When upgrading or remodeling a kitchen you really can’t find anything better or more beautiful than Shaker style kitchen cabinets. The kitchen in most homes tends to have a very busy, cluttered look. But when you install Shaker kitchen cabinets, with their sleek look and clean lines, they create a more open looking appearance, a classic style that won’t seem dated over time.
Shaker cabinets were specifically designed to be proudly plain and highly practical, to reflect the distinctive movement in Shaker style furniture. This style of cabinetry fits well many different design concepts, from country to contemporary, bringing harmony to whatever look you’re trying to create in your kitchen. This is why they’ve become so popular over the years.
Shaker furniture first arrived in the United States around 1774, brought here from central Europe by a religious sect known as the “Shakers, who made their home in New York. Over the next hundred years Shakers continued to emigrate from Europe, populating New England, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. They were very talented craftsmen who were known for designing and building top quality, very solid furniture. Their religion taught that adornment offended God, so their style of woodworking, although beautiful, tended toward the more simplistic and practical.
It is now nearly 250 years later and this style stills seems to be all the rage throughout the country, especially when it comes to installing Shaker style cabinets in contemporary kitchens. There are no design flourishes in these cabinets, instead they have a plain more functional aesthetic with simple sleek lines. This allows Shaker style cabinets to adapt perfectly to a more modern kitchen.
Shaker style cabinets most often come with a beautiful natural wood finish that is sometimes stained to create a darker shade while still featuring the natural wood grain and hues. You will also find many modern kitchens with Shaker cabinets that have been painted, often in white or gray to give the kitchen a nice open and light feel, which is popular among people with contemporary homes. In modern kitchens, Shaker cabinets go well modern hardware, stainless steel appliances and white marble or light-colored stone or granite countertops.
