Contemporary kitchen suites are an incredibly popular option for homeowners and landlords across Manchester. From ultra glossy cabinets, to sleek, handleless design, contemporary kitchens offer something unique. But they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. In fact, these kitchens have been labelled cold and sterile, as well as clinical. But that doesn’t have to be the case. A simple hint of wood can be more than enough to add some warmth, and character to your kitchen. Here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen specialists. As a result, we have produced this guide to wooden features in a contemporary kitchen.

Wooden features in a contemporary kitchen

So how can you warm up your kitchen with a hint of wood? Well, it’s easier than you might think. Here are our top ideas for wooden features in a contemporary kitchen:

  • hardwood worksurface- while the worksurface in your kitchen is often designed as part of the cabinets, you can add a hardwood worksurface to your kitchen island, or to a specific section of your kitchen. This can break up the glossy, “clinical” feel, and really add depth to your kitchen. It’s also incredibly stylish too.
  • wooden floor- in addition to the kitchen units themselves, you could install a wooden floor. This would pair well with any colour contemporary kitchen, as it would provide a neutral background. If hardwood or laminate flooring isn’t practical for your kitchen, why not consider timber effect floor tiles?
  • wooden accessories- to add wooden touches to your kitchen, without the price tag, why not use accessories instead? Kitchen accessories like bar stools and wooden wall racks can really integrate well with the overall design. And add warmth and character without changing your overall design.
