When picking out a nightstand, there are many things to consider including: height, design, and room décor. Oak has been one of the most popular woods of choice for North American and European-style furniture since the mid-century. The woodgrain has a natural rustic beauty that lends itself well to varnish or a light stain. You may feel drawn to oak furniture for nostalgic reasons – you probably grew up with at least a couple of pieces in your home. It is one of the most durable woods, and when cared for correctly, can be passed down for generations.
Oak has quite a few advantages as a nightstand material:
Red and white oak have such a beautiful grain that they are also very popular as a wood veneer, cut and fitted to the outside of non-oak furniture. White oak is only slightly more expensive than pine, historically the most popular furniture material. Red Oak, because of its grain, is often used for hardwood flooring. As a classic material for hardwood floors, oak is a natural choice for durable nightstands. Even though oak furniture is on average more expensive than pine, remember your piece is likely to turn into a family heirloom, passed down because of its timeless style and innate strength.
