Cheap and stylish kitchen design? It’s as easy as ply!

13 Feb

Sorry guys, but there’s nothing like a terrible pun to get Wednesday off to a cracking start in my eyes!

In all seriousness though, I’ve long planned for my next kitchen to have basic IKEA carcasses with Little Greene painted MDF doors, but these bare plywood cabinets and shelves take that design idea one step further. And I have to admit, I really, really love it…

As a girl with tastes above my station, finding a simple and stylish design idea that would be cheap to do is a rare occurrence. But knock me down with a feather, this one really is both. I’m sold.

    I love it! Where did you get the cabinets from?

    It is rather lovely and great with all the white kitchen goods.

    Definitely a cheap option and the layout/structure is nice, but to me it looks unfinished :/

    I bought and painted my kitchen cupboards from Ikea 20 years and they’re still going strong. They even survived a house move !

      Agreed. Now THIS is a clean design. Nicely done on this one.

      I have a question: how do these weather? It looks like a natural finish. How are these protected?
