Care & Maintenance


Here are a few valuable tips that could help you maintain your furniture better.

 Dust it well: A sparkling piece of furniture makes for a sparkling room. And the right amount of dusting helps in doing so. Make sure you use a soft, dry cotton cloth to wipe any dust off. If you could clean your sofas, tables, etc. on a bi-monthly basis, then there’s nothing like it.

 Minimal exposure to sunlight: Be careful about exposing wooden furniture to sunlight for prolonged time periods. It results in a phenomenon called ‘spotting’ where bright and dark spots appear across the cross-section. On a wooden table, you could use a tablecloth to effectively mitigate its effect.

 Be mindful of temperature: Avoid using extremely hot and cold objects on wooden furniture for better maintenance. They tend to leave an impression that may distort the original texture of the surface. Make sure the exposure is limited to permissible time intervals and not for too long.

 Let it age with grace: Furniture ages with time and you need to let it age gracefully. Just like wine, it may acquire new character in its twilight years. Some wood may lighten and some may darken with the passage of time. So when you’re buying any wooden furniture the next time be very mindful of its aging habits.

 Keep sharp objects at bay: You should be very careful about not letting sharp objects too close to wooden furniture pieces. A scratch never looks good. Never. 

 Oil and Wax Regularly: Oiling and waxing wood is highly recommended since it gives it a shiny varnish to it. Also,   it adds a protective layer, a coating on the surface thereby enlivening its appearance. If you could oil and wax your wooden units once in three months, it’ll be wonderful.
