How to Make a Feature of your Oven in Solid Wood Kitchens
Kitchen ovens are available in a huge variety of styles and can become an impressive feature in solid wood kitchens – especially if you have invested in a stunning new range cooker, for example. Do you have a cooker you are proud of, or would like to make into a feature? Simply follow these top tips on how to make yours stand out from the crowd:
Simple to install, pilasters are a decorative addition to any kitchen and help highlight the features you love the most. These fetching solid wood frontal accessories are available in a range of styles, so you can easily find one to suit your kitchen – whatever the design. If you prefer to opt for simplicity, our classic pilasters have an elegant, square-edged aesthetic, and come in a variety of widths. They can also be painted, sanded or lacquered to compliment the rest of your kitchen. If you are looking for a more decorative look, we offer ornate pilasters in a range of styles, too.
A kitchen breakfront is a section of your sideboard that protrudes slightly, to give added emphasis to a beautiful range cooker; this effect can also be used simply for decoration, or can be embraced for range cookers with substantial depth, and is also a great feature around an elegant Belfast sink, if you wish. Adding pilasters, corner posts or tailored worktop off-cuts can give extra embellishment to cabinets surrounding ovens, too, though solid oak end panels will need to be added to cabinets for these extras to be attached to.
Tiling, stainless steel or glass kitchen splashbacks are not only an attractive feature that creates a more ‘finished’ look; they are also perfect for protecting walls against stains from inevitable sauce splashes. Whichever style you choose, splashbacks look excellent when colour-coordinated with your oven, and are sure to bring it some well-deserved attention.
If a simple splashback is not grand enough, you can enhance this area by surrounding it with attention-grabbing design details. An attractive oven mantle creates a sophisticated look, making it the focal point of any kitchen. Similarly, bridging units can be used to give a similar effect, whilst also providing lots of additional storage space for frequently-used cooking condiments and utensils.
