Shaker kitchens have become increasingly popular in recent years, thanks to their timeless design consisting of simplicity and clean lines. This style of kitchen is known for durability and for being made with close attention to detail resulting in wonderful quality.
Shaker kitchens originated within the religious community of the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing, more commonly referred to as the Shakers. Shakers lived in self-sufficient communities, known for their craftsmanship, particularly when it came to making furniture and kitchens that were built to last. This craftsmanship and quality has been appreciated for hundreds of years, and today Shaker kitchens are one of the most popular and in demand styles.
Shaker furniture was typically characterised by its simplicity and honesty, and all pieces were created with durability, functionality and purpose in mind. Modern-day shaker kitchens are created with these principles in mind, reflecting the tradition behind this beautiful style. Shaker kitchens are typically open plan and very functional, with clean lines bordering on minimalism and a noted lack of ornamentation, allowing this style’s beauty to shine through with its simplicity. Shaker style cabinet doors are iconic for their five panel design which has been adapted across many styles to date.
If you’re after a bespoke kitchen that is open and airy, balanced and of the highest quality, then you might want to consider a shaker kitchen. While shaker kitchens have their roots in simplicity and humbleness, they can be easily customised and accented with modern elements. Because simplicity is the backbone of shaker kitchens, it works very well when people choose to add modern touches to give the kitchen a unique feel. And while you might assume that the simple design of a Shaker kitchen means boring, you’d be mistaken. Traditionally, Shaker kitchens are a combination of natural stained wood, combined with painted wood in cheerful primary colours of blue, red, green and yellow.
