It cannot be denied that wood is a timeless, perfect and beautiful material. However, much depends on the climatic conditions in which it ripens, how long it is dried and what its further processing looks like. As a wooden furniture manufacturer, we focus on craftsmanship and perfection. Did you know that wood takes 7 years to age? And none of our furniture is identical? Thanks to this, natural wood is solid and noble. Find out more about this.
Why is it said that wood is long-lived?
You've probably heard that wood is a long-lasting and timeless material. It's not just about appearance. Natural wood appears in many architectural styles, from minimalist, through loft, boho, English to modern arrangements. This is due to the fact that it is a renewable material. Fine sanding or regular oiling is enough to give the furniture a fresh and beautiful look. You can do all this work yourself at home. It is worth remembering that you should apply wood oil to the countertop or other surface at least once every 3 months. Always apply it according to the grain pattern for an even better effect. A wooden countertop covered with varnish also requires care, so it must be protected with a special agent after each cleaning. This translates into masking minor imperfections, e.g. subtle scratches. In order for wooden products to look exceptional for a long time, they must also be cleaned skillfully. It is worth using soft cloths and specialized agents for the surface. Do not apply them directly to the wood and always test their effectiveness in an inconspicuous place before you start general cleaning.
About the benefits of wooden furniture in your interior
Wooden furniture is not only designer, but also unique. Take into account that two identical products from our offer , placed next to each other, will never look identical. Differently arranged grains, subtle black knots or the appearance of shine make the furniture unique and special. A wooden desk in a Scandinavian style will be perfect for minimalist interiors. It is not only beautiful, but also functional. It can act as an ideal companion in the work corner, as well as a unique dressing table. In turn, a wooden bedside table complements a cozy and practically furnished bedroom.
Wooden elements and furniture also affect living conditions. What does it mean? Wood collects excess moisture wherever there is too much of it and at the same time releases it in dry rooms. This affects the comfort of household members as well as their health. It is also worth combining natural wood and a bit of greenery, e.g. by choosing an oak hygrometer with a reindeer clapboard . This is a perfect solution even for allergy sufferers. You can read more about this on our blog.
Interestingly, wood can absorb water in such a way that its weight doubles! Don't worry, this doesn't mean that your Scandinavian-style wooden furniture will suddenly be extremely heavy, because these are extreme cases.
How to care for wooden furniture at home?

Wooden furniture care in practice
The last few months have been a challenge for all of us, and home office has taken on a new meaning. You have certainly found out that it is worth choosing the perfect Scandinavian-style desk that will make your work more enjoyable and functional. Imagine, however, that while you are doing formalities at the computer, you put a hot mug of coffee or tea on a wooden counter . This may negatively affect its surface, so always use pads. What happens if you spill a glass of water on a wooden bedside table ? Remove excess immediately.
Finally, we would like to mention the most important thing. Wooden furniture in borcas is made of natural materials from local suppliers. Let us remember that both trees and other vegetation can cope without us, but can we do without them? Not necessarily. Let's take care of nature together!
