The shaker style originates from England and dates back over 200 years. It has symbolized renunciation of pomposity and excessive luxury: it focuses on minimalism in details and soft colors. It is a “no frills” concept: only clear symmetrical lines, square frames on the front surfaces and absence of complex decorative ornaments.
Another feature of shaker kitchen cabinets is the use of natural wood with its beautiful texture and unique pattern.
Maintenance and Care
Proper maintenance ensures the longevity of shaker kitchen cabinets. Regular cleaning with a mild, non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth is recommended. Avoid harsh chemicals that can damage the wood finish. Periodically inspect hinges and handles for any loose parts and tighten them as needed. Taking these simple steps will keep your cabinets looking pristine for years.
Shaker cabinets offer flexibility in hardware selection. Consider classic brushed nickel handles for a timeless look or sleek black knobs for a modern touch. The hardware you choose can dramatically impact the overall aesthetic of your kitchen, allowing you to customize the style to match your taste and kitchen decor.
