Kitchen of the Week: British Standard Kitchen in Bold Blue

We recently featured a color-blocked kitchen inspired by a British Standard design. Here’s the same inspirational kitchen in bold cobalt blue. Too much? Or just enough?

British Standard (it’s an offshoot of the higher-end kitchen fittings company Plain English) offers “sensible cupboards at sensible prices for people with good taste but modest means. British Standard is a call to arms for British manufacturing and for honest, properly made products. Their modest appearance is matched by their modest price—around £7,000 (over $10,000) for an average-size kitchen, including worktops—because all you pay for is the joinery. There is no bespoke design, delivery, or fitting service; you do that yourself.”
