Perhaps the most important underlying feature of a shaker style kitchen is its functionality, with every element of the kitchen having a place.
History of Shaker Kitchens
The shaker kitchen design was first inspired by “The Shakers”, a religious group famed for their high quality, handcrafted furniture.
Cherry and maple were the most commonly used woods for the production of original shaker furniture, due to their colour, strength and most importantly, availability. Shaker style furniture is now produced with a wide range of high-quality woods.
A fundamental belief they held was that everything should serve a purpose, which resulted in the introduction of designs such as tables with built in drawers.
Traditional shaker design door & drawer fronts are the pinnacle of craftsmanship and functionality, with the original designs unchanged to this day.
Features of Shaker Kitchens
The most distinguishable feature of a shaker style kitchen is the cabinet doors, which are square framed and feature recessed panels.
Other common features include drawers with simple turned timber knobs, neatly integrated appliances, strong pegs for hanging utensils and impressive stand-alone larders or islands.
Perhaps the most attractive offering of a shaker style kitchen is that the design possibilities are near endless, everything is customisable and can be designed to your exact preference and specification including materials, colours and finishes.
