Shaker Grey Painted Timber | Real Kitchens


Wendy from Wetherby “Linwood Painted (FARROW AND BALL DOVE TALE NO 267). A friend recommended DIY kitchens to me. I made several visits to the showroom and took my time to choose my units and adjust the layout; each time the staff were very helpful.

I chose Linwood Painted in F&B Dove Tale. I had already chosen the granite worktop and was struggling to find units in the right colour to compliment the worktop so it was great to be able to have a bespoke colour. I used extra tall wall units to fit round my new boiler and throughout the kitchen to match, including the dresser units. I chose curved base units for the ends of the dresser to create extra space and character.

The curved base units are made up of two cupboards which I think is a good design both visually and makes the cupboard contents much more accessible than in a single cupboard, especially as mine are 300mm. I have pull out wire baskets in two my other 300mm base units and I find these work really well. Initially I had an angled cornice but changed this to use more of the straight pelmet as I think this gives a more contemporary finish to my kitchen.

I ordered samples of the handles after the units were installed and found it easier to choose when I could see the various handles with my units. I also bought my lovely sink through DIY.

I am delighted with the quality, value for money and look of my new kitchen from DIY. Thank you!!”
