Nikkita Palmer Designs offers a 6 month aftercare programme to monitor any movement within the material. Depending on the wood used, your product may move, change or split, this usually happens initially and if exposed to different temperatures and environments. This is not classed as a manufacturing fault and Nikkita Palmer Designs holds no responsibility for natural changes to your product. Natural changes do not warrant a replacement of any furniture or parts. Your aftercare programme is there to make minor changes to natural movement and includes fixes such as filling, planing and sanding in order to ensure your product is sound and long lasting.

LIABILITY

 

We work extremely hard in our studio to remove any splits, cracks, splinters, sharp products or nails from the material, however, when working with reclaimed materials, this is the nature of the product. Nikkita Palmer Designs holds no responsibility for any damage or injury caused to any persons, products or goods in the use, moving or misuse of the product. 

 

All the goods from our workshop and studio are lovingly handcrafted, up cycled or recycled by us.

Nikkita Palmer Designs accepts no responsibility for any cost or inconvenience to the client for delay in manufacture and completion. 

 

Measurements will always be confirmed either in the form of a written invoice or drawing on request of the deposit payment.

Measurements made by the client and relayed to our team are deemed to be correct and Nikkita Palmer Designs holds no responsibility for any incorrect measurements. Additional charges may be necessary if changes need to be made in this instance. 

 

Due to the nature of the materials and finishes used, our furniture and products are not fire resistant. Nikkita Palmer Designs holds no responsibility to any fire damage or destruction of goods in the event of a fire or direct source of heat. Relevant insurance policies should be taken out by the client to cover such occurrences. 

 

CARING FOR YOUR PRODUCT

 

Wipe any spills from the wood immediately.

 

Do not use bleach, heavy chemicals or abrasive cleaning materials on the surface. 

 

Try to clean the entire surface rather than patches to avoid discolouring. 

 

Do not leave the furniture in direct heat or sunlight, this will result in shrinking and colour changes. We always suggest you try to keep the furniture at a constant temperature as extreme changes will effect the material. 

 

Always protect your furniture with coasters and placemats. 

 

In the initial stages, waxed furniture may take several days / weeks to cure, try to avoid placing items on the surface until completely dry and soaked in, doing so may result in discolouration of goods. 

 

It is always best to discuss with Nikkita any care techniques as it will differ depending on how the piece has been treated in the workshop. Stain removal and the reapplication of finishing treatments is available at an additional cost. 

 

We always suggest you use furniture floor pads on the base of the furniture to avoid damage to flooring surfaces.

RECLAIMED WOOD AND CHANGES TO YOUR PRODUCT

Reclaimed wood holds its character through imperfections and we try our best to keep this in our products in the making process as they are seen as aesthetic beauty. We are more than happy to supply images or physical samples to give an idea of surface quality, however, with each piece being unusual and different in terms or colouring and character, physical furniture pieces may vary from samples. 

Reclaimed wood will become more beautiful and tactile with age and use if cared for correctly. 

As a natural product, wood moves with humidity and heat, cracking is natural and not classed as a defect. Depending on the wood used, your product will move and change, this usually happens initially and if exposed to different temperatures and environments. This is not classed as a manufacturing fault and Nikkita Palmer Designs holds no responsibility for natural changes to your product. 

Colour changes may occur initially, again, this will depend on the environment, temperature, cleaning products used and absorption of any finishing products. 

We work extremely hard in our studio to remove any splits, cracks, splinters, sharp products or nails from the material, however, when working with reclaimed materials, this is the nature of the product.
