Solid pine bedroom furniture and solid oak bedroom furniture are two different but wonderful choices.
Pine wood is a lightweight wood that is pliable and is often used in rustic, southwestern, mission, Mexican, and country bedroom furniture. It is a reasonably priced wood that is easily crafted and easy to maintain and repair. Its knotty good looks can be highlighted with a clear finish. The grain in pine is often unique to the tree and the number of knots any piece of pine wood may have can vary considerably. Craftsmen will try to use similar boards in constructing furniture sets but variation is part of its charm and should be expected. Many prefer it because of its natural variation.
For those that prefer absolute uniformity, pine furniture is also available in a range of painted and lacquered finishes. Pine is softwood, as are all evergreens. It is less expensive but requires a little extra care. You need to be a little more careful about scratching it or denting it.
Solid pine bedroom furniture provides a cozy comfortable look and it generates a natural pine aroma that is well-liked. It is a long-time favorite of the American indoors. It is also a 'Carbon Neutral' product that is easily renewable.
Solid oak bedroom furniture also has a solid history behind it going back to the middle ages. Oak is a slow growing wood, so mature trees require more time to re-generate. As a result, oak has become more expensive and is not as available as it was in previous generations.
Oak wood is a very hard wood known for its great strength and durability as well as being naturally resistant to fungi and parasites. It is a subtlety attractive wood and will not scratch or dent as easily as pine.
Oak furniture sets are available in a wide range of styles from traditional to contemporary. In fact, oak is used in almost every style of furniture. It is so strong and long-lasting that after 30 to 40 years, instead of buying new furniture, oak can be sanded down and refinished to become like-new, even with a change in stain color. This makes oak renewable for future generations.
Strength, beauty, durability, diversity, renewability, solid oak furniture is the keystone of hardwood furniture.
