Kitchen design ideas - wood revival
Using solid wood in today's kitchen is comforting and uplifting. Regardless of weather you choose to have full solid wood, handmade, traditional, shaker style kitchen furniture, modern contemporary handmade kitchen or elements of the kitchen in wood highlight the kitchen design. As a natural product it remains a popular choice for kitchen furniture with many of our clients at Beau-Port Kitchens, in Hampshire. Beautiful solid wood such as oak, birch, mahogany and Iroko add warmth and a rich texture to the kitchen space. Or add a touch of luxury to a stylish contemporary kitchen with wood effects.
Contemporary bare woods offer an edgy design statement, pale woods can give a Scandinavian feel to the kitchen. Beautifully book matched wood is luxuriously simple in its design, providing continuity to the natural patterns and hues. While traditional designs such as a handmade shaker style kitchen can evoke a classic or vintage kitchen design and feel.
Mix wood with monochrome blacks and whites to inject warmth and tone to bold spaces. Or go wild with a statement piece of furniture in solid wood such as an Island, walk in larder or pantry style cupboard which complements the rest of the kitchen furniture.
Touches of wood add interest to both traditional and contemporary kitchen designs. Wooden panels, feet, slide away shelves, trays and chopping boards, handles, shelves and solid wood insets and interiors all add an element of luxury. Glass fronted cupboards and open spaces lined with wood and illuminated will bathe the space in warm light.
