Shaker furniture originates from the concept of simplicity, utility and honesty, specialising in a number of minimalist designs, resulting in well-made, functional furniture. Instead of using ornate designs and embellishments, furniture with multiple purposes and asymmetric designs created visual interest. It is a beautifully functional furniture style, resulting in minimalistic and functional furniture that will last for years to come.

Shaker Kitchens FAQs
What is a Shaker kitchen?
A Shaker kitchen is simplistic and timeless, with a characteristic square-framed design which has a recessed flat centre panel. Shaker kitchens are typically made from wood, but they can also be made in gloss or vinyl materials for a practical and modern finish. The beauty of the Shaker style is its versatile, elegant and hardwearing, making it a great choice for busy family homes where functionality is important.
What materials are used in Shaker doors?
Shaker cabinets were traditionally made with materials such as maple wood, pine or cherry wood, although modern shaker furniture is often made using oak or birchwood for a modern spin on this classic style. The handles on Shaker cabinetry are also made from wood in many cases, while worktops are commonly made from granite or marble for a modern yet practical kitchen.
Can Shaker kitchens be modern?
While the style of the shaker design dates back to the 1700s, Shaker kitchens aren’t old fashioned. This design is more popular than ever and there are various ways to incorporate the style into your home for a modern spin on a classic, from painted cabinets in a range of colours to natural finishes or charcoal tones for a sophisticated finish.
Are Shaker kitchens more expensive?
A Shaker kitchen isn’t as expensive as you might think. One of the core features of this style is a simplistic design that’s made from durable materials, so not only are they more affordable to purchase but they are also long-lasting, meaning your money goes further as you won’t need to repair or replace your kitchen for many years to come.
