• Love Your Laminate

by Chris Hayes July 01, 2019

It's no secret-- at Hubbub Home, we love laminate. Strong, sturdy, and stylish, there's nothing like it if you want to outfit your office with a look that lasts. We've come a long way, and with expensive-looking finishes and enduring construction, it's a no-brainer to go with this surface solution.

If you want to live a life without watermarks or heat stains, laminate sure is the way to go. That's not to say that a little bit of TLC won't keep your furniture looking fresh. Everything lasts a little longer with a little bit of love, so plan accordingly:

➡ Don't stop dusting! Whether you're using your desk on the daily or have a bookcase in the corner of the room, it's important to keep up with any accumulation. Microfiber cloths, oil-free furniture polish, and gentle household cleaners can be used to keep the dust bunnies at bay.

➡ Stick with simple cleaners for deeper cleaning. Warm, soapy water or a vinegar/water solution is ideal. When you're done, be sure to rinse off surfaces to keep them from becoming sticky and follow up with a quick dry with a paper towel or cloth.

➡ Nothing is safe from sunlight! Direct light can discolor laminate furniture as easily as it can affect photos, paper, and paintings. Try to keep away from the brightest rays while still staying close enough to soak up the sun.

➡ Collect a few coasters for use under items both hot and cold. While laminate is naturally resistant to extreme temperatures and will resist stains, there's no reason not to be careful with your tabletops.

➡ Keep a touch-up pen handy. Bumps and bruises happen to you and sometimes accidents happen to your furniture, too. Any hardware store will have a quick fix for tiny nicks. While laminate is naturally scratch resistant, that's not to say that a drop from a heavy object or a solid wack into a wall won't cause a little damage.
