Wood you believe it

Solid timber is wonderful – but pricey. Masterclass, which has been designing and manufacturing kitchens from its British workshops for over 40 years, has come up with a clever solution: giving its cabinets and drawer fronts a close-grained finish that resembles real wood. Just launched, it’s available in four colours across seven furniture styles. Kitchens start at £7500. www.masterclasskitchens.co.uk
