There are many additions we make to the properties of our clients. Our bespoke kitchens are some of the most popular. The made to measure cupboards and freestanding furniture we design is typical of a Shaker approach. In addition, we manufacture them using classic construction techniques. The result is a design that matches the owner’s original vision.
Right now you may be wondering what we mean when we talk about Shaker style kitchens. You may even have heard this term before but not know what it means. Read on to find out more.
The strict definition
The basic idea of these kitchens is an individual variety of furniture fashioned by a certain religious sect. Said sect formed as a division of the Quaker Church during the 18th Century. The Shakers lived a life that was unpretentious and straightforward. They evaded ornamentation and these values were mirrored in their houses. You would see basic kitchens with very few pieces of decoration.
It is possible for Shaker style bespoke kitchens to be contemporary or traditional in nature. This style is simplicity defined. It has top tier craftsmanship that looks brilliant without anyone needing lots of detail or unnecessary additions. With kitchen furniture, this means simple panelled, plain doors in light wood or natural hues. In many cases, they also have wooden door handles.
Usually, glass does not have much to do with Shaker kitchens. These days though, people want to stand out more. As a result, they might opt to use modern door handles or glass doors. They can still have a simple design that suits the Shaker style though.
