Taking care of your cabinet furniture will ensure its longevity.
We have assembled some helpful hints and tips on how to care for it. This should be read in conjunction with any care information which comes with the product.
Wood is a natural material and so there will be characteristics within products unique to individual pieces. Distressing, colour differences and on some rustic items, natural knotting can be present. All wood varies in grain pattern and colour and no two pieces are alike. Wood can be prone to very slight movement due to climate change, which is perfectly normal.
An item of furniture on display in our showroom is only a representation of the item you will receive. There is no guarantee that the grain will match the one on display, as each cut of timber is unique. If ordering pieces of the same range at different times, you will find that colours will vary; this is due to the unique qualities of wood.
The hand finishing of individual items result in a subtle variation in finish between pieces and give the range unique character. Over time hairline cracks may appear in the paint finish where there are joints. This is a natural part of the ageing process which occurs on all painted furniture. Dust and clean with a soft, dry cloth.
Simply needs dusting. Finger marks and smears can be removed by using a slightly damp cloth with warm soapy water. Ensure it is dried with a soft cloth straight away.
Dust in the direction of the grain with a dry, lint free cloth. If the wood starts to look dry, it can be refreshed by lightly re-oiling with Danish oil. Always ensure the surface is dry and dust free before applying any oil.
Dust in the direction of the grain with a dry, lint free cloth. If the furniture becomes scratched or marked, rub some solid wax into the damaged area to exclude moisture. If the wood starts to look dry, it can be refreshed by re-waxing with a light coat of soft wax polish. Always make sure the surface is dry and dust free before applying the wax. Avoid buffing the surface too much, after applying the coat of wax, as this will result in a ‘shiny’ surface.
A gentle wipe with a lint free cleaning cloth, in the direction of the grain, is all that is required to maintain the appearance of the lacquered wood.
Collections using foil finishes are generally offered at the least expensive end of cabinet ranges. Real wood grain patterns are transferred onto thin foils and bonded onto manmade board. This makes an ideal choice if you require a product which is of low maintenance.
Marble is a natural product varying in colour, texture and veining, commonly used on a variety of furniture pieces, such as coffee table tops, dining table tops, sideboard tops and writing surfaces.
Marble is a porous material, and relatively delicate; therefore it should be handled very carefully.
We strongly recommend that all electrical installations are carried out by a qualified electrician.
