Properly Storing Your Cabinetry

Properly storing your cabinetry assures a smooth installation. The summer days are becoming extremely hot and humid, which is why we want to ensure your Kountry Kraft cabinetry is protected.

During a kitchen remodel it is important to schedule the delivery of your cabinetry to coincide with proper heating and cooling in place. It is also important to consider cabinetry that is in a vacation home or a residence that is periodically unoccupied. This information about properly storing your cabinetry is especially important to know during the summer months – when high humidity and temperature changes are likely to occur. Expansion issues are likely to happen if your Kountry Kraft cabinetry is currently stored in a non-air conditioned area. According to Conestoga Wood Specialties; Any solid wood product will expand or contract over time as moisture and climate conditions change. Solid wood cabinetry can act like a sponge, when surrounded by water the sponge absorbs the water and expands. However, unlike sponges you can’t ring the water out of solid wood.

When designing your Kountry Kraft cabinetry, you customize it to properly fit and function in your home. If your cabinetry expands due to improper storage where temperature and humidity is high, there will be issues when it comes time for installation. So, it is very important to listen to take this information seriously and store your cabinetry in a proper area.

Storage Tips:

  • Store inside.
  • Store in a room with air conditioning/temperature control.
  • Use a dehumidifier to be safe about humidity.
  • If it is summer time, or a vacation home, be sure to take extra steps to ensure your cabinetry is safe.
  • Wood expands as humidity increases and shrinks as humidity decreases.
  • Unfinished (exposed) wood will exhibit the most dramatic changes.

As always, if there are any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
