Dining tables come in many shapes, styles and sizes and the majority of them are still made from wood, in this blog we will have a look at some different wood types of wood and what is best for a dining table.
Oak - Oak is the classic wood for dining table production - it is hardwearing and able to handle frequent long-time usage. Another bonus is the patterning of oak, this is another reason it is so popular in table production allowing the beautiful wood grain to be seen in all its glory. It's perfect in the family home as it's hard enough to resist little dents. Now, if you are looking at a reclaimed oak dining table then you will be purchasing eco consciously and you will find that the wood has even more character than new oak dining tables.
Walnut - Walnut is one of the hardest woods, however not quite as hard as oak. It boasts beautiful patterning and can contain many shades of wood - it is particularly popular in the production of furniture with an urban feel, such as an industrial dining table, featuring a straight cut design with slim, sleek and clean lines.
Reclaimed / Rustic - Reclaimed wood has never been so popular - as a whole, we are leaning more and more to environmentally friendly purchases in all areas of our lives and this is just a true in furniture purchases. Reclaimed wood will bring warmth, history and individuality to your dining room that new wood can't. The wood when it was initially used would most likely be from mature trees not trees that are grown quickly specifically for furniture production.
