It’s that time of the year when you feel the rain by being your cosy best. Curling up in the couch reading your best author’s book might be your intentions. A cup of hot chocolate or tea will add up to the mood of monsoon. In this brilliant weather we must not forget our furniture as they need a lot of care and pampering from us. Below is 7 ways how we can protect and keep our furniture safe for longevity.
Dry it out
In no way you are supposed to clean your furniture using wet clothes. Wet clothes are breeding ground for termites as due to heavy moisture in the air the furniture can soften and get damaged easily.
Just like we apply strong moisturizers during winter and sunscreen during scorching heat of the sun in the same way our furniture need oiling and waxing(bees wax) during monsoon in order to remain smooth or else it will result in expansion of furniture.
De-humidify your room
We all know what humidity does to us. It is equally damaging for your wooden furniture. Use a dehumidifier to get rid of the moisture in the room and say goodbye to moulds on wood.
DIY the saviour
There are lot of moisture absorbing agents available in the market, camphor and naphthalene balls are few of them which keeps our furniture intact. They also keep away termites from making home in our precious furniture. Even neem leaves and cloves acts as a good moisture absorbing agents.
A big no to renovation
Monsoon is the time for maintenance hence do not try to paint or polish wood at your home during monsoon as it may adversely affect your wood. Try to get this done before the onset of monsoon or wait for it to get over until you start this enhancement.
Do not keep your furniture in direct contact with the walls
Our walls tend to absorb moisture faster and get damped during monsoon. In return it passes on the moisture to our furniture if kept in direct contact with the wall. Hence it is always advisable to keep the furniture few inches away from the walls.
Change the placement of your furniture
The intelligent thing to do during monsoon is to keep your furniture away from doors and window where it can come in direct contact with the rain water in the form of drops or leakages. Garden chairs that are nylon webbed or painted metal should be kept indoors during the monsoons to prevent them from cracking or from chipping off paint.

“Real poetry, is to lead a beautiful life. To live poetry is better than to write it.”- Matsuo Bashō
The poems collection featured here is a creation of visual arts which takes its roots from inspiration brought upon by the world around us and our experience of it. Each design is defined by a short poem that captures some elements of the mood. Accenting the designs are our new and exciting silk and cotton materials in different tones and finishes. By surrendering to the natural qualities of the materials they have found new ways of working with design, allowing the silk to dictate the depth of the pattern using its natural reflective and almost metallic qualities.
Meystyle specialises in wall coverings with the added feature of integrated LED lights that transform wallpaper into unique light installations that can enhance the mood of any interior. The luxury feel is complemented by a choice of different textures – from natural silks and cotton to a velvety vinyl – to satisfy a more traditional or contemporary look.
