2. Which oils and wood are used to produce my product?

We only use sustainable woods from European forestry to manufacture your product. We mostly use BIOFA quality oils for many of our furniture pieces.

This is also not a problem. We only use oil that fulfils the standard EN 71, part 3. This is synonymous with the safety of children's toys.

Can I also order a back wall for a room divider?

A rear wall for our room dividers can of course also be ordered. If you select the "Room divider" option in the configurator, the base and the fronts of your item are mirrored so that the room divider is identical from both sides.

Should I choose a lacquered or oiled table?

Whether you choose a lacquered or oiled table is of course up to you. Both treatment options have their advantages: A lacquered surface is easier to clean and is particularly suitable if the item is to be used primarily as a dining table, for example. An oiled surface requires a little more aftercare but is also durable and reliable and is often used for coffee tables. An overview of our tables can be found here.

  • Wardrobes and cabinets

Do I have to include handles for my doors?

We advise against choosing our "push-to-open" technology for your wardrobe doors, as the mechanism must be activated precisely at the trigger point and this can be problematic with such large surface areas. However, should you wish to choose the variant, please do not hesitate to contact us. Alternatively, there are several quality handle variants to choose from.

Which interior features are possible?

For our wardrobes, we can offer you several additional interior features and fittings to make your storage work for you. Garment lifts, clothes rails, and interior drawers can help you to keep things tidy and to stay organized. You can select these in Step 6 of the wardrobe configurator. You can select one interior feature for each compartment (except interior drawers), and our special furniture consultants will be happy to help you with your planning.

Does Pickawood offer built-in cupboards?

We do not offer built-in cupboards in the classic sense. However, we use blind strips for wardrobes that are to be installed in specific spaces which gives the impression of a built-in wardrobe and provides a neat, organized finish. Our specialist furniture consultants will be happy to provide more information and advice to help you with your design.

Does Pickawood offer corner cabinets?

We can also offer you corner cabinets. Unfortunately, this option cannot yet be selected in the configurator. For a corner cabinet, you will need to create two configurations, which will then be constructed later as a corner cabinet.

How do I find the right measurements for my piece of furniture?

It is also essential to allow enough distance to the walls on either side of your product to be able to move the furniture piece easily into place.
