When choosing a new kitchen, the trend is forever growing towards the Shaker Kitchen. Shaker kitchens are classic and timeless and they look fantastic in both a contemporary or modern home. They are also very easy to accessorize and decorate around.
A shaker kitchen is universal and also found around the world suiting modern homes, small cottages, farmhouses you name it the shaker kitchen suits it. This is why this style of kitchen is by far one of the most popular styles. The senior designer from our Second Nature kitchens encapsulates this: ‘Shaker kitchen style is very versatile. It achieves so much and gives the impression that it’s an effortless look that will continue to look fresh in years to come. It can be dressed up or down, truly traditional or with a modern edge,’.
There are some key details to consider when designing your new Shaker Kitchen. One of the details are the door handles and knobs. Traditionally these were made of timber which was painted or stained. The trend is now to have satin nickel knobs or cup handles which add an opulent burst of colour and class to the door. Wooden worktops also were the norm for a shaker kitchen but more modern, hardwearing materials are now coupled with the shaker style kitchen. The most popular of these colours being Calacatta, Statuario, Carrara or light-coloured quartz which add a contemporary edge.
Another important detail to include which really showcases your new Shaker Kitchen is to have open shelving which shows a few frequently used objects such as classic weighing scales, chopping board and cooking boards. It is also an idea to add some glass-fronted wall units to break up a solid row of doors which showcase your dinnerware or fine china.
