Demand for timber effect kitchen cabinets is increasing. But what are the main benefits of timber effect kitchen cabinets? And how can you use them to create the perfect kitchen? Here at Priory Kitchen Studio, we are Preston’s favourite kitchen design experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to the benefits of timber effect kitchen cabinets.


While acrylic cupboards or solid surfaces may appeal to modern, contemporary kitchens, the visual appeal of timber effect can’t be ignored.

With a range of colour and texture options, timber effect kitchen cabinets can suite any kitchen style, from a modern kitchen to a traditional or rustic style home. This versatility makes timber effect one of the best options around.

Hard-wearing and low maintenance

Timber effect materials are incredibly durable and require little maintenance to remain hard wearing. When compared to a real wood kitchen, which can crack, split or stain if not maintained correctly, this is a huge advantage.

Timber effect kitchen cabinets are both heat and water resistant, which means that they are perfect for busy and active kitchen environments.

In addition, timber effect kitchen cabinets do not need to have products applied to keep them strong and resistant. If you compare this to real wood, which may need waxing or polishing, or Corian, which may need specific cleaning products, timber effect is clearly the better option.

Budget and Price Range

While real wooden surfaces, or solid surfaces, are almost certain to come with heavy price tags, this is not always the case for timber effect.

In fact, timber effect kitchen cabinets can help you save money on your kitchen design, or stay within budget. This is because there are a range of price options relevant to timber effect.

While some types of veneer may be almost as pricey as real wood, if not more, other man made timber effect cabinets can be much cheaper.

In summary

If you are looking for new kitchen cabinets, why not consider timber effect. The benefits of timber effect kitchen cabinets include the versatility, the price, and the durability. Why not contact us at Priory Kitchen Studio today, or call into our Preston based showroom?
