Important Notes on Painted Wood Cabinets

Please be aware that wood expands and contracts. This natural process, occurring on painted cabinetry – such as the Antique White lines – will create open joints in the painted finish. An open joint line is not considered a defect and it is widely accepted in the kitchen cabinetry industry. The finish will still protect the surface, and the structural integrity of the joint will not be affected. These issues are shared by every manufacturer of painted all wood cabinets, and are not unique to ours. Wood may expand and contract differently from cabinet to cabinet. Even joints within the same cabinet may behave differently. Some joined wood may not show any joint lines, others may be slightly visible, while others may display easily visible joint lines. Joint lines also may occur due to the repeated impacts from normal everyday use. An exposed open wood joint can be damaged from prolonged exposure to water or heavy moisture. Therefore, wipe off any excess moisture from cabinet surfaces as soon as possible.

Wood cabinetry requires some TLC. To avoid potential problems, we recommend that you maintain the relative humidity in your home in the range of 40% to 50%. Extreme variations in humidity will cause problems. When changes in humidity are minor, the dimensional response of the wood will be insignificant. The temperature in your home should also be maintained within a range of 60 – 90F. Cabinetry should not be too close or directly facing air vents or radiant heat sources.

Discoloration
All paints, especially lighter colors, are susceptible to discoloration due to airborne particles such as cooking, grilling, tobacco smoke, fireplaces or candles. Prolonged exposure to natural or artificial light may alter the finish color. Moisture may also discolor the finish.
