Flat Pack Frustration
Up and down the country, an all too familiar scene has played out this Bank Holiday weekend. Strewn out across the floor, a confusing array of screws, spanners, nuts and bolts. Pieces of manufactured board are arranged in seemingly random piles. At the heart of the chaos, someone is holding a piece of paper upside down, scratching his or her head in utter bewilderment.
Chances are, you’ve seen this one before. You’ve probably been the lead actor. For many people the Bank Holiday means only one thing. Flatpack frustration.
Where does that last screw go?
If you’ve had to spend an afternoon building your own furniture, you’ll know it isn’t always an easy task. Section A never slots into section C, screw type 3 always looks like screw type 4, and there’s always one of them missing. Of course, there is an answer, and that’s some solid wood furniture from House of Oak.
At House Of Oak we don’t believe in MDF and we’re not big fans of chipboard. We much prefer furniture made from real wood. The benefits of real wood over manufactured boards are huge. A good piece of solid wood furniture can last for years, even being passed down to future generations. Pieces like this Milano Oak Low Unit are modern enough too look stylish, but will remain fashionable for many years to come.
Of course, some of our solid oak furniture is just so big we couldn’t deliver it in one piece, we wouldn't get through the door. Don’t worry though, with our local delivery service we’ll carry it into the room you desire, and build it for you, all for free.
