How to Take Care of Your Furniture for the Winter Months

You would have enjoyed your garden furniture greatly over the beautiful summer months with numerous evenings spent relaxing under the awnings experiencing a fine summer breeze. However, it is now that time of year where you choose to cosy up inside on the sofa instead, but you don’t want to be leaving your garden furniture out in the cold! These are some of the ways you can take care of your garden furniture so that it is still fresh to be brought out next year.
Giving it a Clean
Your garden furniture would’ve been put to good use over the spring and summer and it is likely to have accumulated a bit of dirt around the edges. The quality of cane and rattan furniture can become dirty and worn over time if it isn’t cleaned every now and again. Cleaning it is a fairly short and simple process. The items needed will be a nail-brush, a bowl of hot water with a bit of washing detergent in it and a cloth. Firstly, just give it a brush with some of the water and make sure you get in to all the little nooks and crannies! Then get rid of any of the excess dirt with the cloth.
Storing the Furniture
To prevent the weather of autumn and winter from causing damage to your furniture you may want to try store it indoors, possibly in your garage or if there’s any space in your conservatory. Of course, not of all us have this type of spare space available indoors. So another viable option is to purchase a cover to put around your furniture to prevent any damage to it. A good idea may be to get some cable ties or clips to stop the wind from blowing it off.
Bring the Outdoor Indoors
A trend that has been big recently is the multi-purpose use of some outdoor furniture and the ability to add it to your indoor décor. This means that an alternative to covering your indoor furniture is that you can still keep it out on show in your conservatory, and it eliminates the scenario of having to hide the lovely furniture away.
