The Cornell kitchen either comes as painted or as in this case in a delightful natural oak. This particular kitchen door frontage has a raised center panel offering the design extra detail. The Cornel natural oak is a clean oak offering a consistent colour and grain pattern to the door. The natural oak accessories matching the range also offer this clean oak look.
When a kitchen door center panel is flat is is invariably a veneered panel, as opposed to solid timber. Manufactured wood profiles such as veneered panels and Mdf, are more stable than tree-grown solid wood. Many believe that a solid timber panel is better than veneered; they see veneer as cheap and poor quality. In fact, a veneered panel is more stable than a solid timber panel and is considered in the trade as a better product, though it cannot be sculpted as it is in the Cornell.
