Comments: If there's a system that can be played...

A very interesting post. But I know the problems of having to follow the critical path of kitchen installation. In our case: (a) gut the room; (b) screed the floor and wait for it to dry; (c) tile floor and assemble floor-standing furniture; (d) template worktop and send to manufacture; (e) install worktop; (f) template splashback and send to manufacture; (g) install splashback; (h) finish installing services and commission. Each step took from several days to several weeks, even in a pre-COVID era!

Tim - at least with the kitchen the floor is done (albeit we have to follow the existing peninsular layout due to tiles missing underneath and tiles being obsolete). We've dealt with Corian worktops before so at least we know the score there, and they will do their own templating and manufacture worktop/splashback in one, and then fit it.

But sadly the kitchen is months if not years off yet... If only we could find a decent joiner who can make solid wood unit fronts for us. We want light wood and everywhere does painted ones or vinyl wrapped ones these days.

Yes Modom isn't trendy, and they don't like it! Mr BW does have all the tools to do it himself though... and the way we're going (not finding what we want - even in very high end stuff which we don't intend to get as it is neither Value nor good enough quality for the price), we might just have to buy a cheap kitchen to get the carcassses, and replace the doors one by one as time allows - one every six months for the next 20 years...

Search on ebay for old mfi kitchens. They had solid wood doors. I liked the Henley one
