Apart from this, the bumpers allow you to easily move a furniture item back and forth, number of times without scratching the floors. Without these bumpers, furniture rearrangement or even slightly moving a piece from its place can lead to scuff marks. Well, let me tell you that rubber is not only used for covering the edges of legs of furniture units but also used for securing the corners of counter tops, tabletops and sides of home furniture. This will save the walls form getting chipped off or scratched while you place the tables, cabinets or other such furniture pieces against it. Side bumpers ensure that the walls do not get damaged even while moving an item from one room to another.
Another way would be by making a poultice by dampening a cleaning material that works as an absorbent. You must apply the paste on the tabletop for an hour. If the stains are extremely rigid, you could leave it on for about 48 hours to get rid of the stain totally. Continue to dampen the poultice and do not let it dry completely.
Furniture items without the bumpers might not damage floors made of quality tiles. But let me tell you that laminates, carpets, vinyl and many other types of flooring are prone to damage when you place heavy furniture pieces on them for days and months. Apart from this, furniture items with metal legs will not only scratch and discolor simple floors but also discolor good quality tiles! This is because the metal legs rust overtime and they leave rust marks on tiles. Especially when you wash floors or clean them with a damp cloth, any type of flooring is sure to get rust marks which are difficult to clear off. So this makes adding legs essential.
It would be a good idea to print these recommendations out and take them with you next time you go shopping for new furniture. Regardless of the size of your budget, in today's tough economic times, arming yourself with just a little bit of knowledge will help you get the best value for your dollar.
