The ageless appeal of timber kitchens
Given that so many adjectives – beautiful, warm, ageless, and tactile, to name a few – are so often used to describe timber, it’s no surprise that timber kitchens are on trend right now. In fact, it’s no surprise that they have never really lost their appeal.
Those who own a wooden kitchen – or simply timber kitchen cabinets – are no doubt used to complements about how ‘earthy’ and ‘calming’ they are, but there is more to their popularity than that. Whether they feature jarrah, oak, recycled wood or timber-look laminates, timber kitchens are also functional and durable.
And, importantly, they are not particularly expensive. In these terms, compared to designs relying on other materials, modern timber kitchen designs tend to be about mid-range. A timber kitchen benchtop, for example, tends to cost about half the price of one made of quartz or engineered stone, though more than a laminate alternative.
