In this project the kitchen and living areas have been hand built in a classic Shaker style which is sure to stand the test of time but with some lovely contemporary touches. The mirror splashback, in the kitchen, allows the natural light to bounce around the kitchen and the copper accents are bright and stylish and keep the whole look current. The pendants are from tom Dixon @tom_dixon11.
The cabinets are hand painted in F&B’s downpipe which is a favourite, and for good reason. It contrasts beautifully with their chalky Wimbourne White and, in an open plan living situation like this, it sets the kitchen area apart from living area.
At Planet we love combining two finishes. Here, the Corian worktop in Vanilla sits beautifully with the Solid Oak Breakfast Bar which in itself is great with a wooden floor.
The colours and finishes continue into the Living Room which unifies the whole look. The cupboards and shelving are painted in Wimbourne White with accents of the Downpipe on the back panels of the shelving. A drinks cabinet has become a popular addition to our projects, and no wonder! It’s a stylish and fun addition to the room. With doors closed it blends perfectly with the run of storage cupboards and open – no detail has been overlooked. It has integrated lighting and the worktop is the same Vanilla Corian as the kitchen. To complete the drinks cupboard a scalloped oak wine rack below has been hand built by our skilled craftsmen.

Introducing our latest project from our Next125 range. The renovation in Hitchin features the renowned German range which is a perfect choice for a contemporary look that is stylish and sleek and built to the highest standards.
We love how the run of tall cabinets in a Walnut Veneer the Indigo Blue Lacquer and mirrors the wide planked Solid Walnut breakfast bar. The Walnut reflects other pieces of furniture in the wider living space and brings the whole look together.
The integrated Neff appliances gives a smart, uncluttered finish and the Caesarstone Raw Concrete worktops are tactile and functional and provide a lovely contrast to the Walnut. Once again we are pleased to be able to include a Quooker Flex tap in Stainless Steel.
This is a fantastic living space for the whole family and we were delighted to work with them to achieve a look that works across both the kitchen and living areas.

This striking kitchen is one of our latest Handmade in Hitchin projects. The In Frame Shaker style is classic Planet Furniture. Hand painted in Little Greene’s Dock Blue, the rich colour of the cabinets anchors the kitchen perfectly in the large, open space where the cooking and living areas work so well together.

This is cool, country kitchen at its best. The twee frills of yesteryear have been left behind and this classic Shaker has taken on a pared back, cool-as-you-like style. Bespoke cabinetry in a Cockbead, Inframe design keeps it classic and totally suitable to this beautiful barn conversion near Royston, which we’re proud to introduce as our latest project.

The smart, handless style is the perfect choice for a busy family that like to entertain, as all the essentials are kept hidden behind the push-to-open doors and drawers. More info and pictures in the Gallery https://www.planetfurniture.co.uk/gallery/album.php?s=modern-handleless-in-walkern

It will be down to personal taste and/or the style of your house whether you opt for a sleek, contemporary style or a traditional, classic design. However the architectural style of your home needn’t dictate the design of your kitchen. We know that a contemporary kitchen can complement the original features of a Victorian home – good proportions, large windows, original tiles and floorboards can offer a great contrast to a smart, handleless finish. Equally a new build home or conversion can benefit from the classic, established look of the more traditional style of kitchen with a muted colour palette. Either way the key to its success will be the way your kitchen designer is sympathetic to the setting of your home.
Here at Planet we often mix up the styles by incorporating high-tech appliances and up-to-the-minute worktops and splashbacks to the well-loved Shaker style.
The design, space and colour scheme of this kitchen have all been thoughtfully considered to accommodate a large, traditional solid oak dining table – a feature which has dictated the classic Shaker style. Limestone flooring, framed cabinets and a muted colour palette all reflect a bygone era but are complemented by the contemporary appliances and finishes. The Antiqued Mirror splashback with gold backing helps to elevate this classic Shaker out-of-the-ordinary and the Lacanche Macon Range Cooker in Mandarin adds warmth and personality. The large Liebherr fridge freezer in Stainless Steel show how old and new can work effectively together.
This contemporary, super-smart kitchen was designed to fit a new extension and with the open space of the garden in mind. The understated, bespoke kitchen design means the focus is on the outdoors when the bi-folds are open or through the expanse of glass in the colder months. Keeping it contemporary, the handless cabinets have been hand painted in F&B’s All White and Little Greene’s Dock Blue. Again, adding a mix of old to the new, the wide planked Oak breakfast bar provides a warm, tactile contrast whilst the integrated Miele appliances inset unobtrusively on the Quartz worktop ensure the sleek, uncluttered finish is maintained.
A real feature of this family kitchen is the bespoke extra-large pantry which was commissioned as a drinks cabinet with integrated wine cooler. Serving both functional and visual purposes it’s designed in the same handless style as the kitchen cabinets with bi-fold doors and painted in the same F&B Old White. Very modern and very suited to its setting
