Whether you want to be more eco-friendly by reducing your consumption or you want to ensure you get your money’s worth, making furniture last longer is a goal of many.

The cat is laying on the table and the dog is behind it, with a broken chair.While many articles out there may push special soaps or insist that your everyday furniture be more “decorative” and less “integral”, none of them get to the root cause. We here at Carriage House Furnishing have identified the two main ways you can make your future last longer, as we will go over them below!


Take Proper Care

Of course, taking proper care of your furniture is a surefire way to ensure it lasts long. Some helpful care tips are:

– Use coasters. Water and heat rings are not only unsightly, but they can eventually wear down the surface!

– Use proper cleaners. Make sure you know what material your furniture is made from, and research the best and safest cleaners for it. The wrong cleaner can damage your furniture!

– Dust with a cloth. Spending time to dust your furniture once a week is a great way to keep it looking shiny and new.

– Keep pets away. We aren’t saying your loveable pal can’t snooze in your bed or on your couch. But make sure that your pet isn’t biting or scratching your furniture!

Invest In High-Quality

Getting a cheap dining table may seem fine now, but when it starts chipping, wobbling, or breaking after a few months, you are now out the money you spent, and in the exact same position as before.

At the end of the day, your furniture needs to be able to withstand everyday use. And if you go for lower quality, cheap furniture, your furniture will need to be replaced often.

Investing in high-quality furniture is the best way to ensure your furniture lasts a long time.
