Lifestyle Kitchens can manufacture your kitchen in almost any colour or wood type that you prefer. Above is only a small selection of the popular woodgrain colors and types available (except maybe the Lindau Pear..). Cupboards are mainly manufactured from melamine panels with your chosen color.
Veneer and Solid Wood
Another option is to use Veneer or Solid wood for panels and doors. Veneer is either Mdf (Supawood) or chipboard laminated with a thin layer of natural wood. This creates a solid wood feel and can be stained or varnished to create the desired finish.
Veneer doors are made using a flat veneer panel with a 2mm solid wood edging. Semi Solid doors are made using a flat veneer panel with a solid outer wooden frame. Solid doors are made entirely of natural wood and is available in various raised panel profiles.
We often use a combination of solid wood trimmings and edging with veneer panels and doors to create a classic wooden look at a reasonable price.
Mdf or Supawood
Mdf or Supawood blends the advantages of manufactured board with the natural properties of solid wood, allowing for most traditional wood working techniques.
Mdf also enables us to create various door profiles(raised panel etc.) which can then be wrapped, sprayed or painted.
Lifestyle Kitchens offers three options in High Gloss finishes depending on customer specifications and budget, these are the available options:
High Gloss Spray Painting - 2k Automative quality paint that is polished to create an immaculate gloss finish.
Seno High Gloss - High Gloss Seno Panels and doors with Gloss edging in various colours.
High Gloss Wrap - High Gloss Wrap panels and doors. This option is very cost effective.
A popular choice to recreate a farmstyle look - paint technique involves painting the the individual cupboard faces and doors to create various effects, for example a weathered or textured look. Kitchen doors would normally be constructed from Supawood. A profile can be added for decorative purposes. The raw Supawood is then painted according to the customer's specification. See our Portfolio page for an example of a paint technique kitchen. We have Paint Technique samples available for viewing.
