Laminates or Real-wood, what would work better for you?

April 17th, 2019 - Posted by in-toto Solihull

Being a natural product, wood can come with imperfections that are found in their grains such as knots, however, this creates a much more authentic and rustic feel that would work perfectly for a traditional kitchen vibe or as part of two-tone modern kitchen design. You can get real wood doors that are customised in different ways whether they are painted or have a gloss finish you can create some truly beautiful finishes.

Our Wallis wood veneer range here at in-toto Kitchens is one we are particularly proud of. The facias are made of old wooden boards and beams which means that each piece of wood used in this range, has its own unique character. Having been sourced from large old beams means that each piece of wood used to make up this high quality, thick veneer is made from one continuous piece. This helps add strength and robustness to the finish of the stunning, luxurious Wallis range.


Laminate doors, on the other hand, are even more versatile and you can get an even bigger range of textures and finishes which might better suit the style of the kitchen you are looking for. They can easily create a modern as well as a traditional look due to the smooth and textured finishes they can come in. The laminate concrete doors are one of our customer favourites at in-toto Solihull.

As well as the obvious natural and beautiful aesthetics of a real wood kitchen, it is something that will last for a long time, it is so strong and sturdy you are guaranteed to have a kitchen that will stand the test of time.

Although real wood doors are typically the most expensive choice due to the material cost and higher labour involved, it could work out for the better. If you are looking to sell your home, a solid wood kitchen will add value and can boost the price of your property.

Laminate doors are maintenance free, their stain and water resistant surfaces are easy to clean due to the non-porous quality of their finishes.

They have a high durability too which means they are less likely to scratch and chip too so a busy family kitchen would really benefit from laminate doors.
