Best Accessories to Choose for Solid Oak Kitchen Cabinets
Our wide range of solid oak kitchen cabinets and other hardwood components can be used to create large and lavish kitchens, but that’s not all: they’re designed to make the most of more compact kitchens, too.
Whilst cabinets, wooden worktops and oak frontals can be used in tandem to create a fabulous kitchen, it is our variety of wooden accessories that really completely the look, helping to accentuate either a Shaker or Traditional style.
In this information guide, we have rounded up the best accessories to complement solid wood kitchen cabinets, all of which will imbue your kitchen with characterful charm.
Cornices & Pelmets
Whether you have adopted a classic or more contemporary kitchen theme, we have a range of solid wood cornices and pelmets to suit our oak cabinets.
To complement our cabinets, our cornices and pelmets possess a visible edge that is made from solid oak, whilst the return is constructed from MDF with a real oak foil; this makes installation quicker and more efficient.
Oak Plate Racks
Our solid oak plate racks are easy to fit and add lashings of traditional character to a kitchen, whilst offering an ideal storage solution for regularly used plates and saucers.
This accessory is made entirely from European oak – a hard-wearing and durable material that matches our solid oak kitchen cabinets. Each rack is available in sanded or lacquered finishes, or can be painted in any of Farrow & Ball’s fine eggshell shades to match your kitchen.
Solid oak corner posts are available in traditional or shaker designs to suit the look you are hoping to achieve in your new kitchen. Our corner posts are made from solid oak and can be sanded, lacquered, or painted in any of the Farrow & Ball colours we offer.
Alternatively our pilasters can be used as a corner post – depending on your kitchen cabinet layout. Corner posts suit our specialist corner cabinets, whilst pilasters are ideal for alternative cabinets or appliances are used in a corner.
Our solid oak end panels are perfect for finishing a run of kitchen cabinets, offering an aesthetically-pleasing alternative to bare cabinet sides.
These accessories are available in two different designs: 27mm thick standard and 18mm thick tongue & groove. If you’re after a thinner panel without the grooves, the panels can be mounted in reverse with a smooth surface facing outwards. They can either be left sanded, lacquered for a natural look, or painted in a Farrow & Ball colour of your choosing.
Cutlery Drawer Inserts
Solid wood cutlery drawer inserts come in a variety of beautiful hardwood choices and in a number of sizes, ranging from 310mm all the way up to 910mm wide.
Each cutlery drawer is created from the same timber as our wooden worktops, and is manufactured from a solid hardwood block using our precise CNC machine, which also engraves each section to denote which type of cutlery the tray is for. Each insert is sanded by hand to an incredibly smooth finish, ready for oiling.
