The main wood species

When it comes to wood species, each possesses its own unique qualities and advantages, making certain types more suitable for specific purposes. For instance, the wood chosen for your cabinet doors may differ from that of your countertops, as their functions vary. To navigate this selection process, our knowledgeable designers are ready to guide you towards the optimal choices aligned with your preferences and requirements. While numerous wood species are available, the following are frequently preferred:

  • Maple
  • Birch
  • American black walnut

Can I choose more than one wood species in the same kitchen?

Absolutely! Why settle for a single wood species when you can explore the captivating possibilities of combining two in your kitchen? Picture this: wood cabinet doors harmonizing with hardwood flooring, complemented by wood countertops and furniture, all in the same colour. While personal tastes vary, such a design may seem somewhat monotonous. However, envision the impact of deliberate contrast by integrating two distinct wood species or colors. A truly harmonious fusion awaits! This can be achieved in very small doses, introducing elements like a utensil pot or accessory on the countertop to infuse warmth. Even small touches are enough to create an inviting space, perfect for living, dining, and savouring life’s moments 

Wood is an ideal material for the kitchen, radiating both warmth and elegance while effortlessly adapting to any style and need. With so many species and finishes to choose from, discovering the ideal match becomes an exciting quest. Moreover, its exceptional durability ensures that wood cabinets withstand the test of time, triumphing over wear and tear
