  • How to use Felt Pads for your Oak Furniture

    How To Use Felt Pads for your Oak Furniture

    As beautiful as Oak Furniture is, sometimes it can be quite high maintenance. One of the major problems is how it sits on a hardwood floor. Depending on the floor that you have, it can either decide to slide and not be very stable, or can cause damage to the floor when trying to the move the product. Both of these can cause headaches in the years to come, causing issues with your floor and furniture.

    However this can be easily avoided with the simple use of felt pads, which are a perfect solution to this problem, and don't cost a lot of money either.


    Buying the felt pads

    When buying the felt pads you want to make sure that you're getting some decent ones as these will serve better in the long run, they may be more expensive-but not too much. Also make sure you stock up on these felt pads, as they can be used on any piece of furniture saving you a lot of time and money. The best thing to do is to buy in bulk, giving you that extra room if you may lose one.


    Right size and where?

    You can get Felt Pads in all shapes and sizes, so make sure you get the right size for you and the products you want to protect. You can get them from any good hardware store, however getting them from the store you got your furniture from ensures they're the best for those products.


    Before the Fit

    If you're going to be applying this to furniture that will be moved quite often, then you may need to help the felt pad out. To do this you need to get some stronger adhesive like construction adhesive, and put a blob of this on top of the back of the felt pad. To do this peel the off the strip at the back off the pad, and apply the adhesive on top.


    Fitting the Felt

    Once you've got the gear the next step is really easy. Simply peel off the strip at the back of the felt pad, revealing the adhesive and attach it to one of the corners/legs of the product. Once that's on and working, repeat for all of the corners/legs so it's all protected.


    Let it set

    This is especially important if you've used the additional adhesive as you need to let it set, so it's best to leave it for a couple of hours. So sit back and put a film on while you wait! This will ensure when you move the piece of furniture it won't slip and slide off and scratch the hardwood floor.


    Put them to the test

    Now that's all done it's time to invite your friends and put the products to the test, and you can sure that your furniture won't be scratching your hardwood floor.

  • The Kuba Oak Collection!

    The Oak Kuba Collection!

    Here at Oak Furniture King, the Kuba Collection is by far the most revered, and there's no surprise why. The Kuba collection has such a distinguished look, from it's chunky exterior giving it that robustness, to the sleek feel of it. There's not much it doesn't have.

    The Kuba Oak Collection spreads across so many spectrum's from Oak Dining Sets to Display Cabinets, and they all stay consistent to the stand out style.

    The Kuba Collection is the oldest at Oak Furniture King, becoming a staple of our collections. This is due to the sheer love that a lot of people have for this style of furniture. It carries a certain Modern look around, due to the lightness of the oak it works with a lot more homes.

    Dining Sets

    Kuba's Dining Sets are a separate beast as it works with so many different Dining Chairs, whether they are Fabric, Leather or Oak. This is down to the chunkiness of the Dining Table, there's something that the chairs play off so well. Regardless of the stunning beauty of the Kuba Dining Set, it still stays at a reasonable price.

    Display Cabinets

    The Kuba display cabinet is the second most cheapest, but personally it's possibly the most charismatic. Again with it's modern tone it lights up a room. As well as adding to the room aesthetically, it also gives you storage space. You can store anything from your favourite ornaments to films, it's all down to you.

    TV Cabinets

    Finally the TV Cabinets is where the Solid Oak Kuba Collection really shines! Once again not only offering style but it also offers so much space! On top of this the Kuba Cabinets are by far the cheapest within this section!

    Rasing The Rings - Making Our House a Home | The Best Ways To Use Oak

    As much as I love ‘clean’ furniture at the moment, there’s still that draw to wooden pieces. There’s something about all kinds of wood that have timeless appeal; not forgetting that they’re incredibly robust, are usually well made and are seen as investment pieces. They’re the things around the house that will have character ingrained upon them by you and the ones that live in your home – most probably the kids with their pens. One of my favourite types of wood is oak. Oak is incredibly popular and isn’t showing signs of going out of fashion any time soon. It’s perfect for around the house as it’s solid and hard wearing. It’s particularly well known for having stunning open wood grain markings and it comes in two shades; white oak, which is quite light and grey/brown in colour or there’s red oak which has a reddish tint. Either way, there’s a place in everyone’s home for some good, solid, oak wood furniture. Continue Reading

    Rachel Bustin - Oak Furniture Wishlist for a New Home

    Moving into a new home was a very special time for us. We finally had worked our socks off to afford a gorgeous 3 bed detached house with a rather large garden. Much better than the 3 storey town house built into a hill we moved from. Anyway we love proper wood furniture, the sturdy robust type that will last forever and worth spending those extra pennies on.I love a blank room to plan from, this is what one end of the living room looked like before the movers arrived. It doesn’t look like that now of course – it’s missing baby girl’s toys! But you have an idea of the space. Continue Reading.

  • The Ultimate Guide to Oak Dining Table Sets

    Oak Dining Table Sets

    Since the 14th Century Oak Dining Table Sets have been a cornerstone to the Dining experience. Through time they've evolved from simply being a place to eat at, to a feature piece for the whole room. Time has moved on developing a vast range of Oak Dining Tables to choose from, making it difficult to find the perfect Dining Set!

    Breaking it Down

    With there being so many ways to categorise an Oak Table, it's best to just look at the key areas. When is it better to have an extending Table? Which sort of Style goes with which home? Which colour Dining Chairs work with which table? Is Oak the only way to go?

    Solid Oak Dining Table Sets Solid Oak Dining Table Sets

    To Extend or Not to Extend

    An extending Oak dining Table can give that extra bit of room. If you have guests coming round? extend it. Need more room? extend it. Too much food on the table? extend it. Having the option to do this makes the extending dining table so much more appealing. Also even though the table is extendable, it doesn't lose any quality! So it's a win win situation! So if the option is there to get an extending dining table, do it.

    Which Style you should be going for?

    This is a very subjective question as it always comes down to personal taste really, however this may help steer that decision. With so many collections of Oak Dining Sets, you need to get the right one! If you're looking for that more rustic classic look then the French Chateau or the Cotswold Collections are perfect. With that darker finish, it has a really warm look to it and gives you a hint of days from yesteryear.

    On the other hand, the Seattle, Vermont and Hampton Dining Sets bring that Modern look. With a much more brighter finish, it has a light look to it that could very easily light up a dining room.

    If you lie somewhere in the middle, finding you would like a taste of both Richmond and Kuba are the types to be looking at. They have a very mild look to them, and blend with that beige/cream style of a modern home. So there's something for everyone after all.

    Which colour Dining Chairs?

    Dining Chairs are always awkward to choose, purely down to the amount of choice there is! A darker table, Brown Leather Dining Chairs always seem to work best as they don't completely dull it down, and compliment it perfectly. For a lighter Dining Table, Ivory Leather Dining Chairs are perfect, as they enhance the brightness of the dining table really blending in with the set. For those mid-brown coloured dining tables, the Black Leather Dining Chairs work a dream.

    Is Oak the only way to go?

    In a short answer No. There's a vast amount of Dining Tables out there, and I suppose you don't want to pigeon hole yourself. However if you want quality and longevity, then yes Oak is the only way to go. The Oak dining table has the sturdiness to deal with 20 plates at once.The Oak Dining Table has the style to become a talking in any room of your house. It has the quality to survive a knock on the side. Most importantly it has the longevity to last a long time. Yes the Oak Dining Table Set will cost you more than your average dining set, but you're investing in this Dining Set. So do yourself a favour and treat yourself today.
