Suppose you take pride in how their home looks, you’ll probably have looked at adding some Italian pieces of furniture to your collection. But, because of its high-quality design and beauty, you might wonder how to properly care for it to stay in the best condition and always look amazing. Let’s take a look at how you can do exactly that.

Daily and Weekly Maintenance

No matter what kind of Italian furniture you have, it’s important to clean it regularly. Take the time to dust your furniture with a soft cloth to avoid any damage to delicate surfaces. For pieces featuring marble, like the ONDA table from, you should ensure you’re using cleaners that won’t damage the surface. For example, wooden surfaces will need a specific wood cleaner, and pieces topped with glass should be cleaned with a glass cleaner.

Protect from Damage

Your furniture may be at risk of damage further than how you maintain it. If your Italian furniture is always in direct sunlight, you risk it fading or damaging the material. If this is the case, consider getting window tinting or closing blinds when the sun directly hits the furniture. You should also ensure that you use coasters and tablecloths for hard surfaces to protect them from any heat or scratches.

If you’ve ever had a leather sofa, you’ll know all too well how easily they can puncture if you accidentally sit on it with studs on your jeans. Make sure you keep any pieces like this away from the risk of becoming damaged.

Read the Product Manual

When it comes to specific pieces, it will usually come with a care manual that tells you exactly how to care for each material in that piece of furniture. If it doesn’t come with one, make sure you ask your supplier for some information on how to care for it, especially if it’s a more complicated material like suede or silk.

Quickly Deal with Spills and Stains

While spills are usually easy to clean up, they can quickly leave stains on valuable and expensive pieces of furniture. So, as soon as you notice a spill or a stain, take care of it as soon as possible. Remember to blot areas rather than rub it because rubbing it can actually drive stains further into the material, which will make it harder to get out in the long run.

Professional Maintenance

Finally, if you’re particularly worried about a certain piece of furniture, then getting it professionally looked after is your best option. This can be anything from leather care to a thorough cleaning, but you’ll be assured that your Italian pieces of furniture will always look their best.

If you’ve ever looked at the price of a quality piece of Italian furniture, you’ll know how important it is to look after it properly. Follow this guide, and your investment will be well worth the money.
