When it comes to building closets, one of the best materials in terms of strength, looks and longevity is undoubtedly American oak. This gorgeous hardwood features a densely packed grain which gives it a wonderful weight and makes it naturally resistant to damage, including common sources of wood damage such as moisture, fungal spores and insects. Caring for your oak closets and keeping them looking their best only takes minimal care and effort - as we do with all of our oak storage units, we recommend gently wiping down the wooden surfaces with a soft clean cloth, and using polish which is suitable for treated wood. Be sure to test your polish in an inconspicuous spot first before using more extensively on your oak closet.
Closets as we know them started becoming popular in the 19th Century, as they became more affordable and were no longer reserved for nobles and the aristocracy. It was also considered a stylish item of furniture, found in all the most fashionable homes. The basic design of closets has not changed too much over the years, although different styles have come and gone with the times. Our range of oak closets are designed with classic detailing and timeless looks so they will complement both traditional and contemporary bedrooms and dressing rooms.
Choosing A New Oak Closet For Your Bedroom
Your new oak closet should blend well with your existing furniture and decor. We finish our oak with an oiled wax which gives it a beautiful mid tone which is very flattering. Alternatively, our wardrobes are also available with a soft cream painted finish which can really uplift your interiors. In terms of closet sizes we offer, they are available in either a double or triple wardrobe size. As a rough guide, the double are ideal for one person with an extensive clothing collection or two people with a smaller number of items. The triple wardrobe is the largest size of oak closet that we offer and is perfect for storing larger clothing collections. The double size closets feature a single pull out drawer at the bottom, whereas the triple size have two drawers.
