Wood Cabinetry and Furniture should be placed in moderate temperatures (60-80 °F) and moderate humidity (30%-60% RH).
To limit the fading effects of ultra violet (UV) rays, furniture should not be placed in direct sunlight. Blinds, curtains and UV furniture polish help protect wood furniture from UV rays.
Heavy accessories may cause distortion to the top of the finish. Use cork or felt pads under accessories, not rubber or plastic. Lift objects rather than dragging them across the furniture surface. Rotate objects several times a year.
To limit damage to wood finishes, replace vinyl and plastic tablecloths or place mats with linen. Cloth place mats should not be left on furniture for extended periods of time.
We strongly recommend that you do not use these heat producing appliances beneath cabinets. Both the excessive heat and moisture from these appliances can damage cabinetry.
