Traditional Lacquered Door
Achieving the perfect look for your kitchen in a ‘DIY’ fashion is easier than ever, thanks to all the fantastic, easy-to-install products currently sweeping the market; a category that includes our solid wood kitchen cabinets, we’re proud to say. Better still, you don’t have to compromise on style if you choose solid oak cabinets that are easy to install and extremely affordable – recent reports indicate that the popularity of the ‘solid wood look’ continues to increase.
Indeed, articles in the Wall Street Journal and other noted publications suggest that ‘solid wood fever’ isn’t just fashionable – it’s global! San Diego-based designer Lisa Wilson-Wirth indicates that this design movement may be connected to an increased focus on the natural world: ‘the locavore movement has sparked requests for kitchens that feel more connected to natural materials’. Whatever the reason, one only has to visit a design show or flip through the pages of a magazine to see that wooden kitchen cabinets have become a front-runner, outstripping alternatives that are crafted from laminate or glass.
The benefits of a solid wood kitchen are wide-ranging. A contemporary look is easy to attain with painted wood frontals or a feature island, while unpainted wood frontals – like our lacquered doors – create a traditional look that adds character and warmth to the kitchen, a room that is increasingly thought of as the heart of the home. This ‘authentic’ and ‘rustic’ appeal is not only aesthetically pleasing, but a sensible investment: fine-quality solid oak cabinets – the type supplied by Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets – will endure, allowing you to enjoy your chosen design scheme for years to come.
