Hardwood comes from deciduous trees like oak, maple, teak, walnut, and cherry. They are long lasting and can withstand high usage even with less care. Softwood made from coniferous trees are also good in quality but need more care. Though engineered wood is not so common these days, usage of high-quality veneers can give a long lasting furniture.

Construction

How a furniture has been constructed can tell a lot about the look, durability, and functionality. In joining, screws and glue can be used but not a staple. A sturdy piece of furniture will not squeak, twist or wobble.

Finishing

Improper finishing can affect the overall quality of a furniture. A good furniture will be smooth when you run your hand over it. Inspect from different angles for scratches or dark lines across the surface produced because of sanding. High-quality staining can make a wood look like another one. Good finishing gives a smooth surface. The best pieces are properly done on the back and the sides.

Size of the table

 

If you are a small family or having less space to accommodate, then 2-4 seater is the ideal choice. If you are having more space and expecting guests quite often, 4-6 seater is a great option. 6-8 seater is the best bet for an investment.

Shape of the table

A rectangular dining table is used commonly. Many varieties are available in this shape and can easily fit into any space. A round or oval shape is space saving and comes with the flexibility of fitting more seats. Square shape gives an open and spacious feel. It is available with a variety of table top surfaces.

Dimensions of the table

The standard range of a dining table is 28”-30” tall. A good dining table must give you the best comfort. There should be enough room above the knee and the height should be about the same level as your elbows when you are sitting down. Wood finish gives warmth and texture to the table. It is a traditional style finish that has been used since years. A glossy or matte finish is easy to clean and gives a crisp look. A clear glass dining table gives for the open and modern setting.
