MDF with foil kitchen cupboards consist of a medium-density fiberboard core covered with a foil laminate. This type of cupboard provides a smooth and seamless appearance due to the foil’s consistent finish. Foil is available in a wide range of colors and patterns, allowing for your input to match all sizes of kitchen styles. MDF with foil cupboards are generally more affordable than solid wood options, making them a popular choice for budget-conscious homeowners. However, it’s worth mentioning that the foil surface can be more susceptible to scratches and damage compared to other materials.

Solid timber with veneer kitchen cupboards feature a medium-density fiberboard core, similar to the foil option, but instead of a laminate, they have a thin layer of real wood veneer applied to the surface. Veneer provides a natural wood look and texture, adding warmth and authenticity to your kitchen.

Ideal for pricing up a small kitchen, either of these options are suitable when working to a budget. MDF and MFC construction offers a balance between the aesthetics of solid wood and the affordability of MDF.

After being unhappy with their previous addition, Suzy and Elliot reconfigured the design to gain a more sociable, open-plan kitchen.

When we bought our two-bedroom bungalow a decade ago, we couldn’t wait to extend out into the garden and convert the loft to create two bedrooms,’ says Suzy. ‘In retrospect, though, I wish we’d taken more time to plan it, as we ended up with a kitchen that had no view of the garden and felt dark.

After living with the layout for eight years, Suzy asked a team of tradespeople that work for her family’s interiors firm, Helmanis & Howell, to knock down the walls dividing the kitchen and two reception rooms. This allowed the whole space to be opened up and filled with natural light through two sets of existing French doors at the rear.
