Product Choices > Ranges Available

We now have two ranges available

Our Pure range and our PREMIUM range.

We have called our new range the “Pure” range.

It features the same Veneered Oak MDF carcases for strength and durability along with stunning looks, 

The difference is how the doors are made.

The major difference is that the top and bottom parts of the “in-frame” look are actually attached to the door and open with the door, leaving the side frames attached to the cabinet.

Attached are a few pictures of closed and open doors that may explain this better.

This range can still be painted in any colour, or you can finish it yourself just like the premium range.

 

The net result is you get the same look but it costs around 15% less than our premium range.

On an average kitchen this makes over £1000 difference which can mean the difference between having it or not.

 

Our Premium range is a True In-Frame kitchen made with either Water Resistant MDF, Tulipwood or Beech doors and frames, the same veneered oak carcases as the Pure range and the same Dovetailed Oak drawwer boxes

The wood you choose for your kitchen doors will depend entirely on the style you want to achieve and of course, your lifestyle, your needs and your kitchen requirements.

We always have several different options available for our customers and you’re welcome to enquire about these at any time.

Before you decide on the sort of wood you want. It is important to think about whether you want to paint the doors to your cupboards, or whether you want to simply oil or stain them.

If you’ve answered with a resounding ‘YES’ to painting, then we always recommend that you opt for Water resistant MDF. This product is durable and gives a superb, smooth finish for paint. In addition to this, it won’t reveal the grain of the wood and knots won’t show.

The inside of your cabinets will always be made from Oak veneer. This is a quality wood which can then be oiled or varnished as you choose. It is hard wearing and durable when treated this way.

Painting or oiling your new kitchen cupboard doors

Choosing to paint your own kitchen cupboard doors can be something that is incredibly rewarding and satisfying, not to mention the money you’ll save!

However, it needs to be done properly and isn’t something you can rush into. Searching online resources such as YouTube is a great way of finding out the best way to undertake a project like this. You’ll see the good and the bad in the demos you watch. We particularly like these videos as a great ‘How to…’ guides:

Some general guidelines on oiling your cabinets and doors

If you decide you would rather oil your cabinets and doors for that more natural appearance - and to let the wood’s beauty really shine through, there are a few simple guidelines to follow:

We personally choose to use Danish Oil when we undertake this job. This can easily be bought online, or from any good DIY specialist. It benefits from having a low sheen finish and really is a versatile product. It not only makes the wood look stunning, but nourishes from the inside, meaning that your cupboards and doors will remain protected for longer.

There are many other good, nourishing oils you can buy from DIY stores to help with your project. For instance, you may want something with a higher level of sheen than Danish Oil can give. It is always worthwhile checking with your local store to see what they have on offer that suits your needs and your own budget.

One point to note is that you should never directly paint the inside of your kitchen cupboards. This is a matter of aesthetics first and foremost. Paint on the inside of cupboards will tend to mark and scratch much more quickly than oiled wood. This can make the wood itself look aged and damaged, when it really isn’t.

We’re always on hand if you need us or want to talk through any aspect of your brand new kitchen design. If you can’t get into the showroom, you can simply call us on 01202481177, or if you prefer, you can email us at office@classic-kitchens-direct.com. We’d love to talk to you and make your dream kitchen a reality!
