Mr and Mrs F from Smarden in Kent wanted matching cupboards that would feel part of the original cottage. They had a very clear idea of the style required and knew exactly what was going where behind the drawers and doors. After the quotation and drawings were prepared and accepted oak samples were polished to give a colour choice that suited the room.
The cabinets were 56″high x approx. 29″wide x 16″deep (1422mm x 736mm x 406mm).The front portion (facia)was constructed from European oak with character features or knots and the cabinets from moisture resistant 18mm / 6mm boards. The back sections were spray painted in white and a distressed, quality hand polished finish was applied to the facias.
The cabinets were fully fitted,tops being scribed to the alcove and side fillets to the walls.The right hand unit also had to straddle pipework and allow access to a drain cock, so the plinth is also removable.
