  3. Bridger Kitchen Diary – A closer look at the Modern / Country Shaker in Epping, Essex

A two-tone handmade kitchen sits here in this peaceful home with our bespoke modern style furniture. We filled this loving space with handcrafted cabinets, traditional style appliances and gorgeous hardware by Perrin & Rowe.

Say hello to this modern kitchen meeting a country kitchen…

… with the modern shaker by Nicholas Bridger in this idyllic countryside, Epping in Essex


The modern and traditional cabinets are built with a shallow recessed panel to the doors with a traditional style moulding. The wooden worktops and tiled flooring bring the whole of the kitchen together making it a cosy retreat to cook in as well as sitting in for a delicious morning coffee.

We are loving the mix of different knobs on the cabinets, these really bring out the traditional vibes of this loving kitchen.

A wonderful traditional Range Master range cooker sits amongst symmetrical cabinets on this side of the kitchen. This cream coloured one is the perfect cooker to be added to this space. Range Master’s deliver pro results and come in many sizes and colours to suit all types of homes.

The cooking apple green units really stand out against the cream coloured walls, the door was even painted in this colour too!

Cooking Apple Green by Farrow & Ball is a fresh iconic green which always feels charmingly familiar and, like all greens, creates the feeling of health and vigour. It has a rich, old fashioned look in dark situations, but often feels much fresher and brighter in well-lit rooms and when contrasted with a bright white.

On the other side of the galley-style layout, a beautiful sink area has been created with a Caple Chepstow sit-on ceramic double-bowl. A traditional Perrin & Rowe style has been chosen for the taps in an antique brass finish.

This is a lovely little kitchen layout with a mix of cupboards and drawers with a sweet little basket area that is a wonderful traditional idea. They easily pull-out for our client’s needs. The clean lines of the furniture flow beautifully around the space filling up each corner.

Look how gorgeous this turned pedestal table is in the corner with an L-shaped bench. This was truly bespoke to our client’s specifications, as they wanted a cosy area to sit for breakfast and coffee with friends. We designed and built this space just how they wanted and added storage drawers underneath for items that aren’t necessarily used all of the time.

Our client then added a padded seat to sit on and decorative cushions to mix it up a little, still keeping within the green theme.

The space has been filled with lots of storage in a galley kitchen style to provide a space for everything. The fridge/freezer lies behind the tall single cabinet and acts as part of the ‘kitchen triangle’ making it easy for our client to access ingredients quickly and move from each side.
