“I want to create a modern wood kitchen – which worktops would you recommend?”
Our ‘Question of the Week’ has been sent in by Terrence in Luton, who is looking to create a contemporary design for his new kitchen and wants some advice regarding his worktops.
“I will be using your solid oak cabinets for my new kitchen. I want to create a modern wood kitchen – which worktops would you recommend?”
Thank you for getting in touch – we are pleased to hear you have chosen to purchase your modern wood kitchen with us. There are a range of contemporary worktop options available to you and choosing the right one for your home will depend on the design of rest of your kitchen as well as personal taste. That said, there are a range of worktops that we feel are well suited to a modern setting, and have highlighted our top choices below.
You have not specified whether you are looking for a solid wood worktops or a laminate worktops, so we will cover both options here. If you want a wooden worktop to complement your oak cabinets, we think that creating contrast is the way to go in a modern wood kitchen. If you are considering our bespoke cabinet frontals, a lighter shade would work particularly well with our darker timbers, such as Wenge, Black Oak or Black American Walnut. For darker cabinet doors, a deep, warm timber, such as Iroko or Walnut works particularly well.
If you are looking for a practical and cost effective laminate worktop, marble effect kitchen surfaces are particular popular in contemporary kitchens; these look fantastic paired with dark cabinet frontals. Contrasting textures is a superb way of creating a modern wood kitchen and if this is something you would like to do in your home, we suggest either stone effect Ipanema grey worktops or concrete effect worktops.
This should give you some ideas for which worktops will work in a contemporary kitchen. Please get in touch if you have any further questions.
