General recommendations for furniture operation

If you want your furniture to last a long time, please with its flawless appearance, it is necessary to follow simple rules of operation, maintenance and use of furniture.  

Suitable weather conditions

Weather conditions and environmental effects directly affect the condition of the furniture, its appearance, quality and operational characteristics. In order to avoid rapid aging of the painted surface and deformation of wooden elements, the furniture should be protected from intense light, moisture, and temperature effects.

The furniture should be protected from long-term exposure to direct sunlight, as the color of some parts may change due to long-term exposure to intense light.

It is forbidden to install the internal lighting source closer than 20 cm from the furniture parts, as this can cause the color of the product to change, delamination of plastic or laminate, overdry wooden elements and parts covered with wood veneer.

In the room where the furniture is used, it is recommended to maintain a relative humidity of about 50-70 %. Extremely high or extremely low relative humidity should be avoided, because over a certain period of time this can lead to deformation of the furniture elements (swelling, over-drying, delamination). In order to avoid such consequences, it is recommended to use an air humidifier and dryer to maintain a normal relative humidity in the room.

Very high or very low temperatures, as well as large temperature contrasts, can damage furniture parts quite severely. The furniture must be stored in rooms where there are no sudden fluctuations in temperature and/or humidity. The furniture is not adapted to outdoor conditions. It is recommended to use the furniture at a temperature of +18°С – +25°С. Furniture parts cannot be closer than 1 m from a heat source (including heating devices). Care must be taken not to let objects heated to a temperature of more than 50°С (irons, pans, etc.) fall onto the furniture. It is not recommended that the furniture be exposed to long-term exposure to hot air (incompletely closed oven, stove that has been heated for a long time, radiation from heating lamps). As a result of exposure to hot weather, the materials of frames and facade surfaces may begin to peel off.

Furniture should be protected from:

  • direct sunlight;

  • direct exposure of steam to furniture surfaces;

  • mechanical impact (avoid impacts, do not scratch the surface);

  • exposure to liquids (moistened surfaces must be dried immediately);

  • sudden temperature changes; high temperatures, e.g. do not place hot dishes directly on the surface of the worktop; open fire.

  • especially protect painted MDF (medium density fiberboard) and other furniture surfaces from mechanical impact.


In order to prevent the effects of steam and high temperatures released during cooking on the furniture, it is necessary to install a steam collector above the stove at the height specified by the manufacturer (the height may vary depending on the type of stove - gas or electric). The furniture must be in a dry, ventilated room. It is not recommended in any way to cover the grills and air extraction holes required for the ventilation of household appliances. When cooking, do not forget to turn on the hood so that the steam does not condense on the furniture or the ceiling, which can be seriously damaged by the steam. It is also advisable to turn on the hood at maximum capacity a few minutes before starting to cook, in order to create air circulation in the room.

Do not place coffee machines and kettles under wall cabinets, as water vapor and high temperatures can damage the furniture.

Do not open the oven door while it is in operation. Do not open the dishwasher door during a wash program, as hot water or hot steam may escape from the inside.

The furniture must be protected from the effects of chemically active substances (concentrated alkalis, acids, solvents, etc.). Even short-term exposure to such liquids can cause damage not only to furniture surfaces and mechanisms, but also to your health.

Since many cleaners contain concentrated, chemically active substances or abrasive (scrubbing) particles, only special cleaners designed for furniture care should be used for furniture care.

Dirt and moisture should be removed from the furniture surface with a soft cloth (plush, flannel, etc.) or use special wipes for furniture care. Do not use rags and cloth with abrasive particles, as this can damage the paint and laminate.

It is not recommended to keep uncleaned dirt of any origin from the surface of the furniture for a long time, as stains that cannot be removed may form.


Cabinet furniture (kitchen cabinets, hallway furniture, wardrobes, chests of drawers, etc.) must be used according to their functional purpose. Furniture that is not used for its intended purpose can be damaged. All items in wardrobes and cabinets should be arranged in such a way that the weight is evenly distributed over the entire area of shelves and drawers. It is recommended to place the heaviest items as close as possible to the fixing points, ie to the edges of shelves and drawers. It is recommended to store heavier items in the lower part of tall furniture structures (kitchen cupboards, wardrobes, racks) than in the upper part. This will ensure greater stability of these structures.

Do not hang extra weights on doors and drawers. Open and close furniture doors and drawers gently without banging them. Do not use excessive force when opening and closing sliding furniture parts. In order to prevent the deformation of the hinged drawers of cabinets and other furniture doors, furniture doors and drawers should be closed without noise and kept closed. Do not close furniture doors and drawers with a greater pulling power than they are installed (for mechanisms with pulling).

Do not use the furniture as a step-up or as a support and do not climb on it.

Stains are easily removed by cleaning with a clean cloth dampened in water. Wipe the wetted surface thoroughly with a clean, dry cloth.

Metal surfaces should be cleaned with special cleaning agents that do not contain solid particles and bleaching properties. After cleaning with household chemical cleaning products, wipe the surface with a clean cloth moistened with water and wipe with a dry cloth.

Clean chrome or stainless steel surfaces only with specially designed cleaning agents. Long-term storage of furniture metal finishes or individual mechanisms and accessories in a humid environment can cause corrosion.

It is necessary to protect the furniture from mechanical damage, do not use sharp objects to clean the furniture.

It must be remembered that the doors of many wardrobes and chests of drawers only open at an angle of 90°, so you should not try to open the door at a greater angle, as this may damage the hinges.

After a certain period of operation, some mechanical parts of the furniture (hinges, lifting mechanisms, drawer fasteners) may lose the optimal adjustment made during furniture assembly and lubrication. The furniture will function properly if the hinges are adjusted in time or the guides are lubricated with paraffin or other material with similar properties. If the threaded joints loosen, they must be tightened periodically.

2. Furniture facades

The facade of the furniture performs a decorative function, so the exterior of the product is evaluated visually under normal conditions, at a distance of at least 100 cm and at an angle of 90° to the inspected surface of the product, the maximum duration of the inspection is 30 seconds. If no defects are noticed on the surface of the facade during the inspection, then such a facade is considered suitable for operation.

It is recommended to remove the protective film (if any) when the furniture is fully assembled. The protective film protects against scratches during transport and collection of furniture.

Laminated chipboard (LMDP) furniture is adversely affected by direct contact with water. When looking after furniture made of LMDP, the most important attention must be paid to the edges (edge) of the panel, because the water that can enter through them can "swell" the panel itself. When water or other liquid is spilled, it just needs to be wiped up quickly. Water left for a longer time can seep through the edges of the panel and deform the surface of the panel.


Laminated particle board (LMDP) is flammable and should be kept away from direct fire. Do not place the furniture too close to the fireplace or air conditioner vent, as the material may be deformed or the finish of the furniture may be damaged.

Cleaning furniture may leave microscopic marks on its surface. Their visibility depends on the surface color and lighting. Such traces do not interfere with the intended use of the varnished surface. What's more, they cannot be avoided during long-term use, as is the case with other shiny lacquered surfaces, such as in cars. The company does not accept claims due to the appearance of such marks on the surface.

2.1. Facades made of solid wood and covered with wood veneer


First of all, you need to remember that wood is a natural material growing in nature. The color and texture of the wood gives uniqueness to every kitchen or individual furniture surface. It is characteristic of wood that the texture and color vary under different lighting conditions, so this phenomenon is considered completely normal. This only confirms the high quality of the materials and cannot be the basis for making a claim. Like other natural materials, wood is affected by excessively wet or dry weather. Although covered with quality paint, wood can swell or shrink. The kitchen should be installed in a room that maintains an average temperature and relative humidity.


Facades made of solid wood and MDF panels, covered with natural wood veneer, are sensitive to direct sunlight and direct rays from light sources. As a result of exposure to these rays, the color saturation may change (the varnish used for processing the facades may darken a little, or the facade may lighten). The change in shade and color intensity is most often seen in facades made of so-called "red" wood species. Facades made using the bark of the roots of valuable species of trees can age naturally, "veins" can appear on these facades. This is a normal reaction of the material.

The facades of kitchen furniture should be cleaned in the direction of the wood fiber structure, because this way the facade is cleaned better without clogging the smallest recesses of the massif structure.

The only protection for the facade of furniture made of solid wood can be a special wax designed specifically for this type of material and natural wood surface care products containing palm or paraffin oil.

It is forbidden to wash the facades of solid wood and veneer with large amounts of water, as blisters may appear on the surface of the wood and the surface may peel off from the main part. Such surfaces can be cleaned with a cloth moistened in a neutral liquid soap solution and well wrung out. After wiping the surface with a damp cloth, it should be wiped dry immediately. Excess moisture entering the interior of the facade through the joints can cause microcracks. To avoid this, the facade must be drained. Fats and other very dirty stains must not be allowed to dry on the surface of the facade, as in these places irremovable stains can form on the wood or wood veneer.

The surface of natural wood must be protected from impact, mechanical damage, and sharp objects. Do not allow surfaces to rub against metal objects.

Wooden surfaces and facades with natural veneer inserts must be protected from any aggressive substances (thinners, gasoline, acids, acetone, etc.) coming onto them.

2.2. Painted and varnished facades

The appearance of painted or varnished elements of kitchen furniture made of MDF board may change over time due to exposure to aggressive environments (high and low temperatures, long-term exposure to direct sunlight, steam, etc.) and due to the cleaning agents and methods you use to care for these surfaces.

Painted surfaces must be protected from any aggressive liquids (thinners, benzine, acids, acetone, etc.). Abrasive agents, detergents not intended for the care of painted surfaces, strong solvents and acids, as well as hard sponges are not suitable for facade care. Do not use detergents containing chlorine. Painted and varnished surfaces must be protected from impacts and sharp objects, as even a light impact with an object on the painted surface can leave dents.

Periodically clean the surface with a soft cloth and be sure to use cleaning products specifically designed for the products. Wipes or rags used for the maintenance of painted and varnished surfaces cannot contain abrasive substances. Special polishing liquids can be used for the maintenance of varnished furniture surfaces, which usually also clean the surface. Polishing liquids that are not intended for contact with food products cannot be used for polishing kitchen furniture. A difference in color may be noticeable when replacing or adding furniture elements, but this is not considered a sign of low-quality furniture.

3. Table tops and wall panels from LMDP

Countertops made of laminated MDP (wood chipboard) are the working surface in the kitchen. The materials from which they are made are specially designed for short-term contact with moisture. However, the joints of the countertops are not resistant to moisture. It is categorically forbidden to damage the protective waterproofing layer on the joints of the countertops and the joints of the countertops with the sink and the stove. If the waterproofing layer is damaged, the joint must be treated with a silicone-based sealant.

Short-term contact of the tabletop surface with splashes of boiling water or hot food will not damage the tabletop itself, but spots may form in the contact areas. Spots on which hot food has come into contact should be cleaned immediately with a cloth moistened in a weak alkaline liquid (liquid soap, etc.). Do not place hot objects (teapots, pans, irons, etc.) on the table tops. Use special heat-insulating pads. Exposure to high temperatures may melt or deform the surface.

Do not thaw frozen food on the tabletop or keep very cold items on the surface for a long time. Due to the high temperature contrast, the surface may peel off.

Do not pierce or cut products on the surface of the tabletop, or rub the tabletop with a hard object. Be sure to use special cutting tables for these purposes.

The sealant glue crystallizes and hardens within a day after the tabletop is installed, so it is forbidden to use the tabletop during this period. This ensures a reliable connection between the countertop and the sink.

Take precautions when using glossy countertops. Traces of use (for example, scratches on the surface from pushing dishes) will be more noticeable than on matte surfaces. The bottom of earthenware and porcelain dishes is usually not polished. Pushing such a container on the tabletop can cause scratches and scuffs. Such scratches and abrasions do not interfere with the intended use of the tabletop, they inevitably occur during the operation of the tabletop, so they cannot be the basis for a claim.

3.1. Countertops and wall panels made of stone mass

Stone mass countertops are resistant even to intense mechanical impact, light and household substances, including weak acids, as well as short-term exposure to temperatures up to +150°С.

Do not make sudden blows with sharp objects. This can scratch the surface of the countertop.

Do not place objects on the surface of the product that can heat up the surface of the tabletop to a temperature of more than +120°С.

It is not recommended to place dishes with a damaged bottom on the work surface, as this can damage the polishing.

Stoneware products are recommended to be cleaned with a soft sponge or cloth, using household detergents. Do not use metal scrubbers and detergents containing abrasive particles. This can damage the surface polish.

In the case of minor polishing damage (fading), it is recommended to use a standard polishing agent.

In case of significant external damage - deep scratches, dents and cracks - it is recommended to contact the manufacturer's specialists, who will fully restore the external appearance without disassembling the product.

Stone products require minimal maintenance. Properly maintained stone mass will be as beautiful after a long time as it was at the beginning of operation.

Acrylic stone is resistant to temperatures from -30°С to +120°С, short-term exposure to temperatures up to +200°С, non-flammable. However, hot dishes removed from stoves or ovens should be placed on heat-resistant trays. A sudden temperature difference is not allowed because, as in the case of any solid material, the integrity of the material may be damaged (cracks may appear).

Long-term exposure to aggressive chemicals on stone products is prohibited. If such substances, including solvents, metal cleaners, substances containing methylene chloride, acidic cleaners, come into contact with the stone worktop or sink, immediately wash these areas with plenty of soapy water.

It is forbidden to place the entire weight of the body on the products made of stone mass, because the design of the products is not designed for such a load.

When pouring hot water into stone sinks, the cold water tap must be turned off first.

The stone mass is an easily reproducible material, as it has a uniform structure and color throughout its thickness. Most damages, including those caused by strong impacts, high temperatures or chemical exposure, can usually be repaired on site by restoring the original smooth and hygienic hard surface.

3.2 Table tops and wall panels from Compact HPL

Always use a cutting board (do not use a knife and/or other sharp tools on the workpiece

Use only soft sponges, do not use rough sponges for cleaning surfaces;

Do not scratch the tabletop with objects with sharp corners, as this can damage the surface;

Do not climb on the table top or keep heavy objects on it, possible weight up to 100 kg;

Clean oil or other greasy product stains, markers and paint stains with hot water and
with household soap, then dry with a clean cloth;

Food residues, liquids such as: wine, milk, coffee, tea, etc. clean with a damp cloth
and then dry with a clean, soft cloth (a micro cloth is recommended);

Clean cosmetics, nail polish, hair care products with a cloth soaked in alcohol,
then rinse the area with cold water and dry with a clean, soft cloth
(a micro cloth is recommended);

We do not recommend placing compact hpl on heated surfaces. Maximum permissible temperature
(depends on the selected type of surfaces) for dry heat is 180°C;

4.  Lifting and pushing mechanisms

Pull-out kitchen furniture drawers must be loaded evenly, ensuring the same load on the sliding parts (guides). It is recommended to place items on the shelves in accordance with the following principle: the heaviest items are closer to the edge (drawer walls), the lighter items are closer to the center.

It is not allowed to exceed the 5 kg load of the bottom of push-out kitchen furniture drawers made of MDP, the 20 kg load of metal drawers (metabox), the 30 kg load of tandem boxes; permitted shelf load (in cabinets, racks) of 10 kg. The total load of one hanging cabinet cannot exceed 70 kg.

Do not close furniture doors and drawers with a greater pulling power than they are installed (for mechanisms with pulling).

5. Glass products

It should be remembered that glass is a fragile material, so glass products can break from both dynamic (impact, fall, etc.) and static (excessive load on shelves, sudden temperature changes) impact. Furniture doors with glass elements should be made carefully, glass shelves should not be overloaded. Glass surfaces should be protected from contact with hard, heavy objects.

Special means for cleaning glass must be used for cleaning glass elements. Do not use tools containing abrasive materials, as well as sponges with a working surface made of metal shavings or fibers. When cleaning the glass shelves, it is recommended to take them out of the cabinets, because the glass cleaning agent that got on the furniture body or facade can damage their surface.

6. Furniture

After a certain period of operation, the mechanical elements of the furniture (hinges, guides, lifting mechanisms) must be lubricated and properly adjusted again. This is signaled by squeaking, doors that are difficult to open or drawers that are pulled out, etc. If you notice these changes in the operation of the mechanisms, you do not need to use very strong force to open or close them. In order for all mechanisms to work properly, it is necessary to adjust the hinges and lubricate the guides in time.

7. Warranty conditions

Furniture warranty does not apply in the following cases:

  • If the furniture was transported independently.

  • If the furniture is assembled independently and unskilled.

  • If the furniture is not used for its intended purpose.

  • If the operating conditions of the furniture are not observed.

  • If the furniture structure is changed independently.

  • If the furniture was independently repaired or the furniture was independently disassembled, transported to another room and reassembled.

  • If the sliding and closing/opening mechanisms are not used properly.

  • If a foreign object gets into the sliding and closing/opening mechanisms.

  • If the maximum permissible load for mechanisms and products was exceeded, which caused deformation of the mechanism or the facade and/or body of the product.

  • The manufacturer does not repair facades, details and mechanisms with visible mechanical damage that occurred after the signing of the furniture acceptance act at his own expense.

  • The manufacturer does not repair facades, furniture mechanisms and accessories at his own expense in case of corrosion, if they are not protected against corrosion. Note: furniture mechanisms and accessories are protected against corrosion if specified in the specification.

  • If the requirements and recommendations given in this user and furniture maintenance manual are not followed.

ATTENTION!!! The manufacturer does not accept claims about the swelling of parts from LMDP, because the parts swell only due to incorrect operation of the furniture.
