There aren’t many feelings better than refreshing your home with new furniture, but how can you protect it against the wear and tear of everyday life without sacrificing the aesthetic and comfort of the new piece? No matter how careful you are, something will eventually spill on it, get caught on it, or do something to tarnish its perfection. There are things you can do to help protect against this, though:
For a hard surface like wood, a furniture polish or wax can add a layer of protection against water-rings or other damage, much like wax protects a car’s paint against the elements. Some brands of furniture come available with optional protection packages, which may be worth it depending on how messy your family tends to be. If you purchase furniture without any added protection, there are many professional grade products available for any application.
Blankets and Fitted Covers
If your family includes small children or pets, using a fitted cover or blankets may be your best bet against wear. They protect well against abrasion, and if something is spilled on it, you can simply remove it and throw it in the washing machine, keeping your furniture looking pristine.
Investing in an optional warranty is often a great idea, regardless of how careful you think you’ll be with your new furniture. Some liquids will never totally come out of upholstery, and deep scratches or cracks in wood cannot be easily remedied.
