Door styles

Many kitchens will keep to one theme throughout the room, but there are really no hard and fast rules. We have lots of options for you. Below, you’ll find our list of styles for all our different doors:

Ultimately it will depend on how decorative you want your finished kitychen to be.

All the doors can be made with Various Material, Moisture Resistant MDF is our Norm as it is strong, durable, doesnt warp or soak up moisture, we can also make the doors using Beech, but you will need to sign a wood disclaimer if you want this, see our FAQ’s on what the cabinet are made of for more info

Plinth styles

Listed here are all the different styles for our plinths:
 
P1 Plinth

Plant on Plinth - This is our standard and most popular plinth.  This is best when you have uneven or sloping floors as it can be scribed in to the floor

P2 Plinth

Leg Plinth - legs on each cabinet and plinth set back.  This is our most Unforgiving plinth – if your floor is not level then this isnt a good option as it will look like your kitchen is floating

P3 Plinth Recessed Plinth - As with most modern kitchens this is recessed and gives an open feel.

Glazing styles

Take a look at the different options for glazing:
 

Tall doors

Wood is a natural product and it does move, so whenever we have a tall door we have to have a cross bar to help the door keep its shape and not bend, the placement of this bar can change the entire look of your kitchen.
Below are some examples of what we can do
 
70:30 door Bar – 
50:50 door Bar – 
3 Panel door Bar – 
 
General Cabinet information:
All of our cabinets are made from either Moisture Resisatnt MDF, Beech or oak doors and frames (dependant on your choice) all carcaces are made from Oak Veneered MDF, and all drawer boxes are Dovetailed Oak or veneered oak with Oak ply base and soft close runners where available. Heights, widths and depths are all adjustable between the minimum and maximums for each cabinet, there is a 50mm service void as standard on all cabinets.
 
A note on painting and oiling:
We can deliver all your cabinets and doors to you in their unpainted state, ready for you to finish yourself.
 
If you prefer we can either spray paint, or oil them for you in our factory. For this service we offer one colour as standard and charge £100 thereafter for every different colour you may choose.
 
We offer a colour matching service, all you need to do is simply provide us with a swatch of the colour you wish to have your cupboards painted with. We will always try to match as closely as possible, but there may on occasion be slight variations.
 
If you’re planning on painting or oiling your doors yourself, we have a few ‘how to…’ guides which feature on our ‘Available Woods’ and our ‘Painting’ page.
 
We’re always on hand if you need us or want to talk through any aspect of your brand new kitchen design. If you can’t get into the showroom, you can simply call us on 01202481177, or if you prefer, you can email us at office@classic-kitchens-direct.com. We’d love to talk to you and make your dream kitchen a reality!
