Modern wood kitchen doors typically have a flat yet textured surface finish. This produces an entirely different look from a traditional County or Shaker wood kitchen door. Along with their stylish and contemporary appearance, modern wood kitchen furniture brings character, definition and an appreciable solidity 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 wide range of possible kitchen looks, which can be perfectly tailored to suit the needs and preferences of the homeowner. LWK Kitchens have modern wood kitchen doors available in real wood, gloss real wood, rough cut and wood effect kitchen finishes:
As one of nature's most indelible, 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 finish 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 contrasting materials and colours, such as a smooth white gloss laminate door. Such popular blends are simultaneously eye-catching yet elegant!
For maximum stability, strength and durability, our modern solid 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.See Our Range
Our collection of high gloss wood kitchen doors prove a welcome addition to any kitchen design. They effect a solid wood kitchen look, complete with an appealing and lustrous shine. During manufacture, the gloss veneer is engineered using 3mm slices of real wood which are adhered to a synthetic core. This process takes place to fully eliminate any warping of the solid wood. This is key for wood intended for kitchen use as warping can occur through exposure to variations in temperature and humidity. Once the veneer is created the gloss reflective quality is introduced via a multi-coat spray lacquer process. Utilising robotic technology the doors are spray coated five times to produce an excellent depth of colour. All of exceptional quality and aesthetically stunning, our gloss wood kitchen colours range from the pale and interesting, to dark and compelling. As well as this, our gloss kitchen veneers also offer the benefit of being easy to maintain and are available at an affordable price.See Our Range
A cost-effective option, our wood-effect, or matt wood laminate kitchen range optimises the high-quality associations of a wood kitchen whilst minimising the price. This finish closely resembles the natural appearance of wood for a warm, stylish and enjoyable living space. Available in nine 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 pale Light Acacia wood effect door is exquisite combined with a gloss white kitchen finish. Alternatively the dark Terra oak wood laminate in unison with a rich Basalt grey tone is equally magnificent.
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.See Our Range
Appealing to the touch as much as the eye, the distinct rough cut, or cross-cut kitchen finish is coarser than other wood grained kitchen doors. Certainly not enough to cause splinters or snag clothing, but instead the lightly rough cut doors exude 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.See Our Range
Clients tell us when they think of wood kitchens it is often the traditional Shaker, or Country kitchen look that first springs to mind. Whether a rich dark Oak, painted wood kitchen, or else warm and comforting rustic tones, traditional wood kitchens are defined by their details. This typically includes framed doors or panelled woods which add depth to the setting. Further embellishments frequently 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.
Traditional painted veneer kitchen units exude the same look as traditional real wood kitchen doors, including the same grain patterns. However they have painted door fronts, available in a vast choice of colours. This allows homeowners to achieve the exact look and feel they desire for their home. Opt for the Cream or Saffron Yellow painted veneer to create a warm, rustic, welcoming atmosphere. Alternatively, the Crimson red wood kitchen door offers a traditional sense of luxury via its intense yet majestic colour tone. Or why not create a contemporary design rooted in country house style? This might include the Agate Blue painted wood door with a modern Cornwall Oak wood finish. With over eleven different hues to choose from within our collection of painted wood doors, you will certainly be spoilt for choice.See Our Range
The traditional wood-effect kitchen doors replicate the appreciable look of real wood traditional kitchen doors. Whilst a close resemblance, these doors are instead engineered from a laminate finish. This makes them a much more cost-effective option for this kitchen style. Instead of real wood, the wood-effect doors are manufactured by pressing a wood-look laminate over a pre-machined synthetic core and adhering the layers together. The doors are expressly designed to prevent delamination of the foil from the substrate, and have tightly sealed edges that prevent any moisture ingress (from steam) into the door.
The end result is a long-lasting, hard wearing finish. And the quality of our traditional wood-look laminate kitchens is such that many of our clients can't tell the difference between these and our more expensive doors.See Our Range
A quintessentially English heritage kitchen, the traditional Real Oak kitchen design originates from Victorian times. Oak kitchens are synonymous with a sophisticated feel, and in present day the shape and style of this long-established kitchen door remains. Within our collection it is identical to the traditional painted wood doors, although made from Oak rather than Ash, and the surface of the traditional real oak isn’t painted. This kitchen finish is still as traditional in style as kitchens can get, and capped with crown mouldings and decorative fluted pillars, the overall look generated is highly elegant. Combined with a warm, rustic, welcoming atmosphere this ensures the traditional real oak kitchen makes a stunning addition for the home.See Our Range
