A white Shaker kitchen in a Listed country cottage

We were commissioned to design a modern shaker family kitchen in a Grade II Listed Georgian cottage in Buckinghamshire. Our clients wanted a light, bright space that would be in keeping with the architecture of the property and to retain an existing AGA in the original exposed brick fireplace that also heated the home.

The kitchen cabinetry was hand-painted in brilliant white throughout and complemented by Pure White Caesarstone worksurfaces. LED lighting was fitted inside the decorative glass-fronted overhead cabinets and above the plinths to provide additional illumination. The kitchen island was designed to provide additional storage including pan and utensil drawers and to be the social centre of the kitchen.

We handmade the bespoke freestanding dining table in walnut which fits in the window nook and we added walnut shelving. An original log store was thoughtfully converted into a modern pantry larder.

To solve the issue of cooking when the AGA was switched off during the summer, we installed an induction hob and a bank of ovens by Siemens and square metal handles were used to balance with the stainless steel appliances. A white Perrin and Rowe Belfast sink was installed with taps by Perrin and Rowe and Quooker.
