5 reasons why you should buy an oak shelf this February
by Freddie Armstrong
February is one of the best times of year to purchase oak shelves. Why? Here are just 5 of the reasons you should be buying an oak floating shelf before the weather starts to heat up…
1) Cold, dark days are perfect for doing DIY
February can feel a little…lacklustre. With the evenings still dark and the weather still wintery, there’s no better time to get some jobs done around the house.
Installing a display of oak floating shelves is better done on a cold, drizzly day, than a hot summer’s day, when you just want to be lounging around outside with a cold beer.
2) Add a pop of colour to your home with an oak floating shelf display
As we head towards spring and the flowers come into bloom, our homes can feel a little dull compared to the vibrant springtime display happening outside.
Use an oak floating shelf to create a display of daffodils and tulips to liven up your living room. Intersperse vases of flowers with your favourite family photos to make a really personal oak shelf display.
3) Use solid oak shelves to start your spring clean early
Making a display on your wall using solid oak floating shelves doesn’t just look great, it is also a really sneaky way to free-up additional space elsewhere in your home.
Oak floating shelves are the ideal place to display your favourite books, family photos and trinkets.
The extra storage space you’ll gain by using normally-unusable vertical wall space, can help the rest of your home feel less cluttered, making installing oak shelves the ideal start to a spring clean.
4) Create extra storage in your kitchen with oak shelves
Use the relative quietness of February to conduct a kitchen clear out. The rule is, if you haven’t used it in the last 12 months, you’re probably never going to use it, so it’s time to get rid of it (ideally by giving whatever ‘it’ is to a charity shop).
No matter how many rarely-used kitchen gadgets we get rid of, many of us still have kitchen cupboards which we struggle to keep closed. Installing an oak floating shelf in your kitchen creates more surface space to store your stuff.
Piles of plates and neat rows of glasses all look amazing on an oak floating shelf. Maximise space by installing hooks to hang mugs on the underneath of the oak wall shelf.
5) Why wait to buy your oak floating shelf?
Finally, February is the best time to buy one of our solid oak shelves because February is now. And if you haven’t got an oak floating shelf yet, why wait any longer?
