Shaker Baker

Simple is beautiful. Scandinavians call it Lagom – the Japanese have Shibui, meaning an appreciation of the beauty of silence and subtlety. For the Shakers of New England, minimalism was a virtue. To craft something useful was considered a form or prayer. This Shaker kitchen achieves beauty through inspired utility. Our customers opted for Light Grey cabinets along with laminate oak effect worktops.

What a great design chosen!

Brief

Our clients live local to our showroom and had watched us over the months transform an old engineering works into a stunning showroom. They said they just had to come and see it and once they had, they were in no doubt that they would get a fantastic job done.

They had an open plan living area but wanted to define the kitchen area and have a separation of sorts but still retain the open aspect. A classic look was preferred but with a hint of a modern twist.

Project

The entire kitchen was stripped back allowing new electrics and lighting to be re-configured, followed by a full re-board and plaster so they could paint with ease afterwards. They were guided into a shaker style door in a cashmere colour and a pewter knob handle with oak effect laminate worktops and co-ordinating upstands which work really well together. The breakfast bar area not only provides an additional seating area for those snack and coffee times, but also gives the kitchen area the separation feel they were after.
Shaker Baker Kitchen Case Study
The boiler was an eye-sore for them so we cleverly disguised it as a wall unit, but still giving that essential access to it which is required. Storage was a key part of the kitchen and by encasing the USA style Fridge Freezer with Larder Units either side gives plenty of this. The Range Cooker kept the traditional feel going, but the LED lighting in the ceiling and under the units gives a sharp modern twist.

We absolutely love our new kitchen, It’s been transformed and looks fantastic. It was great for us that you managed the whole project from the design right through to overseeing all the work and installation of our kitchen. Thank you vary much. 5*
