Wooden kitchens are always popular and the choice of finishes has never been more exciting; whether solid or wood effect, we have a choice of  beautiful finishes in a range of colours and tones. Whatever your style, there’s a wood to suit that will work to enhance your design and kitchen space. Here at Winchester Kitchens we have chosen some of our personal favourites.

Go beyond the pale. This handleless woodgrain door creates a beautiful look with clean lines that are fresh and contemporary in style.


Choose something rustic. The Islington Kitchen, part of the new Town & Country collection from Mereway Kitchens, offers doors with vertical wood grain, rather than the more common horizontal grain seen in other ranges, adding exceptionally elegant and unusual style. Here dramatic Treviso Dark cabinets are complemented by a central island in Treviso Light finish, creating a pleasing contrast. The illuminated and glazed Vitro wall units are echoed within the cleverly designed island, which features stylish open shelving for decorative items and storage, as well as a refrigerated wine rack, reflecting the current trend for multi-functional living room kitchens.


Pick honey tones Kitchens made from pine used to be all the rage, but today’s designs often use woods such as oak, creating a softer brown hue. This light and airy living space is enhanced by by using a combination of natural oak and painted snowdrop, to create a beautiful family kitchen.


Mix finishes Mixing solid wood with painted wooden cabinets is a nice way to create variety of tone in a kitchen. Quite simply the contrast of dark and light creates a feeling of timeless elegance.
