Solid Oak Kitchen Price & Quality Comparison

At Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets, we've always had one aim: to offer superb oak kitchens to our customers for the most competitive prices on the market. Whilst some may claim to provide solid oak kitchens at the same price as us, the cabinetry will typically not be made from solid oak, but composite materials instead such as chipboard with perhaps an oak veneer or finish.

By designing and organising fitting for your own kitchen, you can afford a much higher specification, whilst saving huge amounts on the total cost.

What's more, all of our kitchens are delivered by our own in-house two-man delivery team, come with a full 5 year guarantee, and have no hidden extra costs. Our large stock-holding and comprehensive range of modular sizes also means that we can fulfil your order from stock - so there's no need to wait!

Below are some quality comparisons for a kitchen of a similar size and layout to that pictured (furniture only). In most cases we weren't able to find direct comparisons as other retailers simply don't provide the same solid oak material or the vast selection of products that we are able to offer; however, we did our best to compare components that were as close as possible to those featured in our original kitchen.

We are in the process of compiling price comparisons; please check back soon for this additional information.
