In 2012, we launched British Standard Cupboards – a range for customers looking for a simple, well-made alternative to the bespoke joinery offered by our sister brand and parent company, Plain English Design.

Due to an increased volume of Plain English sales from their new flagship showroom in Pimlico, London and expansion across the USA, the entire capacity of our Suffolk workshop, which is shared with Plain English, is needed to meet the demand for production of Plain English joinery.

Therefore, the decision has been taken to cease production of British Standard Cupboards and focus the business on the growth of Plain English Design.

Our order books are currently full, and we will not be taking any new orders for British Standard Cupboards.

Plain English offers ‘PE30’ a supply-only range of cupboards. If you would like to explore an alternative to British Standard, please visit Plain English’s Pimlico showroom and explore the range at:

Plain English Pimlico, 61 Pimlico Road, SW1W 8NE
T: 0207 486 2674

We will be closing our Hoxton Square Showroom, and our design service will no longer be available.

Our current order book will be fulfilled as expected over the coming months. If you have recently placed an order with us or are awaiting a completion date, this change will not affect your order. We will continue to supply add-ons and customer service for existing customers with orders in the pipeline, or for clients with existing British Standard kitchens.

We have built up quite a fan base over the last 12 years and have become dear to many people’s hearts. We have had a wonderful team behind us, helping to look after our clients and build our reputation. We thank you all for your dedication and support.
