Shaker Kitchen

SHAKER KITCHEN

Shaker aesthetics’ lack of specific details – everything is stripped down and clean – makes it a timeless style.
In England, where shaker kitchens are common, they often have a rustic expression – rustic and real – while our Scandinavian variant is neater and not tied to an older style.
A shaker kitchen can be mixed with classic attributes, such as a wall clad with mother-of-pearl, or more modern materials such as countertops and stone floors.
Therefore, a shaker kitchen is right in most homes. Not only is it beautiful, there is also a fascinating story to tell the diners.

 

More info about the shaker movement, and how they have affected today’s kitchen aesthetics, is available HERE.

THE SHAKER DOOR

The typical shaker door consists of five parts: Four parts for the frame and a “mirror” in the middle.

The shaker door is without profiling – the edges are completely straight. In the same way, the shaker carpenters have been building doors since the middle of the 19th century.

Beautiful drawer fronts

Doors and drawer fronts in our shaker kitchens are recessed – they are alive with the frame. It is therefore a distance between the doors, which contributes to a tight and beautiful impression.

Our shaker kitchens, as well as the shaker style in general, lack unnecessary gimmicks and frills. It is stylish and stripped down. (The Shaker members themselves considered ornaments unnecessary, even sinful.)

Open shelves and staples

Typical of shaker kitchens are open shelves, as a complement to tall wall cabinets. It gives a more airy impression.

Another important detail in our kitchens is the hinges, which are of the classic Swedish model – stacked hinges in untreated steel with a cone-shaped knob – which are painted in the same color as the carpentry.
