Table protectors: The facts

Furniture can be expensive and refinishing them due to preventative damage can be a costly, time-consuming effort. Table protectors offer an affordable solution to protecting the finish of tables and other expensive furniture pieces. The article below explains the utility of table protectors and offers advice in terms of purchase choice and maintenance.

Table protectors help to protect expensive and irreplaceable furniture pieces

Table protectors defined Table protectors are commonly referred to as table covers, table protector pads, dining table protectors, and tablecloths. They are used to protect the finish of table tops from scratches, stains, burns, fading, and general wear. Maintaining the appearance and value of furniture is important when you consider the large investment made in each piece. Table protectors represent an affordable way to keep your furniture in great condition. Antique furniture is irreplaceable and refinishing antiques can lower the value of the piece. The knowledge and effort required to refinish furniture is huge next to the low cost of a table protector. Availability They are available in a wide range of styles, colours, materials and sizes to suit any need or tastes. Custom-made tables may require custom-made table top protectors, depending on the shape and size of the table.

Choosing and maintaining table protectors

Table pads & table cloths Cheap table protectors are durable, easy to maintain, and come in different fabrics and style suited to every need.
Oilcloth table protectors These protectors are made of vinyl and cotton. They are waterproof, and this makes them useful in resisting stains and spills and can thus be wiped clean with a damp sponge or soft cloth. Glass table protectors Clear table protectors and glass table protectors are used to protect the table without covering up its beauty. Whether you choose a glass or vinyl cloth will depend on your preference and budget. Some people use cheap table cloths as opposed to hard table covers to protect their tables. This is advisable if you only need light protection. Vinyl tablecloths A tablecloth made of vinyl or oilcloth will act as a dirt-trapper as well as any hard cover used. Vinyl table covers are inexpensive and easy to replace. Glass table protectors, felt table protectors, and vinyl table covers all serve the same purpose: to protect the table's finish. Final word Whichever table top protector you choose will depend on your budget and the purpose you would like it to serve. Determine whether you want to purchase a table top protector for durability and protection only, or if you'd like it to enhance your decor and the room's atmosphere as well.

Choosing a stainless steel ice bucket

It could be said that ice buckets owe their birth to a man named Tudor. Frederick Tudor, of Boston, Massachusetts, who wished to make a fortune in selling ice. That dream began to be realised in 1821, and he died an "Ice Baron" in 1864. The ice bucket, a miniature version of the ice houses in which blocks of ice were stored, made it possible to small quantities of ice on hand, became a staple until appliances like the freezer made it less of a necessity. Still, stainless steel ice buckets are still available today, in a variety of shapes and sizes.
