Contemporary, Traditional & Shaker Kitchens Explained – Which One Is Right For Your Home?

Kitchen Styles Explained

We believe your kitchen is the most important room in your home.

And of course we’ll say that… we’re kitchen designers after all.

But there’s a reason we’re so passionate about our kitchen designs.

We’ve all heard the phrase “The kitchen is the heart of your home”.

  • It’s where you Cook
  • It’s where you Live
  • It’s where you Entertain
  • And it’s where you all gather at the end of the day

So what better way of representing the quality of your home, than a kitchen you can take pride in.

It’s all about how the kitchen makes you feel and how you will enjoy using it.

Maybe you love to spend your time cooking.

Or maybe you spend your evenings entertaining guests…

Whatever your use of time – we need to ensure you choose the most suitable kitchen for your lifestyle.

Now when you’re looking for a new kitchen it’s best to keep in mind that there are 3 main styles of kitchen.

Understanding which style of kitchen is most suitable to your lifestyle is a massive aid to your kitchen designer and ultimately you getting the “dream kitchen”.
