Up next we have our stylish, Wakefield Range.
The Wakefield Painted features a solid ash frame with internal moulding and a veneered ash centre panel. The Doors brushed finish gives the shaker style door a greater depth of grain.
What is a shaker kitchen?
A Shaker Kitchen is a kitchen style that is distinctly minimal with a clean-lined design that has little or no decoration.
The original Shaker kitchen was crafted many decades ago but has significantly outgrown its humble beginnings. Popular and covetable, the Shaker name has carried right through and even is incorporated into trade names of companies through the years.
(The shaker style has been around for almost three centuries and still holds its value as one of the most stylish kitchens on the market)
Reeling in the years
Traditionally, Shaker kitchens were made from best but often from the least expensive wood available. Tree’s like the Fruit tree or pine tree were used in their furniture, resulting in the quintessential light-wood look. However, present-day Shaker cabinet kitchen designs can incorporate mixed new material and almost any wood type.
Even though it’s very traditional, the Shaker kitchen cabinet style is equally at home in a modern kitchen. Wrap-around solid surface countertops are a sleek way to add a modern touch to your kitchen. You can also add white or ivory shaker kitchen doors to the upper cabinets to contrast with darker lower cabinets for a two-tone look. A cream gloss shaker kitchen is the perfect ode to the modern style of the 1950’s.
(Shaker doors are available in our showroom in almost two dozen different colours)
