Designing your kitchen can be quite a complex experience. There is a wide array of different materials to use, each of them offering their own pros and cons – it is understandable that so many homeowners become confused and unsure of what to use.
If you are looking to renovate your kitchen, it might be a great idea to consider using solid wood furniture. The material offers a large number of benefits over other types of wood, and over furniture of different materials. Solid wood is a classic, so you can not go wrong with it. Check out the great benefits it provides below as the Kitchen Warehouse team go into the advantages of using solid wood in your kitchen.
Solid Wood Kitchens are a Classic, Timeless Design
Wood never goes out of style. They have a timeless beauty to them, while still being incredibly simple and practical. They may stay in your home for years to come, without the risk of making it look outdated. Not only is the aged look very trendy, but it is also really beautiful, and unique – since its natural grain will make every single piece of furniture in your kitchen a unique one. Capable of fitting in with most styles and colour schemes, solid wood furniture is guaranteed to suit your kitchen neatly.
Extra Long Durability
Solid wood is a very resistant material – while other sorts of wood are susceptible to damage from moisture, quickly peeling and chipping, solid wood is highly resistant to it. Even if it does get damaged over time, you can always get it refinished, and to make it look like it is new once again. This eliminates the need to replace your furniture – making it an excellent investment which will save a lot in the long run, and possibly end up being gifted to your next generation.
Displays Sophistication And Personality
Using solid wood furniture is a clear sign that one is sophisticated and values quality – since the material is associated with fine craftsmanship. Since solid wood is not a material many people use in their kitchen, it also makes it stand out – your visitors are bound to comment on it, noticing your creativity and personality.
Warmer And More Inviting
Most kitchens are made almost entirely of artificial materials, which make it a ‘cold’, monotonous environment which is not very inviting at all. A kitchen made of solid wood will make you feel a lot more comfortable when preparing your meals.
Provides Extra Strength
Most wood cabinets made of other wood types are not nearly as strong as solid wood ones. They are terrible at supporting heavy countertop materials and are sure to cause you trouble in the long run.
Easy to fix
Not a surprise here as wood is probably one of the most abundant materials on earth. When things do go wrong, it is very simple to fix wood. In the case that things go very wrong (complete meltdown) then getting a replacement is not difficult at all. You can opt to contact the original seller or even get your own carpenter in to do the job for you.
Using solid wood for your kitchen offers great durability but that also comes with ease of use. There is only one suggested routine that is involved when using wood is that you should varnish once in a while to keep the wood up to date. This will help bring the wood back to its original state and possibly even more beautiful than the day you bought it!
Each piece of solid wood furniture offers the benefits mentioned above – ours are an excellent example. Our Madison Units, for instance, are made of quality oak, which not only is highly durable and strong but also go well in both traditional and modern kitchen settings. On top of the practicality that wood furniture already offers, it also has adjustable legs or hanging brackets with mounting plates – so it can be placed exactly where you’d like them to go.
Using wood is a fantastic and inexpensive alternative to the other options available for your kitchen. The traditional marble worktop can be expensive for many buyers which is why wood is a fantastic alternative. For some, using solid wood for your kitchen is even better than the alternatives!
