Timeless & Elegant Painted Shaker Kitchen & Utility


Mr and Mrs Bowley from Worcester had plans for an extensive renovation of a derelict barn, with a vision to create a perfect family home.  They asked us to design a timeless and elegant family kitchen and utility room for their growing family of 3 young boys and 2 dogs. 

They chose a classic painted shaker door in light grey, with gorgeous white quartz work surfaces in Calacatta, all paired with patinated brass handles.

The kitchen island has a double Belfast sink with a brass Quooker tap to match the handles and a pull out bin cupboard. There is seating at the back of the kitchen island for casual breakfasts and laid back lunches, and 2 integrated wine coolers for easy access to perfectly chilled wine as and when required… 

We designed a mantle above the beautiful baby blue Aga range cooker, to house the extractor, and there is a quartz shelf behind the cooker for storage jars and displaying lovely items. The cplashback is a mirrored glass in antique bronze, to compliment the patinated brass details. 

There is a hidden larder pantry unit behind a glass door, for storage of the families cereals, pastas and  dry food items. The fridge and freezer are integrated in the tall larder cupboards, with additional storage in the larder cupboard in the centre. 

In the utility room we designed a double dog basket within a cupboard, to create a little doggy haven. There are more tall storage cupboards and e stacked the washing machine and tumble dryer for easy laundry.

Deep Green In Frame Shaker Kitchen

For the owners of this charming 18th century listed Cotswold stone barn in Warwickshire, a full renovation project also included creating a spacious open-plan kitchen diner. Having bought the property in 2020, the couple have lovingly spent time giving their home a completely new look, sympathetically designed to complement the warm, honey-coloured local Cotswold limestone that adorns the walls.

Dark Blue In Frame Shaker Kitchen

The owners of this stunning renovation relocated to Edgbaston as a family in 2015, and as their family expanded, their home evolved into a contemporary living space while preserving the Victorian charm of the house.

Charcoal In Frame Shaker Kitchen

Period properties are fantastic buildings in which to create a dream kitchen, especially when they include a rear extension that lets the light flood in. This Victorian house had a complete single-storey renovation at the back, with an extension for the new kitchen-diner-living area plus utility room complete with skylights and full-height, full-width sliding doors to seamlessly connect the inside and outside spaces.
