            From choosing sultry shades to adding aged accents, these shaker kitchen ideas provide different ways to create a framed cooking space that is chic and timeless. Thanks to the five-piece design, shaker kitchen designs have a classic look that is far from being old-fashioned and can be styled to suit any home and budget. Explore on-trend looks and real examples from our customer's homes, to inspire a shaker transformation.


            • 1. Neutralise your base

              The best framed schemes start with a neutral base. Light-grey fronts have space-enhancing benefits - great for a small shaker kitchen idea.
            • 2. Build in blue

              On-trend blue is the way to go if you want a fashion-forward design. This hue has a luxe feel that pairs well with the classic appearance of shaker cupboards.

            • 3. Natural and nurturing

              Reconnect with the outside world by selecting green units. For a large shaker kitchen idea, pick a dark tone to draw a space in for a cosier feel.

            • 4. Customise your colour

              Many shaker cabinets can be painted, making them good for custom layouts. They can also be refreshed in new shades over time for an on-trend interior.
            • 5. Trust in solid timber

              For a long-lasting layout, pick our Chilcomb solid-timber fronts, like This grained style is 20mm-thick, for a premium look. 
            • 6. Save on Witney

              Shaker schemes have a classic design that creates a high-end feel. Replicate this aesthetic in a low-cost way with our Witney fronts, which are 16mm thick.
            • 7. Frame in style

              Elevate a shaker interior by adding in-frame trims to cabinetry. Once fitted by a tradesperson, they will create a border around the front for visual interest. 
            • 8. Buy into beaded

              Enhance a shaker scheme by choosing beaded cupboards, like our Elmbridge style, which has an ornate detail that is inspired by stately interiors. 
            • 9. Border on modern

              @thehandlerhouse shows how to modernise a shaker style kitchen using our Chelford units. These have a matt finish and wide border for a contemporary look.
            • 10. Perfect a pantry

               See how @gregjrutherford has created a traditional pantry by pairing a larder with oak door balconies, which maximise every inch of space.
