44 Timeless Shaker Cabinets Ideas For Your Kitchen
Kitchens are often hearts of homes as here we cook and talk, sometimes even entertain guests and enjoy communicating with the family, so its decor is important. Choosing style and colors for your kitchen is a tricky task and the look of the cabinets is another thing that will influence the final look. There are different types of cabinets that you may use in your kitchen but today I’d like to tell you about a very popular one – shaker style cabinets.
What Are Shaker Cabinets?
Shakers cabinet doors are butt joint recessed panel doors with simple and clean inside and outside edges. You will often find that they are furnished with light colors and feature basic hardware. Shaker cabinets got their name back in the 18th century from the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing—more commonly known as Shakers. Back in those days, any furniture made by the Shakers was known to have the best craftsmanship and was created with the highest standards. Each item was made with pride, and their design was durable, simplistic, and understated, perhaps that’s why they became so popular.

How To Use Shaker Cabinets In Your Kitchen?
Even though shaker cabinets are traditional, they are also versatile. No matter the design or decor, shaker cabinets can add simplistic beauty to every kitchen. Let’s find out how to add a bit of eye-catchiness to them.
For a modern, clean look to your kitchen, opt for two-toned cabinets. Add shaker cabinets throughout your kitchen with a dark green or navy for your lower cabinets, and white or even glass face cabinet for the upper ones. Adding paint to your shaker cabinets can take it to the next level and give your kitchen plenty of personality. From a bright yellow to pastel pink, adding color will give your cabinets a modern look and feel.
Dress up your shaker cabinets with glass-fronts with mullion molding. This works well in a white kitchen with neutral tones and beautiful natural wood countertops. Continue the minimalist look and feel by adding rustic shelving along with shaker cabinetry to your kitchen. Opt for lower cabinets and upper shelving to avoid your kitchen looking top-heavy. Plus, combining cabinetry and shelving is a great cost-effective option.
