The CottageCountry Kitchen, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Café-style shuttersShutters that just cover part of the window provide all the window treatment this kitchen needs. They maximise daylight in, but the slats can be closed at night so the room’s not a beacon for those outside. With the window adjacent to the sink, they’re space-efficient and won’t get in the way. Café-style shutters don’t need to cover precisely half the window. Instead, align them with a section of glazing.
This home has tons of homely character, while being super-easy to live with. A classic Aga enhances the rustic feel. “It creates warmth and is aesthetically pleasing, plus the owners enjoy cooking. It was essential to the heart of the home,” says White.Additional units painted in Pigeon, Farrow & Ball
Keep it cleanThis pale green kitchen marries traditional style and a clean, clutter-free finish. If you’re after pared-back Shaker style, steer towards flat drawer fronts (instead of recessed designs). They lend a touch of contemporary minimalism without losing the look.
