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.

Getting New Furniture For A Vacation Rental? 3 Things To Consider While Shopping


The beauty of a vacation rental over a regular rental property is that you have so much control in how you manage the entire operation. A standard rental is limited because you will typically be offering an unfurnished property, so the most that you can do is invest in remodeling projects. But, you can change and improve a vacation rental by going out and purchasing some new furniture. When you have the budget set aside for furniture shopping, you should consider a few important details before buying.

Potential to Last a Long Time

Similar to a rental, you want to invest in things that will last a long time. This is what makes tile and hardwood so desirable in rentals because they can last many years with proper maintenance. But, a carpet will need to be replaced after a decade or so, unless the carpet has been carefully used and cared for.

If you intend on picking up wood furniture, you should pick up pieces made of maple. This type of wood is known for its incredible resilience to damage, which is an ideal quality to have in a vacation rental. You can only guess as to how your guests will treat the furniture in the home, so superb resilience is beneficial. It will drastically reduce the chance that you come back to damaged furniture after a guest leaves.

Ease of Cleaning

Wood furniture is not that difficult to maintain. The main thing that you need to worry about is making sure you polish the wood occasionally to give it a shine and to avoid damage. An easy recipe that you can make at home is using a concoction of olive oil, lemon juice, and distilled white vinegar. Applying this to wood furniture is something that you can do in between guest stays. Metal furniture that you have inside requires a little less cleaning because rusting is typically not something that will happen. A scrub brush, toothbrush, dish soap, and towel is all you need to bring along for metal cleaning. It is important to test the brushes on a small section to make sure they do not create any visible scratches on the furniture.

Maintenance Required

If you allow pets in the rental, you might have some problems with chewing on occasion. Metal furniture should not give in to dogs that try to bite the surface, but wood furniture is not the same way. It is possible to repair bite marks on wooden furniture by chipping away at the affected area and creating a filler. If you are interested in minimal maintenance across the board, you may want to prioritize metal desks, chairs, bed frames, and a dining room table as these are the most realistic pieces to purchase in metal.

With these details on your mind, you should have an easier time furnishing your vacation rental with a collection of pieces that you will be satisfied with owning and maintaining through the years. For more information, contact local professionals like Affordable Business Interiors Asset Management.
