White Shaker Kitchen

Almost every Pinterest board, interior magazine and home improvement show features a white Shaker kitchen. It’s a popular choice among homeowners thanks to its fresh, clean classic appearance. It’s also the perfect choice for anyone who wishes to follow the minimalist interior trend that we’ve seen over the last decade.

A white kitchen is pure, bright and as it will reflect so much light, it can also make your space look much bigger than it is. This timeless style has an elegant simplicity that effortlessly complements the traditional Shaker kitchen design with its flat-panel cabinets and clean lines.

Designing a white Shaker kitchen

As you can see with this white Shaker kitchen, the cabinets are hand-painted in a crisp white (colour-matched to Farrow & Ball Wimborne White) which blends beautifully with the natural elements of the room. This simple, neutral palette is understated yet stylish and creates a light and airy aesthetic.

What really makes white so appealing is its versatility — there’s so much you can do to create a Shaker kitchen bespoke to you. White doesn’t have to mean boring. Using it as a backdrop can allow you to be more experimental with other elements in the scheme, such as tiles, backsplashes or soft furnishings. The bold orange pantry is the perfect example of this, accenting this luxurious design feature with a striking pop of colour without overwhelming the space.

Key Features:

  • Cabinets hand-painted in Farrow & Ball Wimborne White
  • Pantry hand-painted in Farrow & Ball Charlotte's Locks
  • Worktop in Buttermilk Silestone and Colonial Dream granite with an oak circle
  • Quooker taps in a polished chrome finish

The oak breakfast bar and granite worktops incorporated into the kitchen island prevent the room from feeling cold and clinical. Cookbooks and other essentials can be easily stored and accessed from the open shelving, which also breaks up and adds interest to the space. While the farmhouse-style sink and stone flooring gives your home a rustic feel with a country touch.

The silver accents (the cabinet handles, tap and even the lamp) bring out the crisp whiteness of the room, while the simple glass light pendants add character. White cabinetry will keep your home feeling clean and fresh with an abundance of natural light. Despite its seeming lack of colour, this kitchen is a glorious sight that is guaranteed to make your family and friends feel instantly welcome in calming surroundings.

It’s clear to see just how beautiful and impactful a white Shaker kitchen can be. However, remember that while colours and cabinets are essential design elements, the appliances, lighting and kitchen hardware you pick are just as important to complete the look.
