State of the art appliances and shiny worktops get all the attention, but the real star in any kitchen is the cabinetry and design.
Quality kitchen cabinets are made like good furniture, but it's the features you may not see immediately that ultimately determine how well your next set of cabinets will survive in a busy, working kitchen.
All Great British Interiors carcasses are made with state of the art Egger Board which has a high static load and is used in high quality furniture. All carcasses are glued, dowelled and screwed making them extremely durable and ensuring they will last for a long time.
Hardwood, dovetail joints inside the drawers are standard at Great British Interiors. These joints use interlocking wedge-shaped elements called tails and pins to connect two pieces of wood. These joints resist forces applied to them as well as having a decorative quality. It is rare for such joints to break even under frequent, stressful situations.
Our drawers have a wooden bottom, slotted in grooves and not just pinned like some cheaper drawers on the market which have a high chance of failing. Unlike these cheaper imitations, all of our drawers are fitted with fully extendable, soft close 40kg or 60kg runners depending on the size.
Strong shelves are essential because cheaper, weaker shelves can bow under pressure. We use 19mm or 22mm thick shelves as standard which are strong and have the ability withstand the rigours of day-to-day kitchen life. Our larders and Chef’s Pantry’s have a 50mm solid oak front edge to stop them bowing under weight.
Kitchen Showrooms are normally in excellent condition because they are usually not very old, they have not been used very much and therefore tend to look perfect. In our showroom in Kent we have a Kitchen display that is used as an everyday kitchen which was installed over 5 years ago and still looks amazing. This, we believe is testament to the quality of our workmanship and the materials used to build all of the kitchens at Great British interiors.
