White Shaker Kitchen, Dorchester, September 2019

Dorchester, Dorset

The Design

Our clients wanted to modernise their existing kitchen, which was now looking dated, with a clean White Shaker design. The brief was to maximise space wherever possible and ensure that the room flowed much better for how the family uses it. With our clever use of design and placement of units, we've really tried to keep the maximum amount of symmetry in the kitchen without having to move existing features like the boiler! 

The classic, painted Shaker look was achieved with doors from our Milborne range. Character and a homely feel was added by way of glazed units and open oak shelving where the client wanted.

The Process

Our design team took the brief from the client, using tall wall units to gain as much space as possible up to the ceiling (including scribing to the ceiling to give a fully built in appearance). We incorporated clever storage solutions in the corners, hidden cutlery trays, and other pull-outs all in contrasting Onyx Grey/Anthracite, so that they really stand out from the units, especially when you open the door to reveal what's behind!

The open Halifax Oak shelving units really help finish this room off, and being the same finish as the Egger laminate worktops it pulls everything together nicely!

Thank you very much for being very patient with us, doing all the re-designs and answering all our questions. Thank you for being flexible as well in the choice of our appliances and splashback, that was very much appreciated. We love the tiles we chose and they compliment both the white of the units and the oak worktop very nicely. The open oak shelves add that extra little bit, it's a really nice touch. And the symmetry above the ink is fantastic!

It's really really lovely looking, it feels "cozy and warm" and just right for our family (although at the moment I'm keeping a close eye on the little one's hands and make sure they're clean before they come in the kitchen!). I have found the design aspect to be really good as well from a practical point of view. Everything flows really nicely, and we have so much storage now, it's incredible!

Your after-sale service is beyond excellent. Even though there were no major issues, you have been so quick at dealing with things and I feel you have gone out of your way to make sure it was all dealt with efficiently. I was really impressed, and to be honest I don't think we would have had the same quality of service if we had gone somewhere else for our kitchen.

I have been very warmly recommending you to friends around me!!
