Blue Shaker-style kitchen ideas to put on your moodboard

Do you love the look of a blue Shaker-style kitchen? Then scroll through the ‘gram and you’re bound to come across a design in this much sought-after shade. I know I’ve double tapped rather a few.

The perfect blend of classic design style and on-trend colour, a blue Shaker-style kitchen works so well both in a modern or a period home. So the beauty of this look is you can really amp up the vibe for a maximalist look (think accents of pink and bold patterned tiles). However, you can also keep things on the traditional side with marble, neutral pairings and brass taps.

When I’m putting together the magazine, there are always plenty of lovely blue Shaker-style kitchens to choose from to fill the pages. So what better way to show them off that to collect some of the best in this very blog post?

Here’s my latest pick of these beautiful kitchens to put on your moodboard…

(Oh and if you’re not sure what type of cabinetry you’re after, take our quiz!)

Firstly: a blue painted island adds an accent to this otherwise white kitchen. Design by Kitchens Bespoke where kitchens start from £25,000.

Secondly, the bright blue Shaker-style kitchen units in this Higham Furniture design offer plenty of storage and prep space. Also, two islands… dreamy! From £30,000, excluding appliances.

Thirdly: you’d never know this kitchen was once a warren of smaller rooms. The owners renovated the space to create this large area, complete with stylish blue Shaker-style kitchen. Also, just look at that clever built-in banquette seating – lovely. Designed by West End Interiors, the kitchen is by Davonport. Photography: Darren Chung.

Fourthly: designed by Day True, this kitchen is a modern take on a classic blue Shaker-style kitchen. With a slimmer profile, the doors have that Shaker-typical frame look, but with a sleeker finish.

So who said dark blue can’t work in a small kitchen? Take a look at this lovely design in a flat in London. The kitchen is from Devol with the herringbone flooring adding to the classic-modern feel. Design, Huntsmore. Photography: Jody Stewart.
a pale lavender Alexander Lewis design with three pendant lights above an island
You don’t have to go for a dark blue. Take two paler shades like in this kitchen and you have another winning formula. The look is more on the classic, vintage side of the scale, but just as lovely. Blue Shaker-style kitchen, Alexander Lewis. Photography: James French.

This Devol kitchen has actually recycyled from the owner’s previous scheme. The units were re-sprayed in Pantry Blue (a Devol shade) to fit in with a new look. Clever. Take a closer look here. Photography: Jemma Watts Photography.

Lastly: blue is the favourite colour of this kitchen’s owner so it made sense to choose it for the design. The dark shade is offset with a neutral island, helping the tall back units blend into the wall without the colour becoming too dominant. Kitchen, bar stools and lights from Martin Moore.
