Materials and Carcasses

Colours and handles are the most important factor when designing a kitchen. We are able to use our vast experience to advise our clients with not just colour options but other important factors such as textures and gloss content.    

Material and Carcass Options

There are a vast range of options to choose from when it comes to materials. There are man made products that offer strength and reliability. In contrast there is the natural beauty of hardwoods. All have different properties and Minerva can explain and offer samples for all the options availible.


At Minerva we pride ourselves on the strength and quality of every part of our kitchens. This applies not just to what you touch every day, but also what holds it together. Carceasses can be produced in many different materials, some are beautiful to touch others more utilitarian and cost effective. Whatver you require there is an option.



There are an extraordinary amount of materials availible to craft your kitchen, some hold a perfect flat paint finish well, while others such as walnut and oak are beautiful simply lacquered to protect the finish. We can advise the best options for design and use based on each clients individual specification.


Drawers and Hinges

Drawers are made from solid hardwood as standard and have the options of having a dovetail joint construction. As standard all drawers and doors feature high grade German engineered soft close systems. These are fully adjustable to ensure you cupboards and drawers always fit perfectly.


Drawers are always lacquered to ensure an easy wipe finish. We can make cutlery inserts to your exact specification wherever required.
