Introducing Our New Dark Grey Shaker Style Kitchen

The Shaker style kitchen is a timeless classic with a look that transcends both traditional charm and contemporary cool. Part of the Kavanagh collection with a dark grey finish, this stunning kitchen is expertly crafted to fit the exact dimensions of the space.

Because of its bespoke nature, the design works effortlessly in kitchens with unusual configurations such as ones with fireplaces, awkward alcoves or high ceilings. The example you’ll see in our Edinburgh showroom demonstrates what can be achieved giving you a feel for the exquisite quality and fine finish.

Island centrepiece

This large kitchen makes the most of its footprint by incorporating a beautiful, oversized island designed to bring people together. A second sink, cleverly set into the island gives the rest of the kitchen extra space for preparation and cooking and the polished Silestone, shark tooth worktop is an eye-catching contrast to the luxurious, dark grey – a paint colour exclusive to us called Nightshade.

Colour and detail

A dark paint colour adds depth to the space. With Nightshade as a base tone, you can complement or contrast with hardware and integrated lighting to give your room a unique look. Punctuate with punches of colour in floral displays, pieces of art or a statement armchair or even a sofa if you have the room. We paired this contemporary colour with a pale Silestone Lyra worksurface for striking effect and contrasted with warm oak, burnished brass handles and gold accents.

Open shelving

The use of open shelving on the walls and inside the island gives numerous storage options as well as a place to display prized pieces. This shelving theme is a tribute to Shaker design and gives the room an industrious feel. Strategically placed lighting inside the shelves provides the room with a warm, inviting glow after dark. Open shelving offers plenty of opportunity for you to really stamp your personality on your kitchen and can look wonderful when artfully stacked with cookery books, decorative pottery or copperware. Our designers can offer you plenty of tips and inspiration about how to style open shelves.

Pantry storage

A pantry is a quaint addition that is ideal for the modern kitchen. Designed to sit next to the integral fridge, a bespoke pantry features shelves, racks and storage for dried goods, condiments, spices and crockery. It can be designed to suit your individual requirements whether you’re a keen cook or an occasional chef! Seamlessly hidden behind dark grey doors, deep drawers provide storage for the kitchen items you don’t want on display but need to use every day. Finer design details can be included, such as your family coat of arms, your initials or children’s names to further personalise your furniture.
