Remodeling a home can be a messy process, so care must be taken in order to prevent your furniture from becoming ruined. Plastic sheets can provide some protection for furniture but they should be securely taped down to the floor. Drop cloths are another solution and they are typically sold at hardware stores for decent prices, but they also should be secured properly, albeit with fasteners instead of tape. Transporting your furniture to a different room will protect your furniture greatly but requires more time and effort. Lastly, keeping furniture in portable storage containers is probably the best method for protecting your furniture.
- Cover your furniture with a plastic sheet and tape it to the floor.
- If you don’t cover up the furniture, consider moving it to another room.
- Another alternative is to use portable storage containers during the renovation.
“The drop clothes may fall off at some point exposing your furniture to dust and debris.”
