How to Create a Traditional Kitchen with Laminate Worktops
One of the benefits of laminate worktops is the many décors available that can be used to create a number of different kitchen themes. A traditional kitchen is often associated with solid wood surfaces, but as laminate worktops are now so convincing at replicating real natural materials, they can also be incorporated into a more traditional kitchen design. In this information guide you’ll find some inspiration for creating your new traditional kitchen.
Selecting the right work surfaces for your traditional kitchen will depend on the style you are looking for. Elegant Georgian style kitchens look superb with stone-effect surfaces such as marble effect Calcutta or black granite effect Nimbus as a kitchen centrepiece. Our imitation wood options, like oak effect and walnut effect, look fantastic in a more rustic traditional setting, and provide the perfect complement for a country or farmhouse kitchen. With such a wide range of possibilities to choose from, it is important that – when planning your kitchen – you select the right option for the look you want to achieve.
SOLID WOOD CABINETS
Solid wood cabinets are a fantastic choice for any home and fit particularly well in a traditional kitchen. Our Traditional cabinet frontals are an obvious choice creating a classic feel, and the extensive bespoke colour options we offer provide endless possibilities. White cabinets are a popular selection for traditional styles – we would highly recommend Farrow & Ball’s All White as it is the purest shade in their collection. Green shades also work well, evoking a rustic country feel. We think Breakfast Room Green is perfect to use on cabinets in traditional farmhouse settings.
At Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets we have a number of accessories to enhance the aesthetic of your kitchen. The handles that you choose for your kitchen cabinets can have a big impact on the finished look of the kitchen.
Copper and brass options have recently become more popular, but we think they look particularly fitting in a traditional setting. Our Edison knobs and handles feature an attractive crackled porcelain effect, which is perfect for a period look. Our wicker baskets are ideal for a more rustic kitchen design, and solid oak plate racks also fit well in a traditional kitchen.
Our wide selection of laminate work surfaces has plenty to choose from, whatever style of traditional kitchen you have in mind. Keep up to date with new product launches and the latest trends by following us on Facebook and Instagram.
