Classic In-Frame Plain Front Frame Shaker 101 – Chalfont St Giles

First of all, you are met with striking Crittal doors that open up to the brand-new kitchen. These modern doors connect the rooms and bring an industrial touch to the home.

The kitchen wasn’t just a standalone project, it was a home renovation project where work was undertaken throughout the entire property. Working with Beth Clancy, an interior designer – we took on this amazing opportunity to translate our client’s dreams into reality within a beautiful village known as Chalfont St Giles.

Kitchen vision: to take the best appliances, a rich deep green and brass finish, and combine it with our Classic In-Frame Shaker to create a timeless kitchen design.

With ideas from us, the designer and the client themselves, this collaborative approach resulted in a rich deep green as the main colour for the cabinets and a versatile open-plan space that would suit all needs.

Neptune Constable Green comes from the inspiration of 19th-century paintings. It’s a rich, inky colour that has been created with depth and love. This inky green takes on a dynamic character that further enhances the oak internals and the polished Heartly Grey quartz worktop found around the kitchen.

The space envelops, where a dramatic yet inviting atmosphere is found. Rather than feeling too overwhelming, the darkness from the green is harmonised by elements such as the brass handles, gold touches and rattan furniture.

Centering the kitchen around a larger-than-life island, this central showpiece has been expertly crafted to provide a social spot for family gatherings and entertainment. Due to the layout and room’s dimensions, the longest side of the island runs parallel to the longest line of cabinets. There’s ample storage and workspace too.

The focal point has to go to the Wolf 1216mm Sealed Burner Range Top with 6 Burners and Griddle and glass mirrored splashback. Many professional chefs choose gas cooking, simply because of the control. Wolf takes that control up a notch with this particular model, which includes six innovative burners, each dual-stacked with both upper and lower-tier flames.

With the kitchen being the hub of the home, the entertaining central, perfect pancakes and sizzling fajitas can be cooked on this professional-quality appliance for all the family. Our client does like a culinary challenge!

Other top-line cooking features include built-in appliances from Siemens that seamlessly integrate with the cabinetry and a Liebherr fridge freezer. A Westin Prime extractor was also added to the design and sits under a bespoke mantle that has been completed with a white-washed oak shelf. Something a little different and something we absolutely love!

These premium appliances not only meet the expectations of enthusiastic chefs but also flawlessly enhance the industrial-inspired design of the space. Their polished stainless steel finish introduces a modern element, elevating the kitchen’s aesthetic appeal and functionality.

Adding to the shaker kitchen’s heritage, a Shaws sink completes the sink area. This iconic handcrafted fireclay sink is strategically placed beneath one of the beautiful windows. It not only enhances the kitchen’s charm but also provides practicality, complemented by a Quooker Classic Fusion in patinated brass and a Yardley bespoke rinse in patina brass. Something else that adds a beautiful touch to the sink area is the Heartly Grey upstand and windowsill.

Having instant boiling water from the Quooker tap, our client emphasised that it has reduced the time when making the most ambitious meals.

Beyond the endless storage solutions, is a bespoke bi-fold breakfast station, complete with white-washed oak shelves and a beautiful feature that can be bought into family life in the mornings.

Amongst the cleverly incorporated storage solutions are spacious cabinets, bespoke drawers with cutlery inserts and an additional pantry cupboard with bi-fold doors. In the cooking area, daily routines are streamlined with deep drawers and custom chopping boards, ensuring efficient storage optimisation without compromising style.

Our bespoke cabinetry is seen in all corners of the room and there was enough space to include a cute little bar area that was finished with reeded glass glazed doors. It elegantly shows the beautiful glassware collection and adds just the right touch of playful personality.

Enhance the centrepiece of your home beyond expectations, redefining the concept and functionality of utility spaces. This isn’t just a utility though, it opens up to more possibilities. An English charm that is made with simplicity and balance.

True craftsmanship is also found in the utility/boot room, where the heart of the home has been elevated into something truly special. In an adjacent room but different colour, our Classic In-Frame shaker cabinets provide an additional room that beautifully coexists with the kitchen. Hand-painted in Sardine by Farrow & Ball, this silvery, muted blue is a modern hue to add to the colour palette found within the home.

Found in the room are pewter handles, a Franke sink, a Perrin & Rowe Mimas tap with a C spout in pewter and the Heartly Grey polished worktops.

Our functional storage is discreetly hidden behind the elegant Classic Shaker-style doors. Bulky appliances are conveniently placed at eye level, with specially designed drawers below to accommodate the laundry basket while using the dryer or washing machine. There’s also a storage bench and seating with hooks to hang coats.

This project exemplifies the profound impact of how our bespoke handmade kitchens create cherished moments with family and friends. It’s more than just a cooking space; it seamlessly integrates into the essence of family life and the home!
