Buying a quality console table is a significant investment, expected to last for generations. To maintain its beauty and help it last, console tables UK need the right care. Console tables UK have different finishes. Some are finished with two to three coats of lacquer for extra depth and long-lasting durability. The sheen, or gloss, of the finish,varies, depending on the piece or collection. The finish protects the wood and adds to its beauty. No finish is totally indestructible. But with regular care, the finish will last much longer.

To Care For Your Wood Console Tables UK, We Suggest The Following:

  • Avoid placing furniture directly under windows.
  • Sunlight causes fading, so avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight.
  • Keep your console tables away from things that experience extreme changes in temperature. For example, radiators, heat and air vents, and air conditioning units.
  • Periodically rotate accessories on furniture so they do not sit in the same spot for too long
  • Use cloths, pads, or felt to protect the furniture surface from rubber, plastic, hot dishes, beverages, flowerpots, and vases.
  • Clean up spills immediately. Do a blotting actioninstead of a wiping action. Water left on the console table over a long period of time may cause white spots in the finish. Other items like perfume, after-shave,alcohol, and medications can cause severe finish damage.
  • Use a protective pad when writing on a piece of paper with a ballpoint pen on the table’s surface.Something like a book underneath will do just fine.
  • Lift and place objects rather than dragging them across the furniture surface.

Now not all console tables are made of wood, others are made from metal and glass or a combination of the three. But despite their smooth and sleek finish,try to avoid scratches to your metal console tables as they can be extremely difficult and sometimes impossible to remove.

  • Clean regularly using a soft cloth dampened in a diluted solution of warm water and mild detergent. Dry with a soft cloth.
  • Do not use bleach or use any detergent containing hydrochloricor sulphuric acid.
  • Protect metal table tops by using placemats to prevent marks, stains, and scratches.
  • Avoid the use of steel wool or scouring pads as these may scratch and damage the metal or glass surface.
  • Aluminium naturally oxidises, forming a thin oxide layer on its surface, which contains anti-corrosion properties. Once you clean it, you will see a slight black residue on the cloth. That’s because of the natural reaction of oxidisation. This is perfectly normal and not a sign of defect.
