How to design a Shaker Kitchen

Shaker kitchen designs were first created in the late 1700s, focusing on simplicity, honesty and practicality. These morals are reflected in the design choices and aesthetic details to renovate kitchens tailored to the house owner ideals. Shaker kitchens truly embrace the craftsmanship of traditional wood, as it is cut, assembled and chiselled to perfection.

Features of a Shaker Kitchen

  • Shaker kitchens are characterised by their unique doors, cabinets and drawers. They have a raised rectangular frame around the centre panels.
  • Are you planning to keep the Shaker theme throughout your house, or are you just trying to modernise your kitchen? Consistently themed furniture across your household makes a big difference to the overall aesthetics.
  • Perhaps this space can be more than just a kitchen; maybe a multifunctional room for entertainment, studies, working from home, or a space for larger gatherings?
  • Shaker Kitchen Layout Plan

    Shaker kitchens have attractive and well balanced proportions to suit the unique shape of your home.

    Whether you want a shaker kitchen island, a peninsula, or a breakfast bar; it all comes down to the layout of the kitchen. Although you may be limited by space, there are plenty of tips and tricks you can use to truly make the best out of your shaker kitchen layout.

    One of the main benefits of using a kitchen designer to renovate your shaker kitchen, is the ability to utilise their expertise. After all, we’ve been designing bespoke shaker kitchens since 1967.

    Furniture Layout and appliances

    The furniture layout of a Shaker kitchen often upholds the traditional principle of a kitchen triangle, ensuring that the placement of the stove, refrigerator and sink create a smooth workflow. When renovating shaker kitchens, it’s worth considering integrating modern-day appliances. This add more functionality to the kitchen and expands on the overall in-frame shaker aesthetics.

    Custom made cabinetry allows you to dedicated specific drawers with inserts tailored to their use; be it for knives, plates, bins, or cooking equipment.

    Colours, Contrast and Quality

    A great shaker kitchen design matches the flooring, worktops, cabinetry colours and considers the interiors of the rest of your house, to truly reflect your property’s character.

    Alongside these considerations, natural and artificial light sources play a major role in any kitchen design.

    You will want furniture and paint with great longevity and durability – one of our specialities. All of our furniture is hand-crafted and hand-painted to ensure a perfect finish, made to last decades.
