5 Massive Mistakes People Make with Mirrored Furniture

Thursday, 16 January 2014 08:54:24 GMT

Mirrored furniture is a fantastic choice for your home. We know that and so do our many customers who come back wanting more. 

Today, as another huge shipment arrives at Out There HQ, I'm bringing you five massive mistakes inexperienced people make with their mirrored furniture. 

 

 

Mistake 1: They try to move it on their own

Never try to move mirrored furniture on your own. It must be lifted, not dragged or pushed. Paying a little extra to have it delivered to a room of choice is always worth it.  If you do lift it yourself protect your back as our mirrored furniture is particularly heavy.

Mistake 2: They put it in harm’s way. 

Don’t place behind doors or in any place where it is likely to be banged. It’s only a matter of time until it gets broken.  Is there a risk of anything falling on it? Utilise common sense.

Mistake 3: They ignore instructions.

Despite clear instructions and warning stickers some people over tighten handle screws causing the glass to crack. Always err on the cautious side. It is much easier to gently retighten a screw which gradually works loose, than it is to replace a mirrored panel.

Mistake 4: They forget to tell people.

Good quality mirrored furniture will last years if you care for it sensibly, but there will be people in your life who are oblivious to its fragility and value.  We often repair damage caused by cleaners and children. Make them aware how important it is to you.

Mistake 5: They let it gather dust.

Keep your furniture in pristine condition by dusting it regularly with a soft cloth. You can remove finger marks with a simple cleaning spray or window wipes.

 

 

Avoid these common pitfalls to ensure your furniture stays looking magical.

10 reasons to avoid high street furniture stores this January. 

A new year, a new you, a new home. Many of us get this feeling in January, and with the prospect of all the 'high-street give-aways' out there, run out into the cold in search of that bargain bedroom furniture buying into the hype that we have been force fed since Boxing Day.  But it's unnecessary, uncomfortable and expensive. Here's why.
