Something that people often don’t know a lot about before making the decision to do a house extension or renovation is kitchen cabinetry and the various types available. If you are particular about the aesthetic of the kitchen you are hoping to achieve it is useful knowledge, as your choice can make a significant difference to the finish of the area.
A decision that is key to the warmth, energy efficiency and light transmission of your home extension or custom new build is the type of joinery that you choose to install.
