Why Buy Made To Measure Kitchen Units?
The kitchen is the heart of the home and where you spend the most time with your family, therefore you want it to shine.
By selecting, Made To Measure Kitchen Units, you can design your kitchen around your requirements and kitchen shape, meaning that no area is wasted! You can create as much storage and worktop space as you want, in the kitchen shape that you have.
It’s also important to bear in mind the quality for Bespoke Kitchen Cupboards and Units. Some homeowners complain that their expensive, brand new kitchens start to deteriorate almost immediately after being fitted. It sounds unlikely, but it really does happen. The reason why this happens is because many people are drawn into what they believe to be ‘good’ offers by kitchen companies without reading the small print. They believe they’re getting a good deal, but really they end up paying more for suboptimal materials.
Kitchens get a lot of use - they’re not only where we prepare and cook breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and supper, where we prepare drinks, but they’re also where we wash dishes, do the laundry, dine, and socialise. The kitchen is, perhaps, the most versatile, and therefore most used, room of the entire house. Low quality materials just aren’t going to cut it here, which is why we only use the highest quality materials for our kitchen units, cabinets and cupboards. We only use melamine faced chipboard by the EGGER company which is renowned for producing high quality wooden boards.
Which Kitchen Unit Materials and Styles are Most Rigid?
What a lot of people don’t always realise is that the materials and styles of kitchen cabinets don’t really affect how strong or sturdy the unit is.
Kitchen carcasses are almost exclusively made from chipboard, with wraps and finishes placed on top to create the different looks and styles. In terms of coverings, they are all very durable, so you’ve got plenty of options if you’re looking for replacement kitchen units.
What’s the Right Thickness of Kitchen Units?
You’ll notice that all our kitchen units come in 18mm thicknesses. Typically, 15mm and 18mm are considered normal for kitchen cupboards, although some companies even offer kitchen cupboards that are a mere 12mm thick! However, we know how sturdy kitchen cabinets really need to be, so we only offer the thicker, more rigid 18mm option.
Our kitchen carcasses are actually the same thickness as furniture offered by even the most high profile suppliers in the UK. While you could get away with a 15mm thickness, the extra 3mm just give a bit of a buffer, ensuring that your kitchen units stay standing upright no matter what you throw at them.
