Is solid oak bathroom furniture a good idea?

Good afternoon, I need some bathroom furniture ideas, or better I need some tips and advice. I would like to buy some furniture for one my bathrooms: it has got floor and walls with blue tiles and I was thinking of buying solid oak furniture. I like wood and I think that a solid oak vanity would be great. Anyway, I'm afraid that wood may suffer from the humidity of the bathroom. What do you think about it?

Good choice! I love wooden furniture, especially in the bathroom (I attached some nioce pictures that give you some good ideas). Solid oak is one of the most durable and resistant types of wood, and even if your furniture will probably be expensive, I would say that it will resist for centuries. So, in my opinion it is a good investment. Don't be afraid of humidity: it will resist, provided that you take care of your wood and nourish it with some oil, every now and then.

I have a solid oak cabinet in my bathroom. I loved it when I bought it but after a couple of years I was so disappointed since the colour of wood had completely changed because of the light. As a matter of fact oakwood is sensible to light. So, if you have a large window in your bathroom, make sure that the light doesn’t hit directly the furniture. Moreover, I decided to move it to another room and it was such a hard job because this type of oak is among the heaviest. Today, I have a nice wood-effect laminate vanity and I'm highly satisfied.

Provided that solid oak is very resistant, it is still wood, therefore sensible to moisture! Moisture, and the bathroom is full of it, spoils the wood grain. Consequently, if you really like wooden furniture in your bathroom, pay attention since you will have to wipe all spills from oak as you notice them on wood. Periodically, put some protective spray or oil (also the type used for wooden floors is OK) since it will create a protective layer against moisture.

Oak furniture are worth investing, because they are very durable and comparatively oak wood is more sturdier than others. Moreover Oak has beautiful grains as well. All these features make it a more popular choice among the buyers.
