All freestanding kithen units consist of MDF painted with an industrial sealer to protect against moisture. They are then coated with a quality grade colour coat as the final product.
Wooden Tops are coated with several layers of industrial grade sealer.
Solid wood products such as butchers block, tops, door frames or live edge/slabs inherently "move" over time. This may cause the wood to crack, warp and vary in color (especially when exposed to moisture and sunlight, for long periods of time.) This may cause the wood to crack, warp and vary in colour and are not considered manufacturing defects. It is important to provide the proper care for cupboards and furniture alike.
It is important to protect furniture, cupboards & cabinets from liquids and excessive heat at all times. Light will increase the discoloration and bleaching on most hardwood & painted components.
Liquids left overnight will stain and cause substantial changes, and may not be repairable.
Over time, there is a natural aging process of wood, and the finished surface will darken.
