Oak is a really strong and durable wood for your bathroom, and unlike other, cheaper woods it won't warp or collect damp as a result of the extra moisture in the room. The wood is thick and hard wearing and won't accumulate rot or lose its colour and finish like others and you can be guaranteed that when you put it there it will look stunning and last a life time.
Bathroom furniture made of oak comes in many different forms, and can create a wide range of storage options such as medicine cabinets or cupboards for your towels and toiletries whilst creating a functional yet very attractive addition to a room that can all too often get over looked when it comes to decorating. This is a shame because having a nice relaxing soak in the bath is one of life's simple pleasures and it's always nice when you have a comfortable and well furnished room to do so in. This means it can be really important to find good quality furniture that will keep your bathroom looking stunning for a good long time.
It doesn't just have to be cupboards and shelves that are made of oak, however, and you'll find a lovely range of oak laundry baskets that will keep your dirty laundry contained in a sealed basket that won't allow air and damp to get to them. Many of these baskets can be fitted with a linen basket or a bag to make it easier to remove the clothes when you need to and they come in a range of lovely styles which means that dirty laundry doesn't have to be an eyesore.
Oak comes in many different stains and colours, and this can really enhance the overall appeal of your bathroom. Darkened wood would give it a very regal and classy look which would make your bathroom a sophisticated little haven in your house, whereas softer stained oak would give it a comfortable country feel. This way you can match the decor of your bathroom to that of the rest of your house- even if it's done very subtly- because it's terrible to work so hard on making the rest of your house conform to a certain style only to be stuck when it comes to the bathroom. As oak is so timeless it fits in with any style of design.
