Shaker Kitchen Design

A Shaker Kitchen design is three things: simple, functional and high-quality. But its real beauty comes in the interpretation of the style.

A Shaker Kitchen can look equally as impressive whether modern or traditional with a neutral and understated colour pallet or with a more statement shade.

Universally attractive and invented by the Shakers in the 1700s the humble yet firm design philosophies stand the test of time and continue to be a popular choice. Their belief in a place for everything and making sure you only have what you need is something that will never fall out of fashion no matter the other trends that may come and go.

Following the analysis of the most like images tagged ‘Kitchens of Instagram’ in 2020 Dulux revealed that it is the traditional features of the Shaker kitchens that have drawn the most likes opposed to sleek, new kitchen features. Shaker cabinets came out top as the most popular kitchen trend on Instagram with 25 of the 27 most liked kitchens analysed by Dulux including Shaker Kitchen cabinets.

It is by far our favourite style to work with and many of the values that came to fruition back in the 18th century resonate with the vision and beliefs of our company. No frills or unnecessary extras – everything designed and chosen for a reason, and everything with its own function.

We believe in the quality of the of the workmanship that was inspired by the Shaker era. Following principles of humble, unornamented design put together with dedication at the hands of skilled craftsmen.

Despite the rich heritage the Shaker Kitchen design continues to evolve over time and has beautifully adapted to suit modern living. So, no matter if you long for a strictly traditional style or a more contemporary take you can rest assured Shaker design oozes timeless class and can effortlessly combine a perfect blend of old and new.
