WHAT IS SHAKER STYLE?

Simple Square Edge

Our Shaker kitchen cabinets refer to a traditional style of cabinet design characterised by its simplicity, clean lines, and functional design. Shaker cabinets have a five-piece door and drawer front with a recessed centre panel. The doors and drawers feature a flat, straightforward design with minimal ornamentation or decorative detailing. Shaker-style cabinets are renowned for their enduring appeal, blending seamlessly with various kitchen designs, from traditional to modern.

TRADITIONALLY HUNG

In-Frame

All our doors are hung in-frame, meaning they are positioned inside a frame rather than on the outside, which can lead to sagging over time. This style imparts a distinctive and classic appearance to the kitchen. In-frame cabinets are renowned for their robustness and longevity, making them the preferred choice for those seeking a traditional and elegant kitchen design. They are often associated with high-quality craftsmanship and are our top choice for bespoke kitchen designs.

Despite the lack of ornamentation, the simple artistry of the furniture is the charm and has remained timeless over many centuries. The Shakers were a religious group that believed that beauty rests on utility. The clean design originates from the principles of simplicity and honesty, they believed in making something well whilst displaying understated elegance and care. The simple square frame style can bring a sense of order and calm to a room that’s usually the busiest in the home.

OUR ETHOS

Our Ethos

Victorian inspired kitchen

It’s an ethos that’s continued right through to today. At The White Kitchen Company, we aim to deliver functionality and high-quality craftsmanship within every shaker kitchen cabinet we make. A core component of our quality is the ‘Mortise and Tenon joint’. We use this type of joint in construction to give the highest strength to our shaker kitchens. They often fall into the classic category because of their five-piece, country-style doors. All our doors are hung in-frame. Where the doors hang inside a frame instead of hanging on the outside like cheaper units.

A solid wood kitchen is a valuable investment for any home and it is important to choose a style that is both practical and reflective of your personality. Our furniture is all about minimalism, function and quality and is handmade using both modern and traditional techniques. We combine traditional design with modern practicality. Our understated fitted and freestanding furniture should appeal to anyone who appreciates simple styling and fine English cabinetry.
