If you’ve emerged a little late from winter hibernation with a craving for some real wood kitchen cabinets, then you’ll be pleased to know that there are a few days left in which to take advantage of our fantastic March Sale.
Until the final hours of the 31st of March, we’re offering 10% off all cabinets, doors and related accessories (note that samples, wood worktops and worktop accessories are not included in this offer). If you were already a fan of our competitive pricing then a treat awaits you: you’ll be amazed at the spring savings on offer.
So, if you’ve been pondering that kitchen cabinet makeover for the last few weeks, now is the time to take advantage of this unmissable incentive. Simply enter ‘SPRING2014’ during the online checkout and discounts will be automatically applied; if ordering over the phone just let one of our helpful advisors know when placing the order.
If you can’t quite make up your mind what to order – or if you haven’t yet seen our solid oak kitchen cabinets in all their glory – we welcome you to visit our Gloucester-based showroom for a tour: our showroom contains nine full kitchen displays that incorporate a stunning range of cabinetry and solid oak doors. We’re open from 9am-5pm during the week and 10am-2pm at the weekend – but hurry, this is the last weekend for you to take advantage of this splendid offer.
Spring is here: the days are getting lighter, the evenings longer and the sun has finally returned to bathe us in dazzling natural light. March’s ‘Colour of the Month’ comes as a complement to the natural world in the form of Farrow & Ball’s Pale Powder – a much lighter shade of green than the popular ‘Vert De Terre’ from the Accents range.
Perfect for east-facing rooms, Pale Powder is an ideal accent to the blue hue that often comes from early-morning light, whilst not appearing too cold and retaining the warmth of the dawn. Combining cool blue-greens like this shade with wood of darker shades (such as our walnut or iroko wooden kitchen worktops) can be valuable, and will help achieve the best balance of brightness throughout the day.
Firmly in the realms of ‘duck egg’ colouring, Pale Powder can look closer to blue in some lights, and pale green at other times of day, adding real airiness to any solid wood kitchens that aren’t blessed with south-facing light.
If you’re interested in seeing what the finished colour looks like outside of your computer’s screen, we recommend taking advantage of our great-value sample service – or even better, pop in to our Gloucester showroom and familiarise yourself with our entire Farrow & Ball collection.
Here at Solidwoodkitchencabinets.co.uk, we like to keep up with the trends. As such, we’ve been consulting design resources carefully over the last six months, trying to envisage the key looks for spring and summer kitchens in 2014.
Though there are a variety of different aesthetics that are popping up in glossy magazines, television programmes and on the catwalk, there is one theme that seems to tie them all together: ‘Transformation and Transportation’. Whether you wish to go to the natural world, to an exotic country, or even back to your childhood, the hottest interior styles aim to take you there. Read on for more information regarding how this can be achieved with solid wood kitchens…
In terms of materials, experts advise prioritising the natural over the artificial. Style gurus at Trendbible.com advise that ‘this trend is the antidote to quick-fix culture, it replenishes and embraces the slow burn, mindfulness and honesty of bare, raw materials […] the home becomes a reflection of our desire to be closer to nature, so natural materials are introduced in their raw state’. By utilising solid oak cabinetry throughout your kitchen, you can nod to the natural trend whilst enjoying the superb quality afforded by this wonderful material. You can also introduce a hint of the exotic – another popular look – by accessorising with dramatic solid wood worktops and plinths: zebrano and iroko work particularly well with oak doors.
In terms of colour, a sense of whimsy prevails. Light, pastel colours – spring-like in essence – with a ‘chalky’ feel are popular, along with the odd frivolous pop of primary colour to create unexpected bursts of vitality. We recommend pairing hand-finished frontals in Parma Grey, Cinder Rose or Mizzle with dramatic accent shades – Farrow & Ball’s Yellowcake or St Giles Blue would be good choices.
If you’re not sure which colour to go for, never fear: we have collated a standard collection of Farrow & Ball shades, specifically chosen with the aim of complementing oak cabinets. Consult these at your leisure by visiting our kitchen unit doors pages or test your colour scheme out for yourself by ordering some samples: our door samples are affordably-priced, available in all house finishes and are made to order.
The crocuses are coming out, lambs are leaping in the fields, and the sun has even shown its face once or twice… the UK is suddenly feeling spring-like, and so are we!
The sight of blossom on a tree or verdant hillsides often inspires us to inject a similar freshness into our interiors – and solid oak kitchens are commonly top of the list. However, you may worry that investing in new hardwood kitchen cabinets or oak doors will be too costly; fortunately our March sale is here to help you ‘spring’ into action.
We are improving on our already competitive prices by offering a 10% discount across all cabinets, doors and related accessories (samples, wooden worktops and worktop accessories are not included within this promotion). To enjoy the wonderful savings on offer, simply enter the code ‘Spring2014’ at the online checkout or mention this over the phone when placing your order. With our fabulous delivery service you could receive your discounted kitchen within a matter of weeks – but be sure to order before the end of March to take advantage of the promotion!
Our showroom is a convenient place to start if you’d like to gather some ideas for your kitchen redesign; we’re open between 9am-5pm on weekdays and 10am-2pm at the weekend and are happy to advise on anything from the sale to door colours to handles. We look forward to seeing you.
