Probox create the range drawers in a wide range of materials, including oak, walnut, beech, maple and birch ply.
All dovetail drawer options (except birch ply) are made using A grade select solid/ hardwood timber. Hardwood offers a pristine finish and due its nature is very durable and resistant to wear and tear.
Solid oak is the most popular timber choice, partly because many kitchens are made using oak and also because oak offers a neutral tone that’s often used with painted panels, high gloss kitchen styles cabinets in UK or other timbers.
Solid walnut is the most premium solid timber option and offers a dramatic dark tone, this can be used to create contrast in a kitchen design. This luxurious timber choice has been traditionally associated with chateaus libraries or high end wine cellars and by choosing walnut customers can incorporate this sophistication into the center of their home.
For a paler scheme beech or maple are other alternatives to oak. Beech is strong and durable with a close straight grain, polishes well and offers a small cost saving on oak.
Maple is more durable than oak and is one of the hardest woods suitable for kitchens, standing up to dings and dents, maple is priced slightly higher than oak.
