Less-is-more Shaker Suffolk

Less-is-more Shaker Suffolk

What makes Suffolk unique?

Neptune kitchens have lots in common. They’re all made from natural timber, they all have an eggshell painted finish, and they’re all designed to be proper pieces of furniture in their own right. But, they’ve all got a handful of details that make them different to one another too…

Oak interiors

When you open any drawer in Suffolk, instead of a painted interior you’ll be greeted by natural, characterful oak. While in the cupboards, it’s a combination of the two that’ll meet your eyes.

Subtle strip lighting

You can choose to have thin LED strips inside any of your Suffolk cabinets to help you see what’s inside. Use them inside glazed cabinets and they’ll provide a warm background glow come evening too.

Our largest larder

Suffolk’s the only collection with a full height, double door larder. It’s a real showcase piece with cavernous storage space, including door racks, vegetable drawers and an optional marble shelf.

Freestanding potboard

This slim design is almost like a kitchen’s console table. Position it on its own or at the end of a kitchen island to give you extra chopping space or, when topped with marble, a spot for making pastry.

Suffolk’s colour options

Besides work surfaces, handles and cabinetry configurations, one of the ways you can make Suffolk your own is through our custom paint service. Although it comes as standard in Driftwood with Silver Birch and oak interiors, you can choose from any of the 28 hues in our core paint library (and any of the many more in our archive) to colour your cabinetry.


The cabinets

Our designers are there to help you create the perfect cabinetry configuration for you, but so you can see all the different options at your fingertips, we’ve gathered all the base, wall, countertop and full height cabinets for Suffolk together here.

  • The Charlecote island

    While your designer can build you an island using fitted Suffolk cabinetry, there’s also the option of our freestanding Charlecote design. It can be configured in various ways, to suit kitchens large and small and needing storage or seating (or both). Charlecote can pair with any of our collections but, being equally as disciplined in its design, it’s Suffolk that is its perfect partner.


    See our kitchens in store

    Our website is a good introduction to our kitchens, but nothing beats seeing them in person. You can explore all four of our collections in just about any of our stores (where rooting through cupboards and peering into drawers is very much encouraged), and you’ll also find that each one usually sits side-by-side with a dining area or perhaps even a laundry room to give you a real feel for how they’ll look in your own home.
