Kitchen Ideas & Inspiration

A shaker kitchen for a social family

Mrs and Mr Ackerman were looking for a practical shaker kitchen to accommodate their social lifestyle.

They visited our Cardiff showroom following a recommendation from a friend and the rest is history.

What was the brief?

Sally knew that she wanted a traditional shaker kitchen. After Sigma 3 Design Consultant Tabitha showed the couple the different shaker kitchen styles available, the couple decided that the beautiful woodgrain finish of our Hardwick range would be the perfect fit for their home. When deciding on the colour scheme of the kitchen, they opted for neutral Scots Grey with contrasting Graphite for the kitchen island.

The design process

Kitchen designer Tabitha listened carefully to Mr and Mrs Ackerman’s needs and wants. The couple had never had a kitchen island before, so the kitchen required reshaping. They expressed that they didn’t want a table and chairs taking up too much space in the kitchen, so Tabitha designed a bunkette seating area to go in the corner of the kitchen.

Tabitha maximised the kitchen’s storage potential by putting Linea cabinets underneath the seating area, offering lots of storage without taking up much space. The kitchen works perfectly for the couple in terms of their social lifestyle. The uninterrupted view from the kitchen island to the seating area means Sally can chat away to guests as she prepares food.

The outcome

Mr and Mrs Ackerman were delighted with their new shaker kitchen. Having spent many hours searching through Pinterest and home magazines, Sally expressed she’d finally found the kitchen of her dreams. From the initial design appointment up until the fitting of the kitchen, Sally felt that everyone was always on hand to offer advice and practical solutions. We’re delighted to have made the Ackerman’s kitchen dreams a reality.
