Light grey speckled quartz worktop with butchers block wood insert
This shaker style kitchen blends contemporary with traditional, almost rustic. The open shelving in the well sized kitchen island is classic cottage farmhouse styling. The rest of the island has contemporary styling. We think it works well.
In contrast to the mineral blue matte paint used for the kitchen island the remaining units are painted matte slate grey. Two wall units either side of the window add interest without imposing themselves, staying true to simple functional principles of shaker kitchens.
Luxury touches are introduced by the modern appliances and extractor hood above the kitchen island. Light grey speckled quartz adds further luxury. The butchers block insert running along two sides of the island adds warmth while also providing a defined eating area. The shiny chrome door handles add a further contemporary look to this shaker.
Using two paint colours and two worktop materials gives this kitchen a luxury feel, yet you will probably be surprised to find that it can be achieved on a modest budget.
