Shaker Kitchen – St Johns Wood

Shaker Kitchen – St Johns Wood

We are in London at a lovely client’s home. We are touring a classic example of our lay-on shaker kitchen. This kitchen features shaker doors but without a front frame which is a slightly more modern design aesthetic than an in-frame shaker kitchen. The existing levels in this kitchen were a challenge and a lot of the units had to be customised to fit certain areas with dropped ceilings and reduced depths but luckily – this is what we do best.

Welcome to our latest bespoke kitchen project

Welcome to our latest kitchen project in St. John’s wood where we have a lovely Shaker kitchen to show you. It’s been spray painted in Little Green Paint Company – Shallows which is a lovely off-white shade and slightly softer than a pure white. Our clients have paired this cabinetwork with beautiful Buster & Punch Chrome linear handles.
The first base unit is this caple under-mounted drinks fridge. This particular model allows us to put a matching frame around the door, which finishes it beautifully. It’s got plenty of storage internally and it’s a two-zone temperature-controlled wine cabinet, with lots and lots of storage for your wines and other drinks.

Moving along this run of units we have a Siemens dishwasher which is fully integrated with wall units for additional storage above. There’s quite a nice detail here which is just a little open shelving area to put some of the clients possessions. We’ve also got a really lovely deep Blanco sink here in a silgranit material and is 70cm wide. This is big enough for all of your oven pans etc.

On the sink is a spray head tap and separately but alongside this is a Zip tap which dispenses boiling, chilled and sparkling water, We chose Chrome for these two taps. The next unit in this run is our classic integrated bin unit which has a handy metal shelf above which is the perfect place to store your bin bags. Above this we have more storage for glasses etc.

Moving along this wall, we have a full size Siemens oven and a combination oven and microwave above. We’ve designed a lovely deep storage drawer below this which has plenty of space and which most of our clients love. We then have a divided section above the oven for baking trays, chopping boards and anything else the client wishes to store.

The next unit along is this beautiful double door American style Fridge Freezer which is by Fisher and Paykel. It’s very useful for hosting as you can place wide trays of food with ease. Below is the deep freezer drawer with another handy internal drawer. This appliance is 90cm wide and is fully integrated with our own furniture doors on the face. It also has an ice maker internally which is fabulous for entertaining. It’s plumbed in so the ice making is automatic.
Sitting alongside this we have designed the client’s double door pantry. This has got a stone shelf matching the rest of the worktops internally. This client preferred two deep drawers for deeper storage. Further along this wall we have overflow storage and in fact one of these units have pull-out shelves at low level for ease of access.
Walking around to the other side of the kitchen you’ll find the main cooking area. We’ve got more storage above and below. Then we’ve got this beautiful Siemens gas on black glass hob with four burners, plus a large wok burner.
We’ve opted for a Western integrated extractor here, the cache slim and below the hob we’ve got cutlery drawers, and then you open it to have storage below that and another deep pan drawer.
Finally the lower section, which is the informal eating area. It’s dropped down to 75cm high which is the ergonomic height for dining. Internally here we have designed a small carousel in this area to make access into the corner that little bit easier. The worktops are a 2cm quartz worktop called Misty Carrara. It’s a slightly off-white with just a grey fleck in the stone.

What a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We certainly weren’t the easiest customers , we weren’t sure what we wanted or when ! However Donna, Richard, Rich and their amazing team guided us through the process with utter professionalism as well as warmth and patience. The results exceeded our expectations, particularly the attention to every detail. They wouldn’t rest until they knew we were happy with everything. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them or use them again.

Thanks to all the team at The Woodworks for working with me on yet another great project.

Alan Burton

Woodworks provided us with excellent service, from planning and design to finished kitchen

Build quality is excellent and it really does give the house the WOW factor

Our kitchen was part of a new build process for house we have built from scratch. Deadlines constantly moved, and Woodworks worked around everybody to get the job done on time and in full

After sales is very good, with tweaks to doors and cupboards all part of the service!

It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with The Wood Works. Our existing kitchen was 20 years old, and the layout of the room did not make use of the available space. Josh produced inspired ideas for re-designing the whole area, and really listened to what we wanted to achieve, patiently fine-tuning the plans to our particular requirements. We are now the proud owners of a stunning and practical new kitchen which has completely exceeded our expectations. When my sister visited for the first time, she said "it looks like the kitchen of a celebrity chef!" (which I am not). What a transformation. The Wood Works is a family-run business, and that really shows in terms of their professional service, quality of fittings, attention to detail, reliability and easy communication. Nothing was too much trouble. At the start of the project, Josh promised we would have our kitchen by Christmas. I was sceptical as we were in the midst of the pandemic, but they delivered as promised, with no hitches. Thoroughly recommend.


Brilliant Service!

We are delighted with the kitchen supplied and fitted by The Woodworks. The design, look and quality is brilliant. The designer (Tom Dodd), the project manager (Andy Neville) and the fitters were all brilliant. Always helpful and responsive. A really pleasing experience with Woodworks and a brilliant finished kitchen.

The design collated by Tom was brilliant and tailored brilliantly to our exact requirements.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
