If you are visiting the Ideal Home Show at Olympia London before April 9th, you may notice a fantastic solid wood kitchen set that we constructed in conjunction with Good Homes magazine.
The kitchen features two runs of cabinets and an island, all covered with our full stave ash worktops, which provide a bright contrast to the charcoal grey in-frame cabinets.
This entire kitchen set was styled in conjunction with interior stylist Kate McPhee for Good Homes, with the aim of showcasing the best interior products that are currently on the market.
We asked Kate what made her choose full stave ash worktops from our expansive collection of hardwood timbers, to which she replied:
“It was really important to choose a timber with prominent grain so that people could enjoy the natural texture of the wood.
“Our aim was to reinvent the traditional kitchen look by combining a very traditional in-frame timber kitchen with a light hardwood that brings texture and warmth to the scheme.”
The worktops we provided for the Good Homes stand were pre-cut by our bespoke cutting service to match the designer’s precise specifications, and were delivered by our 2Man team so that they could be installed immediately with minimal fuss.
Thanks to the carefully planning of our fabrication department, the installation proceeded without a hitch; indeed, Kate commented that “the installation was an absolute breeze and very straightforward.”
If you are looking for inspiration for your new kitchen, there’s still plenty of time to visit the Ideal Home Show at Olympia, which can be accessed from Kensington Olympia station (or is less than 15 minutes on foot from Hammersmith station).
