Oak Dining Room Furniture - Frequently Asked Questions

Is oak a good wood for a dining table?

Oakdining tables are perfect for gathering friends and family round for food, drinks, and games. Its innate strength allows it to resist scratches, dents, and other damage, making it ideal for facing various challenges in a busy household. The wood is known for its resistance to moisture, reducing the risk of warping or cracking over time, which is particularly important in a dining setting where accidental spills may happen. Keep your oak table looking its best for years to come with minima maintenance.

Beyond its durability, oak has a timeless aesthetic. The wood's natural grain patterns and warm tones adapts seamlessly to many different interior styles. Oak's inherent beauty lies in its natural grain patterns and warm tones so whether your interior leans towards a classic, rustic, modern, or even eclectic aesthetic, an oak dining table can seamlessly integrate into the overall design scheme. Its neutral tones make it easy to pair with different colour palettes and textures, allowing for creative freedom in decorating the surrounding space.

What colours go with oak dining furniture?

Oak dining furniture can be paired with a wide range of colour palettes to create different aesthetic effects. The natural tones of oak, with its warm and earthy qualities, provide a neutral base that complements various colour schemes.

Neutral colours such as whites, creams, and beiges create a timeless and elegant look when combined with oak. These light hues enhance the warm undertones of the wood, providing a clean and classic appearance. Earthy colours like browns, greens, and soft blues harmonise with oak's natural warmth to create a cohesive and organic feel, connecting the dining space with nature-inspired elements. From light grey to charcoal, oak contrasts beautifully with grey or, for a more dramatic look, consider contrasting oak with bold colours. Deep colours such as navy blue or even black create a striking balance with the warm oak tones, while warm reds and oranges can complement the natural hues of oak. These energetic colours create a lively and welcoming environment, especially in spaces with plenty of natural light. Soft pastel shades like blush pink, mint green, or light lavender can introduce a sense of calm and serenity, working particularly well when creating a more delicate and feminine ambiance.

Experiment with different colours through accessories, upholstery, or wall paint to find the perfect balance and remember to consider the overall style you want to achieve.

What do you finish an oak dining table with?

When you have your new dining table in your home, you’ll want to finish it with beautiful accessories to complete your look. Dressing your oak dining table with tablecloths, table runners, or placemats can add texture and colour. Consider seasonal or themed linens to change the look throughout the year. A well-chosen centrepiece can be a focal point on your dining table, whether that’s a vase of fresh flowers, a bowl of fruit, a collection of candles, or even a decorative sculpture. Ensure that the scale of the centrepiece is appropriate for the size of the table and that people sat either side of the table can still see each other. Choose candle holders that complement the style of the table and the overall décor and be mindful of scented candles – ensure their fragrance doesn't overwhelm the dining experience.

Choose a beautiful dinnerware set with plates, bowls, and serving dishes that coordinate with the colour and style of the oak. This could include ceramic, stoneware, or even vintage pieces for an eclectic touch. Displaying glassware on the table not only serves a functional purpose but also adds a reflective element. Consider using glassware in various shapes and sizes to create visual interest.
