“Are your wooden kitchen shelves suitable for use with laminate worktops?” Question of the Week 18/06/2017
“Are your wooden kitchen shelves suitable for use with laminate worktops?”
This week our ‘Question of the Week’ has been sent in by Stacy in Bracknell who wants to know more about our solid wood shelves.
“I’m planning on ordering laminate worktops and would like to get some wooden kitchen shelves at the same time. I have selected a wood-effect laminate and I want to know if this will still look good with wooden shelving.”
Thank you for getting in touch with us – we are delighted to hear you have chosen to purchase a laminate work surface from us – we know this will look great in your home for many years to come. Our wooden kitchen shelves are another fantastic choice and are a great way to provide additional storage. There are a number of options available if you are concerned about pairing wood effect laminate worktops with solid wood shelves.
You have not mentioned the wood-effect you have selected for your laminate work surface or the shelving, but to match our walnut, oak and beech effect worktops we have walnut, oak and beech shelf options to match. Although our wood-effect laminate worktops are incredibly realistic we would recommend that the shelves and laminate work surfaces are not positioned immediately next to each other, so as to ensure that any differences between the two products are not highlighted.
If you would prefer to create a contrasting look, our black oak floating shelves are a luxurious deep hue, and are much darker than any of our wood-effect laminate surfaces. We also have white painted floating shelves, and although the grain pattern of the oak used to construct them is visible, placed next to a wood-effect work surface it would provide a beautiful complement alongside any imitation timber worktop.
We hope that this has given you some ideas for combining wood effect worktops and wooden kitchen shelving. We would love to see how it looks after you have fitted everything in place, so please feel free to share some photos with us via email or social media!
In the meantime, if there is anything else we can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact us.
