Timber wood is definitely one of the most aesthetically pleasing and durable among its various counterparts out there. This leaves no room for doubt as it is also widely used as a material of choice for kitchens dubbed as ‘timber kitchens’. But, before you hop on to Pinterest or Google to find new designs, we suggest taking a look at these things first:
1. Is it for you: The first question you should be asking yourself before even preferring timber kitchen in the first place is if the material is suitable for your living condition. For instance, timber isn’t quite resilient against stains and may even lose color because of it. Furthermore, it requires a lot of maintenance so be sure to consider all variables before even deciding to opt for timber kitchen.
2. Color choice: Timber is available in a variety of different colors to choose from, which are also actually quite different from each other in terms of other aspects like durability and longevity. If we noted down all of them it could take an entire separate post so it’s best that you research and find out ones available and, depending on its other properties, choose the best one for you.
3. Reviews: Buying a timber wood kitchen isn’t something you leave to chance. Sure, word-of-mouth or the one closest to you might seem like a good option but looking up on the internet can give you a clearer picture and more options. All it takes is one Google search of finding the kitchen and bathroom renovation companies like ourselves (Better Bathrooms & Kitchens) along with appropriate reviews alongside it. If you can’t find reviews, there are other website that lists services and reviews such as Yelp.
4. Custom vs available: Every kitchen renovator will give you a different price range for making or providing timber kitchen. Here, we recommend inquiring about the cost of a kitchen that they may already have vs the price of making a new one with the design that you have. If the difference isn’t that much, find a good design online (we recommend these) and prefer the latter. Of course, make sure that their custom work is just as good as their prebuilt ones by looking up online.
