Oak window boards are a natural choice for window sills, as they offer an ambiance of warmth and friendliness. This versatile wood is native to Europe and is surprisingly easy to work with. Its warm yellow color and interesting grain make it a popular choice for interior designers. Oak is also relatively heavy, yet elastic, which makes it less likely to warp or crack. This characteristic makes oak a good choice for window sills, which can be anywhere from 24 to 400 mm wide.
