How Wood Changes Color Over Time
At Gothic Furniture we are known for using unstained solid wood in our furniture. We love the colors and grains of different types of wood species as well as the durability of solid wood. Even when wood is processed and used for furniture manufacturing, it continues to be a living, breathing material that can be affected by its environment. All woods will expand and contract with changes in humidity. Wood also changes color over time as it is exposed to air and sunlight. Dark woods seem to darken more while lighter woods tend to bleach. Even a protective coating of clear finish cannot prevent color change.You will notice that color changes tend to be most noticeable during the first few months and up to a year.
Exposure to Light
It is common to see the color of wood change when exposed to UV light. Most often, the contrast is seen when a table decoration is removed and the wood under the item has its original color but the surrounding wood color has changed. To avoid this, it is recommended that you move any decorative items over the surface area of your furniture during the first year. Another good practice during the first year is to change the location of your furniture so that the color may change more uniformly.
Humidity: Wood should not be exposed to high humidity levels. As the water in the humidity evaporates, it will cause the water soluble chemicals in the wood to rise to the surface causing discoloration. Furthermore, excessive humidity may cause the wood to expand and contract that may also cause cracking. For further information, please contact us directly. We look forward to answering any of your inquiries.
