Why your next kitchen should be a shaker kitchen

Shaker-style kitchens are without a doubt the ‘little black dress of kitchen design. It’s a simple yet elegant design style that happens to be timeless. It’s incredibly versatile and can be easily accessorised with a buttercup handle. Whether it’s natural wood or a colour of your choice, these are some of the reasons why your next kitchen should be a shaker!

It’s a classic

Two things make a shaker kitchen – craftsmanship and simplicity. This is what gives this design its timeless and classic qualities. Your shaker doors can be handleless for a sleek modern look or adorned with brass handles. Shaker doors look elegant in any shade and are extremely versatile for cabinets doors.

Go for colours

The simple lines in shaker doors make it ideal for anyone who wants colour in their kitchen. While so many kitchens are still laced with white, cream, and beige shades, shaker doors make the perfect kitchen style for anyone who wants colour in their home and wants to create a contrast between the cabinets in various areas of their new kitchen.

Give it an edge

If you like the idea of a shaker-style kitchen but don’t want to go big on colour, you can add raw and unfished elements to your kitchen for a less traditional feel. This can be anything from an exposed brick wall, copper piping, stainless steel appliances, or concrete-like worktops. Finish them off with bar handles for a classic kitchen with a modern twist!

Make it modern

While the majority of shaker-style kitchens look great in a contemporary setting, basic design style has evolved and you can bring in various sleek and minimal elements to make your shaker-style kitchen more modern. Go for plinths under your island for a floating furniture aesthetic or waterfall worktops for a seamless feel.
