Light Wood Nightstand

The best woods to consider when looking for a light wood nightstand

Some of the best woods to consider for a light wood nightstand include birch, maple, and poplar.

There are many different woods to consider when looking for a light wood nightstand. Some of our favorites include beech, oak, and maple. Each has its own unique properties that make it a good choice for a light wood nightstands.

Beech is a popular choice for furniture because it is strong and durable. It also has a smooth, tight grain that makes it easy to clean. It has a slight reddish-warm hue and is often found in European furniture. In fact, beech is often used in the making of cabinetry, cooking utensils, tool handles, and even sports equipment.

Beech is also a relatively hard wood, with a Janka hardness rating of about 1300. This makes it resistant to dents and scratches, and it is often used in applications where it will be subjected to wear and tear.

 Modern Bedside Table White Oak

White Oak is another strong and durable wood that has become one of the more popular woods in the last few years. While it is noticeably darker than Beech, White Oak has beautiful light brown and grey tones that give it a very neutral, yet modern look. The grain pattern is also far more noticeable when compared to beech or even Maple. It's a different look, but we absolutely love it.

White Oak also has a Janka hardness rating of about 1360, which slightly harder than Beech.

At SMPL, white oak has become by far the most popular wood of choice, especially for items such as our Bedside Table, Modern Nightstand, and of course our Minimalist Dining Table.

Maple Light Wood

Maple is a classic wood choice for furniture. It has a smooth, satiny texture and its pale whiteish color is versatile enough to blend in with any home décor. Maple also has excellent strength and stability and is a great choice for lighter woods.

Maple is also a relatively hard wood, with a Janka hardness rating of about 1450, which is slightly harder than White Oak. It's often used in products such as cutting boards because of its extreme hardness. We love Maple because of its combination of strength, light color, and appearance.
