JULY’S GADGET OF THE MONTH FOR SOLID OAK KITCHENS

Posted by admin on July 27, 2016 at 10:14 am. Filed under: General

Here at Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets®, we are always on the look-out for nifty new gadgetry for solid oak kitchens. This month we have been particularly impressed by the fantastic Nest 9 Plus from Joseph Joseph, which is ideal for kitchens with limited cupboard space.

This compact set is packed with the following food preparation essentials: a 1/6 cup, 1/4 cup, 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup, 1 cup, small mixing and measuring bowl, stainless steel mesh sieve, colander and a large, non-slip mixing bowl. This practical set of nine kitchen accessories fits neatly one inside the other, to occupy no greater space than that of the mixing bowl. Once stacked, each item snaps in securely, so as not to spill everywhere should the set be knocked over.

In addition to being immensely practical, this set also looks great, as each item comes in a bright and cheerful colour to create a rainbow effect when stacked together.

For more space-saving solutions, take a look at our range of kitchen wirework. If you are looking for more useful advice on maximising cupboard space in kitchens, we have a wealth of information on our website for you to read, such as our ‘Savvy Storage Solutions for Solid Wood Kitchens’ information guide.

If you often find yourself short on storage space in your kitchen, this is the gadget for you! Pick one up directly from Joseph Joseph for just £45.00.

 

Seaside Chic: Coastal Inspiration for Oak Kitchens

Posted by admin on July 20, 2016 at 3:11 pm. Filed under: General

Beautiful kitchens come in many forms. We know – of course – that our stunning oak kitchens are unquestionably attractive. By combining hard-wearing solid wood worktops, oak cabinetry and wooden cabinet frontals, Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets™ allows you to create a kitchen that is not only visually appealing but is also built from superior-quality materials (all of which are designed to stand the test of time). Before ordering your kitchen components, it is likely you will have decided on the style of interior you would prefer. If yours is a coastal home – or you want to experience seaside holiday vibes all year round – then do keep reading: we’ve collated an image gallery that is full of holiday vibes and fresh colour palettes, all of which are sure to delight and inspire you!


Use wooden floorboards in your solid oak kitchen to feel just like you are on a boat!

Pale blue cabinetry with white worktops looks bright and fresh, whilst the worn wood flooring is reminiscent of a ship.


All-white kitchens look incredibly eye-catching with the use of a bright and bold nautical print.

Blue and white striped bar stools add a splash of colour to this all-white kitchen, and remind us of nautical-inspired beach towels!


Industrial lighting in solid wood kitchens makes for a striking maritime-inspired feature

Industrial pendants capture the feel of the masthead lamps and oil lanterns used on old ships, and are well-balanced by metal stools in this coast kitchen.


Delicate blue wooden cabinet frontals with tongue and groove paneling creates a relaxing seaside-inspired kitchen.

We love the delicate blue-grey shade of paint used on these cabinets. For a similar effect, why not try Parma Gray by Farrow & Ball? Tongue and groove panelling is also a great choice for seaside settings.


If you fancy something a little different, ditch blue palettes in favour of exotic shades of aqua instead!

Blue is a traditional choice for coastal colour schemes – we like how the owners of this beautiful home have branched out into a green and grey palette for their kitchen. Grey cabinet fronts are very easy-on-the-eye, helping create a relaxed holiday ambience.


This solid wood kitchen belongs to one of our customers and is ideal for a beautiful coastal cottage.

This laid-back kitchen is perfect for both coastal and countryside settings. The white cabinets and oak work surfaces create a versatile look that can be altered subtly with accessories. Opt for tongue and groove end panels to enhance your seaside-inspired look.


Incorporate fabrics with seaside stripes to make every day a holiday in your solid wood kitchen.

These gorgeous striped chair covers are perfect for creating seaside vibes, and are a great choice for laid-back dining.


Evoke seaside-chic in your wooden kitchen with contrasting white and blue oak cabinets.

The owner of this kitchen has opted for deep blue painted cabinetry paired with contrasting white units, whilst the timber floors remind us of natural driftwood. A stainless steel splashback and stove give this room a contemporary twist.

To keep your kitchen looking smart and up-to-date, team crisp white cotton with soft, slouchy fabrics on your furnishings, and pair fresh whites and blues with gentle shades of brown and cream. Blue, white or grey enamel kitchen canisters work wonderfully well within this aesthetic, whilst blue and white striped rugs add a touch of nautical cool. Unless you want to introduce a theme rather than a design style, we recommend avoiding model boats and anchor motifs!

Save Worktop Space In Solid Wood Kitchens With A Microwave Housing Cabinet

Posted by admin on July 13, 2016 at 1:51 pm. Filed under: Products

In many modern homes – particularly in family-orientated households – rooms like kitchens are well occupied, which can cause problems when it comes to finding room for storage and space to work in. Ever find that work surfaces in busy solid wood kitchens are becoming overcrowded? This can make a room feel cluttered and can eat into your much-needed worktop space.

Whilst we already have a variety of space-saving solutions available, such as our handy wirework, we wanted to introduce the latest addition to this category: our microwave housing cabinet. This new range can be found alongside our other appliance housing units, and offers a great solution if you’re hoping to free up some precious space on your countertop.

These practical wall cabinets can be purchased in a range of sizes to suit most kitchens, and are available in widths of 500mm and 600mm and heights of 720mm and 900mm. The cabinet carcass is constructed from finger-jointed staves of high-quality European oak, and features an over-head cabinet with a lift-up hinge (providing more vital kitchen storage space!).

Our microwave housing cabinets are available with Traditional or Shaker frontals to match the rest of your chosen kitchen cabinetry. Frontals can be ordered with a sanded or lacquered finish, or painted in one of four colours from Farrow & Ball (All White, New White, Mizzle or Parma Gray); these finishes make up our popular ‘Signature’ range. Alternatively you can choose any other shade from Farrow & Ball’s extensive paint collection by opting for a ‘bespoke’ finish (this service incurs a small surcharge and a couple of extra days for delivery, as these colours are not held in stock).

Samples are available for cabinet doors and carcass panels, allowing you to discover the high quality of these kitchen components in the comfort of your home; or, if you’d like to visit us, we would be delighted to welcome you to any one of our five showrooms across the country. Please get in touch if you would like to make an appointment with one of our knowledgeable showroom assistants.
