Laurel Farm Kitchens only use the highest of quality materials, here is a selection of some of the materials we use, click on the sections below for more information about each.
By using only solid natural timbers we can ensure that our cabinets and furniture maintains its integrity under the rigors of a lifetime wear and tear. Some man made composite materials such as melamine or veneered chipboard easily damage, become very vulnerable to damp and are prone to swelling and delaminating. The Use of these materials dramatically reduces the quality and life span of furniture and kitchens.
With our unique old pine range all visible external material to the front of the furniture is original old pine which has been stripped, stored and selected for your project. Painted cabinet fascias are of tulipwood which is a solid hardwood, stable, durable and knot free.
Great pride is taken in the quality of our cabinetry. Each piece is built by qualified experienced cabinet makers, who use time honored carpentry techniques:
All proven methods of construction.
The secret to a high quality finish is the base material, preparation and expert application.
We offer lacquered, oiled, waxed and paint finishes. An oiled and waxed finish adds a certain lustre to beautifully grained woods but does require periodic re coats to maintain a deep finish.
Cabinets to be painted are built from knot free tulipwood and are meticulously prepared, primed and hand painted with brush stokes following the line of the grain to highlight construction and individual components.
In our opinion consistently achieving the highest standards in these three key areas ensures our clients receive lasting quality.
