As a result of this, more and more people are choosing to work from home, the home office has become an important place in the home, it is also a good place for the children to do their homework. So if you are lucky enough to have a home office or a study, then here are the main things to consider:

How to care for your Beds

Posted: 09/12/2019

Just like all our furniture, our beds are designed to withstand general wear and tear. However, we recommend that you follow our advice to keep your bed in top condition for as long as possible to ensure maximum sleep quality throughout the natural life of your bed.

  • Do not sit on the edge of your mattress for long periods of time as this can affect its shape. • Use mattress handles, if provided, and do not overload divan bed drawers.
  • Check that the legs and castors are tightened fully from time to time.
  • Turn down the bed clothes every morning to allow the bed to cool down and breathe.
  • If you have bought a "No Turn" mattress, with a single sleeping surface, e.g. Memory Foam, Latex, Pillow Top and Anti-slip mattress, it is important that you rotate your mattress regularly. For all other mattresses it is important that you turn and rotate your mattress regularly once a week for the first two or three months and then monthly thereafter.
  • Turning will prolong the life-span of your mattress. When turning your mattress please do not allow it to bang or fall against the side of the divan, as this may damage the spring system. Some assistance may be required.
  • Take care when turning your mattresses; do it with someone else especially if your mattress is particularly heavy.
  • Frequent turning and plumping reduces natural dips and 'nesting' in spring interior mattresses.
  • The drawers within a drawer divan are usually designed to hold lightweight items, such as bedlinen, and should not be overloaded. Maximum weight: Mini drawers - 7kg, Standard drawers - 15kg.
  • Protect your mattress using a mattress cover which will protect it from coming into contact with body moisture or other liquids. Do not use detergents or chemical cleaners. Using detergents or chemical cleaners on your mattress is likely to damage the fabric and stitching. 

 Following this advice will ensure you enjoy many a good nights sleep on your bed we wish you sweet dreams!!


 

How to care for your Upholstery Furniture

Posted: 05/11/2019

This week we give you some top tips on how to care for your upholstered furniture. Soft upholstered furniture gets just as dusty and dirty as cabinet furniture - the difference is you can't always see it.

  • Try to keep pets off the upholstery and be careful of sharp objects such as belt buckles, toys and watch straps snagging the fabric. If snags do occur, carefully cut off the loose ends with scissors or tuck back in - do not pull them under any circumstances
  • Strong sunlight can cause fabrics to fade, so try to position your sofas and chairs out of direct sunlight
  • Sitting on the front edges of cushions or on the arms of furniture may cause distortion or damage, so avoid this at all costs
  • Velvet and chenille fabrics have a raised surface texture which is prone to flattening and shading, so it is important that you understand this characteristic before purchasing a suite in this material
  • Wood or decorative facings require minimal maintenance, and should be occasionally wiped with a damp cloth to remove dust. Do not use spray polishes or solvent cleaners, as these can have a damaging effect on both the facings and adjoining fabric
  • Caster cups are useful to reduce indentations on carpets and wood flooring
  • Vacuum or brush clean your upholstery weekly to remove accumulated dirt, which can cause colours to look faded or dull
  • Plump the cushions at the end of every day of use, particularly those filled with feather or fibre, and also smooth out the surface to prevent permanent creases being formed
  • Where you can, turn the cushions regularly to equalise wear 

 So there you have it, a few things to consider to ensure the longevity of your upholstered sofas and chairs. Next time we will cover the best ways to care for your cabinet furniture, so keep your eyes peeled for that one!


 

How to care for your Leather Furniture

Posted: 15/10/2019

We have decided to write a series of blogs about how to care for your furniture and being a highly reputable family furniture business that’s been around for 40 years, we reckon we know what we’re talking about! This week ‘How to care for your Leather Furniture’ we'd like to offer our top tips on how to get the best from your leather furniture and ensure its longevity. In the following weeks we will cover Upholstery Furniture, Cabinet Furniture and Beds! Leather is a natural product and will always display traces of its origin such as brands, scars, creases and growth. These hallmarks add character to the suite and do not affect the wearing qualities of the product. Leather is highly resilient and durable, and over time, develops a patina that increasingly enhances its appeal.

  • Always protect your suite from direct sunlight, as this will accelerate the natural ongoing discolouration process. 
  • On pigmented leather, dust should be removed by vacuuming and wiping with a slightly damp cloth, using a solution of warm water and mild soap on a regular basis. Never use abrasives such as household polish, which may damage the treated surface of the leather.
  • Suede, nubuck and aniline leathers require particular care, as they lack a protective coating. Use products specifically designed for these types of finish and follow instructions carefully. Always test any cleaning process on an unseen area.
  • Never place leather furniture against any heating source such as a radiator. To remove spillages, do not rub into the leather as this will cause staining.
  • Liquids should be quickly raised from the leather by using the edge of absorbent paper towels and then dabbing the area lightly with clean towels.
  • Seat, arm and back cushions should, where possible, be regularly plumped up to maintain the shape of your suite.
  • Try to avoid sitting on the edges of cushions or arms, as this may cause uneven wear and distortion of the padding and leather. Certain non-colourfast clothing such as denim can stain light coloured leather if it comes into regular contact.
  • Sharp objects may scratch the surface. Caster cups are useful to reduce indentations on carpets and wood flooring. Strong sunlight can cause leather to fade and crack.

So that’s all for this week, next time we will talk about how to care for your Upholstery Furniture. In the meantime, if you need any additional help or advice, feel free to call in to our store or telephone us to speak to one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff.
