Kitchens

Every kitchen made in our workshop is as unique and individual as the clients who work with us. Despite not taking a one size fits all approach to design, each kitchen is given the same exacting level of detail, attention and pride. All our kitchen cabinets have the following attributes; features we think are essential but can sometimes be overlooked:

Cabinets are fully assembled using mortise and tenon, glue and screw construction for unbeatable strength, durability and rigidity.
Full 18mm and 12mm lacquered furniture grade birch plywood.
All exposed plywood edges are hand finished with two coats of carnauba and beeswax.
Base cabinets are fitted with heavy duty adjustable legs designed to stand the test of time.
High quality Grass soft close hinges and drawer closings are fitted as standard, as well as quick release hinges for efficient installation.
Adjustable shelf apertures are sleeved with your choice of brass or chrome inserts teamed with recessed shelf supports.
Wall cabinets are 350mm deep which allows for a large dinner plate to lie flat.
Wall cabinets are hung with concealed brackets with a 200kg load capacity.
Base cabinets have a 70mm service void to enable easy access to pipe work.
We have a full range of cabinet inserts available such as magic corners, pull-out inserts, recycling bins etc.
All cabinets are made to order in our workshop in Highland Perthshire. Each kitchen is laid out here, just as it will be in your home. This allows us to fine tune it to your space which enables the installation process to be considerably accelerated. We welcome clients to come and have a play with their kitchen at any stage in its evolution.
Delivery and installation is undertaken by Birkwood cabinet makers, who will know every detail of your kitchen by the time it is ready to leave the Birkwood workshop.

Worktops

We have an exhaustive range of worktops which can be specified for your kitchen. Birch plywood worktops with exposed edges and a laminate surface are our speciality for our matching cabinets, and we have a large choice of solid timber surfaces to compliment our hand-painted cabinets. Along with plywood and timber you can opt for granite, quartz, Silestone, Corian, composite...the choice is yours.

Appliances

Free-standing, built in, buy from us, buy your own – we will work around your choice. We offer appliances from Smeg and Rangemaster, but as long as you can inform us of the model number and type of your appliances we can build our cabinets to suit. The same also applies to sinks and taps.

Ordering Process

The best place to start is to work out roughly what your Birkwood kitchen might cost you. Click here to use our cost calculator. This will give you a pretty good idea of budget for your kitchen project. If this estimate fits within your spending plan and you would like to work with us, then please contact us, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Designing your kitchen is something we like to do fully in collaboration with you. We are more than happy and able to have an initial chat via email and phone but we would urge prospective clients to make the trip to visit us too. We have a small but perfectly formed showroom where our two distinctive styles of kitchens are showcased, and our Smeg coffee machine is on hand for a caffeine fix. Bring to our table your drawings, Pinterest page, clippings, architects plans, mood board – the more of your ideas and inspiration the better. Once we’ve had this initial get together we will work with you on designs until you are happy with the final drawings and our firm quote.

At this stage we’ll come and see you, to take detailed, accurate measurements prior to making your kitchen. Manufacturing takes around 6-8 weeks for birch plywood/laminate and a little longer for hand-painted (we will advise you of current timescales). We’ll try to always fit around your timescales, especially if it’s a renovation or new build project where timescales can often need a degree of flexibility.

Installation

When we provide you with a final quote for your project, we will include a price for installation if you are based in Scotland. Outside of Scotland the extra cost of accommodation tends to make our installation price prohibitive, but we will happily provide a quote upon request. Our Birkwood cabinet makers undertake all installations. We don’t subcontract to other kitchen fitters because there is no-one better placed to fit your kitchen perfectly than the same person who made it. Because we lay out your kitchen in our workshop exactly how it will be in your room, installations are swift and precise. We are happy to liaise with your chosen trades people – plumber, electrician, tiler and decorator – to make installation as seamless as possible. In general a Birkwood kitchen will take around 4-5 days to fit.
