Willow Cottage Kitchen
This kitchen uses deeply textured quartz, complemented by beautiful Black Walnut woodgrain, curved shaker cabinetry and calm grey accents to create an inviting and efficient room.
Elegance meets functionality as the choice of the dark charcoal cabinetry sits beautifully against the old Cotswold stone walls, matching the dark steel framed glazing.
Kitchens offer many colour pairing opportunities, and the shaker is no different. We provide a whole range of paint finishes and fittings to give your kitchen that personal touch.
Expert craftsmanship and simplicity are the hallmarks of the shaker style.
A shaker kitchen can be easily recognised by the simple, functional look of its cabinets. The doors have wide boarders and rails that sit proud of a flat panel in the centre. This plain and unobtrusive approach to kitchen storage gives homeowners excellent versatility, and you can dress your shaker kitchen in a contemporary feel or strip it back to its natural beauty and simplicity for a more traditional kitchen.
Shaker Kitchen Colours:
Shaker kitchens typically use whites and subtle, muted pastel colours. Today, we’re also seamlessly integrating bolder colour choices such as deep blues, greens and greys, giving a distinctly modern edge to the classic shaker.
