Simple, understated, elegant. And incredibly versatile.

A true Shaker kitchen, with handcrafted cabinetry and meticulous attention to detail, has timeless appeal.

There’s a reason that the Shaker style has stood the test of time – its elegantly unfussy style makes it the perfect base for any kitchen design.

Classic design always adapts to contemporary trends and we’re now seeing the Shaker style in new, exciting forms. Striking blues, greys, greens and even black, create a bold statement - often with interiors painted in contrasting hues.

But the real beauty of the shaker is it's versatility. Work surfaces, taps, handles and other accessories can dramatically shift the look and feel, from timeless classic to a contemporary statement.

How can you personalise and customise this ubiquitous, much-loved design into an individual and personal bespoke statement for your own kitchen?
