Wood & Shaker Kitchens

With its assuring warmth and available in a multitude of tones, textures and grains, wood kitchen finishes make an excellent choice for the home. Whilst entirely different in look, this is as true for traditional wood kitchens as for modern and contemporary wood kitchen styles. Contemporary 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 can help you achieve the wood kitchen look that is just right for you. We know exactly which wood kitchen finishes will produce the look you want to achieve. We understand which grains add character, and which colour tones will dominate or else effect a more understated look. We also fully understand which styles will beautifully compliment other furniture materials and colours within the home.

Modern Wood Kitchens

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.

Modern Real Wood Kitchens

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 oak veneer with contrasting materials and colours, such as a white glass 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.

Modern Wood Effect Kitchens

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 numerous 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 oak basalt  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.

Traditional Wood Kitchens

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 Wood Effect Kitchens

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.
