WKO Nuova - Affordable Fitted Kitchens

John Atkinson - Friday, May 17, 2013

With a fabulous new palette of board decors available we are now able to design and manufacture modern 'own-brand' ranges. Striking bold solid colours and contemporary wood-grains are just a few of the décors now available to us.

Following the trend for contemporary grey shades we have introduced the Nuova range. Available in affordable, and hardwearing MFC finishes these kitchens are available in made to measure sizes. Larger unit sizes not commonly found with 'off the shelf' manufacturers can be achieved. An example of this would be our 1200mm wide drawer units which are typical feature of many luxury German made kitchens.

The flexibility of the Nuova range means it's an excellent choice for customers with a bespoke requirement lending itself well to the design manufacture of inclusive kitchens for people with limited mobility.

The hardwearing MFC door construction is suitable for high-traffic environments such as office and student style kitchens. The range is also suitable for contract projects and WKO support contract customers with a bespoke high end marketing and design visualisation service helping them to win valuable new contracts.

Case Study - Painted Shaker Oak Fitted Kitchen

John Atkinson - Monday, December 05, 2011

Hand Painted shaker Oak Fitted Kitchen

Many thanks to Leigh and Joanne for allowing us to design and supply this fantastic painted shaker oak kitchen. Leigh found WKO after searching on-line for local kitchen design studios in the Newcastle upon Tyne area. Feeling disappointed with the level of design input received from the high street we were commissioned to provide alternative concepts for the space.

Listening to their requirements we devised a scheme choosing a combination of classic painted and natural oak shaker doors. Their new kitchen extension allowed us to produce a compact and ergonomic design which connected their kitchen and open living areas.

Using design features which among others included radius end panels we were able to create an interesting and luxurious high end fitted kitchen. By shopping on-line at WKO Leigh and Joanne made a significant saving compared to the high street retailers they had already visited. The savings made enabled them to enhance the specification for worktops, appliances and other fittings.

Shopping on-line did not mean a sacrifice in quality either. All of our kitchens are made to the highest quality standards and feature BLUM fittings throughout which offer excellent specification and great performance. Delivered ready assembled in 12 working days they were able to source a kitchen which exceeded their expectations in design, quality and price.

Linear Bardolino Oak - New for January 2012

John Atkinson - Monday, November 21, 2011

We have a fabulous new addition to the Linear range of modern kitchens available to order from January 2012. Linear Bardolino Oak is a stunning grey oak slab frontal featuring a deep wood grain effect. This convincing wood grain door is a hard wearing, practical and affordable alternative to real wood veneers costing many times the price.

The grey oak finish compliments a number of our door styles and can be combined with a contrast door colour such as our Glas-Look frontal in blue to add a splash of contemporary colour. The Linear frontal style is very similar to modern kitchen designs manufactured by high-end European manufacturers but is available on a much shorter lead time and at a fraction of the price.

All cabinets are made in the same wood grain texture and are fully colour co-ordinated inside and out. Our cabinets are ready assembled and constructed from quality EGGER 18mm carcass material rather than16mm material favoured by many German kitchen manufactures.
