Watford Kitchen



A Shaker kitchen with an island and a peninsula

This bespoke kitchen was designed and made for clients that had purchased the former country home of cookery writer, Fanny Craddock who taught the nation to cook during the 1950’s to 1970’s. It was a full refurbishment project, which included recovering the curved walls in exposed reclaimed brickwork to bring the look of the room up to date.

This in-frame hand-painted Shaker kitchen combines integrated and freestanding furniture in Farrow and Ball heritage colours with a mix of wooden and finger pull handles. Together with a kitchen island with shelving for cookery books, the design also features a separate peninsula for food preparation and additional storage and all have solid oak oiled worksurfaces.

For this kitchen we also created two handmade freestanding pantry dressers and we also included exposed oak shelving on a wall of tongue and groove panelling to enhance the Shaker scheme.

A chequered mosaic splashback in glass, slate and stone complements the chequerboard marble flooring, which combines with the black AGA in the inglenook that has a wide firemantel above it; a feature of English Shaker kitchens.
