You don’t change your furniture often, and since furniture is quite expensive, you want it to last as long as possible. With a little care you can extend the life of your furniture, without having to replace soon and saving big bucks too, over the years. Check out a few cost-effective tips which can help to extend your furniture’s life.
Stain proof it
Stain proofing your couch fabric and cushions will keep them looking fresh and new for a considerable amount of time. For just a few hundred bucks, you can save your thousands’ of dollars costing couch, chair or ottoman. The other benefit of stain proofing is that you’ll get a guarantee of replacement if the stain isn’t removed.
Simple does it
If you’re one of those people who change their furniture to be on trend, and not because of any damage or stains, then be sure to choose a style which has simple lines and patterns, like this four poster bed. Classic furniture items look graceful and elegant and are always in style. As for sofas and couches, you can just choose accent cushion covers, pillows or blankets which reflect the style of that particular season or year.
Never eat on the couch
Many of us have the habit of eating on the sofa while watching our favorite TV shows or movies. But this is definitely not the place to eat your food. Inevitably, you or your friends and family would drop something on the sofa or cushions, which will have to be cleaned, leading to the fabrics of your sofa and cushions fading soon.
Keep pets away
You love your pets but their hair, especially cat hair is difficult to get out of sofa fabric, so if your pet is allowed to sit on your furniture, don’t expect it to last that long. Not only, hair, but their odor also gets into the furniture which is difficult to remove.
Cleaning regularly will make your furniture last much longer. A leather sofa needs to be treated from time to time so that it doesn’t crack or split. And vacuuming cloth cushions will keep them clean and extend their life.
Furniture can last a long time with a little care and maintenance. Just by following these simple tips, you can extend the life of your furniture and save a ton of money too!
