Designers and architects designing wood kitchens

Many architects and designers are featuring wood floors and furniture in the kitchens of the luxury homes and apartments they create.

In the past, designers were reluctant to use wood flooring in kitchens, as wood does not like high-moisture areas and can be damaged by liquid spills. However, wood flooring manufacturers now offer a range of waterproof solid wood and engineered wood flooring that can safely be installed in kitchens.

In Barcelona, Spain, an apartment kitchen designed by MHAP Studio features medium-density fibreboard (MDF) cabinets and oak parquet flooring. MHAP’s aim was to create a warm feeling in the apartment, and it likes to work with natural materials that age over time to add character.

Most kitchens that feature wood use natural, dark or light brown timber. For a more contemporary and dramatic look, Hackney House in London, designed by Applied Studios, features jet black timber that contrasts with light grey cupboards and walls.

Wood is not just confined to kitchen cabinets and floors. For example, Rye Apartments in London, designed by Tikari Works, has a kitchen with cross-laminated timber walls that are designed to make the room feel cosy.

Wood flooring features in many homes and workplaces in the Wirral and Cheshire. Property owners like its natural look and long-lasting qualities. Most kitchen areas have laminate or tile floors with cupboards and shelves made from coated chipboard. For a more luxury feel, add wood features to a kitchen, including solid wood or engineered flooring. The wood can be light, dark or even black.
