Feng Shui Tip: The Benefits of Natural Oak in Your Home

You don't need to rearrange the furniture in your home to get a good vibe. Using natural woods, such as oak or pine can help turn your home into a calm and relaxing environment.

Unvarnished, natural wood matches any decor. For example, an oak sideboard will look great in a classic or modern setting and will stand the test of time. Oak furniture especially creates a great canvas to work with. Oak comes in many different neutral shades and when decorating your home provides a perfect backdrop for coloured candles, and decorations.

Natural oak, pine and ash are usually cut from sustainable sources. This means that when you add wood furniture to your house you know you are being environmentally friendly as the trees are regrown. This is in contrast to more modern furniture materials, such as MDF - which is often finished with a plastic veneer.

Easy to care for
Once properly polished, oak and other wood furniture will last for years with the minimum of care. Once a year it is advised to feed your wood furniture with a wood polish to ensure that the wood doesn't dry out. The advantage of natural wood furniture over modern alternatives is that even the deepest scratches can be polished out.
