Are you currently in the middle of a self-build or planning your next kitchen renovation project? If you’re looking for design inspiration, then look no further! We’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite recent Real Kitchens projects.

The Clifden range is a smooth matte painted narrow shaker door. It comes with an array of door options, colours and accessories providing endless design possibilities. Here’s how a young busy family from the beautiful village Frensham in Surrey styled theirs.

The open-plan kitchen and dining space is visually stunning and designed perfectly for family life and socialising. The clients opted for a two-tone style: Brilliant White on the main cabinetry and Graphite on the island to create a focal point in the room. By pairing this with a Cimstone Britannica Worktop and statement brass bar handles they have created a striking colour palette that is right at home in this stylish period property.

The Aldana range is a painted narrow timber shaker door. This door is accompanied by a host of accessories that will expand your design options to create a kitchen that meets all your expectations. This real kitchen project is the perfect example of how the simplicity of the Aldana door lends itself to country living!

This lovely cottage nestled in Shere, a small village in Guildford, was in need of a fresh new kitchen but visually it had to be in keeping with the rest of the cottage and the area as a whole. The clients opted for the Aldana door in Porcelain pairing it with wooden worktops and some clever storage solutions including a double-sided peninsula with a feature open bookcase giving their kitchen space a charming country feel.

Zola Matte

Zola is a smooth- matte painted slab door. It’s the perfect option if you want to achieve a sleek and ultra-modern kitchen space. This door style provides endless possibilities with various finish options including Gloss and Soft Matte and handleless.

This real kitchen was part of a renovation to a beautiful family home. The clients felt that their existing kitchen was not a true representation of their home. For their dream kitchen, they envisaged something that was both simplistic and modern in design. There is no doubt they have achieved this perfectly! By pairing the Zola Matte door in Indigo Blue with a woodgrain slab door in truffle brown, they have successfully added a touch of warmth to this contemporary kitchen.
