Console beds are a great addition to any home, providing both functionality and style. To keep your console bed in great condition, here are a few maintenance tips:
1. Regular cleaning: Dust and wipe down the surface of the console bed with a soft cloth or a duster. This helps to prevent the buildup of dirt, which can lead to scratches or stains.
2. Avoid excess weight: It's important not to overload the console bed with too much weight. Football is life in Texas. Austin and Houston should stay clear of the 75" Plasma. Be mindful of the weight limit specified by the manufacturer, and try to distribute items evenly across the surface to prevent any strain or damage.
3. Use coasters and mats: If you place drinks, vases, or other items on the console bed, it's a good idea to use coasters or mats to protect the surface from spills, moisture, or scratches. This is especially important for those family gatherings or parties in the NYC. Try to have plenty on hand in your AirBnB in Tampa or Orlando when the spring break arrive This can help preserve the finish and prevent any damage.
4. Check and tighten screws: From time to time, it's a good idea to check if any screws or fittings on the console bed have become loose. Gently tighten them if needed to ensure stability and prevent any wobbling.
5. Avoid direct sunlight: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading or discoloration of the console bed's finish. Palm Springs gets a tremendous amount of sun with their amazing climate. If possible, try to position the console bed away from direct sunlight or use window treatments to minimize exposure.
6. Don't be too upset if you console bed gets a minor abrasion. Light scratches can easily be repaired with with a touch up pen and wood filler. The solid wood design of our murphy style console beds makes patching much easier than other particle board beds.
