How to clean your wooden furniture

*Collaborative post.

Wooden furniture is easy and affordable to maintain. I love have wooden furniture in our home as they are so child friendly. When you have a growing family, the first thing you need to do is to make sure your house is child friendly and it is a lot easier to do when you have wooden furniture, unlike when your home is filled with glass furniture.

I recently came across Sheesham Furniture range and it is an excellent example of a beautiful wood furniture range. The lovely collection is made from highest quality Indian Sheesham and it is filled with a variety of great looking furniture, from bookcases to coffee tables. There is a piece of furniture for everyone in the range.

If you have wooden furniture and you are wondering how best to clean your wooden furniture, here are some cleaning tips you may find very handy.

 

Start with a damp microfiber cloth

Microfibre cloth is so useful. I always make sure I have some of them in my kitchen cupboard for when I need to clean. Always start cleaning your wooden furniture by wiping with a damp microfibre cloth to get rid of dust and dirt. The cloth should just feel damp and not wet so you don’t damage your furniture. Once you wipe with a damp microfibre cloth, you need to quickly wipe the furniture again with a dry cloth to remove any wetness.

 

Use dish washing liquid

Dish washing liquid can be used in other ways in the home apart from washing dishes. I always add them to my cleaning cloth when I need to quickly clean a messy part in our house and it works great. To get rid of dirt and grime, add a few drops of dish washing soap with some water. That usually gets rid of any gummy or sticky residue. Once the area is clean, wipe again with a dry cloth to get rid of any wetness.

 

Avoid polish sprays on wooden furniture

Polish sprays smell great and may clean very well but they are not best when it comes to cleaning wooden furniture because they usually leave a residue. However, you can apply a good wood furniture polish sparingly to add some shine. Polishing your wood a few times a year is ideal. Always ensure you do your cleaning in a well ventilated room, especially when you are using cleaners or sprays.

Why I am contemplating having artificial grass

*Collaborative post.

We are currently contemplating having artificial grass in our garden because of all the issues we are experiencing with our lawn. Some parts of the lawn are not growing properly and it has been an issue since day 1. We have tried different ways to take care of it but all the extra care and attention we are giving it is not doing much. The builders even had the lawn relaid so many times but after a few months, it ends up looking horrible.

I have heard a lot about the benefits of artificial grass and I am contemplating having one in our garden. Artificial grass is exactly what it says on the tin; its artificial so no treating or mowing needed. Which is why it has become very popular today.

Here are some of the amazing benefits of artificial grass for the garden

 

No nurturing required

Unlike the real grass, artificial grass needs no nurturing, which is amazing. The low maintenance aspect of artificial grass cannot be over emphasised. It saves time and effort, and as you don’t need to treat or mow it. If you ever need to clean it, a quick sweep or spray with hose pipe would do the work. Some people even clean their artificial grass with a vacuum cleaner!

 

It is a beauty

I love how beautiful artificial grasses look. They are beautifully naturally, so no extra work required. I also love how real they look regardless of the season. In summer, when other lawns are looking burnt and worn out, this type of grass still looks green and great!

There are various pricing options

There is a product for everyone and every budget. There are loads of cheap artificial grass available, but remember you get what you pay for. So ensure you buy from reputable suppliers only and go for the type you are sure would work great for your garden. It is also a good idea to go for suppliers like Grass Direct that offer free samples. That way you have a true feel of the quality of grass you are getting before you go ahead with it.

 

You can have the grass laid in unusual places

The beauty of having this kind of grass is that you can have it laid in your garden, balcony, rooftop, patio, and pretty much anywhere you want. Your decorating skills can really come into play as this type of grass allows you play around with it.

How to Update your Bathroom Decor

*Collaborative post.

 

With winter almost over and spring around the corner, I have started thinking about doing some spring cleaning and home improvements. The first on my list is the bathroom. I have started looking at various bathroom decor and how to make the most of our little bathroom space. If you are looking at updating your bathroom decor, here are some easy ways to make some improvements on a budget.

A lick of paint

Painting the walls in your bathroom is the easiest way to update your bathroom. We recently painted one of the bathrooms and the lick of paint literally transformed the bathroom completely. The paint on the wall was already chipping off, so the lick of paint was needed.

 

Add some space and light with a stunning bathroom mirror

Adding a bathroom mirror in your bathroom is a quick and easy to way to update the look in your bathroom. A bathroom mirror not only beautifies the room, it also adds some space and light to the room. It literally opens up the whole room, making the space appear bigger, which is great. Who doesn’t like a bright airy bathroom?

Add some storage

I don’t like clutter at all. It gives me a headache. So storage is very important to me. You can easily update your bathroom with some sensible storage. Apart from the fact that good storage makes the bathroom look good, it also gets rid of all the mess and clutter. A bathroom tallboy, mirrored storage cabinet or vanity unit would work great as storage.

 

Install a towel rail

A good-looking towel rail is a great way to update your bathroom. It is such a functional addition to the bathroom decor. It provides extra heat output and extra storage for towels, bath robes and all the other bits.

 

Renew the tile grout

This is one of the easiest way of improving the look of your bathroom. M did this some weeks ago, and it completely changed the look of our shower cubicle. The shower cubicle usually looks tacky when the clean lines of the grout is discoloured. The best way to get rid of the discolouration is by getting rid of the old grout, the next step is to refill and point with new compound.
