Top 3 Woods For Building Furniture

Top 3 Woods For Building Furniture

When it comes to wood furniture, not all woods are created equal. After all, different types of woods offer varying levels of durability, and each comes with a unique style all its own. With that in mind, here are three of the top types of wood used in building wooden furniture in Northeast Ohio. Cherry Cherry is one of the most popular types of wood thanks to the dark, rich color it achieves over time. Cherry generally darkens over the course of a year before stabilizing at its final color. With an even grain, beautiful appearance, and resistance to dings and scratches, cherry is an excellent choice for wood furniture. Oak Oak is a popular selection for wood furniture, especially for cabinets and kitchen accessories. Oak is a hard, durable wood, allowing it to withstand frequent use. Both porous red oak and the less porous white oak can be used for wood furniture. The wide range of staining options makes it a versatile, stylish furniture option. Maple Maple’s incredible strength and unique, curly grain pattern makes it another popular furniture choice. As it is much lighter in color than oak or cherry, maple is often used to accent a darker-colored wood in furniture construction to create a unique, stylish...
Rocker or Glider?

Rocker or Glider?

Rockers and gliders are often one of the most sought-after pieces of furniture for families expecting children. After all, the gentle motions of rockers and gliders are perfect for soothing a baby, or even simply offering a comfortable seat to rest in after a long day. But how can you decide which option is best? Here are some tips from the Ohio wooden rockers and gliders experts at Swiss Valley Furniture. One of the first features to consider when choosing between rockers and gliders is their range of motion. Gliders slide forward and back with a gentler horizontal motion, as an option with our Gliders they can be built with a swivel, which makes it easier getting in and out of your seat. Rockers are able to provide a much stronger back and forth movement. Typically, your best bet is to try out each option for yourself to see which type of motion you prefer. In addition to the range of motion, the other chief characteristics buyers of rockers and gliders should consider are style and comfort. Mothers of newborns often spend a lot of time in these chairs, so it’s essential that the seat matches your expectations in both categories. While rockers offer a more classic look, you’ll probably need some extra padding for a comfortable seating option. Gliders, on the other hand, already come equipped with comfortable cushions. As you use range of motion, comfort, and style to guide your decision, you’ll be able to choose the right rocker or glider for your...
Outdoor Furniture: Why Choose Treated Pine

Outdoor Furniture: Why Choose Treated Pine

There are a wide variety of wood furniture products you can choose from when trying to find the right fit for your home. How do you go about finding outdoor furniture that not only looks great, but will be built to last? The Northeast Ohio outdoor furniture experts at Swiss Valley Furniture have a straightforward solution: treated pine. Pine is a popular choice for families looking for a less-expensive wood furniture product. Better yet, pine is easily repainted, allowing you to customize your furniture’s color when desired to match your changing preferences. Unfortunately, pine is more vulnerable to water damage and decay than other types of woods. Because of this, treated wooden outdoor furniture serves as the perfect solution for families who want to save money with pine while also having a long-lasting furniture option. Treated wooden outdoor furniture offers protection against water-related rot and decay, as well as damage caused by termites and other insects. Treated pine offers the great lower pricing and customization options of other pine products, while also giving you peace of mind knowing that your furniture will remain in top condition for years to...
Making Your Office Comfortable

Making Your Office Comfortable

Regardless of whether you work from home or in a corporate office, there’s no denying that having a comfortable office space is essential to staying happy and productive. As such, it goes without saying that having the right furniture can make all the difference. So what factors should you look for in handcrafted workspace products? For most people, it all comes down to the desk. There are several varieties of wooden desks available, and what works for one person may not necessarily be the right fit for you. One of the most important factors to consider is the height of your desk. It’s essential that your desk is at a comfortable height, otherwise, seating will be uncomfortable and you won’t be nearly as productive. Of course, there are other factors involved in selecting wood workspaces. Depending on your work environment, you may need a desk that has additional cabinet and storage space so you can easily access books and important documents. On the other hand, you may simply need a large, flat surface on which to conduct your work. A handcrafted workspace that matches your flat space and storage needs will allow you to be much more effective and comfortable at your work. Finally, choose a style that appeals to you! With several designs and finishes to choose from, Swiss Valley Furniture makes it easy to find wooden desks for your office that are both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing so you can be happy at...
Finding the Right Hardware For Your Furniture

Finding the Right Hardware For Your Furniture

When trying to achieve the perfect look for your home, it’s only natural that you would spend a lot of time focused on wood furniture, flooring, and other major household items. But there’s one furniture product that should never be overlooked: hardware. What is furniture hardware, you may ask? Hardware refers to the handles and knobs (which are also sometimes called pulls) that you find on wooden file cabinets, doors, and more. And while this furniture product can be easy to overlook, selecting the right hardware can ultimately play a major role in polishing your home’s overall appearance. You may be surprised to learn that there are several varieties of furniture pulls available, but this is because each offers a distinct style. For example, while there are plenty of standard metal options, antique-styled or glass door pulls can give your wood furniture a unique, classic look. When choosing hardware, it’s best to select an option that meshes well your existing cabinetry and furniture and will add to the overall appearance, rather than overshadow it. Contrast (such as selecting round hardware for your square furniture) can make your wood furniture stand out even more, but it’s important to remain consistent in your style choices. Doing so will create a top-notch look for your entire...
Choosing the Right Dining Set For Your Family

Choosing the Right Dining Set For Your Family

When it comes to choosing dining room furniture, the sheer number of options can seem overwhelming at times. Thankfully, while there are several types of dining sets you can select for your home, there are a few factors you can use to make the selection of this furniture set much easier.  Start by considering the size of the room, as well as the seating requirements for your dining area. Since every table should have enough space for everyone to both sit comfortably and be able to walk around it, different types of dining tables are better suited for different room layouts and seating arrangements.  For example, rectangular dining tables are a better fit for long, narrow rooms, and they usually provide more seating than a round table. On the other hand, round tables are great for fitting into smaller, tighter spaces—perfect for a young family living in a small starter home.  Once you’ve determined the space limitations for your dining area, you can begin to narrow your selection of dining chairs and tables by your stylistic preferences. There are a variety of chair legs, table legs, and even edges you can select from. And of course, different types of wood offer unique colors and textures. Choose a style that matches the existing decor in your home, and you’re ready to enjoy a great new dining...
