Furniture at home does not only add aesthetic appeal and ambiance. Importantly, these fixtures that cost you are also essential investments for your interior due to their functionality. However, weather changes, sunlight, dust among others can cause damage and diminish its condition. shares some helpful tips on how to add life span and maintain the beauty of your furnishing:

Furniture can deteriorate quickly if stored in a basement (high moisture), attic (high heat), garage or non -climate controlled storage units or warehouses (continual changing conditions). Excess heat and dryness can cause wood to split and/or crack. Keep your furniture away from all direct heat sources like radiators, wood stoves and air ducts. If you need to put your furniture near a heat source, use a shield or diverter to deflect or direct heat away. Wood is most likely to check (crack) when the climate in your home suddenly changes from hot and humid to cold and dry. Frequent and sudden changes in humidity and temperature are especially bad.
