Quality furniture is made of a variety of materials but wood furniture is extremely durable and adds some elegance to your home. Sugar House Furniture makes a wide range of furniture pieces made with a variety of woods. Choosing the right kind of wood for your furniture is important if you want your furniture to last. Below is a list of quality woods that Sugar House furniture offers.
What Furniture Piece Are You Choosing
Depending on the type of furniture you are building or buying, different woods may look better than others. Soft woods may be better for end tables while a harder wood is better for dinning tables. Hardwoods are chosen more often for building furniture because they are more durable. While they are dense and durable, hardwoods are often more expensive than softwoods, so when choosing wood for your furniture keep these prices in mind.
If you are looking for exterior furniture pieces, the options for wood may vary, but for pieces like bed frames, dining tables, or office desks, the following woods are some of the most popular. Choosing the best wood for your furniture depends on what coloring you like best and how long you want your piece to last.
The most popular hardwood for building furniture is oak. Mostly found in flooring and roofs, oak resists warping and has beautiful natural banding. White oak is more common for furniture and also is moisture resistant. This makes it a perfect wood for your furniture. Especially for dinning tables, dressers, or bathroom vanities. Red oak can also be used for furniture and looks just as stunning as white oak.
If you are looking for a strong and versatile wood, cherry wood is a great choice for indoor furniture. Cherry ages well and will last for a long time when made into furniture. Sugar House Furniture has multiple furniture options made of cherry wood and while it has a read color, it can be stained to add extra detail.
Carving or designing intricate work is made easier with maple. Its light color can be stained easily or left to shine in all its glory. Maple is known for its hardness which makes it a popular wood for your furniture. Dressers, chairs, bookcases, or other big pieces are popular options for this wood.
Choosing hickory will give your furniture the longest life because it is the hardest wood that is hard to manipulate. Hickory is used for tool handles and has been traditionally used for rustic furniture pieces.
Walnut is another wood that can come with a higher price tag but it works well if you want a rich color for interior or exterior furniture. Accenting your home is done with walnut furniture. With straight grain and texture, walnut furniture is simple and elegant.
As a tropical endangered wood, mahogany is not used as much as it once was. The shining qualities of mahogany are its resistance to rotting and decay and the straight grain makes it easy to cut and build into furniture.
Another exotic wood is teak, which is known for its unique earthy scent. Teak wood was traditionally used for making boats and it is highly oily. Because of the extra oil it is difficult to stain, so furniture owners or crafters usually let the natural wood color shine.
