Care of Timber, Doors & Wood worktops:

Wood is a beautiful natural product and the different grains and textures in the wood often means there are a variety of tonal differences in the doors and drawer fronts. Prior to fitting, lay out the door and drawer fronts and adjust the positions to get the best overall balance.

Exposure to daylight will change the appearance of the natural wood fascias. Each type of timber reacts differently and at a different rate, becoming darker, richer and with more contrast. Exposure to direct sunlight will bleach wooden furniture. Bleaching of colours can affect your furniture within two months and will be different on each of the door and drawer front component depending upon its position relative to the windows

Installation in recently plastered properties can see the moisture drawn into the timber causing a slight swelling, which will reduce when the relative humidity returns to normal. The degree of reaction is dependent on the timber type.

Vinyl doors / laminate worktop joints - Vinyl wrapped MDF doors and laminate worktop joints can be affected by heat and water. Care should be taken to ensure the edges of doors are not exposed to prolonged or excessive heat from small domestic appliances (kettle, toaster, etc) and integrated extractor doors are opened with the extractor in operation when a hob is in use. Care should be taken to ensure the edges of doors are not doused in water. Care should be taken to ensure that laminate worktop joints are not exposed to water or heat and any water spillage is cleaned immediately.

Exposure to direct sunlight will eventually bleach the colours slightly and will be different on each of the door and drawer front component depending upon their position relative to the windows.
