A Guide to Stained Wood Furniture

When it comes to solid wood furniture, nothing makes it pop more than wood stain. There are many different coloured stains that can be applied to your wooden furniture; the colour you choose simply depends on your own personal preferences.

Below we have provided a useful guide to help explain what wood stain is, the benefits of wood stain, and most importantly…what colours of wood stain we can apply to your bespoke wooden furniture.

What is Wood Stain?

Stained Wood Furniture

Wood stain is a product designed to change the colour and appearance of wood. There are many specific wood stain products on the market, however, a wood stain can be any wood oil, wax, varnish, or preservative which is used to treat and colour the exterior of the wood.

Unlike paint, wood stain allows the original features of the wood to shine through, ensuring you keep the character and charm of the wood intact.

The Advantages of Stained Wood Furniture

Choosing wood-stained furniture offers a range of benefits.

  1. Solid wood is a naturally beautiful, natural material; however, over time it can become worn and loose its charm. By staining the wood you can easily restore a beautiful piece of furniture and give it a new lease of life.
  2. Wood stain doesn’t add or take away too much from the furniture. It simply highlights the original wood pattern and texture, helping to bring out its character, without losing any of its original charm.
  3. Wood stain allows you to easily colour match new furniture to your existing furniture, or vice versa. So, if you’re looking to create a harmonious look across your wooden furniture, then wood stains are here to help.
