The Chester Kitchen

deVOL Shaker cupboards in their favourite environment, a light, bright, beautifully simple family house with plenty of room for hanging out, pretty much our idea of perfection.

Sometimes a newly transformed home and kitchen just works simply and easily, or at least it looks that way when you see it all finished. I’m sure every building project is as stressful as the next when you are renovating your property, but sometimes it just looks as if it was plain sailing. That’s a good thing, it means your final vision was right and all the decisions and choices you made along the way worked out. It’s hard to get everything right on a big project, there’s so much to think about that can really effect the final look, but at the time you have to choose, you may not have seen, or realised, the importance of every little detail.

This Chester kitchen is our idea of a perfect deVOL Kitchen, the extension on the back of this house was done beautifully and the design of the kitchen and choice of cupboards, colours and styling was just right. If you start with a good structure and add to this with good quality fittings, use good builders and, finally, choose good cupboards, then you can’t go far wrong. Quality always looks good, so many people spoil a build by saving a few pounds at the end on less than perfect choices just because they ran out of steam or money. The Chester Kitchen is painted in a bespoke colour, pale and cool to go with the classic choice of Carrara marble worktops. An integrated pantry and fridge in the corner keeps everything so neat and uncluttered, one simple Shaker shelf and a selection of standard cupboards for the base run and island. This kitchen shows how uncomplicated and subtle our Shaker cupboards are, no fuss just well made and well designed.
