A black range cooker in a painted Shaker kitchen [kitchen case study]

Are you planning a new kitchen? Are you unsure whether to invest in a traditional country style kitchen or opt for something more contemporary? A timeless Shaker style design could prove the perfect solution.


The island provides space for food preparation and dining

This contemporary Shaker kitchen, from Kitchen Design Centre, was designed in response to a client’s request for a traditional style with a modern twist. The kitchen, located in Stockport, benefits from a large extension, which creates a functional living space for the family.

 A central island houses built-in appliances and a seating area, doubling up as a dining and preparation space. The cabinetry; painted in chalk and stone shades, offsets the leather black granite work surfaces creating a modern design with an almost monochrome feel. Designer Suzanne said: “Although the Shaker kitchen has an unmistakably traditional feel, it fits easily into a contemporary setting.”


A mirrored splashback makes the kitchen appear larger

The client specifically asked for a range cooker, requesting a high quality product.  Suzanne felt a Britannia range cooker was the perfect choice, opting for the gloss black Sigma XG 110cm to complement the work surfaces and overall design. A mirrored splashback adds an extra touch of class and makes the large kitchen feel even bigger.




Owner Diane was very pleased with the result, saying: “Guests are gobsmacked when they see the incredible transformation. I love every aspect of my kitchen.”
