In-frame kitchens

An In-Frame kitchen is a traditional style of kitchen where each door is within its own frame.  These doors are always bespoke and made with solid wood frames and drawer fronts with traditional brass hinges by our team of skilled cabinetmakers.  We use soft-close, solid dovetailed oak drawers on all our drawers as standard.  Your kitchen can either be made in a wood of your choice such as oak or walnut, or can be hand painted in any colour.

The design starts with a plain shaker door but can be customised with different styles of beading around the inner panel which can also be added to the frame.  End Panels are needed for an in-frame kitchen and these can be plain, framed, plain V grooved or beaded tongue and groove, making each kitchen unique.

The plinth can be customised too in a framed kitchen.  It can be recessed under the cabinet, integrated flush with the frame to give a modern fresh look, or laid on as skirting for a very traditional feel.  Many aspects can have contrasting finishes such as the plinth and cornice left as oak against a painted kitchen which can give warmth to a kitchen.

Lay-on kitchens

A lay-on kitchen gives you great flexibility in design, from very traditional to ultra-modern; however, it is easily recognisable as the door lies in front of the carcass.  These can have either bespoke or bought in doors depending on your budget and desired style but you can always be assured of the Robert Charles Quality as we still hand-make every carcass.  All our lay on kitchens come with soft close doors and drawers as standard and with award winning blum drawer boxes.

There is a huge array of colours to choose from and make matching carcasses meaning that no end panels are necessary unless a hand painted finish is required.  Plinths are recessed but can be either colour matched or made in a contrasting oak depending on the style of the kitchen.

Door styles

Door styles can play a pivotal role in the look, feel and design of your kitchen. No matter what ideas you have for your dream kitchen, Robert Charles has a door style for every home design. From traditional to shaker, rustic to slab; our kitchen cabinets compliment a wide range of kitchen styles and designs.
