Solid wooden kitchens are becoming increasingly popular due to their elegance and timeless beauty. Suited to both modern and traditional styles; solid wood is full of character and a natural feature in itself. As well as being environmentally beneficial, solid wood gives your kitchen warmth and a welcoming atmosphere.
At Handmade Kitchen Co Essex, we are proud to offer a range of solid wooden kitchens compromising of: wooden carcasses, door fronts and frames, drawers, worktops, dovetail jointed drawer boxes and accessories. We can help you achieve a contemporary, traditional or rustic feel to complete your dream kitchen. We craft your kitchen using painted Tulip wood for doors and frames and high quality Oak or Pine for your kitchen; both offering different pros and cons.
Oak is more durable than pine and is an ideal choice for kitchens with heavy traffic and families. This strong wood is a beautiful feature with its natural grain patterns and radiating warmth. Because of its hard-wearing, long lasting qualities, oak is a practical choice for a long term investment.
Pine is not as strong and hard-wearing as oak but it fits a tighter budget. Pine kitchens are a perfect choice for those who may want to change their kitchen over time or are not looking for a long term investment. Another benefit of pine is that it can be painted to perfection, completely changing the style and giving the wood a smooth, even finish.
There is no clear winner when it comes to comparing pine and oak. Both of them are equally stylish and practical; the choice of which one depends on your needs and requirements.
Solid wooden kitchens have stood their ground for decades and prove to be one of the most popular choices of kitchen materials, they also have many benefits.
Solid wood is not just for traditional or old style kitchens, it has a natural timeless beauty that never goes out of style. There are options to highlight its natural grain for rustic and country vibes or to paint it to match your colour scheme for a contemporary look. Whatever your style, wood has no risk of being outdated.
Solid Wood is very durable and resistant to chipping, peeling and dents. This makes your kitchen have a long shelf life and any damage occurring is very easy to fix with sanding and refinishing. This enables you to keep your kitchen without the costly need of having it replaced.
Warm and Welcoming
Many kitchens made of artificial materials may sometimes appear to be cold and uninviting. A kitchen made of solid wood can give the room a warm ambience which makes you feel a lot more relaxed and homely.
Cheap and Easy to Fix
Unlike stone and synthetic materials, solid wood is very easy and cheap to fix. Dents, chips and scratches can be easily sanded down, oiled or filled in to make your kitchen look like new again. In the unfortunate event of large-scale damage, solid wood replacements are very simple and won’t break the bank.
Caring for your solid wood kitchen is extremely easy. There are no lengthy routines or high maintenance chores to keep it looking good; a simple varnish once in a while is all that is needed to help maintain its original state and beauty.
