So you have decided you need a new kitchen design? What next? As with all furniture, the materials you select will be of utmost importance and will dictate the life span of your new furniture. For this reason, our kitchen designers at Newcastle Design recommend you opt for your kitchen to be made from birch hardwoods.
Why choose Birch?
Birch gives a far stronger surface for paint to adhere to, allowing your hand built kitchen to last for many years to come.
Birch trees are a renewable material as they are a native tree species in northern Europe .
Compared to other wood types birch has less knots. It is generally a smooth wood and is not known to splinter throughout its life-cycle making it a safer choice for homes with pets and/or small children.
We have found birch is ideal for busy family homes being stronger than the fast grown timbers that other suppliers use such as, poplar wood or tulip-wood. It also does not warp or twist over time like these woods giving you years of enjoyment of your kitchen.
