Get an Oak Children’s Chair for Its Classic Look and Solid Heft
Oak furniture adds warmth to living spaces. Its natural wood grain, color, and finish is an ideal match for traditional decor. For best aesthetic results, choose oak for rooms filled with other wood furnishings. Some people prefer the natural rough texture of this wood, but it’s best to choose chairs with smooth finishes for young children to avoid splinter injuries.

Oak is a universal symbol of strength and endurance. It’s a hard-wearing wood capable of withstanding kids’ roughhousing and daily use. As a hardwood, oak produces relatively heavy furniture. Its solid heft ensures kids’ seats are stable and hard to tip over.

How to Pick the Right Kid-Sized Oak Chairs
First, consider different chair designs. A simple design with a solid back is quite common. For a unique, classic look, opt for a ladder-back chair. This has a back made of horizontal slats or spindles between two uprights. The ladder-like structure serves as back support. One advantage of this style is that it improves airflow to the seat occupant and minimizes sweating.

Seat dimension is another key factor to note when shopping for kids’ wooden chairs. Consider seat width and length to determine that the seating area is big enough. However, seat height is the most important measurement to know when picking kids’ seating. To encourage healthy sitting posture, select chairs with seats that are 12 to 14 inches high for toddlers and kindergartners. Grade school kids require units with 14- to 16-inch seat heights.

What Is the Difference Between White and Red Oak Children’s Chairs?
Red and white oak are two varieties of the same hardwood. Red oak has a distinct reddish or pinkish tint to its brown color while white oak’s color is closer to the grey end of brown. White oak furniture is darker and has a straighter grain and smoother finish. The rougher finish of the red variety hides imperfections, scratches, and dents.

Can You Use Kids’ Oak Chairs Outdoors?
No. While white oak is water-resistant, the red type is porous and has an open grain. It absorbs water easily and is susceptible to rot and fungal growth. Leaving kids’ wooden chairs in direct sunlight can also cause them to shrink and lose some of their structural rigidity. While manufacturers seal wood products with water-repellent and other types of protective coats, these wear down with time.

Do Kids’ Oak Chairs Come Pre-Assembled?
Yes. Most manufacturers ship hardwood furniture already assembled because it may be difficult to assemble at home. Unlike fiberboard and other types of manufactured wood, oak is quite heavy and requires specialized construction techniques.
