Howdy kitchen enthusiasts!
Here we are at the beginning of the second week of the year – I can only hope you’ve been having as much fun as Cabineto and I have so far! I was recently perusing one of those fancy style blogs that reckoned solid wood has had its day, and that stone will be the new natural material du jour for 2017. So it got me thinking; could oak kitchens (which our kitchen style of choice) ever really be considered dated?
I mean, if you think this kind of thing will ever be out of style, then sure…
I guess oak kitchens could be dated. But then what about this?
Sleek lines and dark brooding colours – it’s right in the here and the now in terms of current trends. The walnut worktops work great alongside the painted oak cabinets, and I’m sure you’ll agree that the adorable matching doggo adds an extra little “je ne sai quoi” too.
This next oak kitchen may be less dramatic but still has just as much style – paired again with walnut surfaces, plinths and pilasters, it’s the shiny chrome accessories that really bring this kitchen into the 21st century. Just check out that space-age extractor fan!
Still think oak kitchens are outdated? A splash of red and curves in all the right places are what give this kitchen a little va-va-voom. Warm and inviting, just like a kitchen should be. Iroko Worktops are ideal for families as they are naturally water-resistant and provide a subtle contrast between the surfaces and lacquered oak frontals is stunning.
I don’t believe anybody could need any more convincing, but if you are still unsure, come to a deTerra kitchens showroom and see what else we can do with oak kitchens.
Ta ta for now,
