Exceptional Sustainable Kitchen Fronts to Customise IKEA/Howdens Kitchens

Made in Sussex


Elevate your Kitchen

Our Design Difference

Welcome to a world of sublime design: Where Scandinavian and Japanese design principles meet traditional English craftsmanship. Inspired by the local landscape, our natural materials and palettes of earthy hues and soft pastels, evoke the natural beauty and tranquility of our environment.

Our Material Difference

Redefining kitchen design standards, we hand-finish and use only premium, sustainable materials, shunning the widespread practises of using MDF, plastics, chipboard, and edge banding - where MDF and chipboard cores are disguised as wood. Our exclusive use of premium native woods, CO2-negative bamboo, premium birch plywoods, eco laminates and natural Forbo linoleum reflects our dedication to transparency, quality, longevity, and functionality.
Experience unparalleled transparency in every aspect of our process—no hiding, no cover-ups—just genuine, ethically principled craftsmanship. With CF Kitchens, you're not just getting a kitchen - you're investing in a difference you can be proud of.

About Us

With over 30 years experience as a bespoke joiner/artist, Ian and Rachel (a designer and former lawyer) had the idea for Custom Fronts in 2016. Already shipping sustainable hand made, birch plywood furniture internationally, we were disappointed in the low quality and unsustainability in the kitchen world, even in the high end sector. Determined to be the change we wanted to see, we made simple premium plywood fronts to fit IKEA cabinets, and Custom Fronts was born. We have since added CO2 negative bamboo and eco colours to our range. Soon joined by others we are an intentionally small, local and boutique atelier designing and making from our workshop on the banks of the River Ouse near Lewes serving London, Sussex and surrounds.
