Strong but Lively, Arlington Pippy Oak
Trends Arlington style doors are available in many colours and wood grains, but if you are
looking for a good, strong colour that is not too dark, Pippy Oak may just be perfect for
you. This is a deep, rich colour, described as a medium oak with small random knots.
These knots are sometimes also referred to as “pips” and that is where this kitchen door
type takes its name from. The veins stand out in this kitchen unit door more than in many
other types and this gives the feeling of nature, right in your kitchen. The inset panel in the
middle adds to the light and shade effect of the wood grain in this door.
If you wish to change the feel of your kitchen by replacing the cabinet doors, this choice
will add a touch of earthy outdoors. That said, it is not too exaggerated and while it could
give a “country kitchen” feel if coupled with certain accessories, it could also provide a
modern and up to date look if other trimmings were used. The cost of changing your door
and drawer fronts is probably much less than you think, so the time may be right for doing
The Arlington style doors are made from MDF, 18mm thick, using sustainable sources of
wood, and the surface is easily cleaned and maintained vinyl. Made to measure replacement doors are available, as well as the normal size offered in the Arlington style
from the Trends range.
