I love this but remember that if you have high ceilings this look might not be easily achieved. We have had to go bespoke for our cupboard wall as the kitchen providers didn’t do tall enough doors.

Yes, Karen, I see where you're coming from... Despite all the advantages, a solid wall of tall units without handles, can look overwhelming & oppressive... almost monsterish! Imho, it needs to be broken up with shelving or somesuch (and I'm excluding ovens) to detract from a possible cold, clinical look.

I will have a semi-solid wall comprising a broom cupboard, fridge (free standing and 54cm wide, so it won't be an imposing block - also cheaper!) with a cupboard above it and a floor to ceiling larder immediately next to it. All the food confined to one area. The rest is hob, sink and work surface on two sides of an L, one facing the 140cm window. In my dreams, as yet!
