Kitchens, bench tops & surfaces

Here at Wooden Earth Creations Ltd we focus on innovation, originality and customer satisfaction. We pride ourselves on producing quality, long lasting kitchens and bench tops that are not only functional and practical, but a beautiful addition to any home or office. Well made and durable, we pay full attention to the details that turn a dream kitchen idea into reality as our kitchens are designed specifically to our customers requirements.

We offer a complete design, build and installation service to new and existing customers.  Our kitchen design software programmes enable customers to view their kitchen designs in 3D colour with all appliances and fittings.  Customers are able to ‘walk’ through their new kitchen design and make any changes there and then, simply by modifying the conceptual design ideas until the perfect conclusion has been reached.

We offer the best quality in materials and European hardware.  We manufacture quality composite quartz & granite bench tops and surfaces and offer our clients other engineered stone alternatives, such as the Stoneology range as featured in a number of our kitchens. We have been manufacturing Bisazzastone and Granit 90 surfaces for over a decade. These attractive, hard wearing surfaces can be designed and made exactly to the customers specifications.

We are a ‘Stoneology’ fabricator in Northland and are proud to offer this exciting new range to customers. Our unique WEC wood oil formulation, lacquer or a wax finish adds the final touch to a kitchen that is not only attractive and stylish but functional, practical and guaranteed to be the focal point of any home.
