Transform your kitchen with fluted wood

We’ve seen a lot of fascinating kitchen trends emerge already in 2024, and over the last six months or so we’ve noticed that wood is one material that’s featuring in a growing number of popular trends – or more specifically, fluted and ribbed wood.

For some time now, the top kitchen trends have all been those themed around sleek minimalism. However, in the last few years, we’ve seen things take a turn towards texture, with fluted wood establishing itself as a firm favourite in many people’s dream kitchens, and no one knows that better than we do here at Kitchen Design Centre! In fact, we’ve seen our fair share of fluted cabinets this year in our clients’ kitchens. So if you want to incorporate them into your dream kitchen, here’s what you need to know.

What is fluted wood?

If you’re unfamiliar, fluted wood in kitchen design refers to wood with vertical grooves or ridges carved into it, giving it a textured appearance. This technique adds depth and visual interest to kitchen components like cabinets and panels. In 2024, the fluted pattern is being used to add a subtly sophisticated touch to modern kitchen design, having evolved from time-honoured designs of decades past. Fluted wood is a common motif found in classical architecture and furniture designs, so there’s no question as to whether it stands the test of time!

How can fluted wood be used in the kitchen?

Fluted wood is a versatile and elegant material that elevates the sophistication of kitchen designs. Personally here at Kitchen Design Centre, our favourite way to incorporate fluted wood into our bespoke kitchen designs is to use it for cabinet doors, creating a visually stunning and texturised look. It can also be used as a focal point on a kitchen island for a bold statement or selectively in a pantry.

The benefits of fluted wood

So, why are so many people asking for fluted wood in their new kitchen? Well, it has numerous benefits, the most obvious of which is the way it looks; the unique texture and design of fluted wood creates character and style that enhances any kitchen, providing a tactile surface that offers depth and dimension.

Fluted wood designs are a timeless trend that will always remain attractive. Their classic appeal makes them a lasting investment, adapting seamlessly to a wide range of colours and design elements, regardless of your preferred style.

What’s more, the grooves in fluted wood offer an interesting visual element to any space by casting shadows and highlights, adding depth and texture to what is otherwise a flat surface. It’s this effect that gives them their reputation as dynamic focal points within the kitchen!

So if you’re looking for a timeless, elegant kitchen feature that offers visual appeal, fluted wood might be just what you need! Our designers can help you design your dream kitchen and seamlessly incorporate the fluted wood element!

Warm wood kitchens are instantly cozy, approachable and inviting.
There’s no denying that white kitchens are timeless — they look clean, bright and ensure your space will feel modern for years. Wood kitchens, on the other hand, are more likely to exude warmth and can be more customizable to fit various lifestyles.
