A Shaker-style kitchen fits right in with a Victorian house, enhanced by tongue-and-groove panelling around the island. The bespoke units are painted in Farrow & Balls Parma Gray and the island is painted in in Blue Blood by the Paint & Paper Library. The black granite worktop brings modern feel to this country kitchen.
On the other side of the island unit is a pine table with matching chairs, which adds to the country feel of the kitchen. Alcove shelving wraps around the dining area, creating a display space for ceramics and storage for cook books.
Going bespoke means no alcove space is wasted. More open shelving keeps small appliances close to hand.
The island unit is the focal point of this kitchen. It's painted in Blue Blood by Paint & Paper Library, which provides a beautiful contrast to the black granite worktop.
Plain white units and yellow walls have given way to a painted kitchen that's much more in keeping with the proportions of this Victorian home.
