Modern Shaker Kitchen

Having lived in their previous home for 14 years Roisin and Sean's dream of building their own home was a long time coming! Roisin was thrilled to finally be able to put her design ideas into motion. With an eye for design and a love for all things interiors Roisin had spent years leafing through magazines and scouring websites for inspiration for her own kitchen. Roisin went to Jordan, one of our designers with a very specific set of ideas and were impressed at some fo the great suggestions Jordan had himself. It was the perfect combination- Roisin's eye for great design paired with Jordan's experience ensured the design worked logically while also featuring other bespoke details giving it its premium luxurious finish.

Wanting a pared back Shaker style in a classic colour combination of grey and while the couple were drawn to an unadorned door design, which was gradually enhanced as the design evolved. "Jordan suggested running the moulding along the top of the cabinets, which gives a seamless finish between the furniture and the ceiling. We were originally going to leave a gap but we're so glad we went with this suggestion. Everyone comments on it; now I can't imagine the kitchen without it"

Ensuring a cohesive look throughout the house, Jordan also suggested the use of walnut on the breakfast bar and inside the cabinetry to complement the internal doors throughout the house. The rooms gets a lot of light, and mixed with the other work surfaces it gives a really good balance. Jordan also advised on the granite and quartz, as well as the appliances. 'Our design really did thing of everything, right down to the concealed iPhone charging points in the island -  no more messy cables lying around the worktop!'
