“Where are your solid wood kitchens manufactured?” Question of the Week 24.05.15
“Where are your solid wood kitchens manufactured?”
The week’s ‘Question of the Week’ was sent to us by Jonathan in Stafford. He is considering placing an order for components to create a new wooden kitchen, and wanted to know where exactly our cabinets, frontals and other wooden kitchen furnishings are manufactured.
“I am currently planning my new kitchen and want to preference solid oak cabinets and doors which I have seen on your website, but I would like to know where exactly these and your other wooden kitchen products are manufactured?”
Thank you for sending your query in – we are delighted that you are considering ordering one of our high-quality solid wood kitchens.
Both our base and wall cabinets, as well as our kitchen unit doors are made almost entirely from solid oak (save for the rear panel in our cabinets – this is made from MDF with an oak foil, to allow flexibility for the natural expansion and contraction of the wood). The panels for the oak cabinetry are manufactured in Europe (both within the UK and the Czech Republic). Both suppliers use only sustainable European oak of the highest quality, which is then lacquered to give it a hard-wearing finish.
Our solid oak frontals are also created entirely from sustainably-sourced European oak – you won’t find any flimsy centre panels like some of our competitors use. These doors are also manufactured in Europe (in both the Czech Republic and Italy) and available in either a Shaker or Traditional style.
Both panels and doors are hand-finished and are checked by eye to ensure a consistent fit and finish across all base cabinets. If you choose to have your doors painted in any of the Farrow & Ball shades we offer, the painting is hand-finished here in the UK to minimise any risk of damage during transit.
If you are also considering our wooden kitchen worktops then you will be pleased to hear that these are also manufactured here in Europe, with the vast majority coming from the Czech Republic. All timbers are from legal, fully licensed sources with established replanting programs in place.
I hope this answers your question, but if you have any further queries, feel free to get in touch.
