Classic shaker-style open plan kitchen in Horsham, West Sussex
This classic shaker-style open plan kitchen was custom-made for a family residence in the West Sussex countryside. Our clients wanted their kitchen to be a flexible, practical and sociable place that would cater for the changing needs of their busy household and young family. Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery undertook the entire kitchen project from the initial design to installation, including the integrated appliances.
Made to measure cabinets in solid wood for long lasting appeal
Shaker-style cabinets were high up on our clients’ wish list, as they love the classic, authentic design and traditional construction. Handcrafted cabinets like these are exceptionally hardwearing and built to last for generations.
Cabinetry painted in a neutral grey
Our clients chose a fabulous grey shade for the cabinetry. This paint colour is Farrow & Ball French Gray, which is perfect for a modern English country style. Depending on the light it can appear as a muted green or soft, graceful grey. Having a bespoke painted kitchen gives you complete freedom over the exact colour and finish of your cabinets.
Solid oak worktops with rural character
The solid oak butchers block worktops were crafted by our carpenters in our local workshop. Oak has a natural beauty and gives a gorgeous rustic charm to this kitchen. The golden hue contrasts well with the grey finish of the cabinet doors. Solid oak worktops like these get better with age too. While other materials can begin to look tired and worn over time, an oak worktop will gain in character and patina as the colour deepens.
Traditional open custom made shelving
Our clients chose not to have upper cabinets, which they felt would take up too much space and make the kitchen feel closed in. They also wanted most of the kitchen storage to be at a low, safely accessible level for the children. Open shelving instead of overhead cabinets can make a kitchen feel larger and more welcoming. Having kitchen accessories, books and plants on display adds colour and personality to the space.
Freestanding bespoke multipurpose kitchen island
In an open-plan kitchen like this, the island will be a key focal point for preparing food and spending time together with the children and friends. A bespoke kitchen island gives you extra workspace and storage, and it can house appliances too.
