To give it that shiny exterior, you can use linseed or lemon oil to polish the surface. Or buy furniture products that are specially made for oak. Just stay clear of those made of harsh chemicals as they could leave stains. Organic would be a much better choice. Now, there are touch up kits which you can also buy from stores that’s specifically made to help you keep your colored oak tables and chairs in tip top shape. But you have to read the instructions carefully before you apply so you do not risk damaging the exterior. It would also be best if you adapt a schedule for polishing your oak fixtures so they’d be easier to maintain.
Don’t place your oak sideboard or cabinet in direct exposure to the sun or nearby radiators. The heat may cause the structure of the wood to wear down. Moreover, it might also influence its radiance. If you can’t avoid placing it away from windows, make sure to cover it with a mantle so that heat contact will be minimized.
Oak furniture like an oak sideboard can fetch for anywhere from $200 to $5000. But given their resilience, any homeowner would find it a good investment to splurge on oak home wares. However, with poor maintenance, the lifetime expectation for these kinds of fixtures may dwindle down to a few years and even just a few months. It would be such a shame to have to waste that much money and not be able to maximize the gratification experienced. Don’t let other people’s mistakes be your own when buying oak tables and chairs. Here are some tips I can give you regarding upkeep and cleaning.
The material used to craft it: Ensure before buying that the material used to craft your storage box for cups, cutlery, etc. is durable enough. The most trusted sideboards and cabinets in India are made from high-quality solid wood. They offer more durability, and the scratches and bumps on the storage unit are more easily sanded and painted over. So go for the ones made from solid wood. If you're looking to save money, then cabinets produced from pine will go best, but the durability of the furniture may get affected.
