We are proud to work with Puustelli Miinus kitchens: an innovative environmentally sound alternative to standard fitted kitchens. Low-VOC and with strong sustainability credentials, Miinus kitchens are better for you and better for the planet. See below for how we approach kitchen design.
Miinus Kitchens are based on a long-lasting, modifiable and recyclable construction. A Miinus kitchen only requires ½ of the material of a standard kitchen, and has a carbon footprint that is 30-45% lower. Every design element follows the 3R sustainability principles. The pioneering system was shortlisted in the Futurebuild 2020 Big Innovation Pitch (Materials category).
None of the traditional and often problematic kitchen materials are used in Miinus (chipboard, MDF, laminate, melamine). These have been replaced with innovative biocomposite, real wood veneers and FOSB, all from well-managed and certified forests. The biocomposite is fully recyclable: a first in the kitchen industry.
Only non-toxic materials and finishes are used in Miinus. This means that they will not pollute your indoor air or pose health risks to your family. The biocomposite frame and drawers contain 0% formaldehyde, while the wood-based panels and fronts are NAF (no added formaldehyde).
The product offers exceptional longevity and lengthy warranties: 30 years for bio-composite frames and mechanical parts, and 10 years for fronts and panels. The units are easy to handle, install, and modify over time. The biocomposite construction also allows us to create flood-resilient Miinus Kitchens.
Miinus is manufactured by Puustelli, Finland’s leading kitchen manufacturer with a reputation for quality and innovation. The company has a strong ecological and social ethos, and has achieved ISO quality certification covering all aspects of its activities.
Miinus follows deeply rooted Finnish design principles of simplicity and closeness to nature. Thanks to the versatility of wood, there is a wide range of colours and styles available. All of the options allow the creation of effortlessly elegant kitchen designs that will stand the test of time.

Dekton ultracompact sinterised stone surfaces by Spanish manufacturer Cosentino are our worktops of choice. Scratch resistance, stain resistance, and heat resistance are just some of the properties that we love in Dekton worktops. The finishes and colourways also perfectly complement our veneers.

All paint is the same, right? Definitely wrong! VOC-free CO2 absorbing paint from Graphenstone is an excellent choice for an eco-minded decoration project, be it a kitchen or otherwise. Using proprietary graphene technology makes these paints durable and less taxing on the environment, and the health of the occupants of the space. Graphenstone paints are also a breathable, high coverage and washable solution.
