Kitchens are at the forefront of design in 2013. Increasingly, kitchens are a place to live, with a popular move toward integrating leisure areas into kitchen design and with kitchen islands taking over from dining tables as the gastronomic centre of the house. Hand in hand with this trend comes a renewed focus on reinvention and transformation – but this does not necessarily demand a drastic revamp of your whole kitchen. Little changes are recommended to freshen your look and reposition your kitchen as the heart of the home.
The team at Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets – ever mindful of the trends – have therefore been dreaming up quick and easy ways for our customers to update their kitchens; and it struck us that a new handle might be just the trick! A handle can change the appearance of your cabinet door completely, depending on its size, material and style – but with minimal fuss and for a small price.
Fortunately here at Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets we have a fabulous range of handles for customers to peruse. We worked closely with a European handle specialist to compile our collection, which offers an outstanding level of choice – and best of all, the handles have been specifically chosen to complement solid oak frontals.
So whether you’re picking handles for the first time or simply in the mood for a change, you’re sure to be a handle to suit you: our range contains everything from knobs, cup handles, drop handles and fixed handles in stainless steel, pewter and solid wood (and more). All are available at competitive prices and on a next-day delivery service. Click here to start browsing now!
At the beginning of May we wrote about the first bank holiday and our enjoyment of some much-needed sunshine – three weeks of poor weather later, we’re now wondering if our blogging jinxed the nation! Oh well, when the skies are full of black and ominous clouds, there’s nothing like a three day weekend to lift the spirits…
Speaking of lifting the spirits, a nice new solid oak cabinet might also prove to be great ‘chicken soup for the soul’! So if you fancy doing a little online shopping, popping into our showroom or speaking with our friendly sales team, please check below for more information on when we’ll be open:
27th May Delivery: No deliveries on Bank Holiday Monday.
25th and 27th May Showroom and Sales Lines: Though we will be closed on the 26th May, our sales lines and showroom will be open for calls and visitors between 10am-2pm on Saturday and Bank Holiday Monday.

Ahoy me hearties! There’s a new trend a-brewing as the season begins to graduate from spring to summer (not that you’d know it from looking outside): it seems that designers are turning their eyes seaward for a host of nautical-themed interiors…
Colour experts Pantone have tipped royal blue as this year’s top colour so it’s no surprise that a host of blue-themed design schemes are coming into play. We’re seeing a real increase in the popularity of pale blues and duck-egg colours, which not only provide the perfect backdrop to a striking cobalt feature but also work wonderfully within the trendy ‘seaside’ kitchen. A riff on this theme – and our favourite way to make the nautical look work in a kitchen – is to pair delicate blue cabinetry with dark blue and white accessories and crockery (be sure to feature some sailor stripes if you can find them!)
Farrow & Ball’s Light Blue would be the perfect choice for such a scheme; a cool, subtle shade, Light Blue works well in both contemporary and traditional kitchens. It’s also great complement to our solid oak cabinets, and our intensive hand-finishing process ensures that your frontals will acquire a lovely blue sheen that nonetheless accentuates the oak’s natural figuring.
As Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets customers will know, we provide several specialist options to complement our great range of standard cabinets and frontals (such as Belfast sink cabinets, wine racks, corner solution cabinets, and oven housing units)… and the list is about to get even longer.
You might remember that back in March we talked about our anticipated curved door: well, it has now arrived! Yes, you heard the good news here first – this door option, designed specifically to pair with our 300mm curved cabinet, is now in stock and ready for purchase. These curved doors also come with an exciting choice of finishes: handpainted, lacquered to match the cabinet panels, or natural sanded.
Our new door option is due to be added to the website imminently, but in the meantime we welcome you to request more information or place an order by contacting the Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets team. Simply pop us an email or give us a call at 0845 22 22 990 and we’ll be happy to help.
There’s nothing like a bit of a sunshine to lift the spirits – and a bank holiday doesn’t hurt either!
However, we’re well aware that a solid wood cabinet craving might just hit over the long weekend, so we have an action plan in place: never fear, our trusty sales staff and showroom team will be here…
