We love simple and clean design of the shaker cabinets, but some customers ask for rounded profiles on the doors. Therefore, we have now developed a series that is based on the strict shaker aesthetics, but at the same time flirts with the 1920’s.
We always build kitchens by hand from solid wood and paint then by hand with linseed oil paint. No chipboard or mdf anywhere. This also applies to our beautiful 1920’s kitchens. In addition to rounded profiles at the mirrors, the cabinet frames are slimmer and there are beautiful mirrors on the cover sides. Another difference is the inner plinth. We think that display cabinets over the vanity unit add the finishing touch. In our showroom, we have put recycled mouth-blown glass in the doors. It is possible to order cabinets without glass if you also have access to mouth-blown glass that you want to recycle.
CLASSIC. BEAUTIFULLY. DECORATED
We love the clean austerity of the shaker cabinets and have taken this as our starting point when creating our 1920s kitchen. We have allowed ourselves to be influenced by kitchens from the turn of the century and the 1920s and therefore added a little more shape and decoration. On the visible sides we have beautiful mirrors. Unlike the shaker kitchen, even the larger drawers have mirrors to match the side panels and doors. We think these kitchens fit perfectly in homes from the turn of the century until the 1920s.
The 1920's door
The 1920’s kitchen door consists of five parts: Four parts for the frame and a “mirror” in the middle.
The door is profiled – the edges have a concave profile. The profile is the same as an old-fashioned ceiling strip, a perforated strip. The cornice that comes with this kitchen has the same shape.
The kitchen doors are built in solid ash, with a birch plywood mirror and are hand painted with linseed oil paint. Therefore, it is possible to sense beautiful brushstrokes that gossip about the good craftsmanship that lies behind.
The 1920's socle
Unlike our Shaker kitchens, the 1920s kitchens have an inside plinth. If you instead want an external plinth, you can choose, like some of the kitchens you can see in the picture on this page.
Linseed oil paint
We paint our kitchens by hand with linseed oil paint. The linseed oil paint we use has a semi-gloss surface that is easy to keep clean. We use linseed oil paint, manufactured by SELDER & CO.
Linseed oil paint is sensitive to basic substances. Therefore, cleaning agents with a pH above 7 should be avoided (for example, soap should be avoided). Acids are OK, but not basic/alkaline substances as they dissolve the linseed oil.
The color is relatively glossy when it is newly painted, and then dulls down during the first months.
For our 1920s kitchens, we recommend one of our lighter base colours. Sommarsand (Summer Sand), Vintervit (Winter White), Dimgrå (Fog Grey), Silkesgrön (Silk Green) or Vintermossa (Winter Moss). You can see our basic colors below.
For a small additional cost (for transport and handling) you can choose your own colour.
Twig-free ASH AND PINE
We build our kitchens in solid wood. We use solid ash in the fronts and doors, and knot-free pine in the frames. It is an incomparably beautiful material that lasts for generations. Solid wood is a good deal calculated over its lifespan, for both you and the environment. So if you want a real wooden kitchen, we have the kitchen for you.
MOUTH-BLOWN GLASS BRINGS A NICE FINISH TO THE KITCHEN
In our showroom, we have inserted recycled hand-blown glass in the shutters. It gives beautiful life to the things in the cupboard. It is fine to order a cabinet with a wooden mirror, modern glass or an “empty” cabinet without glass if you also have access to hand-blown glass that you want to recycle. You can opt for spotlights inside the glass cabinet. If you want a glass cabinet, you can find this in our kitchen planner. You can choose to convert our wall cabinets and bench top cabinets into glass cabinets by selecting this in one of the tabs when you have selected a cabinet. If you choose a glass cabinet, we put glass in the mirror. And just in case you have found beautiful hand-blown glass yourself that you want to use, we can deliver the display cabinets without glass with moldings, so that you can insert your own glass during assembly.
FULLY INTEGRATED, SEMI-INTEGRATED OR FREESTANDING APPLIANCES
Integrated appliances? Sure! It is possible to integrate your appliances with our cabinets. The dishwasher is by far the most common to integrate. From us you can buy a front that consists of a frame and a door. The door you attach to the dishwasher’s own door. It is also common for our customers to want to integrate a fridge and freezer if they do not want them to be independent. Either you can choose a cabinet where you set up your fridge and freezer, but where the appliance’s own door is visible. Or you can choose to integrate the door as well, if you buy a fridge and freezer with the possibility of this. There are two different ways to mount a cabinet door on a fridge and freezer, with sliding rails or “door-on-door”. The second option is more stable as the doors are mounted directly against each other. There are also cabinets to integrate the oven and microwave, but for these two appliances, the appliance’s own front becomes visible.
IT SHOULD BE EASY (AND BEAUTIFUL) TO SORT GARBAGE
All our sink cabinets include stainless steel sorting containers. The number of containers varies depending on the size of sink cabinet you choose. The source sorting is made of stainless steel in a solid wooden box on pull-out rails. This makes it both practical, simple and attractive to sort garbage.
The drawers in our modern wooden kitchens are mounted on rails from world-leading Blum. They can be pulled out the entire length of the drawer, and they are soft-closing. It is possible to get pull-out drawers inside the cupboard doors, so that you can easily access everything in the cupboards. And our corner cabinets have modern pull-out shelves. Our drawers are also available with cutlery inserts.
MODULAR SYSTEMS AND CUSTOMIZING
Our kitchens are based on a modular system with great variety. If the modules are still not enough and special adaptations are needed, we will fix that too.
