How To Make Your Shaker Kitchen One Of A KindBy Expert Author: Steve Mathews
The Shaker kitchen’s originates from a religious breakaway sect from the Quakers in Manchester, known as the 'Shakers' after the shaking motions they used in their worship. Settled in New England they are well known for their simple hand crafted furniture and kitchen style as for their religion. Today this distinctive style of kitchen design is even used today. Here, we give you tips to make your shaker kitchen, one of a kind
Paneled unit doors are a prominent in the shaker style, but it should be plain and simple. Natural woods like cherry, walnut and maple are the favorite choices for this kitchen. The shaker cream and white kitchens are a favorite with a muted green or grey- blue color combination. Rich reds and deep blues are excellent to accent a color but it can be over powering if over used. Experts at Sleek and illya Shaker cream and white kitchens suggest, painting units in glossy white for a contemporary twist. For cabinets and drawers, oversized wood or china knobs are a common element, but smaller knobs of stainless steel matching the unit color are subtle alternatives.
Use the space for freestanding furniture that will give your kitchen a uniqueness like tall cupboards to hide mops and brooms, spice racks, deep cupboards to maximize storage. Dressers or glazed cupboards make ideal furnitures to show off your china. In large kitchens, you can have a huge island unit that can be studded all around with appliances which is much less conspicuous than being placed on the walls. If there is space for a table, ensure that there is wooden top and painted legs to give it the more traditional shaker kitchen look. A typical shaker chair is upright, with three horizontal bars across the back and hand woven fabric seats. Experts at Sleek and illya Shaker cream and white kitchens suggest an alternative to this by using any country style chair with a cloth on the seat.
• Other elements
Since there is limited place in this kitchen for intricate moldings, try not add fancy cornices, pillars or fretworks. The natural wooden peg rail is a prominent feature in any Shaker cream and white kitchens. This horizontal strip of wood pegs is designed to make the floor clutter free where you can hang your items off it. It can be places behind the door, for baskets, hand cloths and cooking Glovers or above the worktop for utensils. Experts from Sleek and illya Shaker cream and white kitchens suggest using open shelving instead of a more boring set of doors to show off your kitchen wares. The yellow or cream basket storage works perfectly for the Shaker cream and white kitchens, giving it a more country look especially against wood units and worktops.
