For any kitchen, large or small, contemporary or traditional, adding natural features can be a great way to add style and character to your kitchen. But natural materials tend to be expensive to install, and difficult to maintain effectively. Especially in an environment where waterproof surfaces are essential. That’s why timber effect, as well as stone effect, materials and features can be incredibly effective. So what are the advantages of adding timber effect features to your kitchen? And what should you consider? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about timber effect features in the kitchen.
Creating timber effect features in the kitchen
Adding timber effect features to any kitchen is easier than you might think. You could consider:
- Timber effect floor and wall tiles- these are tiles that are designed to look exactly like hardwood, so your kitchen can enjoy the look and feel of a hardwood floor, without worrying about regular maintenance, sealing or waterproof measures. This is a style that suits both contemporary and traditional kitchens, and can bring warmth and character.
- Timber effect cabinets- often more practical than real timber cabinets, timber effect is usually hard-wearing, durable and low maintenance. And these cabinets are frequently designed with a waterproof wrap to help protect your cabinets too. This is not as visually effective in a contemporary kitchen, where smooth and glossy acrylic cabinets are more popular.
- Timber effect worktops- you could also opt for timber effect worktops. These are worktops that are designed to look like real wood, but are more resistant to heat, spills and stains, and so bring a range of increased practicalities.
