Our clients brief on this kitchen was to create an elegant and timeless shaker kitchen which stood out from the crowd.

It was determined early on that a mix of materials would be used to create distinct zones within the kitchen. The new orangery and structural elements were to be created in oak and therefore a contrasting timber was used so as not to blend but add a distinct contrast between the architecture and furniture.

To achieve this we used a combination of American Black Walnut and Burr Walnut; adding a classic sumptuous feel to the cabinetry. We teamed this with a painted finish to stop the kitchen from feeling too dark and heavy.

The zoning of the kitchen was emphasised by using different amounts of timber and painted cabinetry. The dining and display space for example was created wholly in Walnut and the worktop height was lowered to separate it from the working area of the kitchen.

The sophisticated aesthetic was continued with Antique Brown granite work surfaces that are slightly softer than black. This granite works fantastically with Walnut.

Another key feature in the design was in the hardware. Our client was not a fan of stainless steel so all butt hinges, handles, and knobs were supplied in an American copper finish.

The kitchen was designed as a statement; sitting directly inside the sitting room and dining area with the island becoming a central point for preparation as well as socialising with guests.

This shaker kitchen is completely customisable, from frame detail, rail sizes, materials and paint colour. Our range of shaker kitchens start from £35,000.00.
