Buying furniture for your home is undoubtedly a crucial investment, considering the fact that it is an integral part of your home. Like every other investment, the precious furniture and fixtures of your home require special attention, care and maintenance to restore its functionality, allure and value.

The sheen, gloss, material or finish of different furniture pieces vary significantly and thus, it goes without a saying that you cannot use a single cleaning solution for taking care of all the furniture and home decor accessories of your home. Adhering the same, here we present to you some valuable cleaning tips for retaining the strength and beauty of different types of luxury contemporary furniture.

Wooden Furniture

● Routine Care
Before planing your daily cleaning routine, you must try to figure out the type of finish it has on it. Try to find information on the range of conditioners and cleaners for wooden furniture available in the market and on the built-up finishes which, are used for exposing the wood underneath.
All you need to do is; polish your wooden furniture with a lint-free cloth by applying a little furniture polish regularly to retain its shine. Ideally, you should always wipe in the direction of the wood’s grain.

● Special Cleaning
For removing the built-up wax, you should either use synthetic turpentine or mineral spirits with a lint-free, soft cloth. Try to clean the whole piece by using the product and not just the area which, is being soiled.

Leather Furniture

● Routine Care
Since leather is exposed to dryness and cracks, it is advisable that you must keep these luxury contemporary furniture pieces at a distance of at least 2 feet away from all types of heat sources and should not keep under direct sunlight. Try to clean the piece with a soft cloth or damp sponge and clean it regularly.

● Special Cleaning
You should use a solution of ¼ cup of white vinegar with ½ cup of water for cleaning it with a soft cloth. You can also use a leather saddle soap for washing your leather furniture and rub them with a dry soft cloth.

Taking care of your furniture can help you in preserving the quality and exquisiteness of them for many more years to come. You do not need to put extra labour for cleaning and maintenance of your home decor accessories and furniture, but, you should be careful and consistent while treating every single piece of furniture as preserving them is very much similar to preserving the glory, elegance and charming ambience of your home.
