4 ways to style a shaker kitchen

Discover the perfect shaker kitchen to match your décor personality

Dunham Midnight kitchen

Shaker kitchens refer to a classic cabinet style with a raised border framing each door panel, but that doesn’t mean you’re limited to traditional décor styles if you choose this option for your new kitchen. In fact, from the conventional to the contemporary, there are a diverse range of shaker cabinet colours available, combined with a whole host of different ways to personalise a shaker kitchen to make it your own.

Read on to discover which shaker style is right for your home.

Minimalist chic

The minimalist look doesn’t have to mean sticking to neutral-tone kitchens, so why not opt for a striking midnight blue shaker kitchen paired with chic marble-effect worktops and light wood herringbone flooring? This style works well when mixed with Scandi-inspired geometric tiles and house-plants dotted around the kitchen for a hint of vibrant greenery.

Pastels and personality

Looking for a décor style that’s full of personality? Then why not match a shaker kitchen in a contemporary shade of blue with contrasting dark wooden floors to create a truly unique look. To avoid overpowering a smaller room, stick to neutral shades for the walls and worktops, and add statement light fixtures and decorative accessories in a complementary shade of blue for a cohesive finish.

Let there be light

Create a light and airy look with open skylights over a natural wood shaker kitchen, fresh white splashback tiling and pale grey marble-effect worktops. Include a breakfast bar to create the ideal sunny spot to serve up a relaxing weekend brunch, and don’t forget a wine rack so you can enjoy late summer evenings with a relaxing glass of red.

Cosy cottage

Embrace countryside charm by pairing shaker cabinets in a classic shade of neutral pale grey with wood worktops, exposed brickwork and a traditional range cooker. Finish the look with copper-tone pans hanging above the cooker, fresh wildflowers on the kitchen table and a family-sized casserole dish full of something delicious bubbling away on the hob.
