Shaker kitchen cabinets are a popular style of cabinet known for their simple, clean lines and classic design. They’re named after the Shakers, a religious group that came to the United States in the late 1700s. The Shakers were known for their minimalistic, functional, and high-quality craftsmanship, traits echoed in the design of Shaker cabinets.
Here are the key characteristics of Shaker kitchen cabinets:
These features combine to give Shaker cabinets a timeless appeal that fits into many different kitchen designs. Despite their simple design, they have a sophisticated look that can enhance the overall aesthetic of a kitchen.
The elegant simplicity of shaker-style cabinets makes them an excellent foundation for a wide range of interior decorating ideas. Unlike other finishes such as espresso or white, cabinets built in the shaker style can be matched with almost any color or texture on your walls, floors, or appliances.
You’ll find that it’s very easy to add colors and textures in a shaker kitchen design without clashing. Most homeowners choose conservative shaker cabinet colors in light tones, which makes it easy to add accent colors to your appliances and other furnishings.
For their countertops, splashes, walls, and floors, some homeowners use bright-yet-complementary colors, including red and yellow, but softer pastels will work equally well. Or, you could go for an overall rustic or primitive effect by decorating your kitchen or bathroom with wooden handicrafts and other textured accessories to complement the craftsmanship of shaker cabinets.
