When the question ‘what is important in a kitchen’ comes up, most people’s answers would be framed around functionality. There is also another important aspect aside from functionality — style. It is always suggested to go for a timeless style and aesthetic for a kitchen. Why? Because classic designs last longer than passing trends. On that note, we would like to introduce you to one of the most popular and timeless styles in kitchen design: shaker-style cabinets. 

What are shaker-style cabinets?

Shaker-style cabinets are simple and easy to maintain

Shaker-style cabinets got its name from its creators, the Shakers, a 19th-century religious community. Governed by simplicity and utility, shaker cabinetry exudes a minimalistic look. 

A four-piece frame surrounding a recessed centre slab is what defines shaker cabinetry. The reason behind its popularity is that it is simple and easy to maintain. Moreover, it can fit in any kitchen design, be it traditional or modern. 

Without further ado, let’s look at some shaker-style cabinet designs by Livspace.
