The Shaker kitchens clean design originates from the principles of ‘simplicity, utility and honesty’. The Shakers believed that making something well was “an act of prayer” so each item epitomised simplicity whilst displaying understated elegance, skill and care in the pursuit of perfection.
These are principles which still hold today at The White Kitchen Company, we aim to deliver functionality, innovative joinery and craftsmanship within every kitchen we make. Our Shaker Kitchen furniture is handmade using both modern and traditional techniques with quality wood. A core component of Shaker quality the ‘Mortise and Tenon joint’ is used in the construction to give the highest quality and strength to our cabinets and kitchen units.
All our Shaker units are built in the in-frame style which means the doors are hung inside a frame rather than hanging on the outside of the kitchen cabinet like cheaper modern units. We have a modular system, which allows you to buy directly from our online store using our design guide or allow us to do it for you. Either way, you can achieve a unique bespoke shaker kitchen style or island, fitted or unfitted.
Beyond the kitchen cabinetry, you have an unlimited choice of handles, knobs, work tops and colours that allow you to create a period shaker kitchen or a wonderful contemporary style. Our kitchens are hand painted so whether you require a period colour from Farrow and Ball or something more unique for a more contemporary look, you are unlimited in the choice of colour.
Whether you design your kitchen yourself or you use our design service, we are with you all the way. A kitchen is a very emotive and personal purchase and our dedication to 'hard work and perfection’, as the Shakers believed will provide you with a truly unique bespoke kitchen of the highest quality and value for money.
