Why Choose A Wood Kitchen?
Available in a wide range of tones, textures and grains, wood kitchen finishes make an excellent choice for the home. Meeting current demand for modern wood kitchen accents, LWK Kitchens have an extensive range of wood kitchen finishes to suit all different spaces, tastes and budgets. Whether for a country property or contemporary home extension, by itself or in a multi tone arrangement, we know exactly which wood kitchen finishes will produce the look you want to achieve. We understand which grains add character, which colour tones will dominate, and which will create a softer, more understated look. We also fully understand which styles will beautifully compliment other furniture materials and colours within the home.
Whether it’s a real wood veneer or laminate, modern wood kitchen doors typically have a flat but textured surface finish. This produces an entirely different look from a traditional Country or Shaker kitchen door. Along with their stylish and contemporary appearance, modern wood kitchen furniture brings character, definition and an assuring warmth into any kitchen setting. What’s more a highly versatile nature means these doors can be successfully blended with other kitchen colours, styles and textures. For kitchen design this ensures a diverse range of possible kitchen looks, which can be expertly tailored to suit the needs and preferences of the homeowner.
Wood doors are very on trend for kitchens right now, particularly in two tone arrangements to highlight specific features. For example, modern woods will often frame contrasting gloss or matt kitchen furniture, including kitchen islands, as well as for highlighting integrated open shelving. LWK Kitchens have modern wood kitchen doors available in real wood, gloss wood , rough cut and wood effect kitchen finishes as can be seen below.
As one of nature’s most beautiful and tough materials, a solid modern wood veneer makes for a stunning and timeless kitchen design. A kitchen made entirely from a modern real wood veneer carries a hard to beat air of stylish quality and opulence. Alternatively, you might combine a solid, light timber like the Light Wild Oak with a contrasting material such as the smooth Polar white satin lacquer door. Such popular blends are simultaneously eye-catching yet elegant! For maximum stability, strength and durability, our modern real wood kitchens are sourced from the finest raw materials. Second to this, they undergo a sophisticated and carefully crafted manufacture process; this ensures these solid wood units, complete with their rich, warm and tactile surfaces, make for high quality and long-lasting kitchens.
Our wood-effect, or matt wood laminate kitchen range optimises the high-quality associations of a real wood kitchen yet represents a more cost-effective option. This finish closely resembles the natural appearance of wood for a warm, stylish and enjoyable living space. Available in twelve sublime wood effect finishes, our wood laminate kitchen doors make a fantastic addition for the home. These doors also have a highly versatile quality, ensuring a perfect fit when combined with other finishes and styles. For example, the dark Terra oak wood laminate is a smart matt wood option we have worked with in many designs, successfully teaming it with white, basalt grey, cashmere, steel blue or even red kitchen doors. The wood effect kitchen door is engineered by pressing a pre-finished, textured laminate onto a synthetic core substrate. These layers are then pressed and adhered together using PUR-bonding technology, which is both water and heat resistant. This protects the doors, ensuring they are suitable and durable throughout everyday kitchen use.
Appealing to the touch as much as the eye, the rough cut, or cross-cut kitchen finish is coarser than other wood grained kitchen doors, which gives it a distinct charm and character. The coarse wood kitchen effect is created using sophisticated cutting tools. These saw across the wood grain in both directions, producing a richly textured, rough-sawn look. The doors have an unfinished and somewhat rustic feel, yet are very modern and stylish in appearance. Either by itself within a kitchen design or else with contrasting tones and finishes, the rough cut kitchen finish is highly compelling and sure to impress. It is also hard-wearing, robust and a practical option for everyday kitchen use.
Shaker kitchen doors are defined by a simple central panel, free of any further adornment. They create a contemporary kitchen look which is currently, very on trend, particularly in darker kitchen tones. Our Shaker kitchen doors are available in matt laminate, laminated ash effect lacquer, and our Ash lacquer real wood kitchen veneer. With this last option the Shaker doors have a subtle grain effect running across their surface, creating a very elegant and tasteful kitchen finish. Across all ranges our Shaker kitchen doors are available within an array of attractive colour options.
Traditional and Country kitchens are defined by their details. This typically includes beaded framed doors and panelled woods which add depth to the setting. Further embellishments may include intricate cornices, pelmets, balustrades and flying shelves over windows. Such details layered together ensure traditional wood kitchens go the full distance, making an undeniably beautiful addition for any home. Our traditional and country kitchen range includes coloured wood kitchen doors with a painted wood grain effect. Opt for the Cream or Taupe painted veneer to create a warm, rustic, welcoming atmosphere, or else why not create a contemporary Velvet Blue design rooted in country house style? With so many different hues to choose from within our collection of coloured wood kitchen doors, you will certainly be spoilt for choice.
