You’ve taken the time to decorate your conservatory with beautiful pieces, so you probably don’t want to see your new conservatory furniture starting to look old and in bad condition only a short time after purchase. Here are a couple of tips to help you prevent that from happening.
Spend a little more
You can purchase a set of conservatory furniture from £400 through to £2000. Of course most customers have a budget they want to stock to but it is worth considering that many flat pack cane suites simply do not last. The cane frame is not ideal to put bolts through like wooden furniture.
Here at the Cane Company our cane conservatory furniture is made to last. All frames a manufactured as a strong unit before the weaving process is made, entirely hand made in Asia – this system can cost a little more due to shipping costs but the quality is noticeable even to a novice.
The most important thing you can do to protect your upholstery in the conservatory is to install blinds. That stream of sunlight that sometimes makes the room so appealing can also cause your material to fade and to lose color. That’s not something you want to see especially soon after you’ve made the purchase. Consider installing venetian blinds because you have more control over how much light comes in. These blinds can also help make the room more energy efficient.
Follow Cleaning Instructions
Most of the conservatory furniture is covered in some type of upholstery and to keep it looking good you don’t just have to prevent it from fading. You also need to prevent it from getting dirty or stained. The best way to take care of these problems is by reading and following the cleaning instructions. Some types of furniture for the conservatory include upholstery that can easily be removed from the cushions for cleaning. However, if that fabric is meant to be dry cleaned only don’t attempt to wash it at home. You’ll only risk damaging the fabric.
It’s also a good idea to find out those cleaning instructions before you make the purchase. Obviously, cleaning the upholstery at home is going to be more convenient than having to remove everything and run it to a dry cleaner. If you’re unsure about how to clean any type of furniture in your conservatory, contact the vendor or the manufacturer.
