Traditional Shaker Design

The shaker kitchen style was pioneered by a religious movement founded in 18th century England. Living by the values of honesty, utility and simplicity, the Shakers crafted their own furniture from durable hardwood. The characteristic five-panel cabinet was born of a desire to prioritise practicality over decoration.

 

With their minimalistic style and universal appeal, shaker kitchens have remained unwaveringly popular throughout the centuries. Tom Howley bespoke kitchens combine traditional influence with contemporary elements for a truly timeless aesthetic.

Shaker Kitchen FAQs

What Is a Shaker Style Kitchen?

Shaker-style kitchens take inspiration from the simple beauty of classic Shaker design. Founded in the 1700s, the self-sufficient Shakers lived by the principles of integrity and practicality. The furniture they created reflected these values wonderfully. Traditional shaker-style kitchens were made from sturdy materials and featured minimal detailing or ornamentation. Tom Howley bespoke kitchens deliver a beautiful combination of form and function, with an understated elegance that suits practically any home.

What Does a Shaker Kitchen Look Like?

Shaker kitchens pair function and practicality with a minimalistic, symmetrical and understated look. Shaker cabinets are characterised by a flat centre panel with square edges, creating a sleek, uncluttered aesthetic. Tom Howley kitchens are inspired by this traditional design but incorporate contemporary elements such as luxury worktops and polished chrome handles. The shaker style works with any layout, from galley kitchens to island kitchens.

 

What Is a 5-Piece Shaker Door?

Shaker doors feature a distinctive 5-piece design which has become synonymous with the style. A shaker cabinet door comprises a single flat panel in the centre, surrounded by square or rectangular rails (horizontal panels) and stiles (vertical panels). The look features clean, straight lines and little to no decoration, engraving or raised moulding. Tom Howley cabinets follow this simple, functional arrangement and radiate classic elegance.

Are Shaker Cabinets Still in Style?

The magnificent thing about shaker kitchens is that they never go out of style. While it’s based on a historical design, the shaker aesthetic is timelessly beautiful and has a universal appeal. Shaker kitchens are just as popular today as they ever were, and do not look out of place in a 21st-century household. Tom Howley kitchen collections put a contemporary twist on classic design: our bespoke kitchens suit almost any home, from penthouse apartments to farmhouse cottages.

What Colours Do Shaker Cabinets Come In?

Traditional shaker cabinets were often unpainted, leaving the natural colour and grain of the wood on display. Today, although naked wood remains popular, shaker kitchens come in a variety of colours such as greys, greens and blues. Some of Tom Howley’s most popular bespoke paint colours include Avocado, Tansy, Nightshade, Willow and Dewberry. Request a free brochure or visit one of our showrooms to see our beautiful colour palettes for yourself.

Are Shaker Cabinets Good Quality?

Shaker kitchens are renowned for their beautiful workmanship. This is one of the reasons why they have endured in popularity throughout the years. Crafted from durable materials, shaker kitchens prioritise convenience without compromising on style. At the Tom Howley workshop, our experts skilfully craft each kitchen to exceptional standards of quality. Visit a Tom Howley showroom to experience the luxury of our kitchens in person.
