From the founders of bespoke luxury kitchen brand Plain English, British Standard marries traditional joinery in standard sizes with simple detailing to create honest, timeless and beautifully simple, off-the-peg wooden cupboards for the kitchen and beyond – pantry, bedroom, bathroom, dressing room, home office or potting shed.
Launched in 2012 as the sister company to Plain English, British Standard shares the same values in cupboard making – traditional craftsmanship and a careful selection of quality materials – everything is made by the same team of dedicated craftsmen in Suffolk, designed to last a lifetime. The difference? British Standard cupboards come in a range of standard sizes, a pared back selection of pieces that work together in multiple configurations – providing you with everything you need and nothing you don’t.
A British Standard project is collaborative. A free design service enables customers to identify a layout that is as enduring and practical as the cupboards themselves. Using accurate dimensions, the British Standard designer works with the client to achieve a layout that fulfils their practical requirements and overall aesthetic aim.
British Standard Cupboards come in a range of standard sizes, starting at £590. An average sized kitchen comes in at around £8,000.
British Standard by Plain English has just launched its new website, via which you can shop the range, book a free design consultation and find useful advice on every step of the process – from planning your design to installing and painting your cupboards: www.britishstandardcupboards.co.uk
