In-Frame Oak & Painted Shaker Kitchen in Parma GreyContemporary Kitchen, Hampshire
The shaker style has proven to very popular this year, with nearly every handmade kitchen we have featured on our site, created in the shaker style! It’s not surprising though, when they look this good. For this particular project we have used a combination of natural oak with a light lacquer on the two furniture runs. These feature our high quality 30mm frame and door construction with a birch veneer interior, materials that will enable this kitchen to last many, many years. The handles are one that we actually have on a display in our showroom. A verdigris handle with an interesting pattern.
On this project we have a couple of bespoke furniture features, the first of which is the custom oak shutter system for the counter top unit. The special unit uses a roller shutter that has lots of narrow oak slats that move seamlessly up and out of the way to reveal the toaster and two shelves. The second is the pull out shelves in two of the 900 base units. These use modern soft close runners that enable you to pull out the shelves and easily access everything stored on them. This removes the need of having to get very low to try and find that bowl right at the back that you don’t always use, a great feature we believe.
The final great feature of this kitchen is the walk in larder, this uses a bespoke birch veneered plywood construction, and the lovely thing about this material is the beautiful layering you get on the edges of the ply. The outer doors of the larder were also made by us, they are solid oak and feature a tear drop opening on the front. Inside one of the doors we have created a bespoke spice rack.
Inside of the larder you can see the plywood layered edges as well as the extra deep drawers. These have a sweeping profile with a hand-scoop at the front. All of these run on modern soft-close runners. Above the drawers you have three staggered shelves, all of which are deep and provide a huge amount of storage space.
