Traditional style Martin Moore kitchen with larder - great if you love to entertain

Traditional style Martin Moore kitchen with larder – great if you love to entertain. Notice the cornicing and intricate details.

These timeless doors feature a thick frame around a central panel, often accessorised with beading plus ornate detailing such as panelling, grooves, and cornicing as well as mantles. And since their early inception, the style has been credited with being simplistic, modest, and versatile.

Modern Shaker


Statement tiles and handles are great to add interest, such as in this Shaker-style kitchen. Harvey Jones kitchens start from £18,000.

This contemporary look is a lot simpler than its traditional counterpart, with thinner frames, clean lines, and more basic detailing – if any. The design works well in any type of home, from a converted warehouse or a barn to modern apartments.

A slab door style looks great in this cool Day True kitchen.

Being both modern and simplistic, this door style features a flat panel with a handle, making it incredibly versatile. It offers nearly an endless array of designs, which are the “ultimate choice” for a contemporary kitchen.

With a flat panel with no external fitting to open them, these doors are the cornerstone of modern design. Perfect if your preferred style is beautifully understated, handleless furniture is the perfect solution offering a seamless look which suits virtually any interior.
