November’s Gadget of the Month: A Mini Tabletop Pizza Oven for Solid Wood Kitchens

Posted by admin on November 30, 2016 at 1:14 pm. Filed under: General
The Artesa Mini Tabletop Pizza Oven is a fantastic talking point for solid oak kitchens.

It may be getting rather chilly outside, but here at Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets, we’re dreaming of warmer climes, sunny skies and tasty treats to whip up for the impending party season.

We have featured a range of fabulous gadgetry for solid wood kitchens in recent posts, but hadn’t yet settled on a ‘Gadget of the Month’ for November – something we are now pleased to remedy!

The Artesà Mini Tabletop Pizza Oven from KitchenCraft is – as you might have realised – a miniaturised version of the pizza ovens that most commonly adorn Tuscan terraces. With an artisan design and terracotta finish, it is a perfect centrepiece for your dining table, or can be used in the kitchen to create as many mini pizzas as your party guests can handle.

This tabletop pizza oven comes with two mini pans for cooking individual pizzas or garlic breads, allowing your guests to pick their own toppings at their leisure whilst another pizza is cooking.

If you think this fun little pizza oven would be right at home in your kitchen, it is available from KitchenCraft on Amazon for just £39.99 including delivery.

Don’t forget that if you are planning on using the Artesa Mini Tabletop Pizza Oven on wooden worktops, we recommend you sit it on top of stainless steel hotrods. We sell a protective worktop hotrod set for just £20, which fits into routed groves on any wooden worktop.

If you know of any other kitchen gadgets you think should be featured on our blog, please don’t hesitate to leave a message on our social media pages. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and also Pinterest.

 

Spotlight on The Reginox Elbe Kitchen Sink Tap for Solid Oak Kitchens

Posted by admin on November 23, 2016 at 1:07 pm. Filed under: General
The Reginox Elbe kitchen sink tap is ideally suited to solid oak kitchens with a traditional design.

At Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets, we have just introduced a brand-new range of kitchen taps that are the perfect complement for our beautiful kitchen sinks.

Whether you are planning modern or traditional solid oak kitchens, you will find a tap and sink combination in our collection that suits your requirements.

This month, the spotlight is on our Reginox Elbe Kitchen Sink Tap, which is priced at just £60 – a highly-affordable choice for classic country kitchens. It features a swivelling single-spout design that is ideal for accommodating sinks with an additional half bowl (or one of our double Belfast ceramic sinks).

The spout features an aerator to produce a smooth flow of water – even in high-pressure systems – whilst the smooth-action levers make it easy to control the temperature and the speed of flow. This tap has an overall height of 220mm, and a reach of 190mm, making it suitable for deck or sink mountings with a 35mm diameter hole.

To find out more about this elegant kitchen tap, visit our kitchen taps page. If you are struggling to choose a kitchen sink and tap combination, please refer to our ‘How to Choose Sinks and Taps for Solid Oak Kitchens’ information guide.

 

Colours of the Month: Warming Hues for Oak Kitchens

Posted by admin on November 16, 2016 at 12:05 pm. Filed under: General

The nights are drawing in and it is time to wrap up warm and prepare ourselves for winter. If you are currently in the midst of a kitchen redesign, now is the perfect time of year to be considering warm and homely shades for new oak kitchens.

This November, we have picked a cosy colour palette for our ‘Colours of the Month’: a range of comforting shades that are sure to keep your kitchen toasty and bright throughout the winter months.

Charlotte's Locks - a fiery orange tone that's perfect for accents in oak kitchens.
Babouche is an exotic yellow hue that is dignified, but never garish.
Radicchio is a magenta hue with a bright and modern feel - ideal for kitchen cabinet frontals.

Charlotte’s Locks is a colour named after the auburn hair of Farrow & Ball’s Head of Creative. This deep orange hue may not be the most suitable shade for painting an entire wall in, but it is a beautiful accent colour that looks superb on doors, solid oak kitchen cornices & pelmets and other frontal accessories. It can be paired alongside Strong White or All White as a bright feature colour, or as an accent to a variety of blues and greys.

Babouche is a saturated yellow with red undertones that is inspired by the colourful Moroccan shoes of the same name, and is a light enough shade to work as a cosy feature wall alongside either creams and whites or deep blues such as Drawing Room Blue.

The last of our ‘Colours of the Month’ is Radicchio – a warm magenta that takes its name from the deep red leaves of Italian chicory. It is a perfect colour for painting oak kitchen cabinet doors in a wooden kitchen, and looks particularly elegant alongside lighter timber surfaces such as our maple worktops.

If you’d like to bring a little warmth to your new kitchen but are undecided on the colour, why not order one of our painted cabinet door samples? These samples can be hand finished in any of Farrow & Ball’s colours; better still, the cost will be refunded if you go on to place an order that includes ten or more of our cabinet frontals.
