Essex Kitchen Designs with EKB – The Shaker Kitchen

Choosing your perfect kitchen design is crucial to meeting your exact requirements. That is why the Essex Kitchens & Bedrooms team have put together a range of short but informative blog posts covering the many kitchen designs that you can choose from. This week we are discussing another classic style Shaker Kitchens Essex.


These kitchens are the embodiment of simplicity. Shaker’s believe a good life should be lived with principals and honesty. Their homes were a reflection on this; everything should be practical with no frills and ornaments.

In the modern world, we have come to love the craftsmanship that goes into the shaker 5-piece door, which has become the signatory style. It is a timeless classic and it still proves to be one of our best-selling kitchens.


Here at Essex kitchens & Bedrooms, our shaker doors can be customised with intricate beading options. We also offer a contemporary slab door for those who want the ultimate minimalist look.

Whether you want your kitchen in a single colour or a combination of contrasting tones you are bound to find a colour that suits your taste from our beautiful colour pallet. If you are looking for a truly bespoke finish, we also offer a paint to match service; which is ideal if you have the perfect colour in mind.

Shaker kitchens fit perfectly into a traditional property

The beauty of a shaker style kitchen is that it fits perfectly into a traditional property. But it can also be updated for a more contemporary setting. Keeping lines simple is the key to this style, however, this does not mean you have to compromise on creativity. Small details can have a big impact on the design, such as the handles you choose. Worktops are equally important as they can transform the look just by mixing different textures; such as wood with marble or granite.

The shaker kitchen design is the perfect combination of traditional and contemporary. This could be the perfect style to fit your home improvements, Essex! If you would like some further information about our services, get in touch today by calling our Essex showroom on 01621 893491.
