The style of this kitchen is a Refined Traditional Cottage Kitchen with a touch of Country and Farmhouse charm. Usually, the mention of wooden work surfaces brings to mind the warmth of timber to create a traditional, cosy and inviting kitchen space. But the modern sink choice elevates the style to modern day.

Crathorne Porcelain doors in Porcelain Painted Finish

The Crathorne Porcelain doors are a modern take on the classic shaker style, they blend simplicity with tradition. These doors feature a slim shaker design and a distinctive ash grain texture, making them suitable for both classic and contemporary kitchens.

Crafted from durable timber with a painted finish, Crathorne Porcelain doors have a simple approach to sophistication. They pay homage to the Shaker cabinet styles, offering a timeless appeal that suits various home styles.

Versatile and adaptable, these doors can be paired with handles from the Cavendish Kitchens collection or used for a sleek, handleless look with an eye-catching trim.

Kielder Pewter Halifax Oak Laminate work surfaces

The Halifax Oak series is a budget-friendly alternative to real wood, giving a premium look and feel. With unique distressing featuring knots, deep cracks, and grain patterns, it brings a natural appearance to the kitchen worktop space. It’s tough against impacts, heat, and stains, making it a practical choice. The special Pewter Halifax Oak is great for use as a worktop or accent. It creates a lovely contrast with the Porcelain painted cabinet fronts.

Wood Worktop & Splashback

Wood worktops are a favourite choice for kitchens that want to achieve a traditional, rustic look. The wood counter choice in kitchens is common due to their durability, timeless appeal, and natural warmth. A classic aesthetic that is still versatile for many styles. This kitchen work tops come in a variety of styles and stains. This furniture-like finish adds an affordable edge to any kitchen. Whether it’s the long-lasting beauty of a matching splashback and kitchen counter top or the budget-friendly option of a butchers block. 

The Cavendish Kitchens Team said:

“We love using Porcelain, a warm white shade, in our projects, especially when dealing with all-white or mostly white kitchens. It’s all about adding layers of colour to bring visual interest and warmth to the space. One trick we use is bringing the wood up to the splashback height – it adds another layer of colour and just elevates the whole look.”
