In a world where handle-less and slab doors seem to be taking over the kitchen style stakes; it may be surprising to some that the Shaker door is still high on the hit list for kitchen buyers. In 2016, we saw a 16% increase in Shaker style doors sales compared to that of 2015.
So what is it that makes the Shaker door so appealing? Well, we only need to look at the origin on the Shaker door to see why.
‘Shaker furniture is a distinctive style of furniture developed by the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing, commonly known as Shakers, a religious sect that had guiding principles of simplicity, utility and honesty. Their beliefs were reflected in the well-made furniture of minimalist designs.’
Note; minimalist design. This is the glaringly obvious reason why Shaker style kitchens are still so popular. Consumers like plain, simple and traditional design. Just like the Shakers shunned showing-off, the traditionalist of today favours practicality and versatility.
