Today's painted shaker-style kitchens combine modern, cutting edge appliances with beautiful painted cabinetry.
Today, traditional painted cabinets have been given a modern makeover with contemporary handles, worktop surfaces, appliances and flooring. For a modern take on the Shaker-style kitchen, pair painted cabinet doors with contemporary knobs and handles such as sleek brass bars or square glass knobs. Choosing sleek worktop surfaces like marble or granite and fresh flooring such as poured concrete will also go a long way in creating a sleek, contemporary look. A bright feature wall, kitchen island, bar stools and pendant lighting will add a sense of drama to a kitchen and provide a strong visual impact, helping give neutrals a new lease of life. For a kitchen that commands attention, colour up your kitchen shelves and cabinetry with these gorgeous colour ideas.
The exposed brick wall and canary yellow bar stools give a kick of modernity to a classic Shaker style look. The solid expansion of charcoal grey cabinets look sleek and solid, while the bar stools break up the dark colour scheme and help define the dining space.
This kitchen has a three-metre island topped with seamless Arabesque marble. The pale blue and black painted cabinets work well with the marble surfaces and vintage chairs.

Painted window frames add definition to this modern classic kitchen. Spotlights in the ceiling provide functional lighting, while the over-island pendants create a sense of height and depth. Elegance comes thanks to the subtle mix of polished wood, stone and concrete. The dark blue cupboards give a sophisticated tone in this kitchen, which is also a warmer (yet still timeless) alternative to white, black or grey cabinetry.
