Shaker Hamptons Style Kitchen

What is a Shaker Kitchen?

The shaker style is named after the distinctive style of furniture developed by the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing – known as Shakers. The Shakers’ followed principles of simplicity, utility and honesty which were reflected in their design and craftsmanship.

A Shaker kitchen has a classic look with cabinets and doors with recessed panels and a framed profile referred to as the “rail and stile”.  Shaker style cabinets work well with a Hamptons style kitchen. The classic shaker style combines with the light, bright and whitewashed Hamptons style interior to create a sophisticated and beachy vibe which is perfect for Sydney homes. Shaker kitchens with their simple and unpretentious design will work perfectly in all different types of homes from cottages, terraces and modern homes.
