Well, the entrance is the first place where a visitor or guests step foot into, so it is essential to set the tone of your space at the very onset. Clean the entrance. If there are any slippers lying scattered, clear them. If there are stray and dried leaves near the entrance, clean it and arrange two chairs outside the main door. This will instantly beautify the porch and make it more welcoming.

Caring & Cleaning Wooden Furniture the Right Way

Wooden furniture is a treasured possession in any home and is usually considered as the classiest of all furniture choices. So it goes without saying that with good care and proper furniture cleaning, furniture can last for generations to come. Team Mobel has come up with 5 basic tips to prolong your furniture’s “life”. Let’s take a look at the tips here:
Dust Often
Dust may seem harmless, but it does more harm than meets the eyes. Enough buildup can scratch the wooden surface of your furniture. Hence, frequent dusting is a must. It removes dust that accumulates in a filmy layer. Experts at Mobel recommends to use a lightly dampen soft cloth or a microfiber cloth to effectively remove dust. A dampen cloth prevents the dust to scatter and float in the air, thereby effectively preventing it to settle on nearby furniture surfaces.

Mayonnaise To The Rescue
Worried that the wet glasses have left watermarks rings on your tabletop? Worry not. Bring out the mayonnaise. It works wonders to remove watermark rings from any furniture finish. All you need to do is spread a generous amount of mayonnaise on the affected area of your furniture and let it sit overnight. Wipe off next morning and kiss your worries goodbye.
Placement Matters
Did you know that wood in its natural state contains a surprising amount of moisture? It does. Hence, preserving the right amount of moisture levels is crucial. Never place furniture near fireplaces, heating vents or next to a window where it will sit in direct sunlight. The temperature swings can damage the wood with splitting, warping and fading. Position fine wood furniture away from heat and light and protect it from damage.
Arm Caps
Areas where bare skin comes to rest like the armrests, seat cushions; chair backs are mostly subjected to dirt and abrasion. Use arm caps to protect high-contact areas of furniture. The beauty of arm caps lies in the fact that they are beautifully tailored to fit snugly over sofa and chair arms.

4 Tips On How To Pick A Fantastic Coffee Table

A coffee table is primarily a Living Room Furniture and any living room without it is like a model without makeup, undone. Just as makeup is one important element that completes the look, so also can the ideal coffee table. This piece of furniture serves multiple purposes ranging from completing a look, to supporting beverages, storing magazines or books to displaying decorative items. But in order to lay your hands on the perfect coffee table you need to ask yourself, which style will best suit your room? There are multiple options to keep in mind before going ahead with the purchase. Should you pick a modern metallic one with a glass table top or a traditional wooden one with carved wooden table legs. Also, when it comes to shape, what should be the ideal shape of the coffee table: should it be square,rectangular or round? The option of plenty can at times be more overwhelming than helpful. Our top 4 picks will help smash the endless spiral of decisions and guide you in the route of bringing home that ideal coffee table.

Furniture

Budget: The price range for a coffee table can start from being extremely budget friendly to being ultra-expensive. Draw your budget and stick to it. However, you can always bend a little on your budget if something fancy really catches your attention.

Shape: As you outline the space for your living area, try to visualize the best furniture shape for the area. Do you have a large living room or a small one? If you have kids or pets at home, it is ideal to go for an oval or round coffee table. Unlike the square or rectangular ones, these have curved edges which prevents any injuries should anyone accidentally trip and hit himself. A rounded one also gives extra room to walk past. However, if you have a big apartment and a square or rectangular coffee table had always been on your bucket list, don’t think twice.

Functionality: Another key factor is to understand the primary use of the furniture. Will it be used just to hold beverages or also provide storage? If storage is your primary concern, how much storage do you need? Modern day coffee tables come with drawers or shelves to hold everything from magazines to kids’ toys and more. While choosing a table which covers all your storage needs, don’t miss to make sure that it holds drinks and plates easily. That is why it was designed in the first place, right?

Material: When it comes to materials, coffee tables can come in a vast range of variety. You’ll come across tables made of metal, wood or even glass combined with steel or brass. If you seek for a more traditional look, you have furniture made of oak, cherry, walnut or maple  to choose from.
While selecting a specific material, keep in mind if it will blend well with the existing décor of the room where the coffee table will be placed.

Finding the ideal coffee table might call for some thoughtful consideration but it does not necessarily have to be an arduous affair. These tips will certainly make your search for the perfect table inspirational and fun. For some amazing Coffee Tables, drop by at Mobel, Kolkata’s Leading Furniture Store.

Finding That Ideal Bedroom Dresser

Looking for that perfect bedroom storage solution that will suit your needs and space? If your answer is yes, you might want to bring home a dresser. Dressers are just perfect to add some extra space to store away your clothes or other personal items like scarves, hats or even jewelries. At MoBEL, you will find diverse dresser designs and finishes to choose from and the solution to finding that ideal dresser is knowing what you require in a dresser and the style you are looking for. First ask yourself whether what you are looking for is a simple dresser to store your daily wear or a fashionable dresser with a mirror that works double duty as a storage and a vanity. Weigh what tops on your priority list before you go shopping, that way you will be able to choose the right dresser both efficiently and quickly. Here’s a few things to consider when shopping for that ideal dresser.

To begin with, it is important that you have a clear image in mind of the type of dresser you want in your bedroom. What specific design and size of dresser would best fit in your room? What décor you are trying to blend in your room? While shopping, you will come across a lot of beautiful and Stylish Dressers to choose from but it is important to go by functionality more than design. If a striking design catches your attention but offers you little functionality, it is advisable to not go by looks but by usability, for a fancy looking dresser might look good in the store but when bought home might end up looking like a huge mismatch for the room.

Bedroom-Dresser

Next in line is the color you choose. Choosing the color for your dresser is just as important as the style you pick. For instance, a bright yellow dresser will be a wrong choice for a Bedroom which has a traditional or classic theme and vice-versa. Modern dressers are usually crafted in engineered wood. Whatever color you choose for your dresser, make sure it doesn’t overpower the rest of the room.

The next thing to keep in mind is the dimension. It would be really frustrating if you pick a dresser of your choice, buy it, and bring it home only to find out that it doesn’t fit in the desired spot. Hence it is absolutely necessary to know the measurements of the area well before going shopping.

The last thing that you need to take into consideration is the quality of the Furniture. While it’s tempting to go for a half price deal, it is advisable to not go for a dresser that is really coming at a cheap price. That points to only one thing, that is the dresser is not made of good quality material and the durability is doubtful.

If you keep these tips in mind, you should be able to come across that perfect dresser at a good price.

Benefits of Modular Furniture

Modular Furniture is the new buzz in the furniture world. But what’s so incredible about it?

However, the scenario is completely different when it comes to modular furniture. The design of modular furniture is so flexible that it gives its customers the freedom to choose the desired size and module. Since, almost all the pieces are pre-made to fit rooms with different size and space, customization is not always required.

Earlier furniture were designed as one whole piece so moving it from one place to another required the help of more than just 2 hands. Additionally, it posed a serious problem for people who moved often as the transportation cost was quite high as well. However when modular furniture entered the scenario, it eased the problem of transportation as each module could easily be installed, dismantled and reassembled by following some easy instructions.

The designs of Modular Kitchens and modular wardrobes have evolved as per rising demands of the consumers. The flat, boring box shape has made way to the smooth line and flowing contours to blend well with the changing times. Engineered wood is the preferred material to built a modular furniture as it is both lightweight and strong at the same time.

According to one’s requirements, modular wardrobes can easily house more shelves than displayed in showroom. Those very same shelves can then easily be removed as they are installed with the turn of a screw-drive. The puzzle-like configuration on one hand helps the manufacturers meet the consumers demands, while on the other hand it lets the customer enjoy customization at any point of time with the same module without having to spend any extra penny for a new piece.

There are no real drawbacks in opting for a modular furniture. Given the benefits it offers over a traditional piece of furniture, modular furniture is the real deal. And, at MoBEL you will come across a wide array of modular furniture to suit your needs. So, are you ready to shop?
