Free standing and un-fitted kitchens

Free Standing & Unfitted Kitchens

At the White Kitchen Company, we have recognised a growing trend in kitchen furniture that has been around in Europe for quite some time, ‘the freestanding unfitted kitchen'. Although many of our customers have chosen their kitchens units to be fitted our solid wood base units arrive in one piece (no flat pack assembly), so naturally they lend themselves to be left free standing.

The Benefits of Free Standing Kitchens Units


  • You can design them as a run of units, or have them as individual cabinets.
  • Within the kitchen, you can combine antique or retro pieces for a characterful, laid-back look. 
  • Old homes with their wonky walls can make fitting cabinets more difficult, whereas freestanding furniture works well.
  • Because these items are free-standing, you can take them with you when you move.


  • Modern appliances can be totally hidden.


  • You can buy a piece at a time to suit your requirements.

Fitted kitchens might seem like a better use of the space, but once you have one, you’re committed to it. With an un-fitted kitchen, you can change how your kitchen looks with ease, rearrange them and even take them with you if you move home. 

The island is one of the most sought-after features in any modern kitchen. Our online mail order kitchen cabinets make it possible to create bespoke islands adaptable for specific functions and It’s easy to create a social entertaining space while still maintaining a functional workstation.

TWKC's modular freestanding units are available with stepped back kickboards, this creates a freestanding look but stops crumbs and dust collecting underneath. Our units have flat sides so they can be screwed together, then worktops can be added with an up-stand to create a freestanding piece. We know cleaning can be a nightmare in an unfitted kitchen so we do our best to address these issues. The units come in three styles the 'Wood Shaker Kitchen', the 'Luxury English Period' style and our Fusion cabinets. All available direct from the Manufacturer.

Our ‘Fit Your Own' freestanding oak units are available to buy and are a selection of units which are intended to give a wide choice of options to create a beautiful and practical kitchen. However, we can also make bespoke units built to order and slight alterations can be accommodated. All our units are solid wood throughout, all joints are morticed and tenoned, drawers are dovetailed and built to last a lifetime. The Solid Oak can be left natural and lacquered or undercoated ready to paint. You can opt to fit yourselves or we can arrange to fit for you.
