Shaker-style kitchens work in just about any style of home because of the timeless look and versatility. There is nothing fussy or elaborate about the simple, clean styling.
Shakers were originally craftsmen who broke away from the Quaker movement in the late 18th century. Their approach was to build simple furniture from local timbers and then paint them. That style has stood the test of time.
Traditionally made from oak and timber, most pieces are usually painted or sanded to show the quality workmanship.Modern living has been incorporated with free standing central islands and increasing use of chrome and gloss paint finishes, adding a fresher approach to the timeless styling.
Shaker kitchens are elegant and timeless and regardless of the look you settle on, you can guarantee that it will remain current for years to come. It is also renowned for its functionality and durability.
Although most worktops were originally made of wood, more and more customers now opt for granite or quartz, which provide a more hard-wearing surface and a contemporary twist.
