A grey shaker kitchen in the forever home
Following the completion of a new extension, the Monk family were searching for the perfect grey shaker kitchen to complete their forever home.
Before visiting our Esher kitchen showroom, Anne and her family had been using their old kitchen for 26 years, so needless to say, it was ripe for a change.
Anne’s neighbours were in the process of having their kitchen designed by Sigma 3, so she tagged along to their design appointment where her kitchen journey began.
What was the brief?
To set the kitchen apart from a standard grey shaker kitchen, Anne wanted to incorporate a blue kitchen island as a stand-out feature and a functional place for the family to gather.
Having seen wood worktops in a friend’s kitchen, Anne explained she loved the look and wanted to incorporate these into the kitchen’s design also.
The design process
The family had their minds changed completely when they viewed the selection of worktops on offer. They opted for white worksurfaces as they loved the contrast between Oxford Blue and white.
Kitchen designer Phil Rose explained each design feature and storage solution in detail could understand which storage solution best suited their lifestyle. They chose a pull-out larder, MagnaSpace, to ensure their cooking ingredients were organized and accessible. They also chose a classic kitchen pantry which elevated the classic look of the kitchen.
Anne adores her new kitchen because it works for them as a family. The kitchen island has allowed them to spend more time together as a family - the children are able to use their laptops at the island as Anne cooks.
One of Anne's favourite things about the new kitchen is that the clever storage features allow everything to be hidden away or displayed accordingly. The family now have a kitchen that is as functional as it is beautiful.
