Top 10 tips

Assemble your items on a clean surface, and put a soft blanket on the work surface, to protect your items. If you haven''t the skills to assemble it, get someone who does, or call Dial4furniture and we can do it for a fee.

Be very cautious when using power tools - even though they are essential alot of the time, select one with torque restricters, so you can turn the power down. Then finish off with a screwdriver.

Don''t put hot or cold objects directly onto furniture, and wipe any spills immediately.

Buy as much as you can afford at once, so it all matches, and you avoid the risk of items and ranges becoming altered or discontinued.

Get help when lifting furniture, once it is assembled the center of gravity moves much further away, so whilst it was easily moved in a flat packed state, when assembled you can soon strain your back.

Cover furniture with Egyptian cotton sheets before decorating.

Avoid overloading drawers and wardrobes I think we can all be guilty of doing it at some stage.

Avoid chipboard and laminated furniture if you can afford to do so. Solid wood, or painted MDF is stronger.

Plan in advance, make a room plan on paper, and measure your available space. Ensure you have adequte space for the furniture your buying, and that you can get the items into the room.

Be cautious with wood and  laminate floors, they can proove to be a slippery, and bedframes are prone to sliding on them. If you do put a bedframe on a laminate floor put a rug under the entire bed so it all moves together.

To look after your furniture use wax to polish it with, if you use furniture polish use it sparingly.
If you damage the furniture you can touch up the waxed finish using a medium oak stained waxed,  available at most DIY stores, use a little bit at a time to build up to the desired colour, I would advise do a pracitise run on the back of a drawer or some where out of sight.
If you dent or split the wood, use normal wood work glue to join it together, and you can buy medium oak wood filler, to fill any holes
