There are so many beautiful kitchen styles out there, but for elegant simplicity you really cannot beat a Shaker-style kitchen. Chester residents looking to transform their kitchen recently chose Prestige Granite and Marble to remodel their kitchen, with truly gorgeous results. This stunning Chester kitchen renovation features not only the timeless grace of the Shaker style, but also the beauty and function of quartz worktops. Let’s take a closer look at the design theory behind this kitchen renovation, as well as the specifics of this particular project.
Shaker kitchens are the most popular style of 2023. In fact, Shaker style has been on point for about a decade, and you can expect it to be a trend that really never goes out of style. The inherent simplicity of a Shaker style kitchen, with its cabinet doors featuring a single centre, panel, raised frame, and no excess adornment, lends itself beautifully to a minimalist aesthetic. When done all in white, as is the case in this particular kitchen, it is especially versatile, because it leaves room for design elements that will make it truly unique. Acting as a blank slate, this elegantly minimalistic kitchen affords a designer the opportunity to create something custom and truly unique.
In this kitchen renovation in Chester, the kitchen worktops take centre stage. The selected worktops are White Gold Mist Itastone Quartz, a popular option for white quartz worktops in Chester, with good reason. Itastone has long been known as a leading brand of luxurious quartz, and Gold Mist is one of their most elegant options, with delicate gold and grey veins running throughout the quartz. In this kitchen, Gold Mist Quartz has been installed not only as worktops, but also upstands and window sills. The way it elevates the look of the Cashmere Shaker style kitchen units is striking, and the use of gold handles and drawer pulls ties all of the elements together for a cohesive look.
Chester is steeped in history and rich traditions, so a traditional kitchen look makes particular sense in this context, especially when it is done as well as it is here. The use of a range cooker, in stainless steel, helps keep a traditional feel. A large, three lamp pendant, on a linear bar, draws focus to the large island, finished with the elegant white quartz worktop.
The kitchen functions beautifully, in part because of the use of quartz countertops, which are as practical and functional as they are beautiful. Quartz is resistant to scratches and chips, as well as being waterproof and stain resistant. It is an excellent option for a kitchen because of its low maintenance appeal, as well as its good looks. It is easy to enjoy a kitchen with quartz cabinets because there is no worry of damaging them, even when you are entertaining a crowd. This kitchen is perfect for this kind of entertaining, with its large island bar that can accommodate friends hanging out, children doing homework, or just the family enjoying a casual weeknight dinner together. Bright and airy, the kitchen has a welcoming feel; rather than making it feel stark, the all-white palette allows for the play of natural light off of all the surfaces. This effect is achieved through the use of several different types of white, expertly layered to give the kitchen warmth and charm. The floor, with large tiles in shades of grey, perfectly complements the look of the cabinets and worktops, and this aesthetic is carried into adjoining rooms. The overall effect is simple yet exquisite, the perfect renovation.
