The best care tips for your coffee table after a cocktail evening

Naturally oiled wooden surfaces – care for solid wood

A dry cotton cloth is used for daily cleaning and care of naturally oiled wooden surfaces. For simple soiling, the wood and metal coffee table can simply be wiped with a damp cloth . Heavier soiling and fat deposits can be removed with lukewarm soapy water .

Then dry well with an absorbent cloth to avoid water damage. But here, too, an oiled table proves to be resilient and easy to touch up if you follow the correct application instructions.  

Natural means to care for a solid wood table:

Almond Oil


Olive Oil


An oil-treated wood surface can be sanded and refinished as often as you like, unlike lacquered surfaces. The coffee tables VESINA and DEVANA, the table set TRE SEMNIA or the side table SOLI from Metallbude also score with their high-quality oak tops, as hardwood has a high impact resistance and surface hardness. So nothing stands in the way of everyday use, and to make daily cleaning easier, the coasters from Metallbude can be used. The felt pads are gentle on the wood, and the high-quality sheet steel surface does not absorb liquids and can be wiped clean without leaving any marks.  

Powder Coated Finishes - Maintain Metal

Regular wiping is the best way to maintain powder-coated surfaces. Simply mix lukewarm water with a pH-neutral, non-abrasive cleaner. Dirt can be easily removed with a soft cloth or sponge. Glass cleaners with a PH of 5 or 8 can be used without hesitation. Small areas of damage can be touched up with a touch-up pen.

Special paint sticks are available for powder coatings. Powder coatings can also be easily touched up with acrylic paint from a spray can, as well as 2K or synthetic resin paints. In everyday use, however, a powder-coated table is resistant to scratches and easy to clean when liquids are spilled. Metallbude offers several tables with a powder-coated fine textured surface, such as the VESINA X and DEVANA X coffee tables, the TRE SEMNIA X table set and the SOLI X occasional table.

Harsh cleaning agents or solutions with the following ingredients must not be used under any circumstances:  

- Ketones (e.g. acetone) 

- Abrasives or polishes 

- Chlorinated hydrocarbons 

- esters (nitro or other thinners and acids)
