Wood furniture makes a great addition to your home because of its sturdiness, longevity, and natural beauty. At Woodcraft Furniture, we have more than 100 stains, paints, glazes, and distressing treatments to help your perfect piece of unfinished wood furniture come to life. Today’s blog from Woodcraft Furniture explains how wood stains beautify unfinished wood furniture like no other finish can.
Enhances the Wood Grain
Stain brings out the beauty of the natural wood grain because wood has natural porosity. The hue seeps into wood once our manufacturers brush it on. Stain, unlike some paints, isn’t completely opaque. Therefore, the wood grain comes through on unfinished wood furniture.
More porous parts of the wood might need multiple layers of stain. Putting more stain on wood creates contrasting color patterns within a single piece, in addition to making layers. Craftspeople finish off a stained piece with urethane to protect the color and prevent damage to wood. In this way, unfinished wood furniture lasts much longer with stain and urethane.
Stains come in many colors to enhance unfinished wood furniture. Consider a dark chocolate or mahogany hue to contrast lighter hues in your home. Cherry adds a dark red color for a classic touch. Light brown colors work well with neutral tones such as beige, navy blue, and black.
Protects Your Furniture
Unfinished wood furniture needs protection from the elements, sunlight, spills, nicks, and dings. The stain seeps into wood to add color, but it also keeps the wood fibers from deteriorating. A layer of urethane or varnish makes the stain layer last a lifetime, helps prevent water damage, and keeps the original color intact because urethane, varnish, and shellac are completely clear.
