Product comparison

We’ve taken the time to compare kitchen products in detail across all of the major high street kitchen retailers. We’ve gone into detail for you with everything from substrate, finish, edging and door thickness. We make sure you’re well informed before committing to a major new purchase, it’s what you should expect from a trusted brand.

The 3 must knows

If technical detail isn’t for you then here’s the 3 things that you have to think about it when it comes to your new kitchen specification

  1. 1. Finish
    How is your chosen door finished – is it painted, wrapped or edged?
  2. 2. Substrate
    What raw material has been used, MDF or MFC (chipboard)
  3. 3. Construct
    How it’s finished, particularly on the edges
