Furniture care & maintenance

Authentic materials create furniture that lasts, and with the right amount of love, care and cleaning you can double the life of your designs. Read here to learn all about how to care for and maintain all our different materials to ensure they get the best conditions for a long life.

Caring for your sofa

Each sofa type must be treated differently if you want it to stay looking as beautiful as when it arrived in your living room. We've compiled the best recommendations for how your sofa can keep its shape, colour and comfort for many years to come.

How to maintain your sofa

Different types of fabric require different types of care and cleaning. Learn how to care for furniture in cotton, polyester, wool and velour, to help them keep their optimal shape and colour.

A piece of furniture in leather has a number of natural properties that you can enhance and strengthen by using the right care products.

Wood is an organic, living material that is affected by its surroundings. Wood therefore reacts differently according to the room in which it is located. A dry room that's very warm can cause the wood to dry out and contract, whereas a damp room can cause the wood to expand. That's why it's so important to treat and care for your wood furniture thoroughly and often.

 

In Bolia we use two laminate variants: HPL and FENIX® laminate, which both have a minimalistic appearance, are durable and easy to maintain.

 

Marble is a natural material, where no two marble slabs are alike. Our marble is available in various colours, such as brown, green, white and black.

 

    • Stone care

      Our stone assortment includes terrazzo, quartz and concrete. The first two stone variants are similar to each other, but the binder in quartz is different to the one used to blend terrazzo, which means the care product also has to be different.

    • Care and maintenance of terrazzo, quartz and concrete

      Terrazzo has a porous surface and therefore it requires Bolia Stone Sealer, while as quartz is polished it needs to be sealed with Bolia Marble Polish to ensure optimal durability.
      To protect concrete, it is important to saturate the surface. Our concrete designs are always pre-treated at our manufacturers, but we always recommend that you treat the surface before, during and after use, as otherwise the surface may become damaged. We recommend Bolia Stone Sealer for this.
      All three types of stone need regular care and daily cleaning with a wrung, damp and clean cloth. Natural stones cannot generally withstand acid or other acidic detergents. Therefore, if you spill something acidic on the surface, you should wash it off immediately.

    • Caring for wicker

      Wicker is made from organic, living materials that are affected by their surroundings, and will therefore react differently according to the room in which they are placed. A dry room that's very warm can cause the wicker to dry out and contract, whereas a damp room can cause the wicker to expand. It is therefore important to consider where you place your wicker furniture, to ensure it retains its light and elegant appearance.

    • Caring for your wicker furniture

      Generally, wicker furniture is easy to maintain, and a clean, well-wrung cloth is enough to help extend the design's life. We recommend that the frequency you clean your furniture depends on how often you use it and how prominent its position is in your décor. If the furniture takes centre stage in your home, you may need to clean it more often.
