Exploring Furniture Design

Hello, I'm Nancy Gopher. Welcome to my site about furniture design and creation. I am crazy about making my own furniture. The furniture creation process always starts with a vision of the perfect design. I instantly jot the idea down on paper and tuck it into my wallet for later use. Upon returning home, I begin planning the materials and tools needed for the project. The materials range from wood and metal to plastic and fabric. I create my own chairs, tables, footrests, bookcases and bed frames. I will use this site to teach others how furniture products are made by hand. I will also explore all of the different furniture designs available on the market today. I hope that you will be intrigued by this subject and visit my site on a daily basis.

Three Important Furniture Care Tips


Making sure that your furniture, like that from a store such as Visions In Contemporary Living, is kept in good condition is essential for ensuring that you are getting the most from this investment. Unfortunately, it can be a common mistake for individuals to commit some errors when caring for their furniture. Often, this is due to simple oversights that can expose the furniture to a higher risk of suffering damages. Fortunately, you will be able to utilize the following few tips to make sure that your home's interior upholstered furniture looks great for many years to come.

Steam Clean Your Upholstered Furniture

As time passes, your furniture can accumulate a shocking amount of dust and dirt. This can be especially true for upholstered furniture as the fabric will be able to capture the various dust and dirt particles. Eventually, these substances will cause your furniture to develop a dull appearance, and it may also start to have a musty smell. To prevent these issues from striking your furniture, you should have it professionally steam cleaned every few years. Additionally, you should consider vacuuming the furniture each month between these cleanings to help slow the buildup of these substances.

Protect The Upholstery Against Stains

Stains can be a major eyesore for any piece of furniture, and they can be an extremely common problem as individuals can easily spill beverages or food onto the upholstery. Luckily, it is possible for you to buy and apply a stain guard to your upholstered furniture. These substances form a protective waterproof layer over the fabric fibers, which will help them to resist absorbing the pigments from any spills. After applying these substances, it will still be essential for you to clean any spills as quickly as possible because the stain guard will eventually start to break down.

Spot Test Any Cleaning Solutions

You will likely need to clean spots from your furniture on a fairly frequent basis. Unfortunately, some individuals may simply choose the cheapest furniture cleaning solution available. These products may be more likely to react with your furniture to produce unsightly stains or other damages. In order to avoid accidentally causing this damage to your furniture with a new cleaning solution, you should always spot test a piece of the upholstery that is unlikely to be noticed. After waiting several minutes, you will have a much better idea of whether or not the new cleaning product will discolor your furniture. This step may seem unnecessary, but it is a small price to pay to avoid causing potentially serious discoloration to your favorite pieces of furniture.
