Originally established in 1867 and cementing a legacy in wood working, for the past 35 years Burbidge have been manufacturing kitchen units and accessories built around their deep rooted knowledge of wood production and design flair to revive and reinvent modern classic design.
Quintessentially British, the company boast both British design and manufacturing, and most of their ranges are handcrafted in their own local factory.
Kitchens are sold through their network of approved retailers, however the starting point in the journey for a customer is often their own website or a visit to their 1500m2 in-house showroom, located at their head office in Coventry.
Here they have created realistic rooms sets which feature their latest kitchen concepts and innovative design suggestions.
Each room set is painstakingly designed to showcase the different kitchen styles and inspire customers to see more than just the kitchen units, but how a whole design concept can come together.
It was with this in mind that they discovered Concreate and selected it as the ideal product to complement the room sets for two of their most contemporary ranges, the Otto Gloss and Otto Matt kitchens.
The Otto ranges share the same sleek design, one offering a superb high gloss finish adding a touch of luxury, and the other a flawless matt painted finish described as the epitome of cool urban living.
Contrasting these kitchens with the warm, urban textures of Concreate floor and wall panels has delivered two outstanding room sets.
Concreate natural grey wall panels have been used to create striking feature walls which also serve as the kitchen splashback. The combination of grey, white and blue tones available in both kitchen ranges all lend themselves perfectly to the tone and texture of the contrasting concrete.
Teamed with Concreate flooring, the sleek kitchen lines are enhanced and the finished style is an ultra-contemporary balance of textures that can be created in any kitchen.
The easy maintenance and durability of Concreate floor and wall panels make them ideal for use in the kitchen. Concreate is sealed with 3 coats of Concreate high solid oil which seals the open pores of the concrete surface keeping it water and stain resistant.
Once installed correctly it is virtually impossible to damage the durable surface, and keeping them clean is easy with Wood’s Good Natural Care Spray which is simple to apply and easy to clean with using an applicator mop. They floor panels are also ideal for use with all modern underfloor heating systems.
The Burbidge showroom is also a great example of using Concreate floor panels to create a polished concrete floor in a temporary setting. The simple tongue and groove system on each lightweight panel allows the floors to be laid loose leaf when used temporarily, rather than their permanent adhesive installation method. They are a fantastic way to introduce concrete floors into short-term event and exhibition displays and can be easily dismantled for use again.
