I just love faux leather storage benches, and I think they are a wonderful invention, especially if you have a lot of things to store in the bedroom, which is our case at home.
I tend to use our faux leather storage bench almost daily, be it with towels, socks, or even kids’ shoes sometimes!
And it has been serving us for the last five years generously and I know from fact that it will keep on serving us and be in our home for many years to come.
And this is what I’m going to share with you today, how to select, clean, and maintain the perfect faux leather storage bench at home.
The first thing you need to understand is related to selecting the best faux leather storage bench for you.
There are so many things I could talk about, but to sum them up, here is the best advice I have learned over the years when it comes to faux leather items and faux leather fabrics: don’t go cheap!
Many people think that faux leather is very cheap because it’s not real leather, but this is absolutely not the case, faux leather has been improved a lot and it’s not what it used to be! In the past, it was a very fragile and extremely rigid material, but nowadays, some faux leather fabrics tend to be even better than real leather ones!
Then, no need to go cheap on this fabric, and remember that when you are dealing with an emotional item at home, like a faux leather storage bench for example, you should not keep changing them and you should think of investing in your home!
In other words, you are buying something which is going to last you many years, and you should not try to go cheap on this at all.
My advice is to always choose the best faux leather storage bench from name brands, and if you think about it’s too cheap, then, it’s probably a low-quality item.
How much should a faux leather storage bench costs?
I bought mine for about $120 and it’s worth every penny I paid for it, it’s large, it’s highly decorated, and it’s very durable, in fact, it’s made out of very fine and durable faux leather fabric, and in my opinion, this is the best price to expect when dealing with faux leather storage benches.
Let’s talk now about how to clean your storage bench.
To do so, always have the proper reflexes, in other words, whenever you are dealing with stains or dirt, you should act very quickly, take a dry sponge or a dry piece of cloth, and then immediately apply some few drops of warm water and start wiping gently.
When you are done, take a good serving of a great leather conditioner and apply it gently as well.
Now, how to keep your faux leather storage bench looking amazing over the years?
It’s easy, every six months, apply a good amount of leather conditioner, especially one that contains pure honey or something similar, use a dry sponge and apply gently, it will keep looking great over the years.
