The Palermo vinyl classic kitchen has everything you could want from your new kitchen cabinets. The colour range whether a single colour or a wood grain finish is wide and varied. The wood grain vinyls available tend to make the kitchen more classic, while the single colour vinyls will tend to make a more contemporary fist of it. The range includes many accessories such as cooker canopies and similar. Curved doors are of course available.
Here the floor is finished with a timber look alike material probably Karndean or Amtico. I certainly recommend Karndean as a kitchen floor as it is hard wearing and can tolerate wet and leaks, to a better extent than a real timber floor. Laying the floor in a herringbone pattern is an excellent idea, the outcome looks like a traditional parquet floor. Here at Martha Mockford, we offer a range of flooring materials from Karndean. This offer allows us to provide suitable kitchen floors that will last and be a pleasure to clean.
The frame and center panel of the Erin natural oak is selected to offer a pippy or knotty finish. These knots are filled and finished over so that one does not jet the J cloth stuck as one wipes away the day. Once filled and prepared the oak door is sprayed with a clear lacquer to a sheen of around 20, which is pretty matt in these terms. This Erin is a sister to the Erin painted and is often used in conjunction with the painted version in the same kitchen
As with any lacquered oak door, the Erin is best cleaned with a damp cloth on occasion. The lacquer is waterproof, but one should not use a wet cloth. I tend to think it can be advantageous to apply a furniture polish on occasion. I feel that if there were any cracks in the lacquer, for instance in the joints; then this would help to protect the door. The polish will aso give the kitchen an annual smell of new furniture which is a pleasure if nothing else.
The Langton shaker door opens within the cabinet frame. As with all front framed kitchens this cabinet frame is fixed rigidly to the cabinet itself. The Langton cabinet frame is the same frame as that of the Petworth and Salcombe also from Burbidge, though in this instance the frame is beaded. This bead offers the overall range of front framed doors from Burbidge a good mainstay between the simple shaker of the Petworth and the strongly traditional Salcombe.
The Langton and it's sisters the Petworth and Salcombe are all front frames kitchens from Burbidge. We receive these kitchen fronts into our workshops and build them onto our high-density cabinets. As with many of the kitchens we build, the Langton has a wide range of matching accessories.
The detailing of the Cornell painted kitchen is infinite. Unlike most kitchens today, the drawer front to this kitchen is as detailed as the door itself. The overall effect of the detailing is to offer a very classic design that is more than suitable. The classic design ethic of the Cornell is enhanced by a large range of detailed accessories such as toothed cornice, pilasters, glazed doors, and plate racks.
Some of the Edwardian properties into which this kitchen may go often have high ceilings; fortunately, the range includes tall wall units of 900 mm tall. When tall wall units such as these are utilised in a design the kitchen naturally finishes at 2300mm over the floor. A standard modern ceiling is at 2400mm (eight feet). I tend to recommend a medium height wall unit (720 mm) for standard ceiling heights.
The matrix of doors available in the Malmo contemporary range includes a significant number of curved door options allowing one to build an entirely round kitchen with internal and external curved doors to suit. The Malmo range is compatible with the Isala range which is also supplied to us by from Burbidge in Coventry.
Unlike the over sprayed foil specification of the Isala, this Malmo door is a lacquer sprayed directly onto the prepared Mfd foundation. The Malmo comes with a wider range of accessories than the simpler Isala range, though are compatible with each other. One of the features of the Burbidge Malmo range of accessories are slab doors (i.e. without a handle at all). There are times in a design where one needs a matching blank slab. If you were brave enough to synergise with handleless and handled doors one could include the Otto into any Remo design and add a feature handle here and there.
Are you looking for new kitchen doors, new worktops perhaps a new sink? Your kitchen can probably be offered a new lease of life for a very reasonable price. No hidden extras, No hard sell; just we are here and it can be done.

Martha Mockford – Affordable Design
A design has to be affordable; a design that is unaffordable is an aspiration. We all need our aspirations but they do not put food on the table.
I derive tremendous pleasure from what I do for a living. I solve problems; my solutions are kitchen designs. I own Martha Mockford; I run it from my workplace, not from the golf course. I offer solutions at under £10 thousand, I have done work in excess of £70 thousand; I do not mind. I enjoy designing, specifying, pricing and implementing kitchens; it is what I do when not in my garden.
Here at Martha Mockford, we stand by our work. The use of this phrase comes from my agricultural background. At an auction the farmer will physically stand by his cow or tractor that he is selling; purchasers understand from this that the farmer has total faith in the item he is selling now and in the future.
I have total faith in the goods services we offer at Martha Mockford. We stand by our work; we are usually recommended by our clients to new clients.
