Contemporary Shaker Kitchen

This is an updated version of the traditional shaker look, with a utilitarian version of the Shaker doors. Slimmer lines and sleeker hardware make this a versatile style that suits both traditional and modern settings.

 

I really enjoy making kitchens. Because I work directly with my clients and plan each job from scratch, I can offer a truly bespoke service. I offer a free consultation and provide rendered drawings that help clients to visualise the plan in three dimensions.

For most jobs, I use birch ply to construct the cabinets and drawers. In additional to being sustainable, it is such an attractive, durable and cost-effective material. I always use heavy-duty hardware from a top-quality Austrian firm for the hinges and soft-closing drawer mechanisms. The end result is a strong and aesthetically-pleasing cabinet or drawer that will stand up to many years of heavy use.

Worktops are an important part of any kitchen. I enjoy making durable solid wood countertops out of lovely wide planks of oak or maple. These really show the beauty and depth of the natural grain. Laminates are also a great way to introduce colour. I can help to source stone or composite worktops that are guaranteed to fit perfectly atop the kitchen cabinets.
