Some surprising bedroom furniture information...
You may not know that the bedroom has not always been the position where individuals rest. Up to now only the rich could manage homes large enough to provide a individual room for getting to sleep. Ordinary individuals who were lucky enough to own a bed usually kept it in a area of the living area. Other individuals rested wherever they could, and some individuals actually rested in the same place as their animals. This was still occurring in the countryside, up until the beginning of World War II.
As the war and time progressed, it became very common for individual sleeping bedrooms to be integrated into modern housing, particularly as new housing was being built after the war damaged many houses. Furniture in these early bedrooms was usually basic and rare. The more rich individuals were, the more furniture they had. Generally furniture included beds, chest of drawers and wardrobes with the odd dressing table if afforded. Solid oak bedroom furniture was something that most individuals could only dream of having.
After some time, the contemporary bedroom involved a washstand, in the absence of bathrooms. Usually washing facilities were limited to a jug of (usually very cold) water placed on the washstand, usually with a marble water-resistant top. Washrooms were usually located outside, in the garden. Chamber pots were kept in the bedroom, either under the bed or beneath nightstand.
Mirrors were generally found in bedrooms at this time, and were usually pretty affordable. The dressing table was more common in bedrooms, along with other basic bedroom furniture.
Contemporary homes these days are generally smaller than homes used to be, and the double bed used to generally measure around 4ft 6ins. These times, however, despite some having smaller houses many people choose beds that are up to 6ft. It’s also common for TV’s and computer equipment to be found in the bedroom these days too, and so the availability of cabinets and dressing tables that double up as workstations is not unheard of.
The nightstand, otherwise known as the bedroom table, has since seen cupboard space replaced with drawers these days. Wardrobes, once reserved only for the wealthy, are also experiencing from something of a update, too. Hanging space is generally more suitable than shelves, although smaller shelves are still more suitable for storing footwear. Many wardrobes now have the versatility of being tailored to offering mostly hanging or shelf space, or a mixture of the two.
As you can see, furniture has come a long, long way.
Solid Oak Bedroom Furniture...
Oak has long been used for creating furniture around the world. Craftsmen have found many uses for this wonderful, resilient material throughout the years, such as construction, ship building and furniture manufacture.

Our craftsmen only ever hand-craft our solid Oak bedroom furniture using 100% sustainable American White oak.

Solid Oak bedroom furniture in the UK...
Oak has been brought in from the United States since the beginning of the Twentieth century. The first oak bedroom furniture was of a kind which established a main part of the Arts and Crafts movement. This kind of furniture included distinct lines, exposed joints and was generally finished with a varnish. This design of furniture is still available and some people prefer this design.
The option of solid Oak, as a material for bedroom furniture, has not been in supply until the past few years. After the First World War, the shortage of solid Oak meant that oak bedroom furniture was replaced by an assortment of Oak and other types of wood. Through the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s, plastic material became a well-known material for furniture production as it showed a craving for all things modern. Of course, nowadays we think of plastic material for garden and patio furniture, but this did not come about until the 80's, when a revival of solid oak bedroom furniture happened, and made oak once more a well-known choice for furniture manufacture.

American White Oak for beautiful solid Oak bedroom furniture...
We only ever work with sustainable American White Oak, and there are several reasons for this. Some European Oak is no longer sustainable, and we will not manufacture oak bedroom furniture from any source that is not sustainable. The numerous variety of American White Oak allows us to produce wonderful oak bedroom furniture with the earth's resources in mind.
Every item of solid oak bedroom furniture that we design and make is made from sustainable American White Oak. This Oak is widespread throughout Eastern USA. Eight of the White Oak species are commercially grown.
American White Oak compares very closely in appearance to European Oak. The sapwood of American White Oak is light-coloured, and the heartwood is light to dark brown. It has a medium to course texture, with longer rays than red oak, so this is why the white Oak has unique grain marks. This makes it perfect in production for solid oak bedroom furniture.
Primarily a hard and heavy wood with extreme durability, American White Oak is very good for steam bending – this is another reason that it’s fantastic for furniture manufacturing. Southern White Oak is fast grown with wide growth rings, and the heartwood is resistant to decay, but also extremely resistant to preservation treatment.
American White oak is readily available in the USA, and is used widely because of the amount of choices it gives you, and its suitability for manufacturing traditional solid oak bedroom furniture. It’s also one of the most exported materials in the USA because of this.
American White Oak is also used in construction, flooring, structural joinery, external joinery, mouldings, doors, kitchen units, panelling, railway sleepers and many others. White oak can differ in colour, texture, features and qualities according to the growing area. It’s always suggested that manufactures always work with supplies so that the wood used is specific to the needs of the product.
The White Oak tree and solid Oak bedroom furniture...
Some white oak can differ in size and form; some are unsuitable for wood production. Others can differ in size from 15 meters to 30 meters.
American White Oak, despite usually similar to European Oak, has a more variable colour. This varies from pale yellow-brown to light reddish-brown, sometimes with a pink tinge. But the grain is generally straight, and the texture varies; from coarse to medium coarse. This is why bedroom furniture made from American White Oak is so unique.
The quality of the Oak relies upon a lot on the conditions of growth. Slow-grown northern white Oak is usually lighter in weight than the Oak grown in the southern states. The Appalachian Mountains used to offer much of the light white oak used most commonly for furniture and cabinet-making. Southern white Oak is usually quickly grown, and its wide growth-rings are relatively coarse and best for constructional use.
American White Oak will dry gradually, and compares closely with European Oak in durability, hence its suitability in producing solid oak bedroom furniture. It also compares fairly closely with European oak in general strength but on the whole, its higher density provides rather higher durability which makes it extremely durable. It also has varying working properties, according to the rate of growth. Our slow-grown white Oak is easier to work with than fast-grown. The wood can be glued, stained and polished and takes nails and screws well. All of these factors go some way to demonstrate just why American White Oak is so well suited for the production of solid oak bedroom furniture.
Prolonging the life of your solid Oak bedroom furniture...
After you have spent time selecting the items of bedroom furniture that you want, it goes without saying that you will want to make sure that you’re wonderful furniture lasts and lasts. You might be amazed to know that there are few very maintenance steps that you can take to extend the life of your new bedroom furniture.
When deciding where you are going to place your bedroom furniture, it’s always a wise decision to keep a gap of around 1” between any walls and the back of your furniture. This will make sure that the air flow keeps your furniture at the the best possible temperature.
Try not to place your solid oak bedroom furniture directly in front side of an air conditioning unit or radiator. The continuous change in temperature could result in your furniture drying out and cracking. Of course, Oak is a natural product and a certain amount of movement can be expected, but extreme movement could be witnessed as a result of solid oak bedroom furniture not being kept in the best position.
When positioning your oak bedroom furniture on a wooden floor, then always place protective felt beneath feet or legs of the furniture. This will protect the furniture and the ground beneath.
Oak is a natural product, and the colour can naturally reduce during its life-time. This is often due to the effects of sunshine and household lights. To help prolong the richness in the colour of your traditional oak bedroom furniture, try to regularly change lights and other items to help give an even colour to your furniture as it ages.
Your wonderful solid oak bedroom furniture was designed and built to last. However, a few simple regular maintenance steps can really help to extend the life of your new furniture. It only needs to be carried out every three months or so, initially, but this will become less of a requirement eventually. A short time spent in basic maintenance will ensure that your wonderful new bedroom furniture will last and last...
Always follow the accompanying care documentation you received when you bought your solid Oak bedroom furniture.
If your furniture has a lacquered finish, then clean it once a week with a damp cloth, without soap, and follow to up by drying the bedroom oak furniture with a soft lint-free dry cloth.
If your furniture has a wax finish, make sure that you apply a top quality furniture wax to your solid oak bedroom furniture every six months. Try to remember that furniture polish, in cans, is not a wax. It may polish your furniture, but the best way to prolong the life of your oak bedroom furniture to apply wax.
Lastly, if your furniture has an oil finish, then apply a high quality boiled layer of Linseed or Danish Oil to your solid oak bedroom furniture. This will make sure that the Oak remains water proof. Oak is a natural product and is never water proof, so do make sure that you mop up any spills strait away to avoid discoloration. After the first year it is possible to reduce the frequency of adding oil to every six months, as routine maintenance.
Our solid oak bedroom furniture is made from sustainable American White Oak, and as we’ve mentioned Oak is a natural product and this implies that no two items of Oak furniture will age in the same way. This is all part of the natural character of the wood and should be expected.
If you need to thoroughly clean your solid oak bedroom furniture, then a solution such as Murphy’s Oil Soap is excellent for eliminating dust and wax. But do read the guidelines properly and always refinish with a relevant wax or lacquer.
A simple, useful tip for keeping drawers is to rub a candle on the runners to keep them opening easily. This is very simple, but very efficient.
Always use felt-backed or natural wooden coasters for placing beverages down on your traditional solid oak furniture.
Just one more point – when applying any type of finishing product to your wonderful piece of solid oak bedroom furniture, always test out an inconspicuous area first. And always check compatibility with previous products that may have been used on your furniture.
Then relax and relish the beauty of your amazing traditional solid oak furniture for years to come!
