Quality hardwood furniture is an investment that can easily last a lifetime and beyond with the right care. Here’s a look at what’s available and how to keep it looking great for a good long time.
The beauty and longevity of solid hardwood furniture are undeniable. Each piece is naturally unique and will only improve in character with age. You can get furniture in every style, from traditional to modern, in solid natural oak, rustic oak, mango, and painted acacia.
How to handle hardwood
Following a few do’s and don’ts can help keep your hardwood furniture looking beautiful for years to come.
Do treat your furniture with wax polish immediately upon receipt and then every three months to protect and nourish the wood. Blot up spills immediately with a soft, slightly damp cloth. Use coasters, place mats and tablecloths to protect furniture during use.
Don’t place furniture in direct sunlight, which can fade the finish, or place furniture next to heating or air-conditioning vents. Don’t use household cleaning products, solvents or cleaners intended for materials other than hardwood furniture, as they may damage the finish.
