When it comes to kitchen design, there's a style that has stood the test of time: the shaker kitchen. This timeless and versatile design has captured the hearts of homeowners for centuries. At many kitchen showrooms, you’ll find this style on display. And at Crouch Design, where we specialise in conjuring up bespoke kitchens, bespoke furniture and media units for discerning clients throughout Sevenoaks and its surrounds, we believe that Shaker kitchens are the epitome of functional beauty and have a lot to offer to the modern home.
Shaker kitchens take their name from the Shaker religious community, which was founded in the 18th century. The Shakers were known for their dedication to simplicity, craftsmanship, and functionality in all aspects of life, and their furniture and kitchen designs reflect these values. Today, Shaker-style kitchens continue to embody these principles, making them a popular choice for homeowners around Sevenoaks who appreciate both style and substance. When filled with bespoke furniture – and perhaps matching fixtures like media units, when in open-plan kitchen-dining room layouts – they can elevate a property to all new levels of aesthetic and functional achievement.
One of the standout features of shaker kitchens is their clean and uncluttered appearance. The cabinet doors are typically flat-panelled with simple, square or rectangular frames. This design exudes elegance and sophistication while remaining unpretentious and practical. Shaker kitchens are incredibly versatile, complementing a wide range of interior styles from traditional to contemporary, and you’ll see a fair few different approaches in Sevenoaks kitchen showrooms. But as with most aspects of home development, we still believe that it’s bespoke which offer the most value, and realise the true potential of the shaker-style.
We take immense pride in offering bespoke kitchens in the shaker-style, kitchens which are a testament to quality craftsmanship; the same standard of craftsmanship will be also found with our bespoke furniture and media units, found in countless Sevenoaks homes. All the aforementioned products are meticulously designed and built to suit your unique preferences and needs. Whether you prefer classic white cabinets or a more modern approach with a splash of colour, shaker kitchens can be tailored to your vision.
