Furniture Placement

Where to place your furniture

As with any timber it needs time to acclimatise into its new surroundings. Putting new furniture into a very warm climate or near sources of heat can cause the timber to acclimatise and dry out too quickly, resulting in cracking and warping, the worst situation for this is rooms with underfloor heating. Recoating your top monthly can help slow this process down. Turning down/off any heating source and slowly rise the room’s temperature to a comfortable level over a long period is recommended. 2-4 Weeks is ideal and no more than 15 degrees.
