I need to construct (or more accurately, get someone else to construct) a wall mounted cabinet for my kitchen. I want it to match as closely as possible the existing cabinets that it will be placed next to. It turns out that they are non-standard sizes for UK so can't just by a cabinet off-the-shelf so I thought I would buy the material myself (luckily I have a matching door already).

The existing cabinets are made from 18mm thick Melamine Faced Chipboard, finished with an Oak effect. I am having trouble finding this anywhere in my local area (Oxford)! I've tried Wickes, Homebase, B&Q, and Jewson. Wickes is the closest with 15mm thick Oak effect MFC, but not 18mm.

Does anyone have any good suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Go to a proper panel supplier that will stock or be able to obtain boards by the likes of Egger, Kronospan, Sonae, etc.

This is an idea of the range of wood grains available from Egger, though they do have more patterns they will only be available for bulk purchases

I got Oak faced MDF in the end (proper Oak, not melamine) as I just couldn't find the original material.

Did you ever find your mdf? You could try www.starbank-uk.com, they manufacture all kinds of laminates.
