  • Matching Wood Flooring To Wood Worktops In The Kitchen

    Wood Can you ever have too much wood in a kitchen?  This is a question we often get asked by people who have a wood floor and are contemplating a wooden worktop.  What should they do?  Should they forget the idea and go for granite or stainless steel or can they make a wood worktop “work” with their wood floor?  In our view (and of course we’re a bit biased), you can’t have too much wood in a kitchen.  If you think about it, a wood floor can be perfectly off set by some contrasting cabinet doors which are then topped off with a wood worktop. Where’s the problem?  To be honest, the problems come when you don’t plan your wood combinations.  Here are a few scenarios that we think could work really well. If you’re working ... READ MORE >

  • The Difference Between Softwood And Hardwood

    You’d be forgiven for having a look at the title of this article and having a little chuckle to yourself, thinking we’ve completely lost the plot!  Surely softwood is soft and hardwood is hard, no?  It can’t be much simpler than that, you might think.  But no, the terms softwood and hardwood don’t refer to the density or hardness of the wood itself.  These are terms that refer right back to the tree and how it reproduces itself. Trees, without exception reproduce by producing seeds, but the seeds of different trees vary and it is this that lies at the heart of the difference between a soft and a hardwood.  Trees that produce hardwood are known as angiosperms and produce seeds that are covered, either with a skin or a shell.  S ...

  • Concrete Worktops or Wood Worktops, Which Is Better?

    Concrete is a material that’s gaining a great following at the moment.  Being used on floors, in bathrooms and as kitchen worktops, concrete has certainly won the hearts of many of late.  Many of us will only have seen this relatively new interior design phenomenon in magazines, showing us how great it looks.  For anyone who has gone the extra mile though, and has either gone to a showroom to see and touch concrete worktops or who have friends or relatives who have chosen to go this route, there are likely to be two ‘tribes’: those who love it and those who loathe it.  And it’s only fair to say that the same is true with wood worktops.
