Timber-Look Batten Inspiration for Your Kitchen

The timber look is becoming more and more popular for today’s kitchen designs, with interiors harking back to classic country styles or adding a natural touch to a modern space. As more of us have been spending time in our kitchens over the past year we have craved some natural beauty to surround us – and the timber look is a great way to add that to any kitchen space. From wooden benchtops to timber-look splashback designs, timber has certainly made a comeback. 

Timber battens have also taken off in recent years, coming to the forefront of interior design for their versatility and beauty. Clean lines, curves and waves and texture are all amazing benefits of using timber or timber-look battens to adorn your kitchen.

DecoBatten®, the timber-look aluminium batten system from DECO Australia, is the ideal option for adding that warm natural accent to a modern, country or unique kitchen design. Here are some of our favourite ways to incorporate timber-look battens into your kitchen. 

Feature Walls

When it comes to interior decoration, you can’t go wrong with a batten wall. Feature walls are the classic way to apply timber-look battens, adding extra texture and depth to an otherwise plain wall. Put a twist on the classic batten wall by creating wave effects with different sizes, using curved timber-look battens, or even create a partition to separate a room by using large, floor-to-ceiling one-piece battens.

Kitchen Benches and Islands

One of the most popular ways to incorporate battens into your kitchen is by installing them around your island or kitchen bench. Batten bench fronts can make a statement, turning a functional object into the focal point of your room. DecoBatten® two-piece QuickClick™ battens offer a simple snap-together system ideal for installing on the side of a benchtop without needing a backing plate. 


Cabinetry and Cupboard Doors

Carry the batten theme across your kitchen by installing small two-piece battens on the the front of your cabinetry or cupboard doors. DecoBatten® timber-look battens are lightweight and will not impact the function of your cupboard doors, but will add extra elegance and flair.

Outdoor Kitchens

These days, home design is all about flowing seamlessly from indoors to outdoors, and outdoor kitchens are growing in popularity. Timber-look aluminium battens add a stunning contemporary edge to outdoor kitchen design, while being durable enough to withstand the weather or splashes from your pool, or even the heat from a barbecue! 

We love this stunning outdoor kitchen barbecue and bar from designers Oak & Orange. Using 25x25mm QuickClick™ DecoBattens, they integrated the popular batten look to create a coastal vibe for their al fresco area and add visual interest to their outdoor benches.

Get visitors to your home to look up in awe by installing a timber batten ceiling. A popular option in interior decoration, timber-look batten ceilings incorporate different styles of lighting, creating a visually interesting feature for your space. The pairing of natural timber with light adds a harmonious sense of balance to your kitchen, and the best thing about DecoBattens® is that they are lightweight and easy to install on the roof.
