Colour of the Month: Kitchen Cabinets in Terre D’Egypte by Farrow & Ball

Autumn is well and truly upon us; and as such it seems only reasonable to dedicate October’s ‘colour of the month’ to this truly beautiful time. This month’s top pick is awarded to Farrow & Ball’s Terre D’Egypte – a colour stemming from the popular terracotta shade. A mixture of brown, orange and red and suitable for almost any home décor, it is a colour that remains fashionable all year round.

We are proud to use paints supplied by Farrow & Ball, for several reasons; the fact that these paints are water-based is a real bonus, because these colours are not only eco-friendly, but also allow the stunning grain pattern to shine through our customers’ painted wood kitchen doors. Furthermore, Terre D’Egypte’s natural tone creates a calm and welcoming atmosphere without compromising on luxury or sophistication – ideal for both traditional and modern style oak kitchens. Use it boldly as an accent colour by painting just one wall and decorate the room with matching furniture and accessories, or create a tonal colour scheme by utilising similar, warm shades throughout – this can transform any cold, north-facing room you may have in your house.

Terracotta has proved enduringly popular in both décor and fashion alike. Famous designers such as Stella McCartney and brands like Hermès of Paris have used terracotta shades within their Spring/Summer 2013 ‘ready to wear’ collection, something that is set to continue into the Autumn/Winter fashion picks as well.

So, as the leaves continue to fall around us, there’s no better time to stay connected with nature and bring autumn’s beautiful colours into your home. Keep your house warm and cosy this season. For more information about our cabinet colour range, please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

Solid Oak Kitchens: Top Cabinet Tip for October

Posted by admin on October 17, 2013 at 12:33 pm. Filed under: Products
Belfast sink cabinet

The diverse range of products available at Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets means that we can accommodate any kitchen cabinet requirement. We value all of our cabinets equally, but sometimes one deserves a little more attention and this month it is a particularly special one.

This month we are shining the spotlight on our specialist Belfast sink cabinet. Sitting beneath a Belfast sink, this solid oak cabinet is practical and simply beautiful to look at. Available in several widths, this sink can accommodate various bowl heights (up to 270mm). But the benefits don’t stop there! This cabinet makes a fantastic storage facility, too: from pots and pans to washing up utensils, its uses are unlimited.

You are also welcome to purchase a matching oak kitchen door, which makes the perfect finishing touch to this cabinet. Choose between handpainted, sanded or lacquered finishes; our favourite is probably the lacquered finish, as the innovative three coat process will seal the timber and protect it against moisture from the sink, but the choice is yours.

And don’t forget, you don’t have to have a Belfast sink to make use of this fantastic cabinet; due to its specialist design, the Belfast sink cabinets the shortest cabinet we stock, meaning that it can be an ideal option for smaller spaces.

So there you have it: we recommend taking a closer look at the Belfast sink cabinet this month, though there are plenty of others that are worthy of your attention! Our specialist cabinet collection has been designed to meet the individual needs of our customers and we are proud to be the only UK company to stock 1200mm wide cabinets as part of our standard size. Our oak cabinets are fine-quality, affordable, and are supplied flat-packed for your convenience. Construction only requires a screwdriver and a small amount of your time – it really is that simple.

September’s Top 5: Five Reasons Why Oak Cabinets Are The Right Choice

Solid Oak Base Cabinet

If you are debating whether or not to invest in some new kitchen cabinets, here are five reasons why solid wood is the best and most suitable material to choose from.

Customise your cabinets.

Our products can be suitable for any requirements: we have a number of cabinets available, including specialist base cabinets such as wine racks and Belfast sink cabinets. Furthermore, if you would like solid oak frontals for your cabinets too, we have a number of finishes available – keep your kitchen traditional with lacquered doors or bring some colour to your kitchen by having them delicately hand painted to match the room décor.

Durable.

Extremely strong and durable, oak is able to withstand many typical kitchen conditions that other materials may not. From being exposed to steam from cooking, to changes in humidity and temperature, oak cabinets can hold for long periods of time – they are a lifelong investment.

Easy to maintain.

Our cabinets become virtually stain resistant once they have been lacquered, so little maintenance is required after installation. A soft cloth and small amount of warm, soapy water is all that is needed to clean and keep them in excellent condition – simple and easy.

An appealing material to use.

Still prominent through painted frontals, oak’s grain pattern is beautiful and its natural qualities cannot be recreated in any other way. Whilst most materials deteriorate with age, this timber will mature and develop over time, adding character and warmth into your kitchen.

A great investment.

Our solid oak cabinets are competitively priced so make an excellent investment. They come with a five year manufacturer’s warranty and we are confident you will be impressed with the quality of the material. Sourced from forests and companies with established replanting schemes, we have a strict environmental policy to ensure sustainable development continues for years to come.

So there are just a few great things about solid oak kitchen cabinets. For further information regarding our range of products available, please do not hesitate to e-mail or phone us – we would be happy to help.
