Corner lounges can be an investment in an attractive home that can be expected to last for years. However, if you want to maintain your investment your suite needs to enjoy proper care. So, here are some care tips to keep your suite in showroom condition.
Remember Prevention is Better Than a Cure
While good furniture can be resilient, you still need to use common sense to maintain the aesthetics. Don’t allow pets, sharp items or shoes on your corner lounge and you shouldn’t let your kids do their arts and crafts projects on your lounge. Bear in mind; cleaning takes more effort than keeping your sofa clean. Remember that while dust may not be as visible as it is on your windowsill, your lounge will still need to be dusted or vacuumed regularly to keep it clean and neat.
Use the Correct Cleaning Products
Every material has specific care instructions, so you need to carefully follow these directions. Soak up any spills immediately using a dry, clean cloth and only use products that are suitable for cleaning your particular material or you could end up with a worse stain. Remember that you can enjoy easier cleaning if you have your suite treated with an invisible coating to protect the material from any stains.
Avoid the Sun
Bright light and direct sunlight can cause tremendous fading of any material, but it can be particularly damaging to leather. So, it is crucial to minimise the effects of any sun exposure. If possible rotate your suite to allow even wear. You can also shield your suite by shutting blinds in times of harsh sun or keeping it away from the window. If it isn’t possible to rearrange your room layout, consider installing vertical blinds that can be angled to allow some light into your room while minimising direct sunlight.
Corner Lounge Suites are Not Jungle Gyms
Lounge suites are designed to provide you somewhere comfortable to sit and recline, but this doesn’t mean that they can handle being jumped on like a jungle gym. You should prevent your children jumping on the lounge suite or sitting on the arms, as it placed additional strain on the seating upholstery and structure that can cause it to lose its shape over time.
Choose the Right Upholstery
Finally, it is important to note that a long lasting and great looking lounge suite starts with the right purchase decision. The best upholstery will wear well and provide excellent support for many years. Good quality materials can also be supported by plumping the cushions to reshape to the original form and keep your lounge suite looking great.
