Over recent years we have seen the Shaker door style grow into a more modern format. There have been so many influences on this, with braver colour options being one of the main drivers. As colour palettes become stronger and bolder the style of the shaker has become more simple and cleaner. The new Verona Navy is a perfect example of this move in trend. The door has clean lines and smooth surfaces allowing for the opulent and luxury Navy Blue colour to make the statement. This can be further accentuated by white and light worktops, tiling and statement flooring.
Darker Shades of Grey
Keeping on the theme of the more modern style of Shaker the Verona Dark Grey hits all the same buttons as the Navy in terms of bold colours and luxurious tones. Dark Grey shakers have grown in popularity over recent years and is no longer considered a drastic colour choice but more a confident one. Again white worktops contrast really well with the strong dark grey but also wood finishes in the flooring or worktops add a real richness and warmth to the room. Bringing a botanical element into the room will also add to the overall aesthetics, bringing in colour and life.
Matt contemporary doors styles have also seen a huge boost in popularity and again the dark colours are proving the most popular options. Sleek J Pull finishes give the door a cleanness that allows for the stronger colours and the matt finish elevates the design even further. As with all dark colours the interior treatments should contrast and brighten the spaces so paler greys and wood tones work really well. Accents colours can be brought into the design depending on the look you want to achieve but accessories are the best option for these as can be updated easily.
