Whether you have a modern kitchen or a traditional shaker kitchen, natural wood textures are an excellent way to enhance your kitchen design.

5 simple ways to infuse wood textures into your kitchen

In recent years, we have seen more customers adding subtle touches of wood textures within their design to add natural warmth to a space. The trend for wood finishes is dominating kitchen design, with almost all designs incorporating subtle touches of wood textures throughout. 

1 - Add wood finishes as accents

One of the most popular ways to add wood textures in a kitchen is incorporating wood kitchen doors as accents.

Wood textures beautifully complement an array of colours, from neutral colour schemes to bold and dramatic shades. Through choosing a wood finish, you can add the warmth that kitchens often crave and ensure your design works seamlessly within an open plan living space.

2 - Wood finishes for open shelving

If you would like to add open shelving in your kitchen design, the natural choice is a warming wood finish.

Our wood kitchen cabinet finish, Portland Oak is a firm favourite that can work as open shelving and kitchen cabinets. If you’re looking for a wood texture with a natural grain, Farmhouse Oak and Mayfield Oak from our Ligna range is a perfect choice.

3 - Wood textures for handlerails

A modern handleless kitchen can often start looking clinical, especially if you’re opting for a bright, neutral colour scheme.

To add warmth and style flair to a handleless kitchen, why not opt for a wood textured handle rail, this subtle accent will leave your kitchen looking modern and timeless.

4 - Wood finish worktops

The most common place to see wood finishes in a kitchen is the kitchen worktops, but real wood worktops come with a lot of maintenance and start looking shabby without the proper care.

For this reason, we’ve introduced five textured wood effect worktops that create the look of real wood, without the high-end price tag and demanding maintenance.

5 - Wood textures in storage and cabinets
