White Cabinets / Shaker Kitchen Cabinets

If you are planning a kitchen remodel, you’ve probably heard the term shaker cabinets. But what are shaker cabinets, and how do I know if they are the best cabinet option for my kitchen?

What Are Shaker Kitchen Cabinets?

Shaker Kitchen Cabinets are a minimalist but sturdy style of kitchen cabinets that have been around since the 1800s. You read that right, the 1800s. The style was developed by a religious group called the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing but later became known as the Shakers. They were well-known craftsmen who used simple, sturdy, and durable designs in their furniture. Their style has not only survived but flourished in modern times.

Shaker Kitchen Cabinets are recognizable from their simple designs that use as little material as needed. They lack anything ornamental, instead simply having box-shaped, flat surfaces with sharp edges and rails for handles.
