Caring for your Halo Furniture

In our consumerist world of convenience and choice, we have all become used to being able to get what we want, when we want it and to the standard we expect it. The trouble is with this kind of mass-produced line of products, when it comes to furniture, is that those of us who want to reflect a bit more personality in our living spaces all end up with the same furniture as all our neighbours. Handcrafted, bespoke items may come with a higher price tag, but the value that you receive with something like, for example, G Plan Upholstery living room furniture, goes far beyond price.

When we’re buying furniture, we have no qualms about choosing the items we think look best and will really enhance our living spaces. However, one thing we don’t always consider is how best to care for the furniture items we choose so that their life may be prolonged, and how they keep looking their finest for longer.

Halo dining room furniture is no exception. Every item may be made with love, craftsmanship and care, but a degree of extra vigilance is needed in order to maximise their life and effect. Halo came up with a general list of tips that should help to prolong the life of all their furniture items:

  • Avoid placing any item too close to a direct source of heat, such as a radiator
  • Do not place items in direct sunlight, as it can accelerate fading in wood and leather
  • If assembling items, it is essential that you follow the instructions precisely
  • Once assembled, hot dishes or cups should not be placed directly onto any wooden surfaces such as cabinet or table tops
  • In the event of a stain, scratch, chipping or any other damage, it’s best to call a professional to try and resolve the problem
  • Avoid sharp objects on upholstered furniture as they may snag the fabric

In addition to the above guidelines, there are more things that one can do to care for their Halo furniture. Looking more carefully at leather upholstery, one important thing to remember is only to clean it when absolutely necessary. It’s okay to dust/vacuum it occasionally, or to use a soft, slightly damp cloth to wipe the surface gently. If the leather gets wet, then use a paper towel to wipe up any excess water, and then leave to dry naturally.

Wood and glass materials should also be considered carefully. Halo wooden furniture is finished with either lacquer or wax to protect the wood, while also maintaining its natural beauty. Following already mentioned (above) guidelines on keeping wood out of heat/sunlight, and ensuring that mats are used for hot/wet dishes that are placed on them will keep all unnecessary wear and tear to a minimum. Glass is often something overlooked, as people assume it can be cleaned with any kind of detergent or cloth without any risk. The truth is that glass panel surfaces should only be cleaned with a damp, soft cloth with washing up liquid, soft soap or window cleaner. Other washing powders or detergents with abrasives should be avoided. While they are effective cleaning agent, their abrasives may well scratch the glass and ruin the finish!

Put simply, you don’t have to be a master craftsman in order to make sure your Halo furniture stays in good order. Through these simple care steps, your living space will be brought to life by the beautiful items in the Halo Living range. Browse our Halo dining furniture now and make an order with us today.
