Modern Classics by Millhaven Homes, USA
This lovely white and dark blue shaker by Millhaven Homes has some great design features including the chrome cup handles on the drawers and the small knobs on the cabinet doors. The white brick style tiles splash back works well with this kitchen. White on White clearly works effortlessly here as the white worktops combine well with the cabinets and tiles, the different textures being the key in these elements working together.
The kitchen above was also featured in the post Refined White Shaker Style Kitchen in The Heber Showcase by Millhaven Homes however this image shows some of the other lovely elements in a little more detail including that stunning grey worktop and the combination of drawers and doors with the black handles and knobs.
This is a kitchen in one of Millhaven Homes most distinguished builds, The Chateau at Creekside and what a Luxury Custom Home Kitchen this is. It features elements at the higher end of the budget however many of these features can be taken into any shaker style kitchen design. I love the brass lights above the sink area and the opulent detail on the extraction unit. The island is a light grey colour featuring those beautiful corner posts almost like a kitchen table but with more decadence.
Another elegant and fresh white shaker by Millhaven Homes in the Fox Hollow Classic again with lovely wood flooring and large chrome handles. As shown with some of the other white shaker kitchens, most have a slightly different coloured island to break up the abundance of white and it works with quite well with most colours depending on your other interior design choices.
The dark wood flooring enhancing the white and grey shaker with white stone or quartz worktops.
This one image shows why white is a timeless classic and how it works so well with many kitchen design elements. I love the splashback and the chrome trim on the extractor. As mentioned earlier in the post, white can enhance the other elements in the kitchen such as the stunning wolf range cooker.

Luxury White Shaker Style Kitchens by Troyer Builders, USA
My love for the quality and clear high end product that Troyer Builders produces build after build is evident in this absolutely perfect white shaker style kitchen. My favourite piece is that black and gold statement extraction unit which suits this kitchen so well. The worn wood flooring and white granite worktops combined with the other elements in this room that when done well, it works effortlessly. If you walk into a house that is for sale and see this kitchen you would without doubt put in an offer without needing to see the rest of it.
Another great shaker style kitchen example by Troyer Builders with white and grey shaker style cabinets with beautiful marble worktops. The worn wood flooring and large timber beams on the ceiling enhance the depth of the design.

Elegant Shaker Style Kitchens by McEwan Custom Homes
This elegant high end kitchen in a luxury custom home by McEwan Custom Homes featuring lovely white drawer fronts and cabinet doors. The large gold pendants and the grey wall units combine well with the wood flooring and marble splash back behind the cooker.
Another great shaker style kitchen by McEwan Custom Homes featuring a stunning extractor fan housing and chrome industrial pendants. The wood lookalike floor tiles a great alternative to real wooden flooring especially if you expect to clean the floor often and suit home owners with pets.
The image above is combination of the elements of the previous images. I love the number of drawers units and lighting either side of the cooker. This kitchen shows great balance and has a ton of storage space. A real benefit of a white shaker kitchen is that even if you have a load of cabinets they won’t be too over powering as the light colour maintains the width of the length of the room as in the example above.
