Whilst contemporary kitchen trends come and go – classic, natural styles will always be at the forefront of kitchen design. But don’t think natural kitchens can’t have modern styling; there are some incredibly sleek modern wood kitchens out there, from oak worktops to mdf wraps. In this week’s blog post, we look at some of the ways you can use natural materials to give your kitchen that much-admired nature-inspired look.
Oak Worktops and Wooden Work Surfaces
They’ve always been popular, and here at Kitchen Door Workshop we have no doubt that they will remain so for many years to come. There are a vast array of options available, each with their own unique style and flair. For a vintage look, a classic oak worktop with matching kitchen doors is perfect for a country themed house. Pair a lighter wood worktop with a classic cream Shaker kitchen door for a tried and tested, stylish kitchen combination. Alternatively, dark wood oak worktops look brilliant in a contemporary cooking space, especially when paired with some high gloss black kitchen doors.
Stylish Kitchen Flooring
Flooring, as always, is an important decision to make, as it really can make or break your kitchen. Yet again, there are so many choices out there for a natural looking kitchen. Wood flooring lends unmatched warmth and character to a room, and looks brilliant in more traditional kitchens. Away from wood, stylish slate is another popular option, and for good reason. Large slate tiles not only look great, but are extremely easy to clean and maintain. For a more modern style, high gloss white tiles are the epitome of a contemporary kitchen, yet still retain that natural feel.
Natural Kitchen Doors
While you should you never forget the importance of things like flooring and worktops, kitchen doors are arguably the most important element of every kitchen, and if you’re looking to go natural, there are more options than ever. For more modern kitchens, there are high gloss woodgrain kitchen doors which have all the character of a natural kitchen door, with the added style of a mirror-like sheen. Visions Ultragloss Mira Cosa is a fantastic example of this. There is also a massive range of wood-effect finish kitchen doors, such as Beech, Swiss Pear, and Ontario Maple. These are generally light and have a wonderful soft tone. For natural shades with a twist, look at our Legno kitchen door range of more orthodox colours with a textured wood grain finish. You can get free samples of any of these colours here.
There so many ways you can give your kitchen the natural finish it deserves from wooden oak worktops to natural kitchen doors, so get planning today.
