“The worktops and risers are for my newly fitted kitchen. My flat is based in SW London and I’ve tried to ensure that everything is of the best quality at a reasonable price. I first came across Timberdeal when searching for solid wood worktops online. I wanted a quality look for the finish which was still an affordable price. I wanted full length staves with characteristics to give the kitchen a rustic farmhouse feel. Timberdeals products fitted that bill.
The kitchen cupboards are from SolidWoodKitchens which I can also confirm are of great quality at a very reasonable price also. The work tops and up-stands give a warm and cosy feeling which is very suited in my flat. I also have a log burner in the lounge which is connected to the kitchen to add to the overall warm and inviting feel.
To ensure higher quality look I went for the 50mm thickness with a natural finish that had been fine sanded. With the plan to have cutouts done by my builder for the sink and hob appliances and then oil the worktops myself. I was able to use the cut off to make additional items such as shelving and stands in my kitchen also. The quality of the rustic oak was too good to waste. You can see the cracks in the wood and cutouts that have been filled with resin to give the wood character and adds to the natural ambience and feel of my home.
Overall I am very pleased with the service received from Timberdeal. I actually visited the workshop when collecting my pieces this is something I highly recommended as you get to see the process of manufacturing the wood and it gives you a real insight into the amount of effort and craftsmanship that goes into the products. They talk you through the process and inform you of why is it important to kiln dry the wood to below 10% moisture so that you can use it indoors. They gave us a small sample of the correct oil to use to ensure the wood is protected and enhances the lifetime of the worktop also.”
