Bespoke, handcrafted kitchens
Plain English’s bespoke, handcrafted kitchens are made by skilled joiners in Suffolk who have been trained in the techniques of 18th and 19th century cabinet making. Drawers are dovetailed and made by hand for each cupboard and plinths are an integral part of the frame. Every hand painted kitchen gets three coats of paint in our workshop prior to installation and then a further coat is applied, also by hand, once the kitchen has been fitted on site.
Plain English is a traditional joinery company. We use the techniques of 18th and 19th century cabinetmakers. Skilled joiners make our cupboards by hand in our Suffolk workshop. We don't like gadgets and plastic bits. Most of our drawers run on candlewaxed wooden runners. Our shelf pegs are hand turned for us by a small company that makes wooden nails. Our baskets are hand-woven for us in Suffolk from willow grown along the banks of the River Box. The local forge makes our iron shelf brackets and hanging pot rails. The pull-out trays in our floor cupboards were copied from the slides in an 18th century linen press.
