Appliance Units for Solid Wood Kitchens

At Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets, we offer a comprehensive range of oak cabinetry to ensure that creating your dream kitchen is an enjoyable and easy process. No matter what kind of layout suits your kitchen design, you will no doubt be considering a range of appliances. Nothing quite beats the look of built-in appliances – particularly ovens and refrigeration.

An abundance of appliances on display can detract from the overall appeal of modern solid wood kitchens, but luckily we have a wide range of real wood kitchen cabinets that will allow these necessary appliances to blend seamlessly with your design.

If room is tight, do consider our solid oak oven housing cabinets, which are designed to fit in alongside our standard oak base cabinets, measuring H720 x W600 x D570mm. They will fit any built-in single oven measuring 600mm in width, and feature space for a single drawer underneath – perfect for oven trays – which can be paired with any of our kitchen unit doors.

More space available in your kitchen? If so, please take a look at our tall kitchen cabinets for built-in appliances. Like all our cabinets, they’re constructed from solid oak panels, and can be provided with space for either a single or double oven. These are available in two heights and – depending on your kitchen requirements – can feature a door or drawers underneath, along with a shelf above the cooker that is perfect for one of our Blum™ bi-fold door mechanisms.

Should you have any queries regarding our appliance cabinets, or if you’d like to discuss which product might be most suitable for your appliance of choice, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our phone lines are open from 9am-5.30pm on weekdays and 10am-2pm on Saturdays.

Oak Kitchens in White Tie: August’s Colour of the Month

Oak Kitchens in White Tie: August’s Colour of the Month

Choosing a perfect shade of white is perhaps one of the trickiest decisions when planning interior decoration: for though the differences may be subtle, beyond the clinical realms of pure white there is a real variety of off-white hues.

Farrow & Ball have at least 15 shades of white in their collection, but a firm favourite is the creamy white known as ‘White Tie’. Like so many of Farrow & Ball’s natural paints, White Tie can vary anywhere from a cotton-white in overcast summer skies, to a more yellowy-white on a warm summer’s evening. In neutral lighting, it sits somewhere in between the darker New White and the bright All White.

Occupying the lighter end of our ‘Pastels’ collection, it is a perfect colour for Shaker-inspired kitchens, particularly on oak kitchen doors and drawer fronts when used in a classic or country kitchen theme. Consider using it alongside darker wall colours to balance out oppressive tones, such as with dark browns for a luxurious high contrast look.

If you’d like to see an example of White Tie up-close, we have two simple options for you. First, you can purchase one of our miniature painted cabinet door kitchen samples, which are available in any of our hand-finished Farrow & Ball shades for only £20 including delivery. Alternatively, pay a visit to our Gloucester showroom where you can see nine stylish solid oak kitchens (one of which utilises White Tie as its feature colour), and discuss your kitchen project with our friendly team.

 

August’s Kitchen Gadget of the Month

The Sousvide Supreme™ SVS-10LS

Ever since Heston Blumenthal graced our screens, there’s been a positive surge in new methods of cooking. No longer are a traditional oven and stove all that may be required to prepare beautiful meals in solid oak kitchens.

This month’s must-have kitchen gadget is a favourite of Michelin Star restaurants and budding master chefs: The Sousvide Supreme™ SVS-10LS. It is a water oven that is designed especially to bring this new form of gourmet cooking into even the smallest of kitchens. Water ovens claim to be able to dramatically simplify food preparation and deliver more consistent results than any regular oven is capable of.

Sous vide is perfect for cooking meat and vegetables, producing beautifully tender meats and vegetables that have retained all of their natural flavouring. Rather than simply cooking them in water, the method of sous vide requires that you vacuum-seal the produce in a bag first. Special sealing gadgets are available, with a variety of different sized vacuum sealer bags.

In a similar fashion to a slow cooker, the gadget is designed to cook produce slowly at lower temperatures than a conventional cooker; a function that not only saves money but also enables you to cook on a timer, readying your meal with perfect timing whilst you’re out of the house.

The Sous Vide Supreme™ SVS-10LS water oven is available direct from sousvidetools.com for £349.99, along with the vacuum sealer and all the accessories you might need.

If you have found an interesting gadget or piece of kitchen tech that would suit solid wood kitchens, then please do share it with us on social media – get in touch on Facebook, Twitter or on Google+.
