    Measure it up and then if you have a local branch of Wickes see what they can offer. Their kitchen unit carcass
    prices are very good.
    You may be able to fit it in one of these and then just buy a reasonable looking door.

    Another option is to DIY with MDF but that depends on how good your DIY skills are.
