How to Keep Your Leather Furniture Looking Great

Last updated 6 years ago

Enhance the look of your bedroom and living room with leather furniture, which is both attractive and durable. With the proper care, leather furniture will be a beautiful and functional addition to your home for many years. Here’s how to maintain your leather living room furniture so it remains as attractive as the day you bought it:

Take Preventative Measures

There are a lot of things you can do to prevent problems from happening with your leather furniture. For example, keep leather furniture away from direct sunlight to prevent it from fading and hardening. Try to teach your pets to stay off of the furniture, so they do not scratch the material. When possible, avoid sitting for long periods with bare skin, because your body oils can weaken the surface.

Clean Your Furniture Regularly

The most regular cleaning you will have to do for your leather furniture is to dust it regularly. If something spills, blot it up with a clean sponge or cloth as soon as possible. Only use gentle cleaning solutions, like soaps and detergents, when handling your leather furniture. You can also ask the staff at the furniture store for recommendations about the best cleaning products to use.

Use a Good Conditioner

A good leather conditioner will keep your furniture feeling soft and supple. Every six to 12 months you should recondition the surface of your leather furniture, which will greatly extend its life. This will help your leather maintain a great feel and appearance for years to come.
