Solid Wood Kitchens for Christmas

Are you thinking of splashing out on a kitchen so that you’ll be ready to impress this Christmas? If you are planning on ordering one of our solid wood kitchens, but are still undecided about which worktop would work best, or which fabulous Farrow & Ball colour to choose for your cabinet doors, then now is the time to place an order for a kitchen sample or two.

To get your kitchen order in time for Christmas, you’ll need to place your order by Friday the 12th of December (depending on which components you require). To view all of our Christmas delivery cut-off dates, please read our Delivery Details Page. Because of this necessary delivery date cut-off, we recommend ordering samples this week to avoid disappointment.

At Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets we offer a full online sample service , featuring solid oak 18mm thick base cabinet panels, miniature oak cabinet door samples available in a natural or painted finish, and a full range of solid wood worktop samples.

Cabinet samples are supplied as a 160mm x 80mm x 18mm piece of solid oak, lacquered using the same process as our full-size cabinet panels. These samples cost just £5 each, including VAT and next-day delivery.

Our worktop samples measure approximately 200mm x 150mm x 40mm (or 27mm – depending on the timber species), and are oiled on one face and the edges, in order to represent the finished product. Again, the cost is just £5 including next-day delivery (if you order before 11am).

Our 355mm x 296mm cabinet door samples are available in either traditional or shaker designs in a natural finish – either sanded or lacquered, in order for you to visualise the finished product and the inherent beauty of solid oak’s grain. Alternatively, you can order our miniature doors in one of 21 bespoke Farrow & Ball colours. These items are priced very keenly at only £20 including 48-hour delivery.

The best part? If you go on to order your kitchen from us, we’ll refund you the cost of the samples. For further information, visit our samples page to learn more – and ‘try before you buy’ with minimal cost or fuss!

 

November’s Kitchen Gadget of the Month

Posted by admin on November 19, 2014 at 11:21 am. Filed under: Products
The Rollie Eggmaster

Kitchen gadgets seem to get more exciting with every passing month, and this month’s featured foody device is no exception.

The Rollie Eggmaster has already been a big hit across the pond in America, and it’s now caught on in the British Isles, too; making it easier than ever to whip up starters, canapés and much more.

Don’t be fooled by the Rollie’s simple appearance; it’s actually a vertical non-stick grill that can whip up salmon pinwheels, egg and bacon bites or mini tortilla wraps in mere minutes.

You don’t have to be some kind of culinary expert, either. The Rollie makes it easy to create quick yet satisfying meals and desserts, and its configuration means that the presentation is likely to be dainty and precise – meaning that your food will look as though it’s been cooked up by a real pro! It also comes with a ‘packing rod’ that enables you to cook meat or batter, thus further expanding this unique grill’s capabilities.

If this sounds like a perfect addition to your oak kitchens, you can pick up the Rollie in the UK for only £29.99 from Lakeland. We’re certainly pondering putting it on our Christmas list!

If you’ve tried the Rollie Eggmaster, or know of another gadget we should feature on a future Gadget of the Month blog, then do get in touch! We’re always keen for a chat over on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Google+.

 

Solid Oak Kitchens in Pavilion Gray: November’s Colour of the Month

Solid Oak Kitchens in Pavilion Gray

With the nights getting so cold and the rain lashing down on your window, you’d be forgiven for thinking that grey might not be the most comforting hue for your interiors.
On the contrary, grey is fast becoming one of the most fashionable colours to use in solid oak kitchens and many other living spaces. It can be a soothing, warm alternative to many of the more traditional ‘neutral’ shades.

Pavilion Gray sits somewhere in the mid-range of Farrow & Ball’s wide selection of greys, right between Elephant’s Breath (our Colour of the Month back in June) and their darker Lamp Room Gray.

Alongside crisp white accents, Pavilion Gray brings warmth to a room, peaking with a red tincture in warm winter light, and blue tones in bright summer sun. Besides its obvious companionship with New White, it sits beautifully alongside dark blues such as Farrow & Ball’s Pitch Blue, as well as dark blacks and greys.

It was reportedly Gustav III of Sweden’s favoured interior shade of grey, used widely throughout his pavilions at Haga castle during his 18th century rule, and was commonly found alongside paints mixed using natural pigments of blue and white.

Would you like to see what Pavilion Gray would look like in your home? Why not order one of our pre-painted door samples? These solid oak miniature doors are just £20 including delivery; an ideal choice if you’d like to get to know what a colour will look like in different lights and at different times of the day.
