I’m always trying to keep a look out for interesting news about eco-friendly interiors. Yesterday, I came across and article in The Daily Mail a British online newspaper about a kitchen designed for an eco-friendly home model for the Prince’s Trust Foundation. According to the article which you can read in it’s entirety here, Prince Charles was so impressed by the kitchen in the model home that it led to the design of a new line of affordable kitchens made by  British Standard in the same factory as the Plain English cabinetry. However, the cabinets by British Standard must be picked up and installed by the home owner.

Plain English has been making kitchen cabinetry in England since 1992 and participated in the Natural House at the Ideal Home Show in 2011. They celebrated 20 years in business going back to basics and creating kitchens the masses could afford under the British Standard by Plain English name. The kitchens are built to last a life time.

I love the look of these kitchens. Do you?
