Caring For Your Custom Dining Room Furniture

Wooden dining room tables are almost a grand accent piece in any living space. It brings the family together, is often considered the heart of the home, and remains one of your most versatile and practical pieces of furniture. Timber remains a popular choice for a variety of reasons.

Timber is highly durable, adaptable to almost every design type, and aesthetically pleasing. Additionally, the material is useful in a family setting, making it ideal for children to play on and even do their homework. It makes sense that most homeowners choose a wooden table over glass or other alternatives.

With this in mind, you may be considering investing in a custom timber dining table or looking for the perfect one. Before you do, it is important to know how to care for your furniture. Here are 3 of our simple expert tips:

1) Clean Frequently

Dust and debris can quickly build up, dulling the appearance of your furniture and making it an unhygienic and unflattering area to eat on.

Dusting your table every so often can reduce this and help you avoid an unsightly table. A soft damp cloth or the manufacturer’s recommended furniture polish can go a long way towards preserving your furniture for years to come.

2) Treat Carefully

Sometimes people make the mistake of forgetting to treat and care for their furniture after a few years. Watermarks, stains and worse can quickly decrease the value of your piece and make using it feel like a chore. Wiping down your table from time to time is always recommended. Additionally, using coasters and placemats is often the simplest and cheapest way to protect your furniture.

3) Keep Dry

Timber furniture can be timeless when cared for properly. While wood is durable, it is a natural material and is susceptible to water. It is important to keep it dry. Frequent close inspections can alert you to water damage and help you avoid any rotting or mould growth.

Even though wood is a strong contender when it comes to furniture, it still requires careful handling and maintenance. Quality construction also contributes to how long furniture pieces, such as dining room tables and more last.
