Shaker fitted kitchens follow after the Shaker movement which evolved from the religious sect of the same name, founded in the late 1700s in New England. At the heart of The Shaker philosophy was a belief in functionality; elaborate decoration was unnecessary resulting in a simple and practical design solutions. Shaker style kitchens are hugely popular with our clients because the resulting kitchen is easy to clean and maintain and tremendously durable and hard working.
Shaker Style Kitchens with a Modern Twist
A typical Shaker kitchen is made of wood with square framed cabinets, doors with an inset panel; doors are either left bare or painted. If you want an authentic Shaker look, then we would expect a matt finish to be used, although we do have some glossier options available within our Shaker ranges. While his style of kitchen puts an emphasis on form and practicality while still offering sophistication and elegance, adding more modern touches can add sophistication and help you put an individual stamp on your finished design.
Traditionally we would expect to see wooden work surfaces and counter tops, but you can add marble or other finishes to add a touch of modern chic and practicality; natural finishes such as granite and marble both work well, and help enhance the overall impact and final effect.
Our team here at Swansea Home Improvements can help you find your own style and create a finished room where practical form and function blends seamlessly and elegantly with modern sophistication, to create a truly spectacular finish.
