Timber TLC: Extending the Lifespan of Your TEN2 Furniture
At TEN2, we understand that your timber furniture is an investment meant to stand the test of time. Crafted from locally and internationally sourced indigenous hardwoods, our timber products are designed for both aesthetics and durability. We want to ensure that your cherished pieces continue to grace your space for years to come. Here's how to care for and maintain the natural beauty of your timber furniture.
Embrace Timber's Natural Charm: One of the enchanting aspects of timber is its inherent uniqueness. From varying colours to distinct grains and textures, each piece of timber furniture boasts its own character. These qualities are not flaws but features that add depth and individuality to your furniture. Over time, timber responds to its environment, sometimes developing splits and cracks. These changes are part of the timber's journey, and they won't compromise the structural integrity of your furniture.
To minimize these natural movements in the timber, avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, extreme heat, or heavily air-conditioned areas. Timber is like a living entity; it adapts to its surroundings. By understanding and respecting its nature, you'll ensure that your furniture ages gracefully.
Preserve the Showroom Look: For those who prefer to retain the pristine appearance of their timber pieces, some precautions are in order. We recommend using protective measures such as tablecloths or place mats during meals to prevent surface damage. Avoid placing hot items directly on the timber, and be cautious with oils, grease, and spills like butter.
Routine Maintenance for Longevity: Just like any significant investment, your timber furniture may require periodic maintenance or restoration, depending on its use and care. To keep your timber pieces looking their best, avoid direct contact with heat, liquid, or abrasive cleaning agents.
Cleaning your timber furniture is a breeze. A damp cloth is all you need to remove dirt and dust. Here are some additional tips for maintaining the allure of your timber:
Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Steer clear of harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that can strip the timber's natural beauty. Stick to gentle cleaning agents.
Mind the Heat: Protect your timber from excessive heat, which can cause damage. Always use coasters or trivets under hot items.
Stay Dry: Timber and water don't mix well. Wipe up spills promptly to prevent any long-term damage.
A Testament to Timeless Beauty: Your TEN2 timber furniture is not just functional; it's a statement of style and quality. By understanding and embracing the natural characteristics of timber, you can ensure that your investment remains a source of pride and beauty in your home.
Timber is a living material, and as such, it evolves and changes with time. Embrace its quirks, celebrate its character, and relish in the fact that your furniture is a unique piece of nature's artistry. With proper care and a little affection, your timber pieces will continue to radiate warmth and charm throughout the years.
At TEN2, we're not just providing furniture; we're offering you the opportunity to bring the timeless beauty of timber into your daily life. Whether you choose to preserve its showroom-like appearance or let it age gracefully, your timber furniture will continue to tell a story of enduring elegance.
