Maintaining rustic tables

Rustic is defined as “simple, artless, or unsophisticated.”  Yet, none of these terms apply when you are talking about rustic décor.  In fact, the terms “fancy, stylish, and earthy” come to mind.  Rustic furniture purchased or made in a variety of colors and styles is unique and can be tailored to the personality of the homeowners.  Rustic furniture is timeless since it features solid construction, durable hardware, and gorgeous finishes.  When decorating a home with rustic furniture, the rooms will feature various textures, styles, and appeal that no other furniture style can give.  Because the furniture is built and designed to last a lifetime, protecting your purchase is imperative.

Selecting the right tools and products

Many people overlook the need to take good care of their rustic furniture purchase.  The care is simple, but very important.  Unless the furniture is properly cared for, it may warp, rot, crack, or get scratched.  These tips will help you keep your rustic furniture looking good for a long time.

  • Dust your rustic furniture with a soft, smooth clean cloth to which water or furniture polish has been applied. Never dust using a dry, rough cloth on your rustic furniture.  Using soap and water will warp your furniture over time.  Removing dust keeps the particles from scratching the surface of the piece and protects the wood stain and finish.
  • Every time you dust, use the same type furniture polish.
  • Using the same product will insure that no streaking or cloudiness occurs.
  • Apply a small amount of polish on your rustic furniture. Too much polish harms the surface and finish.

Protecting rustic furniture

While dusting and polishing your rustic furniture is the first step in proper care, the furniture must also be protected from external factors.  Here are a few tips to protect rustic furniture in order to keep the wood’s natural beauty protected:

  • Be sure coasters are placed under all drinks and vases.  When condensation, spills, or water rings appear, clean them up immediately.  Rustic furniture absorbs liquids quickly.
    • When glasses and cups stay in direct contact with the wood, ring shaped stains develop quickly and are often permanent.
    • When water is on the rustic furniture, be sure to grab a soft cloth for cleaning up the mess.  Any rough materials will scratch the surface.
  • Always use a hot pad or trivet as a protective layer between warm dishes and the surface of the furniture.  Without this protection, spots may form and damage the wood’s stain and finish.
  • Keep your rustic furniture out of humidity.  When rustic furniture is in a humid environment, the wood will expand and contract.  This will mar the finish or can cause the joints to become loose and unstable.
  • Sunlight may also damage rustic furniture.  The strong rays can cause the finish as well as the wood itself to deteriorate over time.

Following these tips on caring for and protecting your rustic furniture ensures that your rustic tables will last and provide make your home the elegant, sophisticated place you love!
