Buying Guide

Know your space:

*What items do you need in the room and how are you roughly going to lay the room out?

*Do you have clutter in the room currently? Why not go for items that have drawers instead of shelves.

*Are you wanting all the furniture to match or have one centre piece item that will demand attention?  View our Shop By Wood Type to see all the available ranges.

*Who is going to be using the furniture? If your house and lifestyle is very busy choose furniture that will not easy mark and requires low maintenance. Oak furniture is a perfect choice as it is hard wearing and does not need excessive cleaning.

*Glass mirrored and clear furniture look smaller in a room and give the illusion of a larger space

*Do you have unexpected guests that you have to accommodate? Items such as extending dining tables, nests of tables and sofa beds are perfect for entertaining at the last minute.

*Do you ever work from home? Consider a desk or even a hidden desk from our home office section.


Measuring up your space:

Choose the items you are needing and whilst shopping always look to see the dimensions. Once you have decided you want certain items re measure your room to double check.

Does the furniture come fully assembled? Insure that the item will fit though all of the doors and hallways to get to the required room. Most dining tables, console tables and beds are flat pack. Please see the assembly type in the product description of each item. If you ever have a question, feel free to contact us.

Leave enough space to walk around the room easily. If an item extends or is a set of two, insure that you have enough space for this feature.

How quickly do you need your furniture?

Are you moving into a house and need to furnish it ASAP or are you creating your dream interior and willing to wait to get that perfect item? Some of our items can be with you within 3 days whilst others take 10-20 working days and some brands take 3-5 weeks. It is always worth contacting us to see if we ca accommodate your needs.


Do you want to pay for it all now?

If you are furnishing a room or house things can get expensive. Rather than paying for everything now we have a finance option to suit your needs. See our finance information or call us if you have any questions.

How do you care for your new furniture?

Maintaining furniture is relatively simple. We have created a furniture care page specially to answer all of your questions to help preserve the longevity of your item.

What are the benefits of oak furniture?

The main advantages of oak furniture are:

Easy Maintenance – Oak furniture items are easy to maintain and highly resistance to warping.

Durability – Items can last for generations ensuring unrivalled value for money. This cannot be matched by flat pack furniture.

Visually Pleasing – The unique grain patterns ensure an attractive furniture item that offers great style and sophistication which is unlike any other item.


What is oak veneered furniture?

Veneered furniture just means that part of the item is constructed with different material rather than being 100% solid wood. Some people prefer the cheaper price tag this can be whilst others want their item to be all one type of wood. See the product description to see what the item is made out of and if it contains veneers. We have a post on our blog looking into the advantages of veneer here.
