Solid Oak FAQs

Oak doors are extremely durable, but can benefit from the occasional cleaning. We recommend using a clean, dry cloth to wipe down the door. This should remove light stains and dust. Follow the direction of the wood’s natural grain.

Wipe the door again with warm, clean water. Wring your cloth out before wiping the door. Excess water may cause the wood to warp. If needed, use a small amount of washing up liquid. Stubborn stains can be removed with a few drops of olive oil and white vinegar. Make sure to wipe the door down again with a dry cloth once any stains have been removed.

Oak is relatively porous and can stain easily. Varnish is great for maintaining oak furniture. We recommend Osmo Door Oil, which is available to purchase on our website. Ideal for veneered doors, Osmo Door Oil provides a clear satin finish and is resistant to both water and dirt. No sanding is necessary for future applications.

Paint is a great way to give your oak furniture a fresh new look! Before you start painting, clean your furniture, preferably with a product capable of removing grease. Grease can prevent paint from sticking. Ensure that the product is safe to use on oak.

Remove hinges, drawers and knobs. Number each piece to save time later. Thoroughly sand your furniture to remove any gloss. Fill any nicks with a wood filler. Use a primer prior to painting. Oil based and latex enamel paints are perfect for use on wood furniture. When using oil-based paints, use a natural-bristle brush. For latex paints, use a synthetic bristle brush.
