Handmade L-Shaped Kitchens

L-shaped kitchens work well in small, medium and large spaces and in both contemporary and traditional styles. It’s a very popular layout in today’s designing of kitchens and if you are a budding chef then it’s perfect for you!

How it develops into the “L” shape is pretty straight forward, the layout is made up of two adjoining walls that meet in one corner connected with the worktops, cabinets and appliances. This style of kitchen maximises the space available with extra worktops, floor footing and storage. A true L-shaped will feature two walls that form a perpendicular angle.

Perfect for smaller kitchens or open-plan spaces where you want to add an island. It can easily be adapted to create a multifunctional room, like a family kitchen diner and great to incorporate the ‘kitchen triangle’ in, where there is a comfortable distance between the oven, sink and fridge. In a large room, one of the work surfaces can run along a wall and the other to protrude into the living space, creating a wonderful divider between the kitchen and dining/living area.

L-Shaped Kitchen Projects

Classic Shaker – Clayhall, London

This L-shaped kitchen we designed and installed in Clayhall is complete with a large central island and built-in dining table. Two metres has been given between the fridge/freezer, range cooker and sink creating the perfect ‘kitchen triangle’. The L-shaped row of cabinets and worktops work round the far corner of the room joined by two adjoining walls, with an ILVE range cooker included and the perfect sink area. The cabinets are hand-painted in Little Greene Royal Navy Blue.

Classic Shaker – Upminster, Essex

A Scandinavian style kitchen sits here in Upminster with a wonderful L-shaped layout set in the far corner of the space. The layout is made up from the beautiful quartz worktops and the classic shaker cabinets hand-painted in Farrow & Ball – Elephant’s Breath. The central island sits in the middle creating a divider in the large open-plan space and is hand-painted in Down Pipe by Farrow & Ball. This kitchen also includes two beautiful pantries and a lovingly crafted AGA.

Classic Shaker – Potters Bar

We designed this great L-shaped layout with Ginger and Mylo Interior Design. We had a large blank canvas to work with where the beaded front frame was chosen and the cabinets were hand-painted in the ever so popular Stiffkey Blue from Farrow & Ball. A very large island and our very own pedestal table are added to the centre of the space creating a divider and the other point of the ‘kitchen triangle’. Our client also opted for two different types of worktop to work wonders in this humongous kitchen.

Classic Shaker – Golders Green, Barnet

In this newly renovated space, we designed and installed the Classic Shaker style with an L-shaped layout and an island sitting proudly in the middle. Our aim was to provide a kitchen space with high attention to detail and finish to create a luxury kitchen that flows into the living space. The kitchen is at the same level as the main house with a large extension dropping down, where you will find a banquette seating arrangement with matching tongue and groove style panelling.

Aged brass hardware was chosen from Perrin & Rowe and the kitchen is hand-painted in Railings by Farrow & Ball.

Classic Shaker – High Wych, Herts

This perfect space has been completed with an L-shaped layout with the popular classic shaker style look with a combination of blue and white furniture. This is another take on a Scandinavian style where the light colours complement the wooden features. An island sits in the middle hand-painted in Hague Blue with the outer L-shaped section in Blackened – both colours by Farrow & Ball.

Perrin & Rowe taps were added for a luxury finish and a popular Carrara style quartz in a 30mm thickness to add a hard-wearing top to the hub of the home.

Traditional Shaker – Ongar

A different take on a kitchen style as the customer wanted just base cabinets. The in-frame traditional shaker style cabinets flow round creating an L-shaped layout with one of the lengths protruding out into the open-plan space. Railings by Farrow & Ball has been hand-painted onto the units to create a dramatic statement and exuding luxury. An island sits in the middle between two wall posts to finish the design.

Polished chrome taps were selected from Perrin & Rowe and 30mm white quartz worktops complete the look.

Modern Shaker – Bishop’s Stortford

Solid oak worktops create this luxury L-shaped kitchen in the heart of Bishop’s Stortford. The modern style cabinets are finished with a flat front frame meaning there is no beading detail, giving a contemporary look to this kitchen. The main kitchen area has been hand-painted in Farrow & Ball Black Blue, with the floor-to-ceiling cabinets on the other side in Shaded White also from Farrow & Ball.

Our client opted for a table in the middle for the perfect breakfast area.

Modern Shaker – Peterborough

In this fabulous large open-plan space sits our Modern Shaker style, completely bespoke and hand-painted. Honed African Granite Worktops make up the L-shaped kitchen layout with the island in the middle finished with a solid wooden top. A mix of white and blue decorates this space with wooden elements for a sense of calmness.
