About This Project


This elegant kitchen was reconfigured and redesigned into a stylish and practical family kitchen.

It is an in-frame shaker kitchen by Mereway and is part of their Signature range. This is a handcrafted, hand-painted range with a smooth matte finish and is of exceptional quality. The kitchen features a two-tone colour scheme, painted in Dust Grey and Light Grey, and the worktops are Istone Carrara Quartz in 30ml with delicate grey veining.

The dining and living areas in this open-plan layout are elegantly styled in grey and neutral tones, and the kitchen complements the interiors seamlessly.

Paines & Gray Kitchen Design

The starting point for this kitchen renovation was to make it feel much lighter and bigger and to ensure the design had a classic feel that wouldn’t look dated in a few years’ time.

To make the space feel bigger and get the kitchen set up in a more practical way for the family, we reconfigured the layout. The kitchen was flipped on its footprint, and we added a peninsula to increase worktop space. The hob and ovens, and dishwasher and fridge all switched places, too.

This new layout works so much better for the family and sets everything up just how they need it.

The next major change was the look and feel. The original kitchen had contemporary wood-effect gloss doors with black worktops and long handles, which the clients felt was dark and the gloss too clinical.

Quartz Kitchen Worktop

This bespoke in-frame shaker kitchen completely transforms the room, creating the sense of light and space the clients wanted to achieve. The kitchen is elegant and practical and slots into this home and its rural surroundings perfectly.

Key Appliances

Our clients love to cook, so the kitchen set-up and appliances were key to this design. This kitchen is kitted out with an 1810 Company grey finish sink, Siemens oven, combi and warming drawer, under-counter Essentials wine cooler and Quooker Cube and BORA Pure.

The Quooker Cube and BORA Pure weren’t on the original wish list, but we recommended them, and the client is thrilled with both, especially the sparkling water function with the Quooker Cube.

The family have also been very impressed with the efficiency of the BORA Pure’s downdraft extraction in preventing food odours and smoke from infiltrating the rest of the open-plan space.
