What colour matched cabinets/units do you have available?


Heron Grey CarcaseTo ensure you can design your kitchen, so that it looks as good as you can get it, we offer an outstanding range of colour matched cabinets/units to go with your chosen door style.

Most companies offer between 1 & 4 different cabinet options but we don’t think that is enough. So we looked at our door ranges and came up with a selection of 7 different cabinet colours to try and compliment any door style that you choose.

So, if you have an oak door then you can choose from an Oak finished cabinet or if you are opting for a cream door then we have Cashmere and Alabaster cabinets to choose from.

We have to apologise though as all these different options will add a little more time to your kitchen planning experience:-)

Cabinet colours available

As mentioned above, there are 7 different cabinet colours available, these are

  1. Alabaster
  2. Cashmere
  3. Graphite
  4. Heron Grey
  5. Light Grey
  6. Natural Lancaster Oak
  7. White

See the image below to see these in more detail.

    Hello, for my kitchen I am interested in the Norton doors in Cobham Blue which seems to have a recommended carcase of lancaster oak but I was interested to see what this door style looks like in a photo with both this and the graphite carcase. Are there any photos available which show the Norton cobham blue doors with different colour cabinets?

    On the tall larder units 2.15m in height is a panel end needed if I was to place a smaller fridge or unit next to it so the carcass colour difference is not visible?
    Also for wall units are the sides colour matched?

    Lastly, not carcass related but do you profile drain runs in the real wood worktops for Belfast sinks or is this some that would have to be done on site?

    • DIY Kitchens says:

      Hi, the unit material is different from that of the doors and end panels. If you are opting or a gloss kitchen for example, then end panels would be needed, if you wanted to carry on the look of the kitchen. Our units have a matt finish. Any drainers cut into worktops would be done onsite, by your kitchen fitter.

    Hi, is the natural Lancaster oak on Helmsley cabinets finished with anything? meaning can it be treated with oil if other colour is preferred?

    July 21, 2021 at 5:07 pm
    • DIY Kitchens says:

      Hi, the carcasses are made from MFC, not solid wood. Natural Lancaster Oak is the look it gives. No treatment is needed.

    Hi, I have your Clayton kitchen in Dakar and want to add a small beading along the top of my tiles in the same colour, could you provide me with the RAL code for Dakar paint please, or do you do an aerosol tin ?

    March 13, 2021 at 5:25 pm
    • DIY Kitchens says:

      Hi, we don’t have RAL codes as the paints are all our own mixes. However, we do sell the paint and it is £15 +vat per litre and it can be ordered from our sales team on 01977 608 418.

      Hi, our website puts cashmere as the nearest matched unit colour, although you don’t need to choose this. You can see all 15 of our unit colours above. Free unit & door samples can also be ordered here, if you want to see the colours in the light of day.

    I’ve just had by altino alabaster kitchen fitted and I was expecting the carcass to be sane coour as the doors but obviously without the shine . However now they are on the wall there is a clear difference in my opinion between the carcass colour and the doors even though are both alabaster. I had to return the end panels, I bought as I didn’t quite have enough room to add them. Do you have any suggestions; as I’m worried the colour difference may be even more obvious when the cornices are fitted

    May 12, 2018 at 8:18 pm
    • Diy Kitchens says:

      Hi Angela, the doors are MDF with an acrylic front and gloss finish; the units are matt painted MFC. The units will look different to the doors and end panels are advised if you want the gloss look to run from end to end.

    I want to color match some existing woodwork to the Kitchen Units/Carcassess. Can you tell me the BS/RAL number or the match or nearest for Light Grey and Carbon or Graphite please

    I’m looking to purchase a Linwood Bespoke painted kitchen in Farrow & Ball Railings – the open cabinet that we’re placing a plate rack in is selecting Natural Lancaster Oak but we’d rather it blend in with the rest of the kitchen – what colour would you recommend choosing that’s closest? Or would you recommend a neutral colour instead to blend in with the walls?

    January 3, 2018 at 2:18 pm
    • Diy Kitchens says:

      Hi, you can select one of our 17 different carcass colours, of course this is completely down to your own personal preference though. If you are wanting a dark carcass to go with the dark grey railings colour then graphite would be a good choice. You are also able to order the carcass samples from our website if needed, so you are able to see the colour of the graphite carcass.

    I am ordering Luca gloss dove grey doors, but want natural Lancaster oak carcass. I was wondering if carcass will show through the gaps then unit doors will be closed?

    October 4, 2017 at 2:42 pm
    • Diy Kitchens says:

      Hi, I can confirm that the edge of the carcass will be slightly visible due to the 2mm gap all the way around.

  • Ryan says:

    I guess a lot of installs will have a carcass or edge next to a wall that needs a bit of trim or sealant just to finish off and give a decent finish. (We are also using some MFC panels for other “non kitchen” bits.)
    Do you have any suggestions for the closest colour match sealant for the various colours? I am most interested in “Mussel” colour sealant.
    If you sold such stuff we’d have bought some with the kitchen.

    March 5, 2017 at 5:27 pm
    • Diy Kitchens says:

      Hi, we don’t sell the sealants but if you take an off-cut to B&Q for example then they will have some to choose from.

    Is it possible to have the carcase of a top box wall cabinet (360mm high) in the same material as the doors, so no end panels are needed?

    January 13, 2017 at 5:12 pm
    • Diy Kitchens says:

      Hi, it is not possible to have the carcasses in the same material as our doors I’m afraid. Carcasses are made from MFC. The doors are either Oak or MDF. The 18 carcasses that we have available are shown above.

  • Jodi says:

    Thanks. Is it possible to buy an unpainted door sample so that I can truly try to colour match my door colour with the cabinet samples. As you know, if I just paint swatches on top of another colour (namely my existing kitchen doors) the true colour as appears when painted on wood doesn’t really come through.

    • Diy Kitchens says:

      Hi, when doors are painted, they are given an undercoat first before the actual paint colour is applied. If you order an Alabaster sample of the door then this colour would be ideal for applying your colour onto to get a feel for how the end result would look. If you paint the samples though you would not be able to return them for a refund.

    I intend to purchase a Helmsley bespoke painted kitchen in Farrow & Ball colours Shaded White No. 201, Hardwick White No. 5 and Pigeon No. 25. The website is automatically selecting the Natural Lancaster Oak cabinet but I would prefer a painted cabinet as close as possible to match my bespoke painted door colours. Given that colours are so difficult to match, is someone able to recommend the closest matching cabinet colours or would I need to order samples of potentially several different colours?

    July 12, 2016 at 6:12 am
    • Diy Kitchens says:

      Hi, the closest matches would be those mentioned below. Before you buy though, order unit samples to be 100% sure that you are happy with them and they match your paint colour swatches.

      No.5 (Aluminium)
      No. 25 (Dakar)
      No.201 (Mussel)
