Enjoy Our Revamped Website for Solid Oak Kitchens

Posted by admin on December 31, 2014 at 10:00 am. Filed under: General

If you haven’t already noticed, our website has had a complete redesign in order to bring it right up to date. Our creative team have been hard at work over the past few months making the website ‘responsive’ which means it now works beautifully well on any smartphone or tablet, as well as PCs.

We’ve made it easier than ever to order components for our solid oak kitchens, including real wood kitchen cabinets, oak doors and drawer fronts and all sorts of other accessories for creating your dream wooden kitchen.

Many other aspects of our new website have been improved or updated, including a Price & Quality Comparison page, an up-to-date Customer Reviews section, a new and improved Kitchen Planning Advice category.

We’d love to hear your feedback on the new website! If you have any comments – good or bad, or if have experienced any bugs – drop us a message via email, or get in touch on Facebook or Twitter.

The entire team at Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets would like to wish you a very happy New Year!

Oak Kitchens in Farrow’s Cream: December’s Colour of the Month

Posted by admin on December 24, 2014 at 11:44 am. Filed under: General
Solid Oak Kitchens in Farrow's Cream

At this time of year, the colours that tend to dominate are reds, silvers and golds. For a truly scrumptious cabinet that radiates warmth the whole year through, though, December’s Farrow & Ball Colour of the Month is the perfect shade to choose.

Farrow’s Cream is the ‘original’ cream from the Dorset paint specialists, and is a warm shade that will brighten all oak kitchens. The colour contains hint of yellow but not too much, meaning that it avoids looking garish against the rosy tones of solid wood.

Sitting right in the middle of our ‘Pastels’ collection, Farrow’s Cream has brighter tones than the off white of New White, whilst being lighter than the pale cappuccino hues of Cord.

As well as our Colour of the Month, we thought we’d also take the time in this blog to wish all of our customers a very merry Christmas, and a wonderful New Year. This year has seen the opening of our new showroom in Harlow; the introduction of curved plinths, cornices and pelmets, and our popular new oak plate racks. We even gave away a brand new iPhone 6 to one lucky customer over on our Facebook page in September.

After such a busy year, we have generously allowed our staff to take some highly-deserved rest, in order to get ready for the busy New Year. As such, our sales lines will be closed on the following days during the Christmas and New Year period:

Wednesday 24th of December

Thursday 25th of December

Friday 26th of December

Sunday 28th of December

Thursday 1st of January

Sunday 4th of January

On the 27th, 29th, 30th and 31st of December our sales lines will be open between the hours of 10am and 2pm, so please get in touch with us during this time period if you are planning on placing an order. Alternatively, if you wish to visit our showrooms, please visit the Gloucester Showroom and Harlow Showroom pages for specific information about their opening times (which differ from location to location).

From the entire team at Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets, have a fantastic Christmas, and a happy New Year! The team will be back to normal operating hours from Monday the 5th of January, when we look forward to kick-starting 2015 by making someone’s dream wooden kitchen a reality.
