Wood look kitchen or rather solid

Wooden kitchens have a cozy, warm appearance. You could also opt for the look of wooden fronts by choosing a wood-look finish. A front is basically made of MDF or plywood and then has a wood-look veneer top layer with a wood structure. The advantage is that it is relatively inexpensive compared to solid wood. The disadvantage is that if there is damage on your front, there is no other option than to replace the front. That's the great thing about solid wood, you can renovate it endlessly or even give it a different look by sanding it and oiling or lacquering it in a different color. Ultimately, with real wood you also have a more sustainable wooden kitchen. In addition, each piece of wood has its own design, so you have a truly unique kitchen when you choose solid wood.

Wooden kitchen cabinets and kitchen drawers

Kitchen cabinet fronts made of solid wood give your entire kitchen a chic look. This makes your kitchen look like a completely solid wooden kitchen. It does not matter what the interior cabinets are made of, the fronts make the difference. It is also possible to mask the side panels of the kitchen with solid wooden panels. This way your kitchen will look like a completely solid wooden kitchen.

Hinges oak kitchen fronts

We can also pre-route your hinge holes and drill holes for drawer fronts. If it concerns a standard IKEA kitchen, we simply mill the standard hinges and bores. If it is a different kitchen, we would like to have the old kitchen fronts here so that we can recreate them. This way you can easily assemble your fronts yourself at home.

Kitchen fronts material

Our wooden kitchen doors have a thickness of 18 mm thick solid wood. We supply European oak as standard, but you can also contact us for other types of wood, such as American walnut. Oak is a popular type of wood and do you know why? Oak is a versatile type of wood: if you opt for a robust appearance and a more rural style, the oak wood will have more knots and more grain. Or do you like it quiet and sleek? Then we make your fronts with our oak in medium rustic wood.

In any case, we make the fronts from whole panels with continuous slats. This way your wood grain continues nicely into the next front. We make a milled L-profile in the back of every kitchen front, door or drawer.

This steel profile provides extra stability and counteracts any movement of the wood. As standard, we seal the knots so that no dirt can get in and your fronts feel nice and smooth. Do you want to keep the knots open? No problem, just let us know.

How is my kitchen front protected?

The choice for the finish of the solid oak kitchen doors and kitchen drawers is very diverse. You can choose white oak, which creates a natural look in your kitchen. We then varnish the wood with our strong matte clear varnish. Our warm oak kitchen fronts have a natural oil and matt lacquer finish that can be painted over. This gives a completely different look, it gives an even more wooden feeling.

Colors that can be painted over DroomHout oil

Colors such as white, gray or brown are also possible. This finish looks like stained wood, but it is not, we add a color pigment to our paintable oil and end up with the matte finish again.

The matte lacquer, possibly combined with oil, ensures that moisture cannot penetrate the fronts. You can easily wipe off any stains from your kitchen doors with just a damp cloth. We can also supply your fronts in opaque black where you can still see the wood grain through the black. A cool trendy kitchen with matte black kitchen fronts, also a nice choice.

New kitchen fronts tips: slatted fronts

Are you thinking about new kitchen fronts in your existing kitchen? You can give your kitchen a nice upgrade with just new kitchen fronts. What is completely hip now is the kitchen with slatted fronts. The solid fronts then get a slatted structure, the groove in the wood then looks like a loose slat. The standard width of the slat is 2 cm to half a cm, but the fronts are also available with a wider or narrower slat structure.

Furthermore, we make most kitchen fronts with a vertical grain structure, but if you find a horizontal grain direction better or more suitable in your kitchen, for example if you have more drawers, then this is also possible. Even then, the wood grain continues nicely into the next front.

Advantages and disadvantages of wooden kitchen fronts

Wooden kitchen fronts create a warm and natural atmosphere in your kitchen. In a sleek industrial interior with, for example, a cast floor and worktops in a cool color, you can distinguish yourself by choosing wooden kitchen fronts or a wooden worktop. Combining your kitchen fronts with wooden kitchen tops is also possible. An entirely solid wooden kitchen, so cool! Of course, the mix of wood with a kitchen top in natural stone or marble also has its charm.

What are the disadvantages of solid wooden fronts? If you do not protect the fronts properly with a good matte clear varnish, you run the risk of the wood expanding because moisture would penetrate the wood. Fortunately, we use a good matte clear coat that protects against warping, staining and discoloration. Maintenance is also minimal due to this treatment with lacquer. You use a damp cloth to remove any stains, otherwise your fronts do not require regular maintenance. And just like fronts made of other materials, a wooden kitchen front is also sensitive to sharp or hard objects. The great thing about solid wood is that you can simply repair a dent or scratch. You sand your front again and paint it and then the front is like new again. No other material can compete with that. The price of real wooden fronts is somewhat higher than a kitchen front from IKEA. On the other hand, you invest in kitchen fronts that last year after year and are therefore sustainable.
